I was super lucky to be invited last night to a hear Designers Don Carney and John Ross share their inspiration and present a preview of their new Patch NYC line debuting at Target on September 9th. As a long time fan of kitschy woodland creatures, these pieces were right up my alley. I’ll be ready to line up at my local Tar-jay for a gorgeous feather serving plate and teapot and few quirky little owl candle holders. Check out more previews here.
I wanted to share a recap of the great event I attended last week at the Boston West Elm. The event, hosted at West Elm with Patch NYC and several local Etsy designers was a total success, I had so much fun with girlfriends sipping on cocktails, indulging in h’ors d’oeuvres, and going on a mini shopping spree. It was quite a festive occasion — I loved the wooden faux-chandeliers decorating the store:
One of my favorite Etsy vendors was Earmark Invitations, in addition to their gorgeous stationery they colorful pencils with funny sayings on them like “Stay Classy” and “I’m kind of a big deal” — I snagged a set of them for myself and got a few for Christmas presents too!
Another vendor with adorable creations was eclu, their flower pins were artfully displayed on a dress form — I can’t resist the color-coding!
Plus I checked out some of the West Elm products — they have amazing seasonal displays, lots of yellow and gray, and dashes of chevron here and there:
