2006 Best Home Accessories, North


We’re not typically the nesting types, but thanks to Wishbasket, our pied-à-terre has been looking practically hibernation-ready. Once inside the French country shop, we find ourselves stocking up on rustic dinnerware, super-soft throws, current cookbooks, and specialty sea salts. Once, we even walked out with bath soaps labeled ‘bonjour’ and ‘bonne nuit.’ Our purchases have changed our minds about quiet evenings at home. Or at least evenings spent quietly admiring our new home accessories.
