DISTINCTIVE URBAN RELICS

Walk into the newly opened Tête à Tête in Colleyville, and you’ll soon realize this isn’t your average home decor store. Owned by locals Troy and Betty Grant, the shop offers customers an eclectic mix of one-of-a-kind home decor pieces that were carefully hand-picked by the Grants. With furniture and accessories that span multiple decades and style trends, items in the store might range in age from 6 weeks to 600 years on any given day. Make note, though: If you find something you like, you’d better act fast. Inventory changes frequently, so you don’t want to miss out on a piece you won’t find anywhere else. The store is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m.Tuesday-Saturday at 3919 Colleyville Blvd., Colleyville, 817-856-9383, http://thetete.net.

MEET MARCO

Jewelry designer Marco Bicego, known for his “everyday luxury” approach to fine jewelry, comes to Neiman Marcus Ridgmar, 2-4 p.m. July 18, with the latest pieces from his eponymous collection, crafted from gold and precious gemstones in northern Italy. 2100 Green Oaks Road, Fort Worth, 817-738-3581.

SLEEPING IN STYLE

Looking to upgrade your bedroom style? Then head to Fort Worth boutique Maven and check out its newest selection of John Robshaw Textile bedding. Made in India and bursting with color, the Nikolo Collection features a beautiful medallion pattern in a cheerful palette of purples, pinks and greens. Pieces in the collection, which includes sheets, decorative pillows and a duvet, range from $70 to $360. 3811 Camp Bowie Blvd., Fort Worth, 817-731-8545.

TRAVEL-SIZED STYLE

The irritations of air travel are numerous, starting with the rule about liquids. If you’ve ever spilled your favorite shampoo trying to funnel it into a microscopic-sized flask or wondered what a hotel’s private-label conditioner is doing to your prized salon highlights, this intel is for you: Lemongrass Salon now features a “travel tree” display in each of its locations stocked with all your favorite Aveda products, in carry-on sizes ($4-$6.50). You’ll find shampoos, foot cream, hair sprays, men’s grooming products and more. And for those who are determined to DIY, there’s even an attractive travel kit ($16) filled with tiny empty containers. Selections vary by salon, so if you have your heart set on a particular product, it may be wise to call ahead. 6370 Camp Bowie Blvd., Suite 128, Fort Worth, 817-484-1155; 1612 S. University Drive, Suite 403, Fort Worth, 817-332-1155; and 219 Grand Ave., Southlake Town Square, Southlake, 817-442-0800.

CLINIQUE’S NEW NAIL OPTIONS

Sensitive-skin types will appreciate Clinique’s new line of nail enamel specially formulated to guard against eye and skin irritation (think of how many times you touch your fingertips to your eye area). But these brilliant hues ($16) are most eye-catching to anyone who appreciates fabulous nails — colors range from natural shades like “Call My Buff” to true red to alternative shades like “Indie Rock” and “Made of Steel.” A sure hit is “Black Honey,” inspired by the beloved Almost Lipstick shade. Available at all Clinique counters.

ZOOM ZOOM!

Get ready to start your engines in iconic Italian style, because Maserati is coming to Fort Worth. Last month, Mayor Betsy Price helped break ground on the site that will be the home of Park Place Maserati at 5760 Bryant Irvin Road. The location also will host a new body shop to provide service and repairs. Both are slated to open spring 2014.
