Thoughtful, Sustainable and Transformative Design
My name is Kandy Christensen and I am a creator, maker, dreamer, photographer, traveler and Certified Interior Decorator. I sell vintage on Etsy because I love the stories that vintage goods tell along with their history.
Living in Chicago I've been lucky to have the richest architecture in the city to drive my inspiration. There are so many styles and eras to draw from. My goal is to help you find your style and for your home be a manifestation of who you are.
As a child I was constantly rearranging rooms and day-dreaming about color and pattern. Items with history appeal to me and I've had a life-long obsession for salvaging materials and reusing them.
While designing is my passion I also love to travel. I like to meet new people and learn about their culture. Those travels spark ideas for new color or patterns that I use in the spaces I design. I shoot old school film on a vintage Ilford camera that I bought on Portobello road in London. Friends often take pictures of me taking pictures.
My design philosophy is strongly driven by the need to incorporate sustainable, thoughtfully made, local and handmade products into the home. I search for treasures, sometimes within your own home, that fit your needs, your design style, who you are, how you live your life and how you want the space to function. I avidly support local artists, artisans, makers and the maker movement. I firmly believe that it is possible to incorporate sustainable practices in design without sacrificing style and while staying on budget.
I believe that every home tells a story. There is an indelible imprint that is left by the things we surround ourselves with. For me, a home is made up of the memories of the people who have passed through those doors. I am inspired by people's histories. I incorporate family heirlooms, childhood treasures, collections, personal ephemera and objects found while traveling into the spaces I design. Let me help you tell your story.
