lucy augé's Pink Hydrangea Exhibition Poster via etsy. / sfgirlbybay

sometimes i just space and forget how a plethora of wonderful handmade items can be found right at our fingertips — quite literally. etsy is just a click away from some of the loveliest online resources for handcrafted goods of all kinds — from stationery, ceramics and art prints like lucy augé’s Pink Hydrangea Exhibition Poster (above), to handmade lampshades. i went and checked out some of my favorite shops and then scoured Etsy for some new ones and found a dozen favorite shops among them. enjoy, and perhaps go on an Etsy hunt of your own!

what instantly caught my eye about this very instagram worthy account was the beautiful color palette @eloeil is able to capture in the what could be a perhaps mundane subject — like these countryside crates just above. @eloeil is a ceramist whose instagram feed offers up beautiful glimpses into her studio, her lovely ceramic creations and the unique view she has of her world. the name ELOEIL is made up of letters from a danish expression “et lille oejeblik”, a short moment, a glimpse of the eye — an ideal name for her. for more inspiration from @eloeil visit her website and you can shop her pretty ceramic pieces in her online shop.

The Modern Bohemian.
by Chelsea Jackson comment

Hello, hello! My name is Chelsea (nice to e-meet you!) and I’m so excited to be joining the sfgirlbybay team as a regular guest contributor. This is a site I’ve loved for years and I’m beside myself at the opportunity to share a little of what I love here. A few quick facts about me: I’ve blogged at Hazel + Scout for almost 8 years (!), I live on a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, I have a six-year-old daughter who is recently obsessed with David Bowie and I’m never without a good playlist. I can’t wait to dive in and explore all things SF Girl with you!

xx, chelsea

As is often the case, design changes and grows with the ebb and flow of the time. When I think back to the rise of bohemian or ~boho~ (cringe) spaces, I pretty instantly conjure up visions of fussy interiors, littered with superfluous greenery. You know, spaces that look like a lot of work went into making them appear “undone”.

Something about bohemian style shifted in a big way over the last couple of years and what we’re left with, in this new wave of bohemian style, are spaces evocative of easy living, real life and possessions collected over time. A real resurgence of simplicity with a focus on form, functionality, and personality has ushered in the new guard of bohemian spaces. Wall hangings are still big (and I’m still obsessed with them!), things are still sun-soaked and colors remain neutral but a lot has changed.
