We at DanielleDRollins.com are a team of three single women who stick together and work together to find the most beautiful ways to create unique living spaces that inspire (and laugh a lot along the way.) It takes a village! We love sharing our process with you and in light of her birthday, we have pulled some gift ideas from our recent selections that she would love. We hope you like them too!
Her dear friend Miles Redd is the design genius behind this incredible entrance. How fabulous is that color and handsome hardware? These beauties are sourced from ER Butler and while these may not be in your budget there are plenty of wonderful options out there which will give you this feeling without the dear price.
Lyford Cay is one of her favorite destinations and design inspirations and since we all know Danielle has a “patio furniture problem” let us indulge!
While we know it’s better in the Bahamas, we can’t all live there and you can create your own piece of paradise with some elements from Koverton’s classic line.
Danielle is a big fan of scent and has been wearing Joe Malone ever since she discovered the flagship boutique of this fabulous parfumier on a trip to London in 1999. She found Lime Basil & Mandarin on that fortuitous trip and has been wearing it faithfully ever since.
Scented candles are a staple in all of her environments. They are a perfect way to create an atmosphere of tranquility and subtly lift the spirit of everyone present. She is a huge fan of anything Diptyque, recently featuring their scent Verveine on her table at the Veranda New York Botanical Garden Orchid dinner. We also recommend Gardenia, Musc and Foin Coupe. They make excellent gifts as well, so peruse their collection and find one that you love.
Danielle is an excellent online shopper, able to source incredible finds among the endless hub of shopping that is the internet. We always anticipate the daily arrival of “brown Santa” in his UPS truck. She recently scored a signed Warhol on ebay for a song! Some of her favorite online resources are One King’s Lane, Ebay, Chairish, 1stDibs and ETSY. It’s a shopping mecca for the patient peruser and the rewards can adorn your home for years to come.
Four legged friends are essential members of our working environment and Danielle has three that reward us with soulful looks and wet kisses. If only they weren’t so fearful of car trips, we might take them with us on a trip to our new office at ADAC opening next month! They will have to settle for a brisk walk around the neighborhood instead – followed by a long winter’s nap.
Danielle always has fresh flowers to brighten her spaces. Alex and his team at Cut Flower are very used to seeing her face as she loves to go to their shop and experience the heady atmosphere of thousands of blooms at the peak of their journey. We know she is dreaming up fantasy arrangements in that refrigerator room…we are always excited to experience the fruition of her imagination!
It’s a virtual birthday party for Danielle and we are giving you the gifts! It is the fifth year anniversary of her book offer and in light of this exciting anniversary we would like to give away 5 autographed copies of her gorgeous book to you. All you need to do to enter is share and repost this post on the social media of your choice with hashtag #HappyBirthdayDanielle along with a link to this website. We will be drawing a winner next Friday so be sure and post away!
We’d like to close with an encouragement Miles Redd shared with Danielle on the road to producing her book: “Find happiness in other ways than paint colors!”
Happy Birthday Danielle!
Sonia and Eleanor
