Style Tips and Picks with the Editor
After bumping into our Creative Editor Donna Compaglia, at Trattoria Mollie’s on Coast Village Road, I found myself tagging along with her on an impromptu quest to furnish a dinner party she was hosting later that week. Sharing a love for entertaining myself, I was surprised to hear her say that she had a ‘one-stop-shop’ on Coast Village where she knew could go for everything needed for this little soiree. I was invited to accompany her to Legacy, a quintessential Montecito gift shop which is, according to Donna, “the one place in Montecito to find a gift for absolutely anyone.”
Stainless-steel cutlery set
“Lovely, classic and always in vogue, this stainless-steel set is my top pick for the perfect cocktail party.”
Painted decorative pots from China
“I love blue and white tables; one of these gorgeous pots could make a table setting as a stand-alone statement piece. A vase would also be very chic in a guest bathroom.”
Woven bags from Thailand
If you’re bringing a gift to a party, these quintessential woven bags are the perfect gift for the “oh-so-perfect” gal who has everything. Great for so many occasions and any season!
Christian Tortu Candles
“I first discovered Christian Tortu in Paris. He had the quintessential French flower stand that had to be a block long! I happily realized that his candle line is just as impressive. I always have one of these candles (I love Foret) burning somewhere in my home. They lend ambience to any occasion.
