I’ve known Paulina for a couple of years now. When I was an accessories editor a couple of years ago, I loved seeing her every few months, not only because I liked watching her brand grow, but also because she has killer personal style. We’ve talked about Paulina and her super cute bag brand, Little Liffner, on the site before (you may remember her from this studio visit and this style post!), but we wanted to bring her back today! You can never have too much of a good thing, right?
Home Month at the Atelier means many things, but two of our favorites are: lovely interiors and comfy loungewear. And we’re so excited to bring you this post because it includes BOTH! As well as a super cool woman who has set out to soften the loungewear industry. Ashley Merrill is the Founder of Lunya, a luxury sleepwear company for women that modernizes what comfort can mean. We wear our PJs in our most intimate space–our home!–but, we should love and feel like ourselves in them just as much as the rest of our wardrobes. Ashley gets this. And now she’s giving us a peek into her own home for your Sunday morning viewing pleasure. We hope you’re reading this in your PJs!

About five months ago I stepped into Hayward House and immediately saw that it was a retail experience like no other. Hayward House is located in the Grosvenor Atterbury Mansion in the Upper East Side and contains the flagship store of the brand Hayward, founded by Marin Hopper (daughter of Dennis Hopper and Brooke Hayward). Part retail, part home, part old New York, Hayward House contains thoughtful details at every turn.
Yesterday I dragged Bogdana to the Upper East Side to photograph this beauty of a store, and she left with her jaw dropped, commenting it doesn’t get much more New York than that. While Bogdana snapped away, I sat down and chatted with Marin about how Hayward House came about and the family details she infused in every corner.
