Favorite Things: Bebe’s

Bringing elegance home



 



If February is the month of love, then Bebe’s, 6480 Avondale in Nichols Hills Plaza, is just the place for you to fall into it. And it’s that “love at first sight” kind of love.
 

Forget the cliché about judging a book by its cover; the window displays at Bebe’s are incredible, and once inside the doors, you will find yourself completely smitten. This is, of course, not by accident. Karen Samis, who began her ownership of Bebe’s by buying it from her good friend Bebe MacKellar in 2001, is a true artist, and her palette is the store. With amazing artisans from John Derian to Jill Rosenwald as starring presences, the selection is perfect in every way.

“My mother influenced me greatly,” Samis says, “especially in artistic ways.” She further added that she wasn’t referring just to the traditional ways of painting and sculpting, but cooking, entertaining and decorating their home. It’s no surprise, then, that each of those endeavors are represented and well stocked in Bebe’s, in addition to a well-rounded selection of items for gift giving. Be it a high-end treasure or a beautifully chosen affordable gift, you are sure to find what you need.

Samis herself is a treasure, always wanting the best for those around her, with a generous and welcoming spirit that permeates the shop. Your retail love is waiting.

John Derian for Astier De Villatte color palette serving plate, $190 “I use this for a spoon rest.” | Jill Rosenwald bowl, $330 “I love most blue and white, especially this pattern, because it reminds me of papel picado.” | John Derian jewel heart paperweight, $46 “I love John. He is a dear friend and the most talented person I know. If you are in NYC, his shops are a must!” | Rotter Glas double old-fashioned glass, $340 “Very expensive, but all cocktails taste better in a beautiful glass. Check out their Instagram and you will appreciate the price.”
 



(L to R)

Deborah Sears posset pot, $350 “The shape says it all.” | Griottines cherries, $25 “My favorite cocktail cherry by far, and I have tried them all.”
 




(clockwise from left)

Christian Tortu vert frais candle, $66 “It takes me to my happy place! Who understands scents better than a Parisian florist?” | John Derian butterfly paperweight, $60 “Our customers’ go-to hostess gift is a John Derian paperweight. The first piece of John Derian I had is over 25 years old, and of course, it is a butterfly.” | Lafco chamomile lavender soap, $11 “The fragrance is so clean, and it is a luxurious little gift for the price.”
