22 MONOGRAMS AND MIMOSAS WITH MATOUK ANNE LEE PHILLIPS ENTERTAINS. PHOTOGRAPHY JOHNNY THAN. O n a beautiful fall morning, a group of hostesses and interior designers were treated to a first look at Matouk's new collection of linens at Longoria Collection, discussing monograms over mimosas and brunch bites with the stylish Janet Stein, Matouk VP of global sales, who was in from New York. Stein reflected on the storied 90-year history of the third- generation family-owned American luxury linen company, while Longoria's Cherry Brown Damianoff recalled a recent visit to the factory in Massachusetts, where she experienced firsthand the focus on traditional craftsmanship and the new customization offerings. Yours truly, as PaperCity's Houston home design editor, discussed some of my top tips for preparing your home for guests and entertaining. A few takeaways: New bedding is key, along with an extra set of towels and linens wrapped in a pretty grosgrain bow so guests need not request. For another special touch, embroider the initials of a frequent guest onto pillowcases or hand towels for their bath.
