Some people call it summer. Others call it Grilling Season. Call it what you will, it’s nearly here – yaaas! While Memorial Day may be the unofficial start to outdoor cooking season, we plan on firing up the grill long before the end of May. We’re Jones-ing for the rich taste of our favorite Grilled Skirt Steak recipe. And the dudes on the Sports Desk keep repeating the phrase “Fire. Meat. Good.” Clearly, outdoor grilling is a deeply-rooted primal urge – an atavistic act. So, when throwing a steak (or fish, or vegetables) on the grill, which brand is the best?

Or conversely, if you’re looking for a quick sale, what should you do to ensure that your property is au courant?
It’s hygge time, people: midwinter, post Valentine’s Day, spring still just a distant glimmer on the horizon. If you’re in the leisure class – or have the scratch to kick it that way – what does the highest-end embodiment of the Danish and Norwegian concept of winter coziness and comfort look like? Well, dear reader, it starts with the right sound system. After all, the perfect ambiance for a cold winter’s evening demands not just scented candles, cashmere throws, a good Bordeaux and the right reading material. Without the right sound system, the vibe could end up being harsh, not chill. And that would just be wrong.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s just became a lot more fun. This autumn, the 180-year old jeweler unveiled a redesign of the fourth floor of its iconic flagship store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Its dedicated to accessories, tabletop and home décor items, and if you haven’t stopped by, you really should. It’s a new era for the iconic retailer, and just in the nick of time.
We predicted that Gucci would be the force that brings the world together and changes the way we see ornamentation and embellishment for years to come. And now there’s further proof: Gucci is coming home with us – literally. Our smartphones started vibrating like crazy here at Dandelion Chandelier one morning last week. The email subject lines and texts were all pretty much the same: Gucci Décor has arrived! The exclusive new home collection designed by Alessandro Michele includes both furniture and decorative objects. It’s available in New York only at the Gucci flagship store and at Bergdorf’s – and online at Gucci.com. Just in time for New York Fashion Week. And for the upcoming holiday gift-giving season.
