Inspiration

Shelves in front of Windows

We have this great little duplex that we remodeled on the exterior but the kitchens in these little apartments need an overhaul because the wall space is limited and I’ve thought that layering a couple of shelves over the window would be a fun element in a small but modern apartment kitchen. This concept has been around for a minute and its picking up a little steam here lately.


 

 

 

 

 

 

What’s your official position on shelves over windows?

Dining Chair Round Up

By Posted on 0

Since I’ve painted my dining room Swiss Coffee (a warm but modern white) and I’ve earmarked a a rattan fixture soon to arrive at ShopTEOT, it’s time to think chairs.

We’re going to keep the table that was given to us a while ago. The reason being- there is something appealing about the simple turned legs and it’s just the right size for our life and space but the finish is not ideal. I’ve kicked around the idea of sanding it and clear coating it or maybe learning about the waxing process that leaves oak with an open grain (not sure if that’s ok for eating on).

What we can establish now is that the shape and style of the table will remain and I need to think chairs.

Kataphora POPUP at The Estate of Things

By Posted on 0

Kataphora Comes Downtown

April 28th – May 5th

We are big fans of Jordan and her boutique, Kataphora. We wanted to bring her goods downtown and give you a chance to shop Summer fashions in our shop! A POP UP!

If you don’t already follow @KataphoraBoutique on Instagram, get on that now for fresh ideas and a look at the latest that she’s bringing in. We are ardent fans of a great pair of jeans and you can find them there. Sarah follows their feed to see when new Bella Dahl pieces show up, the easy breezy of this line and the soft linen cotton fabrics reel her in every time. She also high-tailed it down when these pieces showed, before they were scarfed up.

 

All the ladies come running for Cupcakes and Cashmere, C&C takes cues from the 90s with their take on the baby doll florals and 70s bohemia.

 

 

 

The details!

Great Design Books

By Posted on 0

Sarah and I have a collection of design books at the store that we love to flip through in quiet moments.

One can really be a student of many of the designers whose books we’ve selected below. As they say, it’s good to know the rules, so you can know how to break them. So, we’ve offered up a mix of some very serious, high brow options, alongside some of our self-taught contemporaries whose voice has been found among the likes of Instagram and Blogger.com.

Either way, you are sure to pick up some tricks from the trade that you can incorporate into your own efforts at home. I’m a huge fan of the democratization of design. I love that we all have the opportunity to express ourselves and our lifestyles through our living spaces, and I especially love it when its executed with a bit of thought!
