Ravishingly Disheveled Interiors

These ravishingly disheveled homes and natural interiors photographed by Debi Treloar are taking my breath away.  Blomquist_1485_016 Bowen_2-38490 Clyro_r1393-009-copy Clyro_r1393-040-copy Derriere_r1392-30702 Dimanache_1485_003 Gustav-52485 Inamat_r1393-41198 Jacqes_1484-49355 MaisonPopuli_-55175-1600x2162 Meij-Beekman_1484-52907 Meij-Beekman_1484-52998 Ryan_1484-49140 Shore_r1392-36014 Shore_r1392-36019 Shore_r1392-36024 Shore_r1392-36037 Shore_r1392-36041 Shore_r1392-36096 Tolstrup_r1392-35923 Tolstrup_r1392-35946 Willing_1484-53081


Wander Lust {and cool reclaimed children’s clothes}

I remember my first trip to Southeast Asia when I feverishly scooped up every wonderfully exotic tapestry that caught my eye in the endless open-air markets. I stuffed my suitcase full of pillow covers, skirts and dresses that brought me fleeting moments of joy and have since found a home in other’s hands. Elise Vaughn sells her wares under the label, the Brass Razoo, defined as “a non-existent coin of trivial value.” Her goods remind me of the cool, vibrant, hippie mash-up of textures and patterns that one would find in a far-away land. She makes jewelry, leather goods and children’s clothing using reclaimed materials, pieces that otherwise would have been disregarded. She tells us, “each piece is to be a reminder that we all possess potential, value, worth, beauty, and are perfectly unique.” Shop her children’s collection here.

Stone Fox Bride

Weddings aren’t all frill and cheesy glitz. Stone Fox Bride is a vintage-inspired and custom-designed wedding gown company in NYC and Molly Guy is the girl behind it all. She is a fellow cultural omnivore of all things (books, movies, fashion, politics, etc.), yogi, mom to a little girl Sunny Starling Shalom Rosen Guy, magazine writer and lover of untraditional, super personal weddings. Here, Tales of Endearment goes into her space in Park Slope Brooklyn and checks out the serenly bohemian wedding shop.

Hollister and Porter Hovey

This wallpaper is everything I want in a wallpaper (if there were such a desire). Brooklynite sisters Hollister and Porter Hovey of Hovey Design created it exclusively for Anthropologie. Its their curated collection of quirky objects (taxidermy, riding boots, booze in crystal and a bunch of their art). Perfect for aficionados of the new vintage.

Nomadic, Spirited and Free

I’m not one to make sweeping generalizations but gawd Australian’s are just plain cool. They’re born cool and breezy. Heidi is the Creative Director and Head Designer at Sass & Bide and she lives with her lovely family in a 1940s villa along a bay just north of Sydney. She adores vintage.“It is what first fueled my love of fashion. I am at my happiest when I am clashing favorite vintage pieces with ‘fallen in love with’ new purchases. It is also what inspires me daily in the design room.” Her style in a few words: intuitive, nomadic, contradicted, spirited, modern and free.
