You’re getting older. Settling down. Trading halters for aprons, guitars for juicers, love poetry for soup recipes.
Not so fast.
You’re domesticating, not domesticated.
Anna and Tim Harrington share your need to grow up with style. When they got married and realized they had to forgo superfluous buys (a Slip ’n’ Slide for the roof deck!) for practical, everyday home items, they didn’t like the available options. So they created an innovative home and apparel crossover line that includes everything from handkerchiefs to doggie beds — and gave it a bold name (Deadly Squire) to match the bold prints (like Wandering Oak and Blackbirds After the Harvest).
Nothing’s at all prissy, which means guys will still feel manly wearing oven mitts while holding a tray of meringues. (They also make matching ties. Score!)
Those still enjoying their wild days of freedom (or just in denial about their receding hairlines) can roll out the retro-cut skateboard, which also, come to think of it, would look good hanging on a wall.
Either way, it’ll match the throw pillows.
That’s a hat trick the world’s best soup ladle could never pull off.
