Happy holidays from us to you. There’s no greater time than the present to spend a few extra moments on the softer side of life. We sat down with Farra Miron, a leading lady in prioritizing slow moments. We cozied up in her breakfast nook, surrounded by collected glassware, stacks of vintage plates and love letters from her little ones while eating tin fish and incredible bay leaf bundt cake that she so casually threw together atop her organically chiseled stone table top. As we talked, a few key themes of how Farra was tapping into her soft side came up this season. Below you’ll get a glimpse of how this incredibly talented maker combines the love of well-made food and honest conversation around the table during the most wonderful time of year.Tell us a little about you, Farra.
I am a seeker of warmth and meeting people where they are at in their lives. During the day, I am a stylist and interdisciplinary designer. I love creating experiences.What drew you to spending your time here?
Perhaps cliché, but truly it’s a part of who I was when I was born. ... Art is the disguising of art… it should look like you’ve worked in it forever.What are you prioritizing this season?
Moving with my gut and heart. ... spontaneous and real.What are you hopeful for?
More time to get lost in the kitchen… It’s fun! And how good do they taste? :)What is a must-have around the table?
Butter, good wine, thoughtful table pieces, ... and create an unforgettable evening.Any tips for planning a last-minute holiday dinner party? Low maintenance but makes a statement.
Tinned fish and caviar ... and the right wine or fermented soda.If you could invite anyone to a dinner party you host (dead or alive), who would it be?
