For Aldea Home & Baby's 9th Birthday the staff posed in our signature seasonal rooms. We donned our best black and white outfits trimmed with gold, brass, and leather and waited for our closeups. Thomas Kuoh’s was our DeMille for the day and we loved how they turned out, though we still think the screens have gotten smaller. Presented here with quotes from Coleridge to inspire you with romantic glamour.

Cantwell Muckenfuss (Aldea Ninos Store Manager) and Alyssa Cox (Design Associate) are in the Xanadu Bedroom with the Jonathan Adler’s “Love” & “Lust” pillows and Madini Duvet Cover

A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e’er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon-lover!

In the Bridegroom's bar with the Izola Shaker and Two’s Company Skellington Decanter are Alfredo Vela Chiu (Logistics Manager), Harry Horten (Accountant) and Nicole Conrardy (Marketing Manager)

The ship was cheered, the harbour cleared,
Merrily did we drop
Below the kirk, below the hill,
Below the lighthouse top.

In the Christabel Dining Room with the Canvas Abbesses tabletop collection and Chilewich placemats are Deric Carner (Creative Director), Johanna Bialkin (Owner) and Julia Trujillo (Design Associate) with artwork by Molly Dilworth.

O weary lady, Geraldine,
I pray you, drink this cordial wine!
It is a wine of virtuous powers;
My mother made it of wild flowers.

The Midnight Living Room with Jonathan Adler’s Tic Tac Toe Set and the Four Hand’s Mick Media Cabinet; with Mark Stupi (Design Associate), Valerie Cook (Operations Manager) and Dave Hamilton (Floor Manager) with decorative art by Deric Carner.

The Frost performs its secret ministry,
Unhelped by any wind. The owlet's cry
Came loud—and hark, again! loud as before.
