In a beautiful Chicago loft that combines industrial cool with pure romance, our featured Tastemaker Margo Breznik makes an end of the week girls night in a sexy rock n roll fete.
Margo is the founder and creative director of Tatine Candles - a design and manufacturing studio that handcrafts expertly scented candles, soaps and lotions.
Dana and Margo met years ago at the NY Gift Show. Like flies to a flame, the two women who each have a deep devotion to rock n roll found each other and became fast friends.
We asked Margo to choose some pieces from our collection to add to her own and create an evening at home. After a long week at the studio working her alchemy she looks forward to the comforts of home, a great bottle of wine and a visit with her sister Denile.
While Sundays are meant for all day cooking and mid-week she may stop in at a favorite Chicago haunt, on Friday nights Margo prefers something cool and easy. Starting with a glass of champagne and salty treats like Kalamata olives, toasted Spanish almonds and always potato chips the sisters discuss the dailies of their lives. With just the right playlist to set the mood to discuss the latest rock tome she or Denile are reading they move on to a little behind the scenes gossip about the men of rock they blush over…Jimmy Page, David Bowie, Paul McCartney…of course.
With a few of her subtly fragrant candles infusing the air and casting a warm glow, dinner is more of a graze. A mix of charcuterie and cheeses including a little Humboldt Fog, Sopressata, Salumi and Prosciutto paired with a good bottle of white wine crusty Italian bread and olive oil. No need to fuss to create a beautiful table and the feeling of luxury. Here she chose from our Kashmir collection to combine with natural wood boards, moroccan clear glass and copper toned cutlery. The backdrop of succulents and flowers adds more romance to the vibe. It’s amazing how just a few special pieces can dress up an easy night in so needed after putting in a good week’s work.
