Venturing into new Territory




It's been an exceptionally busy design time for Vintageweave Interiors so needless to say little time has been available to blog and chat with you all!
Boo hoo I've missed that, BUT the design jobs have been enormously fun and oddly full of hired shopping excursions (their companion for a day of shopping) for off-the-shelf beauties, something which is a bit new for me to do with such frequency......
..........one such job has included running around town and beyond at landscape businesses and rug warehouses with a charming Hollywood Producer to secure the right this and the right that.....another has included a baby's room to be filled with immediately-available (albeit somewhat cookie cutter but darling all the same) furniture....and another still to search out the perfect piano and kitchen appliances for an up and coming starlett...

....Of course, all with a design eye geared towards the well-loved chic'ness of Paris Yesteryear....

With the vast changes in our world, many people are opting to travel less and focus more on their homes, which has translated to hopping to it at all hours, often 7 days a week. The Capricorn girl that I am means I love it something crazy!!!

Hope to be sharing lots of new things soon as the container from our last trip will be here in a couple of weeks. Hope everyone is well and enjoying life with a zest!

Hey Girl,

I love that rag tag leather chair! I bet you are going to do something dramatic to it? It is definately "tres chic". How about those boxes? Will be glad to have you back to chat with.

P.S. I'll e-mail you tomorrow.

That settee is gorgeous. It will look amazing when it's all redone.

How fun to travel to Europe for the ultimate "junking" trip. I hope to do that someday.

Love that settee!
I'm a capricorn too, right there with you. If we aren't on overload we will create it, but we wouldn't have it any other way would we?
Have a beautiful day!!

I love your online store, I am so happy I found your blog.

I was in LA recently and wanted to visit the shop, but ran out of time. Hope to be able to visit in May.

Ciao

Hello,
Oh, I LOVE that tattered leather chair. SO divine, I would have it in my house as is, wouldn't change a thing!

I have a little vintage shop in Australia.

I must say your shop is an inspiration and your blog is fantastic.

Your business tips are great. In certain situations I often think "What would Kathy do?"

I'm just starting to learn that this type of business becomes a way of life. You live and breathe it everyday, the search never ends, It's insatiable.

Happy to have found you.

Love from the land down under!

Gorgeous chair. I'm drooling......
I love seeing great bones in disrepair and letting the imagination run wild. Glad to hear you are doing well and having fun at the same time!
