There is never have too much pattern at once, or too much mix of new and old. It would be really boring otherwise. Vintage and handmade pieces make the best friends. They’ve all known other people and things before me, so there’s always a lot to talk about.
The rug is a beautiful, new-to-us piece; it’s a 100-year-old Caucasian rug purchased from the rug guy at the Brooklyn Flea. It feels like it holds so many stories, through its worn spots and warped edges. I wonder who’s houses it’s been in, what it’s heard and knows, and if it will tell someone about us some day.
The clutch is by Falconwright, an amazing line of handmade, screen printed leather goods by Sandy Falconer and Danielle Wright. You may have caught my illustrated post over on my personal blog last week, gushing about how much I love it. The leather is super soft, construction is impeccable, and each piece is made in one-of-a-kind prints and colorways. Definitely check out their online shop – there are so many options it will boggle your mind in the best way.
