Sarah Ives' Profile

About

I'm Sarah. I am a lover of home and home decor. I am inspired by texture, design, and patina. I love vintage and handmade items because they have a spirit of their own.

Creating my line of curtain accessories is a labor of love for me. I scour flea markets, estate sales and auctions looking for vintage bits of bling to give my designs life. I love how fabric can tie a room together and opposites certainly do attract as I strive to use a juxtaposition of materials to help create a one-of-a-kind look for your home. A look that is both upscale and downhome at the same time. I find joy in creating these tie backs and it is my hope that they will add joy to your home every time you look at them.

Not only are my Infinity tie backs unique; they are versatile because they allow you to change the look of your decor in seconds! Change your tie backs seasonally or at your every whim; the choice is up to you and the possibilities are endless! I also stock vintage items in my shop because I discover so many amazing treasures in my adventures. My design creativity is fueled by my vintage finds plus plenty of Diet Coke, Good and Plentys, and a long night's sleep.

I believe in reducing waste in our landfills so I package my tie backs in a reusable canvas bag. My vintage items are shipped in recycled packaging.

Right now my Etsy shop is a part time venture but I would love to successfully bring it to full time status.

I was featured on the Etsy blog for GET THE LOOK DECOR: http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2011/get-the-look-decor-upscale-downhome/

My website is www.upscaledownhome.com and I sell a line of Infinity curtains that allow you change the look of your window treatments quickly and easily.

My blog is www.upscaledownhome.net and is written about a small town girl's perspective on decorating, thrifting, collecting, and living.
