Let Vintage Goods Tell Your Story
As a designer, I have always believed that your home should be a reflection of you. It should reflect the feelings, the vibe and the history of you. It should project exactly what you want others to know about you when they enter your space in an unspoken language.
I decided to create this Etsy shop as a resource to help you achieve the look you want to create in your home, to build the layers of personality in the design of your space and to help you find meaningful objects that will come together in your home to tell YOUR story. Finding just the right item for your wall, kitchen island counter top, child's room, or mantel space will help reflect your style, personality and the life that you bring to your home. Maybe you saw it once in an antique store, or maybe it was on the wall in your grandmother's kitchen, or maybe it's just in your mind's eye, but I am out on the prowl finding great pieces that will speak to you.
This Etsy adventure began a few years ago when I was at a crossroads in life. It was the first day of school and my youngest son waved good-bye to me from the steps of the school bus, and I thought 'What is next for me?" My identity was tied directly to my title Stay-At-Home-Mom and now there was no one to stay at home with. It was time for me to find a new direction and new purpose. I had a lot of soul searching to do. My choices as I saw them were:
-Go back to my before-kids-career in the corporate world or
-Go back to my roots (I was raised by parents who were antique collectors/refinishers/sellers and I grew up running through the dusty aisles of antique stores and auction houses) or
-Go with my heart, my passion, my continuing education, and my talent: interior design.
Ultimately, I landed on a hybrid of all the options - home design/decor in the eclectic, flea market style using my business savvy. Enter Etsy where my passion and purpose came together.
My shop was named Calm, Cool & Collected Vintage as a play on words. It not only grounds me and gives me purpose, it also refers to the great pieces I gather for interest and dimension in your space.
