I have to say getting back-to-school is a soul-sucking experience. Gone are the organic, free-form days of summer. Now I’m ruled by schedules, and meetings, and all that paperwork!
Which may be why I find myself seeking refuge this week in the calm kitchenware of Speciality Dry Goods (Monday) and Mr. and Mrs. P. (today). Ahhhhh.
The “pet project” of designer and writer team, Evan and Paola Parsons, Mr. and Mrs. P. was conceived over coffee one lazy Sunday morning. (No wonder it’s so cozy and quiet.) The results are a very personal and “honest” space, reflecting the couple’s passion for sustainable style. Most of the select goods are local or handmade. All are immediately appealing: simple, tactile, warm and utterly soothing.
