I have always been enamored with the seemingly effortless style of the safari. Being in the middle of the bush, and still able to serve high tea on the good china just sends me. That said, I don't think being in the middle of the bush is prerequisite to emulating safari style. I think a tent from east african canvas would make for very comfortable guest accommodations... hell, I'd love to live in one.
The collages and jewelry from Catwalk Paper Works are absolutely enchanting. The artist, Felicia Piacentino, uses vintage ephemera and 'paper from everyday life' to create these gorgeous works of art. I'd love to wallpaper a dressing room in prints of 'Bella in Blue.' A framed 'When I was a Young Girl' would make for a tres chic nursery.
Anyone who has ever been to my house(or seen my d*s sneak peek) can see that I have a thing for old illustrations. I'm not even sure how it started, but I am always drawn to them and especially love old children's books, as they are chock full of beautiful stuff. Here's my latest find... love the simple pink, grey, black color combo.
Today, my business partner and I (I am co.owner of Poppies & Posies here in NYC) taught a little floral seminar at Fair Folks & A Goat in honor of mother's day. The space is incredible; filled to the brim with gorgeous works of art, beautiful jewelry, furniture, and even a closet full of clothes. There is a little something for everyone. It may seem when you walk in that you have just stepped into someone's seriously chic studio apartment. Not to fear, you're in the right place, and everything is for sale! The shop, open by appointment only, is fittingly located in a beautiful studio apartment on the UES. To make an appointment (and discover the address of its otherwise undisclosed location) contact Fair Folks & A Goat. Also be sure to check out their new b&b venture in New Orleans.
I am crazy for wallpaper... I just love it. One of my favorite 'paper' sources is Walnut Wallpaper. These are just a few of the many designs that I am itching to plaster all over my walls... if only my landlord felt the same way...
