Etsy Favorites

Etsy continues to be one of our very favorite sources for finding unique treasures and inspiration, and we realized it has been ages since our last roundup of favorite Etsy stores.  Here are three shops we’re loving:

Luola is one of the best curated shops on Etsy.  The focus is on decorative mid-century items and they’re beautifully photographed and described.  She updates her shop regularly, so there’s always some new wonder to discover:

Triple Seven Home has gorgeous and unusual lighting options:

We love Brett Pendlebury’s portraits; we’re both eyeing a couple for our own homes:

So lovely, right?  Any Etsy stores you think we should be checking out?

From Katie:

I had to do a quick search of our site because I can’t quite believe I haven’t shared The Black Apple Etsy store before! I’m a huge fan of Emily Winfield Martin, and really love to explore the strange, magical worlds she creates.

I don’t know why exactly, but I am powerless in the face of a face vase.  With her modern faces on objects that otherwise bear no resemblance to the human countenance, I almost get the feeling that Elizabeth Graeber is poking fun at the impulse, which makes me love her work all the more.

I have to confess that the resurgence of macrame and other wall-hanging fiber arts hasn’t really captivated me.  That said, I am a big fan the tidy and textured work of Lisa Garcia of Sonadora.  It’s like wall jewelry, and I love it.

From Katie:

The colors of these ceramics made by Redraven studios are so perfect.  Not sure I’m refined enough to eat from dinnerware decorated with real gold, but I’d certainly like to give it a go.

From Mera:

I love Lucile Prache’s food watercolors–they remind me of my mother-in-law’s paintings, and also of my grandmother’s kitchen:

Despite its firm hold on the interior design world, I am still a wallpaper weeny.  It’s just so permanent, bold and expensive!  Kate Zaremba’s removable wallpapers put my commitment-phobe fears to rest, and I love her hand-drawn designs:
