get the vibe: an artist's home in italy / sfgirlbybay

this is the effortless cool, eclectic home of italian artist Antonino Sciortino. an artist whose medium is welded metal objects, antonio shares the light-filled atruim — a former factory in the outskirts of Milan — with his architect partner. Part studio for his work, part living space, it’s the perfect location for showcasing his metal works of art — like the beautiful iron staircase and furniture he built himself. i thought it might be fun to try and get the vibe.

homestead seattle online vintage shop / sfgirlbybay

i literally tumbled into this site — it’s homestead seattle’s gorgeous tumblr page. homestead seattle is a vintage homewares store run by Michele and Ryan Tansey, obviously in seattle, washington, and available to view by appointment. but if you’re not in the Seattle area, all of their goods are available for purchase directly from the homestead seattle website, as well. Or, you can order over the phone, if you feel like giving them a ring instead. they also buy your used furniture, and their wares are available to rent for photo shoot props and events.

i gather their inspiring tumblr page is a clever way to share what’s new in the shop, and as a bonus, the captions are quite witty as well. i’ll definitely be checking out this vintage shop next time i’m up north, and the meantime i’m following on tumblr. they’ve got a great collection, styled to perfection.

one very fine site: de dujes.

a visit to de dujes / sfgirlbybay

via good old pinterest i stumbled onto this truly beautiful blog this weekend. have you ever visited de dujes? well, you should. it’s run by sisters, Gaétane and Gaëlle Dujardin who say “We grew up in a warm and very close family. As a family we often call ourselves ‘The Dujes’. We are there for each other through thick and thin.” I like them already. raised at the seaside, eventually they landed in antwerp, belgium — one of my favorite cities. Gaétane, a.k.a Tanne, studied interior architecture — She has a great interest in all that is beautiful and trendy. Gaëlle, a.k.a. Gai, studied law, but Her interest in interior has always been there, but was fully ignited when she and her boyfriend decided to buy a house and fully renovate it. antwerp is one of the most creative cities and the sisters share wonderful homes tours which are often photographed beautifully by Tanne’s husband Bart De Wit. these images were taken by Kimberley Dhollander and Philippe Corthout, the owners of this lovely home. this is just one home tour, but you should go get inspired by their site, de dujes for much more — they also offer their services as interior stylists. i’d hire them in a heartbeat!

the glass menagerie.

paula sweet home.

i simply love the look of this room above and i adore a great storage piece with glass doors. so much more interesting to put our beloved collectibles on display, rather than hidden away from sight in a cabinet with dull wood doors. i went hunting for some glass cabinets, and i found both affordable options and more high-end cabinets, but a pretty good range to choose from. pretty perfect for offices, dining areas, media storage, and bathrooms, too. i’m considering two IKEA FABRIKÖR side-by-side for my office.
