Last week in Napa, I happened upon the Yountville outpost of Forty Five Ten, the dreamy designer boutique in Dallas, one of the few shops I have ever truly loved. Maybe it was the influence of all the flowers I was seeing in the area, but I absolutely fell in love with this outrageously expensive springy jacket. ($1,290) – Pavia, CEO

My drink of choice? Anything to do with mezcal. So of course I can't wait to try invigorating, detoxifying mezcal tea. It's not alcoholic, nor is it made with any part of the agave plant. It's a combination of ingredients reminiscent of the notes you normally pick up in a mezcal drink: hibiscus, black pepper, espelette chili, ginger, and clove. Sounds like just the kick I'm looking for in the mornings. – Daniel, editor

While I'm on the subject of beautiful expensive things I saw in Napa last week, I loved all the knives at New West KnifeWorks in St. Helena. The Jackson Hole-based company was started by a former cook who makes tools that that are as artful as they are functional. They sell knives in all sizes, and also spatulas and mashers, all with gorgeous and colorful wood handles. (From $49 for a spatula. The knife set in the photo is $1,722). – Pavia

I am coveting a copy of Lena Späth’s tome on Iran’s interior design scene. With an urban design history that dates back more than 4,000 years, it’s about time someone takes a look inside the country’s stylish, boho-chic homes. (From $65) – Berit
