Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
The Writer
When you imagine some of our grandest writers, what kind of desk or table would you pair them with? A writing desk is personal, you can add your own style with unique vintage accessories that inspire. Thoughts become profound, clearly expressing them from such a personal place is a lot more interesting and fun.

Shop Second Shout Out's Antique and Vintage Desks.


This desk is in Charles Dickens’ London study. It is where he did most of his writing. It can be seen in the writer’s home/museum.

My design tip: A writing desk is for creating; a home office desk is for paying the bills and keeping files.

Have a beautiful last weekend, farewell to March.

Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson

The Coveted Collection
Where do the things we collect end up?  It’s pretty rare we find a heart shaped rock on a hike, or a perfect sand dollar washed in from the sea.  Those are moments we covet. Do you set them on the mantle until it’s cleaning day, then lay them in a drawer never to be seen again until you move? Here’s some cool display ideas I curated that might inspire you to keep collecting and cherish those precious finds.

My design tip: Collections can be mixing two things together, for example the vintage wood shelves with items from the sea.

Enjoy a beautiful weekend,
 xo,

Organic Hemp Hand Screened Pillows, Green

These designs were inspired through travels to Italy exploring architectural salvage yards where you find the most amazing hand-painted reclaimed Italian  antique tiles. If you have ever visited one of these places in Italy, then we share this vivid picture in our mind.  There are racks and racks of these beautiful tiles and it is quite a visual treat. These pillows are  unique and artistic.  We wanted the designs and colors to be authentic , just like the tiles.  They are antique in design and we really feel they  would look equally great in a traditional, rustic  or modern home.

24 X 24 inches feather down fill - Organic hemp cotton canvas.  The fabric is dampened or dyed, then when it dries and shrinks up a bit creating  a soft, sophisticated bohemian appeal.

The pillows are screen printed and every single pillow is hand screened.  This is what gives each pillows its own characteristics and personality,  No two pillows are exactly alike, different pressure from how the paint was pulled through the screens makes each pillow unique.
