Secondhand Rose

So, I have been obsessing over wallpaper (especially flocked!) for a couple of years now. I'm so glad that there is a swing back to wallpaper popularity, with such amazing new designs out. But, as with many things, sometimes the original is still the best and Secondhand Rose in New York has a huuuuge collection of vintage wallpaper. A drool worthy collection, let me assure you- including the beautiful designs above. I saw the store featured on Martha Stewart years ago and have been dreaming about it ever since, and I happy to report they have a wonderful website, Definitely a site worth checking out.

Paris When It Sizzles

So e and I recently watched Paris When it Sizzles with Audrey Hepburn and William Holden, and I have to say that it is the most beautiful, decoratively(is that a word?) inspiring movie. It's hard to even explain the amazing images and styling that went into this movie (and it is even harder to find pictures of it), but if you are looking for interior design inspiration--go watch this movie. William Holden's apartment is amazing. It's kind of this dove grey, with splashes of black and gold and an incredible circular staircase in the middle of the room. Very Parisian, Very 1960's--how much better can you get? Anyway, we decided that we will be buying this movie, just so we can see the rooms, however it's been on TMC a lot lately so you can probably catch it there or rent it somewhere (netflix?).

It is now officially Spring, and although it is grey and gloomy outside, we are in a springy state of excitement here at the store. Why? well, (drumroll please) the Spring shoes have started to arrive! Now to some of you, that might not be to exciting, but to you shoe lovers out there, these shoes are like delicious pieces of candy! (pictures will be posted soon!)
Anyway, this being my very first blog ever, I shall keep it short and sweet. Keep an eye on us though, we will be posting on store going's on, new product, new designs and anything else that might catch our fancy!
