It's A Merry Etsy Holiday!!

We've turned to everyone's favorite purveyor of vintage/indie/handmade/craftastic goodness for some holiday decorating inspiration...  That lovable juggernaut, Etsy!  There's a treasure trove to be found there, you can decorate your whole house from top to bottom, find the perfect holiday card, buy ALL of your gifts, the stockings, the wrapping paper, ornaments and even the tree!!

Let's start with the front door and the Christmas wreath.

We found this beautiful custom handmade wreath at Wild Ridge Design.  The one above is a grapevine wreath featuring pip berries and scented oil.  If you're looking for a fun retro vibe, look no further than Hester, Maude & Nancy. They create heirloom quality Christmas wreaths and decor from antique ornaments.

Next up we have some deer!  What's that you say?  Your mantle is missing that something special?  When in doubt, put a deer on it!  Our favorite is this Ceramic White Deer Vase by Near And Deer.

Or this Vintage Brass Mid-Century Reindeer found at Rust Belt Threads.

These amazing white ceramic mugs come from Barceramics.  The hooves are covered in pure gold!  These amazing cups are 100% handmade in Poland.

We found some very cool Hanukkah pieces this year by Studio Armadillo out of Israel.  The first is a beautiful modern ceramic dreidel, it also doubles as a bud vase making it useful all year round. 

We also went crazy for their gorgeous origami inspired menorahs.

We love a great garland and lucky for us, there is a plethora to be found on Etsy.  This gold star garland is by Hoopsy Daisies in Greece; it's so simple yet perfect for spreading holiday cheer.

This pretty mint and gold garland comes from Transparent Es Decor in Spain.

We found these super fun modern Scandanavian inspired stockings at Beek in Portland, Oregon.

 We're crazy for this set of vintage, yet completely contemporary, snowy mountain landscape wrapping paper by Normans Printery.  


They also make this great Swiss Alps wrapping paper as well.  Love it!!

If you're more of a traditionalist, Normans Printery has a lot to offer you too.  Checkout their Winter Forest Wrap!

There are so many fantastic hand-made and vintage ornaments on Etsy that it was hard to narrow down our selection, but here are some of our favorites.

These exquisite white and gold geometric ornaments are on trend this year.  We found them at Loop Design Studio, located in Israel.

Who can resist the charm of these Mid Century Colorful Glass Christmas Ball Ornaments?  The Vintage Road 2 Retro has an enormous array of vintage goodness just waiting to fill your heart with Christmas nostalgia.

And last but not least, we have the Christmas tree.  Sure, it would be very hard to give up having that Christmasy pine smell that a real tree provides, but these trees are making us think twice.

If you're looking to keep Christmas really simple this year, look no further than Cardboard Christmas in Estonia.  This pared-down tree is made of 100% natural recycled cardboard, it stores flat and can be used again and again, year after year.

This tree makes our hipster hearts very happy! Better yet, it comes to us right from San Francisco from ReTree Joy.  Its clean, open design allows you to see all those great Etsy Christmas ornaments you've just purchased.

Well that about wraps up this epic Etsy post...  We could go on and on (quite literally forever) about the holiday magic going on at Etsy, but you should go see it for yourself! There is still enough time to ship...

P.S.  They even have gift cards

Work It

 

You can start looking forward to Mondays with this new room recipe!  We created a sweet yet energetic and feminine work space for all of you girl bosses out there who want to conquor the world in a stylish office.  Don't let the softness of the mint fool you; mixed with orange, curry and teal, these colors pack a punch.  The natural wood and gold accents are the perfect counterbalance to one another.  

Work it, girl!

Jack & Jill Room Recipes


       

We have two room recipes for you today, both devoted to kids!  First up is our Perfect Navy Room Recipe; we chose this for a boy's bedroom.  The starting point was our Workroom C Fabric in the Perfect Navy colorway.  We love the mix of navy and the warm wood of the dresser with pops of red throughout.  The F/K/A Table Lamp is great; the navy shade mixed with the mint base and red cord is so fresh and playful and it's perfect for a child's room.  The red Radial Wall Shelf is a great place to show off prized toys and small collections.  It's never too early to introduce kids to music and the portable record player throws in a retro vibe.  The Solar System Mobile is just plain cool. 

Next up is our Persimmon Room Recipe, which we chose for a girl's bedroom.

Persimmon and lavender were made for each other; they make a soft and soothing color combination, yet warm and inviting at the same time.  The white feather pendant floats like a dream above the bed.  We played with circular shapes in this room: the pom-poms on the drapery panel trim, the organic polka-dot pattern on our Workroom C Chloé Pillows, the "beads" dangling off of the vintage peacock headboard and they're featured on the gorgeous art dolls.

We're in love… With our new fabric patterns!!

 

We're thrilled to introduce you to our three new Workroom C fabrics!

Please meet Isla, Xoxo and Isla Twine.  These three beauties mix well with all of our prints but are strong enough to stand on their own.  Of course they each come in an array of colors, twenty eight to be exact.  These fabrics are hot off the presses, so hot, that they're not even up on our Workroom C website yet!  Please contact our office for swatches. 

We were so excited to see these patterns in a room, that we created a dining room fit for a romantic dinner for two, just in time for Valentine's Day.  We've used one of our new Workroom C fabrics, Isla Twine, for the drapery panels.  The design on the Isla Twine fabric is a softer, more feminine version of the pattern on the Dash and Albert rug.  We mixed in a few fun Jonathan Adler pieces, the reversible Utopia King and Queen of Hearts Candle Holders and the (cheeky!) Derriere vase.  The pale blue tufted Finland Dining Chairs pair well with the straight masculine lines of the Erik Dining Table.  We didn't forget the flowers, champagne or chocolates...

Or the coveted little blue box!
