This shop is tugging at my heartstrings, because their rugs are just too quirky and cute. RugbyGur features handmade rugs designed by a variety of artists and using traditional materials and techniques from Portugal.

PickedHome is basically a stylist’s dream. It’s filled with vintage accessories of all shapes and sizes, perfect for filling up that bookcase, styling a mantel or stocking those open shelves in the kitchen.

 

PhotonicStudio

PhotonicStudio is a handmade industrial and modern lighting shop based in LA. You’ll find original designs and reproductions at great prices! If you’re feeling crafty, some lights come in an easy to assemble DIY kit.

 

Antevasins

For all things Moroccan, head to Antevasins. The shop is a treasure trove of pom pom blankets, copper trays, Beni Ourain rugs, and vintage poufs. Based in Los Angeles, imported from Morocco.

The Apartment Opens Sister Shop in Los Angeles

The Apartment Opens Shop in Los Angeles • on @SavvyHome

You may already know that I’m a long term fan of The Apartment by The Line (as evidenced here and here). So naturally, when I found out that they were opening a LA outpost in West Hollywood, I needed to find out more.

It turns out the Melrose Place shop has a decidedly more relaxed Californian flair, than its sister shop in SoHo on the East Coast. “The site of The Apartment reflects the city’s expansive inclinations”. It’s open, warm and airy.

From coffee table books to luxury bath products, you can buy every single item in this ultra curated space. The Apartment merges one-of-a-kind pieces: vintage Jean Royère sconces and unique artwork, with ready-to-buy items like scented room diffusers and the latest collections from various fashion houses. The result is an organic space in which one could imagine oneself living… A curated representation of real life well-lived, if you will.

If the NYC counterpart is any indication, The Apartment will probably become the most photographed décor store on the West Coast. Here’s a glimpse of what it looked like on opening day! Tour the Los Angeles Apartment here.

My 6 Favorite Etsy Shops Right Now

Katy Skelton • 6 Best Etsy Shops Right Now: July 2015 on @SavvyHome

 

After stumbling upon ParkStudioLA, I rediscovered Etsy and fell down a rabbit hole of endless treasure troves. Here is the low-down of the best Etsy shops I discovered recently.

 

 

KatySkelton

I discovered Katy Skelton at High Point Market last October and fell in love with her mid-century marble and brass sensibilities. Based out of Brooklyn, Katy creates beautiful products designed with social responsibility in mind. I love her Admiral’s Tray, and her collection of brass hairpin side tables makes me weak in the knees.

 

ParkStudioLA

I can’t remember how I stumbled upon ParkStudioLA‘s Etsy shop, but I remember obsessively searching for the chandelier that graced the ceilings of the Marlton Hotel‘s lobby and restaurant Margaux, after having dinner there a couple of months ago. I was in love with the stark contrast between the minimal modern chandelier against the over-ornate ceilings. Then I found it: the Cotati Chandelier in all its glory.

 

PinkRugCo

Pink Rug Co. specializes in hand-selected vintage Moroccan rugs. From the understated traditional black and white Beni Ourain rugs to the uber-colorful Boucherouite rugs (they’re like an acid trip on your floors—and I mean that in the best possible way), their Moroccan rugs collection is truly second to none.

 

CroftHouseLA

A few years ago, LA-based Croft House founder Riley Rea refurbished an old desk he found on Craigslist for his workspace. It didn’t fit quite right, so he sold the desk on Craigslist for 5x the price. He followed the same method a few more times and when demand grew, he started replicating vintage furniture with reclaimed local wood. Croft House now specializes in modern reclaimed wood furniture and has even expanded to upholstery.

 

506070

506070 is a London-based shop that specializes in (you guessed it) 50s, 60s and 70s hand-selected vintage furniture and decorative items. With a keen eye for design and a specialty in mid-century Scandinavian products, owner Franck London has curated a selection of pieces that is second to none on Etsy; from coveted Arne Norell safari chairs to Borge Mogensen cabinets. And fear not the UK address, 506070 ships worldwide.

 

BohoPillow

I’ve you’ve seen my One Room Challenge reveal, you might have noticed that I essentially have the same indigo batik pillows as the one featured above, which makes BohoPillow an obvious choice. Their specialty: to turn vintage global and ethnic textiles into pillows. Here you’ll find Hmong, Batik, Indigo, Mudcloth and wedding blanket textiles from China, Guatemala, Morocco and more.

Stop the Presses, Anthropologie Launches Lemlem Home Collection

Lemlem Home Collection Anthropologie 2015 • on @SavvyHome

 

Just in time for summer, Anthropologie launches a 15-piece lemlem home collection in the brand’s trademark neon stripes.

 

Browse Savvy Home for a minute, and you’ll immediately see my affinity with lemlem clothing. I’ve featured their gauzy striped pieces incessantly for years. I first discovered lemlem at the Surf Lodge‘s Surf Bazaar in Montauk a few years ago. Their easy-going beachy aesthetic immediately caught my eye and I have been a convert ever since.

The brand’s motto “13 months of sunshine” comes from the founder’s place of birth, Ethiopia. Model and activist Liya Kebede’s determination to create a sustainable and empowering partnership with local artisans in her place of birth resulted in the brand all we love today; one that consistently delivers beachy and summer-appropriate attire to wear at the beach year after year. Until today that is.

Today might as well be Christmas morning for lemlem fans and I, because Anthropologie has just released lemlem’s first home collection. The 15-piece lemlem home collection launched today and features pillows, bedding, bath and tables linens in the brands trademark neon stripes. Cue angels singing. Here are just a few of the items I’m dying to get my hands on.
