Shop Opening

August 6, 2014

Shop OpeningHave you ever had a moment in your life when you realize you just need to go for it?  At the risk of sounding like an Eminem song, I have come to terms with starting something I have always wanted to do, but always seemed too daunting.  But now I am doing it!

So without further ado: (drumroll please) I have opened up an Etsy shop to sell vintage home decor & furnishings as well as hand made and repurposed items for the home by mwah in the future.

Vintage Typewriter Table

{Vintage 1950’s Typewriter Table – $70} {Copper Flower Bowl – $12} {Frida Kahlo Tequila Shot Glass Holder – $17}

This is going to be done in baby steps, and my true dream is to have vintage and repurposed items for the home that I can have in stock for design clients.  Perhaps a warehouse full!  Ok, I thinking big here, otherwise what is the point, eh?  You know, a whole “I Brake for Yard Sales” kind of moment!   Mixing vintage with modern has become a part of life for me and I want to incorporate that into my day to day business model.

Pineapple Bowl

{Carved Pineapple Bowl – $10}

For right now, this part of Janeane Pittman Interior Design is me and my husband scouring Orange County flea markets, estate sales, garage sales, and thrift stores to curate treasures that fit the modern vintage vibe with a hand crafted feel.

Bamboo Handle Fruit Knives

{German Bamboo Handle Fruit Knives – Set of 8 – $10}

So, please check out the beginnings of what we have found so far and be sure to favorite the Janeane Pittman Design shop to get updates.  I will be posting about new listings along the way too.  You will notice that I have an affinity for wood, bamboo, rattan, mid century modern, whimsical, and bohemian.  So far, I can tell you that everything I have acquired for the shop is something I would put in my own home and it will be a heart breaking moment over and over again when they sell.  I know they will be going to good homes, so I am sure the adoption process will not be as hard as I am making it. (smile!)

Over the past few weeks I have been posting specific design styles in my Style Guide series.  There are truly so many that I could keep going for months.  Have you seen one you like?  Does one fit your lifestyle and taste?  Sometimes it is a mix of styles that really makes us happy.  The relationship between designer and client is a personal one, finding that unique personal style that will fit you and your family.

I recently read an online article posted by a major design magazine telling about a celebrity that acquired the assistance from a designer to help her design her rental home incorporating existing furnishings that were not in the style direction she really wanted as they were from a past home.  The client raved about how her designer was able to capture her style and do it within her budget.  While I obviously was not involved in the conversations between designer and client, but it sure sounds like she hit the nail on the head.

So what makes you happy in your home?  Whatever it is, it a clue into what your personal style is.

Bohemian Style

Bohemian style is such a relaxed way of living.  This weeks Style Guide brings you this eclectic decor sometimes referred to as Boho.  I had a lot of fun pulling this set together mostly due to all the color.  Bright colors and florals are shown so well on this pouf and carved piece of wall art.  Although this wicker sofa has a deco feel, it brings in a funky vibe.  A shell chandelier and “Indian-esc” arrow lamp bring groovy lighting.  Bringing in the bright birds should be of no surprise if you have been a long time reader as I am slightly obsessed.
