tons of new goodies from john robshaw. we've got pillowcases and queen sheets in all the available patterns and great new pillows from a variety of his collections. they should be in the shop by the end of the week, so hurry in, they don't usually last long. it's amazing what a new throw pillow or set of cases can do to completely change the look of a bed. you don't have to buy the whole set, just bits and pieces can make an impact and you're not spending a fortune for a little luxury ;o) enjoy! and happy shopping! k&m

etsy love...

found these great decoupage frames from trixie & radar on etsy. handmade in fort greene, each one sells for $25 on their etsy page. might be something for openhouse to look into carrying. with the coming of the new website we're going to have the opportunity to branch out a little and take some risks! can't wait. until we see you again, happy shopping! k&m

[the winner! amy coe westport crib for babies r us, $349]

summer is passing fast and we've been super busy with projects. we're getting the shop ready to roll for fall. we're putting together the basics for an openhouse website to be launch sometime in the near future (pretty specific, hunh?) we're prepping for some local fall shows and one of us has been working on a little baby due in october! since i've been on the lookout for all things baby and cool, i thought i'd share a couple of good finds. and we promise that as the cool air of fall, falls, we'll be back in action with the blog.

ideally the baby's room would be filled with high-end design made of environmentally friendly options. but we don't live in an ideal world and i've had to re-adjust the thought process. while maintaining a healthy, eco-friendly environment is numero uno importante (sorry, never took spanish) there have had to be some compromises.

the biggest was with the crib. the argington sahara, netto collection cribs and oeuf options were on the top of the list. they were also at the top of the price scale. so here are a couple of options that i found that make for great alternatives. they are made of wood, non-toxic and available in your local store, which makes their footprint a little less large. i'll be back next week with other great finds that we've stumbled across this summer. enjoy! and happy shopping! k&m
