camel trend

I self admittedly have an obsession with antique figurines and my book case is starting to over flow with smalls. I am totally on the hunt for some great brass animals and I am loving this camel trend I'm seeing around lately.  And its absolutely inspired by vintage pieces. 

What animal themed trends have you been seeing lately?

favorite blog posts #1

I spent the majority of my mornings combing through what seems to be an endless array of blogs for inspiration. At the end of the week I find there are a few posts that have stuck with me, inspiring a new
vignette in my apartment, a fresh coat of paint, or a vintage piece I need to find.

What blog posts inspired you this week?

Stylist Tina Helberg

I'm totally having one of those days where its hard to get going and I am procrastinating by looking for inspiration. I am so jealous of stylist Tina Helberg's vignettes and vision.

antiquing advice #1

Starting to take my own advice. From now on if I see antique or vintage piece that makes my heart skip a beat I am not going to hesitate to buy it. No more over-thinking (unless it is a high price point). Too often I pass things up and say I'll come back for it and its gone. Chances are if its a great piece someone else is doing the very same thing.
Here's to the ones that got away.

What pieces have you hesitated on, wishing that you had pulled the trigger?

vintage olympic team photos

I swore on Saturday that I wouldn't get sucked into the Olympics... and then four hours later I was still laying in bed watching men's basketball.

Because I can't seem to lay in bed without my laptop close by and since I have a slight obsession with vintage team photos, I began digging around for some old Olympic images.

Check out these 1924 boxing babes.

I love the mis-matched uniforms.

She is all business.

It's totally okay to have a mustache if you are on the fencing team.

    Are you all getting sucked into watching the games like me?

you don't know (union) jack

With the olympics in full swing, it's time to pay homage to the union jack.
It's iconic, it's on trend, and it's relevant. Not much more you could ask for.

Check out our Union Jack inspired treasury on Etsy.
How are you all bringing a little bit of london into your homes?


I am extremely lucky to work with a group of amazingly talented creative folks everyday. And I am so greatful to have a job that allows me to seek out inspiration on a daily basis. Every now and then I come across an artist whose work transcends my monitor and makes me want to leave my desk, go home and redecorate my entire apartment.

The work of prop stylist SAŠA ANTIĆ did this to me this afternoon while pulling swipe. I want to live on these sets.

Where are you all finding inspiration these days?
