What makes the perfect registry? Our Dream Registry series answers just that, providing an endless source of inspiration for those putting together their own Over The Moon registries. We enlisted the help of some of our most stylish and in-the-know friends—whether they’re single, engaged, or already married. (Because we’re taking a page from Carrie Bradshaw’s playbook and saying one should be able to register for Manolos no matter what their relationship status!) Peek inside the registries of tastemakers, from editors and stylists to wedding planners and beyond. Your dream registry is just a click away.
Victoria De La Fuente, the brand strategist at development studio Studium:(VDLF), describes her aesthetic as “eclectic, fun, and feminine.” For her new home in Los Angeles, she created mood-boards for different rooms and focused on finding the larger pieces first, in an effort to ground the spaces. “It makes the whole process a lot easier, as it can be daunting to be looking for things without any clear direction,” she advises.
To find these key items, Victoria frequents vintage fairs, live auctions, and online stores. And for inspiration she looks to designers like Gert Voorjans, Roberto Baciocchi, Kelly Wearstler, Dimore Studio, and many others. “I am constantly looking for new inspiration!” she adds.
Since Victoria had lived in apartments for the past 20 years, it was so exciting to have the bigger space that a home offers. With that in mind, her inspiration for her Dream Registry came from the idea of hosting summer garden parties. “After seeing the Dries van Noten documentary a couple of years ago, all I ever wanted was to have my own garden for entertaining,” she says.
We love to see that Victoria mixed fashion pieces into her registry as well, interweaving items from Estelle Colored Glass, Madame de la Maison with Marina Moscone, Staub, and Bea Bongiasca. She sees herself wearing bias-cut dresses while entertaining or a robe while sipping a nice glass of wine—to pair with both, she’s eyeing the Maria Jose three stone Colombian emerald ring.
A must for her when guests are over is the silver Art Deco champagne bucket, sourced by Victoria’s friend and Madame de la Maison founder Ariji in France. “I believe in picking items that tell a story,” Victoria notes. And we couldn’t agree more!
