Don't you love it when your friends are on the same wavelength--not only with you, but with each other? It's like you're all living in each other's heads, floating on the same cloud through Nirvana. And that's exactly how I feel about two separate collections this season: the new West Elm Moroccan line-up, and the better-than-ever baubles from Pamela Love. It's a match made in paradise!
Revel in this taste of the exotic with me. Colors like aquamarine, coral, and jade recall the coastlines of the Mediterranean; textures such as raw crystal and rough ceramics make for jagged edges with a hint of danger; and I'm in the mood for an Indiana Jones-style treasure hunt. But in lieu of a voyage across the sands, some hot mint tea from a stoneware mug will have to tide me over.
