Aisle Be There

Aisle Be There
As a curator for the National Gallery of Art, Nina O’Neil is surrounded by one-of-a-kind beauties of bygone eras. Such masterpieces seem to have spurred her collection of matrimonial accessories, Ciao Sposa (Ciaonina.com). Whimsical veils (shown, $280), fascinators and boutonnieres are crafted of vintage lace, repurposed wedding dresses and feathers from Paris. Any would elevate your big day.

Joe in A Jar
Wake up and unscrew the coffee: Grady’s Cold Brew is made using freshly roasted beans and chicory for a mellow, New Orleans-style cup of java ($30 for two 32-ounce bottles, Gradyscoldbrew.com). Pour it over ice and milk or warm it on the stove for a quick and buzzy bev. But be warned: It’s concentrated, so you might want to water the potion down.

Beachy Clean


You’ve mastered fresh-from-the-waves head of hair. Next, invite the coastal trend into your abode with Caldrea’s line of household products in its newest scent: Rosewater Driftwood ($9-$38, Caldrea.com). Detergents, candles and hand lotions inspired by beach-house living boast dreamy notes of cedar and camomile, making such everyday chores as laundry and dish-washing a little sweeter.

Look Hue’s Here!
your favorite bookcase with a dull name (um, Ikea’s Billy) moves beyond birch veneer this spring. Special 2013-only riffs on the novel-stashing, room-dividing furnishing include versions with a bright-orange foil back (shown, $50, Ikea stores), a black-and-white pattern and more.

Sunshine Statements
Faux coral chandeliers, peacock-green chairs and flamingo-pink columns make the new Lilly Pulitzer store at Tysons Galleria (2001 International Drive, McLean, Va.; 703-564-4301) look like the lair of some swinging Palm Beach granny. But the updated preppy men’s, women’s and girl’s clothes here look mod enough to suit her hip descendents: lace cocktail frocks ($395), pink zebra-print capris ($168) and a colorful tote ($78) printed with alligators and a map of Florida.
