A uld Lang Syne" has been sung, and there's not one more drop of Dom Pérignon. We bid farewell to 2015, ushered in 2016 and, at last, the time has come to make resolutions. We polled the members of team PaperCity for their hopes, dreams and goals for the coming 365 days. The result is quite the ambitious (and fun) to-do list. Be Present: Take a deep breath and meditate. Take Time: Make monthly happy hours at The Mansion Bar a priority; don't forget the truffle fries. Have Manners: No cell phones at the dinner table — ever. Preserve: Renovate old buildings; don't tear them down. Set Roots: Plant milkweed in East Texas for the monarch butterfly migration. See Something: Do the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center and make the trip to Fort Worth to The Modern and the Kimbell. Earn Miles: Jet off at least twice — one domestic destination and one international. Splurge: A Mambo Taxi at Mi Cocina and the occasional chocolate from Kate Weiser never hurt anyone. Look Out: Visit these hot neighborhoods: Harwood, The Cedars and the Design District. Bounce: Learn to do a cartwheel in anticipation of the Summer Olympics in Brazil. Be a Tourist: See the tulips at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden; walk the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge; explore the Trinity River Audubon Center. Give Back: Dedicate at least one hour a month to volunteering for a worthy cause. Trade Up: Less cookies, more kale; more walking, less driving; less criticizing, more complimenting; more books, less Netflix. Purge: Rid the closet of trendy items, keeping the quality basics — Manolos, your Prada Saffiano, that little black dress. Have Social Grace: Become an expert conversationalist by way of chatting with strangers. Make Less More: Embrace the idea that, for home, small is the new big. Print It: Save selfies and iPhone snaps with apps such as Print Studio and Framebridge. Be Kind: Respect opinions and have compassion — especially important in an election year. Reminisce: To celebrate our 18th year in Dallas, pull inspiration from the 17 years' worth of PaperCity magazines, piled tall in our archive. What are you up to this bright New Year? Drop us a line. We would love to hear from you. Christina Geyer Editor in Chief Briana Buxbaum Dallas Associate Publisher in this ISSUE JANUARY 2016 | STYLE | FASHION | SOCIAL 4 , 6 , 7 P O P. C U LT U R E .

Following the debut of its Plano flagship in May, the purveyor of Americana–style watches and accessories has unveiled a boutique in Highland Park Village. The 1,800-square-foot space stocks Shinola's coveted bicycles, handcrafted journals and leather goods, from wallets to backpacks to stylish pouches. "My favorite product is our Runwell leather backpack," says creative director Daniel Caudill. "I've been wearing it for months, and it looks even better worn in." It's worth noting a subtle design difference here: The HP Village environs are decidedly more moody and glossy than the industrial-chic Plano store. But with neighbors Tom Ford and Giuseppe Zanotti, you gotta keep up with the Joneses. Shinola, 51B Highland Park Village, phone number not available at press time, Linden Wilson All Shinola-ed UP D ogs and decorators go hand in hand. Think of Alex Papachristidis' Yorkie, Mary McDonald's pugs, Mark D. Sikes' Frenchie and Nathan Turner's labs. Put a dog in a chic room on the cover of an interior design magazine, and it's bound to be a top seller. Fellow dog lover and L.A. designer Kelly Wearstler has introduced the Kelly Wearstler Dog Collection with three architectural doghouses: Avant ($2,500) made of cerused Douglas fir and adorned with a gold kiss seal; Beau ($3,500) is ebonized walnut; and the show-stopping Juxtapose ($4,500) tops a grid of ipe wood with a burnished bronze sphere. More accessible are marble dog bowls (large $495, small $395), bedding ($1,000) and collars and leashes made of premium leathers and metals, hand- detailed by L.A. artisans ($75 to $325). A portion of proceeds benefits Best Friends Animal Society, a philanthropic organization dear to Wearstler's heart. Anne Lee Phillips Designer's BEST FRIEND Design: And the judges are ...

But, in a stroke of genius — or, dare we say, heresy — sisters and owners Autumn, Jennifer and Dawn Smink are now importing stunning Danish mid-century classics from the House of Finn Juhl and chairs from Brdr. Petersens. The change was all about timing. "I was watching the auction houses and looking at what kind of art and furniture was getting the highest prices," Jennifer says. "We were seeing Finn Juhl and other Danish names going for extraordinary prices." The demand is clearly there. "Most great designers always want at least one sculptural chair in a room," she says. "These Danish pieces fit that to a T." Alas, with dwindling availability, not to mention astronomical prices, original vintage pieces are off-limits to most. So, the Sminks decided to carry new versions of some of the most iconic furnishings directly from Denmark, including Onecollection, which manufacturers Finn Juhl, and Brdr. Petersens, known for its lean and sculptural leather seating. "When you are a tiny showroom like we are," says Jennifer, "you try to keep an edge." Smink, 1019 Dragon St., 214.350.0542, Rebecca Sherman The Danish Dilemma, SOLVED BY SMINK S ailing across the block this month is a nifty mid-century canvas by DeForrest Judd: Red Boats, 1952, estimate $15,000 to $30,000. It's part of the trove of more than 330 lots offered at David Dike Fine Art's legendary Annual Texas Art Auction. Set for Saturday, January 23, 1 pm, conducted at Wildman Art Framing, the sale celebrates its first 20 years, as well as marking the gallery's three decades in the ever-important field of Texas art, from the early 20th century to works by recent contemporary creatives. Of note in this auction, which was culled, vetted and curated from 100 private collections primarily in Texas, are works from the fabled holdings of Sidney and George Perutz. The couple are de-accessioning '80s-era offerings by notables such as Sharon Kopriva, Dee Wolff, Sam Gummelt and the late David McManaway of the intricate alchemical wall sculptures. Also watch for canvases by canonical landscape painters Julian Onderdonk and Dawson Dawson- Watson, as well as the hermetic, sought-after Surrealist Forrest Bess. Rounding out the 20th anniversary auction are modernist headliners included in Katie Robinson Edwards' definitive 2014 volume, Midcentury Modern Art in Texas. Recommended: painters of '50s-era inventive abstraction as the aforementioned DeForrest Judd (no relation to Donald), Chester Toney, Seymour Fogel and Ben Culwell (represented by the patriotic panel, Apple Pie & Fourth of July, 1960-1965).
