Caring for Luxury Linens

While interviewing us, Coryanne Ettiene, who maintains the blog Kitchen Living with Coryanne and writes for Better Homes and Gardens, asked some astute questions so it occurred to us that sharing them with readers of our Pandora de Balthazár Diary would be fun, especially because she asked us about caring for luxury linens. Cynthia Bogart, whose remarkable site The Daily Basics holds an expansive mix of delicious design and lifestyle eye-candy, suggested that Coryanne speak with us and we were thrilled. We were also tickled to say that Coryanne is now a collector of our luxury linens: “I have gone into high gear turning my bed into what can only be deemed a ‘haven.’ Pandora’s Path to Luxury Linens The...

Style Statements at High Point Market

The custom-built tent me call home while we’re there is a 2,100-square-foot pavilion with flooring and air conditioning that constitutes our Round Top road show.

Trend Talk at Heimtextil

As we listened to the forecasting experts at the Heimtextil tradeshow, everything we believe at Pandora de Balthazár was reflected back to us, making us thrilled to be on the leading edge of introducing wellness into the lives of our clients. “Sleep is such a priority and we are looking for more freshness in the bedroom,” said Lisa White of the World Global Style Network. “We see a trend toward making things warmer—having house warmings and inviting people into our homes with greater frequency because we feel safe there.”   She went on to say that hoteliers will be expected to make their properties feel more like residences if they want the Millennial to frequent their hotels. These are big...

Sweet Dreams Are Made of This

It has occurred to us recently that we at Pandora de Balthazár Lifestyle don’t do enough to honor the wonderful editors who tap our products for publication. We’re out to rectify this oversight today with this diary entry that features Devlin Smith, the editor of a number of Engaged Media’s magazines, including Cottage White and Romantic Homes.   Sweet Dreams at Home   In the fall/winter 2016 issue of Cottage White, her editor’s letter warmly notes the onset of the colder months: “The days are getting shorter, the nights cooler, all signaling that the best place in the world to be is snuggled up at home. With all the energy you’ve put into crafting your dream cottage, it’s important to...
