in your space: kaelen haworth

Totally inspired by clothing designer Kaelen Haworth’s ridiculous East Village apartment.

In fact, the over-dyed yellow rug in the bedroom actually encouraged the recent purchase of a bright yellow rug from Elte for our kitchen ; )

Next on the list, dream catchers for our bedroom, which I am constantly searching Etsy for but haven’t found the perfect ones yet…

TGIF !!

inspired by: pip & estella

Scrolling through my emails this morning, I came across one from Daily Candy which led me to Pip & Estella

The site is founded by LA-native Sana studied Interior Design at Parsons, The New School in New York City.

“The inspiration for the Pip & Estella boutique comes from a literary classic: the old and worn, yet intriguing and magnetic aesthetic of the Satis House mansion, as described in the Dickens novel, Great Expectations.  In my mind, the aging Satis was a sunlight-filtered world made more lovely by the accumulation of time.

While we do sell decor a la carte, dozens of Pip and Estella “houses” (or curated lot of goods, each with their own identity) have found owners in the U.S. and abroad. I’m happy to say that Pip & Estella is the original place to ‘Buy The House’

At Pip & Estella we travel, scouring markets, shops and estates to bring you unique vintage and antique wares for the home. We’ll create an assortment for you or let you curate your own. One suggestion if we may: decorate boldly.”

The images come from her site here; 1, 2, 3, & 4

Now, it’s time for some yoga… remember Friday’s inspiration ; )
