Jonathan Adler Jonathan Adler’s gift to style shoppers in Westport is an irresistible 2,700 square feet of whimsical inspiration for the home. While the iconic “Serving Westport” sign from former tenant Achorn’s Pharmacy is the same, the treasures inside Adler’s new boutique are unabashedly modern. Adler says, “I have a raging obsession with WASPy country club style, so the only thing better than having one boutique in Connecticut is having two. I am thrilled!” It offers design services and fab finds for all. The Gold Piggy Bank, for example, sits in the kids’ section, but we all can stash our pennies in style, right? Jonathan Adler, 166 Main Street, 203-221-4567; jonathanadler.com Groove Chandeliers in the dressing rooms are just one of the features that will make anyone feel like a kid in a very chic candy store at Groove, a new children’s boutique in Westport. The selection, curated by Westport moms Corri Neckritz and Erin Berk, includes hard-to-find clothing lines like Wildfox, Splendid Baby, and LA Made; accessories; and a host of gifts that will impress at baby showers and birthday bashes alike. Plus, a bonus for time-strapped moms all too familiar with the preparty gift-wrapping rush: Groove provides gorgeous […]
Style Watch White Birch Studio has it all—from unique gifts to furnishings for the whole house. Incorporating a mixture of vintage, one-of-a-kind, and refurbished items, the showroom strikes a fine balance between modern and vintage, formal and casual. Hillary Fritz, the buying consultant to owner and head designer Susan Anderson, and designer Sara Gardner, says that their offerings feel “fresh, but fresh for a long time”—especially important since pieces that come with a heftier price tag need to have a lasting appeal. You won’t have to look far to find something you’ll love among the studio’s eclectic selection. The huge reclaimed wood table by the entrance is striking and versatile, perfect for a casual dinner with the kids or for a formal affair when decked out with fine china. Go ahead and try not to covet the Mad Men-esque leather writing table, perfectly staged with a bar set of shadow-gray glass. Not exactly an interior designer yourself? White Birch also offers design services—everything from broad plans to the nitty-gritty details. The studio has a separate design space, a kind of cozy library, where you’ll dream up your next big project with the designers. —N.T. 3 Sconset Square, Westport, 203-557-9137; whitebirchstudio.com […]

You know Joanna Gleason’s and Chris Sarandon’s faces from stage and screen. But did you know they live here, in Fairfield? Meet the best new neighbors
Westport Magazine presents a very personal portrait of the artist Hardie Gramatky — it’s written by his daughter
I owe an apology to Joanna Gleason and Chris Sarandon. You see, I love this cover shot of them. They look beautiful and happy, just like the day I met them for the photo shoot — and, yes, before the hair products and designer outfits. What the glamorous image doesn’t show is the most unfussy and unpretentious famous couple imaginable. We dressed Joanna in silk and fur, put jewels around her neck, applied makeup and blew out her hair until she was every inch a radiant Hollywood star. And then we ambushed Chris into the shot without any warning, pulling his best formal jacket from his closet. The couple was styled and photographed for a good part of a day. Now, there’s a lot of us who don’t mind being fussed over. Asking us to try on designer duds or have a professional hairstylist make sure our tresses are perfect is a treat. But what the world has in Joanna and Chris is a pair that is authentically down-to-earth — they just happen to appear in hit TV shows and movies, even cult classics, and perform on Broadway and at Lincoln Center. It’s almost like they don’t know they’re special. […]
