Some of my Fave Etsy Shops!

Etsy asked me to partner with them to share some of my favorite home decor shops on their site and of course I jumped at the chance because it is one of the BEST resources out there for unique, custom and vintage decor currently available to everyone and anyone!  We use it a lot as designers, especially on e-design projects, when we can’t use our normal local vendors.

So here are some of my favorite and often used shops:

Spark Modern

Amazing selection of pillows made of to-the-trade fabrics from vendors like Peter Dunham, Schumacher and the like.

Color Riot with OKL

As you know from my blogging here I have hard time committing to color in a big way- and I see it all the time with clients too.  It’s scary to invest in a bold color sofa, chair or even wall color- but it IS easy to add it via pillows, rugs and other accents.  And color doesn’t have to be COLOR!!!!!  A subtle use of a couple colors or the use of one strong color in a repetitive way can really make a mark.

So in partnering with One Kings Lane, we decided it was time to add a bit of color back into our office since painting over the bold coral walls with white.  And since I’m obsessed with blue, we decided on blue with a hint of coral-pink (a great combo!)  We found so many great items to make a real pop!

Fashion Friday: J.McLaughlin Fall and a $500 Giveaway!

When we went up to Ipswich for the weekend last week we brought along with us a few favorites from the J. McLaughlin fall collection. I saw this plaid poncho (the hottest silhouette for fall for sure)  in their preview booklet they sent to me months ago, and wanted it something fierce! It’s the perfect fall topper for anyone, but especially for pregnancy! It kept me warm and cozy and most importantly, comfortable.

Sponsor Welcome: White Fences Inn (& Giveaway!)

I’m happy to welcome our new sponsor, White Fences Inn in Water Mill, NY to the EOS family today! Actually, welcome them back in a way, since the former owners of a Kennebunkport inn who were a longtime sponsor are the new owners of this Hamptons property!  They bought this old home and renovated and added an new addition and just opened in late summer- take a peek and then enter the giveaway at the end of the post!

I’m so excited to welcome Lafco New York to the EOS family!  I have been buying their candles for years as gifts and for myself, and now they are an official EOS supporter- pretty cool.  And to welcome them to our little crew, I’m sharing their new collection launching today called Present Perfect.  Beautiful packaging, great scents and a variety of products (I’m partial to the candles and hand soap!)  The scents are hand blended in France and Italy from pure essential oils and many ingredients are locally sources- the candles, for instance, are made from wax made and hand-poured in New England.
