Heritage Auctions' December 7 and 8 Luxury Accessories Auction, Catherine D. Anspon A ntwerp artisan Eddy Dankers of Dankers Décor Belgium has spent decades perfecting the exquisite lime-based plaster and mineral paints he uses on interiors projects around the world. A purveyor to the Royal Family of Belgium, Dankers comes from a line of talented artists who hearken back to the Dutch Golden Age. Domingue Architectural Finishes — a new collaboration with Houston-based Chateau Domingue owner Ruth Gay — is a game-changer. The retail toolkit includes Dankers' all-natural, nontoxic lime washes and mineral paints, from $26. Both can be used on floors or walls, inside or out. Says Gay, "It's unparalleled in its beauty." Chateau Domingue, 713.961.3444, Rebecca Sherman The Belgian CONNECTION O True Apothecary E verything old is new again. In the East Village 165 years ago, Kiehl's (then called Brunswick Apotheke) opened at Third Avenue and Thirteenth Street as an old-world apothecary. Until the 1980s, the founding family created tailor-made skin and hair remedies on-site for customers out of high concentrations of efficacious natural ingredients and pharmaceutical actives. Now Kiehl's has gone back to those roots, launching a full skincare personalization service, Apothecary Preparations, in select cities, including Dallas. Step into the shop for a complimentary consultation with a Kiehl's rep, who will assess your skin concerns via a dermatologist- inspired skin atlas. Two Targeted Complexes (redness, wrinkles, rough texture, large pores, or dullness) will be determined, and blended with Skin Strengthening Concentrate for a custom formula with personalized label detailing the formula and usage directions. The final concentrate retails for $95 and is only available in-store following the consultation. Kiehl's, 80 Highland Park Village, 214.559.0700; and NorthPark Center, 214.265.5951.
