A blogger without reliable internet is… well, pretty hosed. Now it seems that bothersome situation has ebbed, and I’m up and running again. So it’s about time I share out some of the amazing eye candy I absorbed a few weeks ago at the Maison et Objet trade fair in Paris. Today, some of the notable colors stories.
Spent a day perusing the local retail scene last week; visiting a mix of vintage shops as well as several in the North Loop, LynLake, Powderhorn and Longfellow neighborhoods. Compiled a few pics of my favs!
Shops pictured above:
- FindFurnish (NE Minneapolis)
- Martin Patrick (North Loop)
- Shinola (North Loop)
- Filson (North Loop)

Had a chance to visit ABC Carpet & Home while I was in New York late last month, and snapped a few pics to share. They continue to astound me with their amazing eye for visual merchandising, ability to transport me into a decadent fantasy land, and curate a stunningly eclectic assortment that somehow all works together. Oh, and that pink!
All this snow. And gray skies. It can bring on a smidge of the doldrums. So, I’m tapping into my promenade through last May’s ICFF (the International Contemporary Furniture Fair) to find some relief. It comes in the form of totally irreverent, highly colorful, tres-patterned chairs and sofas by Fama Living from Yecla, Murcia, Spain. Ah, yes… that hits the spot.
