5 Fab Friday Finds

Oh hello! It’s been a looong time¬†since my last Friday finds post. Womp! Womp! Not doing too well with this consistency thing. I’m trying! The past few weeks have been eventful, finishing up projects from 2015, starting on new ones this year, shot one of my projects, had a little soiree with college friends in Vegas and checked out the Austin Modern Home Tours.

Today, my Friday finds are shops I fell in love with during my last trip to NOLA. Please forgive me for the awful photos ūüôā They are amazing shops … believe me!

1/ Box Paper Scissors

This shop is a gem! Well-edited, extensively curated, you’ll see finds from Lladro, Kelly Wearstler, Fornasetti & saw this Maison Margiela door decal for the first time, it’s a beaut! From apothecary, fine clothing, paper and Hermes scarves throw pillows and floor poufs, this shop is a dream stop for high end shoppers or for people like me just browsing for endless inspiration.

2/ Rivers Spencer

Unmistakably French & utterly feminine, this design studio and fine furnishings shop is also a must-see. I kinda fell in love with her own collection, like this Shield chair and this Audrey bench.

3/ Leontine Linens

When bespoke monograms is your thing, this is unmistakably linen heaven. They have one of those doorbell things though so it may be a bit awkward if you’re the only one in; it feels like¬†one of those boutiques you dread to visit because you’ll instantly feel like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman even if you’re not wearing any safety pins.

4/ Perch

I’ve loved this store ever since my first time visiting NOLA. They have quite an eclectic collection, from contemporary paintings to antique finds and to furniture they have refurbished themselves. Wallpaper inspiration galore in every corner & they carry one of my fave lines, Timorous Beasties.

5/ Kevin Stone Antiques

My must-check-out store when looking for 40 k chandeliers or 5 k busts — oh because I love the history. The space is pretty tight, not because it’s small but it’s just packed to the brim with finds albeit from the interiors of lords {kings & queens perhaps?} from a bygone area. It’s just a feast to the eyes! Maybe someday soon, I’ll be able to muster the courage to buy a desktop accessory — maybe a letter opener?

Until next week folks. Tomorrow, we’re doing a crawfish boil & watching the Pacquaio fight. What are you doing?
