a lovely being + etsy



Sometimes, I go a little overboard when I go antiqueing. And by a little, I mean a lot. I'd like to blame it on Kansas City for being such a thrifting goldmine, but the truth is that I've been doing this for years! My little studio apartment is practically bursting at the seams with vintage goods and so I've decided to start an Etsy shop to pass these treasures onto you. Above are a few choice offerings from a lovely being boutique. Each item listed on the site was hand-selected simply because I was drawn to it. I had a lot of fun with styling and setting up the store front, and I can only hope that you take a peek. I'll be adding more pieces (lord knows my apartment needs it) in the next few weeks. If you'd like, drop a line - I'd love to hear what you think! 

above: vintage dalmation figurine, yellow and cream striped vintage vase, vintage needlepoint accent pillow, pair of heavy brass vintage pelican bookends, vintage basketweave ceramic pitcher, painted malachite and brass jewelry box

in the studio with leanne shapton

Leanne Shapton is the kind of woman who does it all. Formerly the art director of the NYT Op-Ed page, she now writes and illustrates books, runs a nonprofit press with a friend (which she founded, of course), creates and sells her own incredible art, and generally kicks ass in the game of life. I fell in love with her Manhattan studio a few years back when it was featured in The Paris Review. She's nailed the eclectic look while staying completely true to herself... it seems as if everything in her space has a story. I've looked at these images too many times to count. I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

at work with sofia coppola 

I have no idea how I stumbed across these photos on Le Monde, but I'm glad I did. I've never seen Sofia's New York office before and I'm feeling quite inspired. I'd like to think that you could bring this space ten years forward or backward, and it'd still make sense. Don't you agree? In my opinion, this is largely due to the personal objects and trinkets scattered about. Sofia didn't buy her books in one go on amazing nor did she purchase all pieces of art one sleepless night on Etsy. In the accompanying interview, she notes that she actually snapped many of the photos herself. They look quite lovely and professonal simply because they are beautifully framed. You, too, can do this! And you don't need an expensive camera to follow suit :) 

Also: I'm beginning to think that a watermelon-colored desk is the secret to greatness. For all you die-hard Jenna Lyons fans, you know what I mean. I was already planning to repaint my black desk a pure white once the weather warmed up, but now I'm rethinking everything.   

Put your high school French skills to use and read the article here. Bonne journée!

chez adam charlap hyman

Simply put, Adam Charlap Hyman's brooklyn flat knocked me off my feet. The fairly recent graduate of RISD currently works as a furniture, textile and interior designer and his apartment shows it. Adam installed the apartment's molding and wooden fireplace (which he painted to look like marble), and even made the iron "Cocteau" chair we see in photo four. I love his use of color and texture and have spent quite a bit of time analyzing the content in these photos. I'm incredibly inspired and impressed! If you have a moment, you've got to see rest of his space here and here. ACH, you're my new hero.

rita konig on framing 

One of my resolutions for 2014 is to buy more art. In my opinion, a space without art is incredibly boring (and sadly, I don't have much of it!). Good art needn't be expensive, but I do believe that it needs to be properly framed. Readers in this school of thought will enjoy Rita Konig's short film for her new NYT video series, Macau trực tuyến BaccaratThe Decoration of Houses. Here, Rita introduces us to London's Lacy Gallery where (I assume) she does most of her framing. I love that she mixes different woods, metals and styles of frames on the walls of her London flat. It adds variety and excitement. Very magpie chic. Also, how awesome are those brass frames on her wall?! I've been trying to track down a vintage rendition on Etsy, but no luck yet. Perhaps it's one of those things that must be custom. Any ideas?
