One of life’s interesting dichotomies…90 degrees and sunny, and yet I am house-bound with a nasty cold. Woe is me. Alas, it gives me proper time to get my ducks in a row for my official, full-time launch of Element Interiors and make, hopefully, a few interesting posts.
First off, in case you live in Boston and find yourself in one of my favorite neighborhoods for design inspiration,the South End, stop in Hudson on Shawmut Avenue. If I were to own a bouique, this would be pretty much it! I kind of wish I could just move into this store. They carry otherwise hard to find locally lines such as Bungalow 5 (a personal favorite), Oly (amazing), Barbara Cosgrove lighting, their own line of natty throw pillows and even Cowgirl Chocolates for those with an undeniable sweet tooth AND a vintage design sensibility.
Another fab find is House Eclectic, a source for fresh, cutting edge tables and seating. Pieces come in a variety of candy colored finishes, perfect for adding that little “pop” of color to an otherwise drab and common room. One of my favorites, above, is simple enough to blend with just about any decor, but has a touch of contemporary mod style.
