In And Around Westchester, The Home Furnishings That Caught Our Eye

From Warhols to glass balls, check out the design items that can add some unique style to your home; plus, the latest offerings from local authors.


Brooklyn-based Flavor Paper has launched its Andy Warhol collection of wallpapers—and there’s not a shrinking wallflower in the bunch. Produced in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, each wall covering is a remix of the artist’s own works, both iconic and lesser known. Featuring bold colors, large-scale murals, metallics, mixed finishes, and even diamond-dust accents, the collection, which includes Rorschach, Camouflage, and Queen Elizabeth designs, remains true to the eye-popping aesthetic of this artist who challenged the world to see art differently. 

We’re particularly pumped about the Shoes design inspired by the original Polaroids Warhol used for his shoe paintings. It’s available in four hand-screened colorways, but we’re partial to the Blue Suede. Pictured here, it highlights aqua, bright blue, and blue-black shoes on a gold pony-skin foil. The line retails for $220 to $360 per roll for most patterns.

Landscape designer Jan Johnsen’s newest book, Heaven is a Garden: Designing Serene Spaces for Inspiration and Reflection, draws on her 40 years of experience creating beautiful and peaceful gardens. She believes that a serene landscape consists of three primary features: simplicity, sanctuary, and delight. She illustrates that with hundreds of images showing how a simple sweep of a curve, a sheltered corner, and a delightful flowerbed or boulder can work together to create a lovely and inviting setting.

Over the past few years, readers have enjoyed recipes from the county’s top chefs in Westchester Home courtesy of food writer Julia Sexton. With the publication of Hudson Valley Chef’s Table: Extraordinary Recipes from Westchester to Columbia County, she is adding to that bounty with an additional 80 recipes for the home cook from the region’s most celebrated restaurants, along with gorgeous photos by Andre Baranowski. “It was hugely enriching for me to spend a few months driving around the region talking to chefs,” Sexton says. “There’s a new breed of Hudson Valley bohemian taking over the restaurant scene here; chefs are turning away from the punishing restaurant worlds of NYC and Brooklyn (or the Food Network) to open really beautiful restaurants, close to where their ingredients grow.”
