Le Shop | Every Object Has A Story
Curation | a thoughtful approach to adding things to one’s home
I adore old things. Objects with a story. Le Shop is my personal, curated collection of vintage European finds. Everything is hand selected. I consider not only the beauty of an object but how it will be used. How does it feel when you hold it? Can I glean something about the maker or previous owner? Thoughtfully crafted items have the ability to elevate the ordinary. They invite us to reflect and appreciate the significance of our everyday tasks. Why can’t something that is useful also be beautiful?
Whether a vintage find or a handmade piece created by moi, every treasure in Le Shop passes through my hands. I love everything I sell. If it doesn’t speak to me as beautiful and functional, it doesn’t find its way into my market basket or into the curated collection. I gravitate toward a soft color palette and simple, quality design. I enjoy rich textures and lots of character. You’ll find vintage linens that become softer with time and use, handmade French copper ware that proudly displays its patina, and the timelessness of mid century design that goes with any decor. I want objects to grow with a person’s style so that for years to come they remain a part of the owner’s story.
Houses become homes once we add ourselves to them. When we organize, edit, and invest in what we love, we create the life we want to unfold within her walls. It’s a very personal process. My clients have an affinity for vintage objects that have a rich narrative. They know the mark of quality, appreciate the creative process, and define luxury often by the pleasure of using simple, beautiful things that make an ordinary day more special. They are passionate about French style and sensibilities which looks for balance between a refined, well-edited space and the sensuousness of texture and warmth of comfort. It is an emphasis on process and presentation without forgetting the importance of simplicity and livability. French style takes into account the character of the piece, the inspiration behind its origins, and an understanding that there is always more to tell than what you first might see.
It is my pleasure to be your connection to French culture and design.
