My Story

Inspired by my first trip to Paris, I created a business focusing on a variety of French and English antiques.  I love buying vintage textiles and lighting. My area of expertise includes brocante and the creative application of vintage fabrics.  I have always been inspired by history, and love being able to source pieces of the past.

I have a fine arts degree from Trinity College, as well as a degree in fashion design from Washington University in St. Louis.  I also attended Parsons School of Design in Paris.  I had my own clothing and handbag lines and later became a stylist, working on several catalog sets for Neiman Marcus, Horchow, and Pier One.  While living in London, I worked as a contributing editor for Mary Engelbreight's Home Companion magazine, producing and styling a number of their UK features.
