"Keep it simple" and "surround yourself with beauty" are LA native Maddie Sadofski’s decorating mantras. Her glamorous Melrose Avenue shop, Thanks for the Memories, is a mecca for clean-lined original and beautifully restored furniture from the 1920s through the 1970s, paired with fun, one-of-a-kind accessories. For this Tastemaker Tag Sale, Maddie got in the holiday spirit, with a twinkling menagerie of crystal, glass, and myriad complementary pieces with a soupçon of seasonal sparkle.
