After years of planning and months of searching for exquisite, unique and elegant home accessories that truly deserve a place in your home, we’ve launched Dujardin Home! My vision was to create an online shop that offers an edited, curated collection of very special items, the kind of things that elevate your home, and your life, from the ordinary to the amazing.
Just in time for the holidays, you can find fabulous gift ideas and items to elevate your parties to a stunning new level. Come take a peek at:
Handcrafted in the United States with pre-consumer recycled sailcloth and marine grade fabric, this is the kind of tote bag you’ll take everywhere. The designers in my office use it to organize fabric samples, friends love how roomy it is when they use it as an airplane carryon, and of course it works perfectly for the beach! You’ll need one for yourself, but they also make the perfect, usable gift.
Our nautical pillows are custom-made for Dujardin Home, so you won’t find them anywhere else. Inspired by maritime signal flags, add one for a punch of color, or three or more to make a statement. They’re perfect for the beach house, or anywhere you want to dream of the sea.
There are throws, and then there are our throws, made from Baby Alpaca wool. This is the softest, most luxurious fiber in the world, better than cashmere for warmth and comfort. It’s hypoallergenic, so it always feels smooth against your skin, without that wooly itching, and perfect for anyone with allergies or asthma. And of course ours are made naturally, with no chemicals or bleaches used during processing. Baby Alpaca refers to the very finest, most rare Alpaca fibers, not fleece sheared from babies. But it’s soft enough to wrap your baby in, no matter how young or old!
We had to go all the way to Prague for this heirloom quality crystal, made to our specifications with an etched compass rose. Mouth blown by Czech artisans, an old firm of established glassmakers created these exquisite pieces especially for Dujardin Home. You can set a sparkling holiday table with clear crystal, luminescent blue or deep sea-colored ink, or mix and match. It’s no secret that I love the ocean, and the compass rose is one of my most treasured symbols to use when designing homes. It’s been used on nautical charts for centuries. Whenever I see it, I’m a sailor in my heart.
Home decor stores have proliferated in recent years, with the result that many homes are beginning to have a sameness from room to room. Designing your home is a very personal journey, but I always recommend that when your budget dictates that you choose mass produced furniture, add some pieces that are unique to you. Antiques fit the bill, but I’ve also included special “one-of-a-kind” items in my collection to help make your home uniquely your own. You won’t see these framed nautical prints or vintage sterling tableware anywhere else!
To help you pull it all together and create the healthy, eco-elegant home of your dreams, I’ve written a book. Comfort Zone: Creating the Eco-Elegant Interior draws on my decades of work as a LEED Accredited interior designer. I’ve had the pleasure of designing some of the world’s most beautiful homes, in some of the world’s most stunning locations. I share what I’ve learned in my book, because I believe that A Healthy Home is the Ultimate Luxury. (TM)
I want that luxury to be yours.
