Tory Entertains: Tory’s Table

“One of my favorite things to do is set a beautiful table when I’m having friends over for dinner, lunch or brunch. It’s something my mom Reva did — even family dinners every night were set with fresh flowers, her favorite tureens and printed linens. I carry through my love of print and color into how I entertain. Here, purple flowers I cut from the garden pick up the fresh greens and linens and plates in soft blues. Our linens and spongeware pieces from our new home collection are in my favorite color combination, blue-and-white. It brightens up the whole table. I added in different textured vases — all in bright white — that I found on my travels or in flea markets. I love pieces that have a story behind them. It all plays off natural wood and rattan touches in the hurricanes, silverware and chairs.” — Tory

Photographers Glen Luchford & Doug Bruce On: <br>Venice Beach & The Rose Hotel

If the name Glen Luchford doesn’t ring a bell, his images certainly will — the photographer is famous for his fashion images, from captures of the Nineties grunge scene to his innovative work for Prada, Dazed & Confused and Vanity Fair. Now, he’s tackling a new front: the hospitality industry. Together with fellow lensman Doug Bruce, a longtime friend, he’s opened The Rose Hotel on Venice Beach. So how did two Brits end up taking over 15 Rose Avenue in sunny Southern California? We find out…

Insta-Scene: Waterside

We’re savoring every last bit of summer that’s left, so here’s a little Mediterranean-inspired summer dreaming — from Positano, Ibiza, Portofino and Greece — courtesy the Instagram accounts of tastemakers (clockwise from top left) Garance Doré, Caroline Sieber and Giovanna Battaglia as well as Tory’s own.

Insider’s Guide: Waris Ahluwalia’s Venice

Few love Venice more than New Yorker Waris Ahluwalia. It’s why he chose the Floating City (or is it Queen of the Adriatic or City of Canals? All of them!) to open his very first store Rare, a charming den of curiosities, at the fabled Gritti Palace. Here, he lays Venice’s best kept secrets out for us. And if you’re there for the Venice Film Festival, he recommends 1973’s Don’t Look Now, a classic thriller starring Julie Christie to set the mood.

Mentorship: Momofuku’s Sue Chan

To say “Momofuku” in NYC is to elicit a Pavlov-like response among foodies for its inventiveness (don’t miss Momofuku Milk Bar’s winning Birthday Cake). As Brand Director, Sue Chan, right, wearing Tory’s Petite Simone cardigan and Klarissa skirt, is at the forefront of everything new and exciting that chef David Chang and his mini-army are creating. She and her intern Nicole Bertrand, in Tory’s Gemma dress, compare notes on ambition and confidence.

As Seen In: Architectural Digest

Bright lacquered walls mix with smart antique pieces and strong personal touches to differentiate the Daniel Romauldez-designed New York offices of Tory Burch. Architectural Digest takes a tour of the interiors here.

Word of Mouth: Nancy Meyers’ The Intern

Beautiful loft spaces, head shots of Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway and… Edward Hopper’s 1942 painting of nighttime loners seated at a city diner? The connection here is in the photo, top right, of Nancy Meyers’ mood board for her upcoming film The Intern, starring — you guessed it — De Niro and Hathaway. The workplace comedy turns the usual mentorship formula on its head — Hathaway plays the founder of an e-commerce fashion company (that’s her tidy office, lower right) and De Niro, her 70-year-old senior citizen intern. Others in the cast include Rene Russo, Veep’s Reid Scott and Meyers’ own former mentee, her onetime assistant Jason Orley in his acting debut. As for how this all ties together with Hopper’s most famous work, you’ll have to wait a full year till the movie’s release in September 2015. Or keep checking Meyers’ Instagram for more teasers like those here.

Mentorship: Interior Designer Bunny Williams

In the hierarchy of interior design doyennes, Bunny Williams, right, reigns queen bee. The New York City-based tastemaker’s celebrated interiors boast a certain regal elegance that marries classical details with mixed prints and a modern attitude. Refined yet fresh, her creations (think stately European antiques paired with splashy animal prints) extend beyond the home to her Upper East Side boutique, Treillage. For Tory Daily, Williams lends her expertise to the next generation of aspiring decorators, including intern Kristin Kelly here.
