I love the simple, stylized illustrations of Fran Aldea- Chilean illustrator and designer. With a few simple lines she somehow truly captures the essence of her subject. I especially love her portrait of my friend, Diego.
Feel like a classic beauty ringing in the new year wearing Hermes Elixir Des Merveiles (recommended by our friend Allison of Ladybird Boutique). Carry a festive tray of numbered champagne flutes to your guests a la Martha Stewart
PS- read more about our friend Allison and her store here- in Lonny Mag!
We hope St. Nicholas brings you everything your heart desires tomorrow. Merry Christmas everyone, enjoy the magic. Love, RB.

Here are some great last minute gift ideas you'll find here at Rose Bredl, all for under $100
Meeting your best girlfriend for a holiday brunch (we suggest Northstar Cafe)? Wear these adorable shoe clip-ons by Ban Do. Make your friend feel special by gifting her this luxurious K Hall soap in girly but sophisticated Peony.
This is Kevin Reiner of Kevin Reiner Design- he popped in the shop today to pick up some Christmas goodies- but we wont reveal what he has wrapped up there, just in case you should happen to be the recipient! Kevin is a great friend and an amazing designer for both home and garden. He was kind enough to answer a few questions for our blog, too.
What is your favorite holiday song?
Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree
And your favorite host/hostess gift?
Definitely something organic- like a beautifully tied bundle of bulbs
If you were taking something home for yourself today, what would it be?
Plume's Vanilla Infused Sake candle... you can burn it in the evening and still wake up to its amazing scent.
Thanks so much Kevin! We hope to see more of you!
... it is to pot on a bright and (freezing) day- HEY! Cute potted paperwhite bulbs, planted in campo de fiori pots and all set to go out as holiday gifts. And it seems our friend Nick from Mccullough's was feeling likewise today- read about it here!
Thank You Kimberly Potterf Photography for sharing your beautiful photos of Amanda and Mike's wedding. We loved working with this amazing couple, with such a fun style all their own- and check out that gorgeous magnolia and eucalyptus garland!
