I've often fantasized about owning a vacation home if only just to decorate it. Never mind all the hassles and expense involved or that our year-round home isn't exactly "decorated" either! For now we are serial renters of large generic homes that suit the needs of our group. On one afternoon of our recent stay in Duck, North Carolina, the womenfolk took a jaunt over to the shops of the little town.
Mixed in with souvenir and beachwear shops, we found Urban Cottage, a home furnishings store run by Amy Chrisler.
I'm always a sucker for appealing decor shops.
The cooling colors of sea glass evoke the beach without screaming.
I used to be a clothing designer in New York City, then I chucked it all to start a family. I stay busy as an independent designer of kids’ clothing and textiles for various companies, and for my own label “chirp & bloom”. This is my personal blog, where I keep my notes on all things vintage, green, handmade, indie, kid-friendly, and whatever else inspires me to keep evolving. Just for fun, I feature artisans I discover at indie craft shows and share sewing and other DIY projects through tutorials. Thanks for visiting!
