Anatomy of a Shop VignetteJune 20, 2019
For me, often a reset of a table display starts with one idea or one grouping of goods. In this case, it was the new ceramic scalloped dishes & platters we just received from Seattle artist Monika Dalkin. I knew I wanted them to be the anchor for this vignette as you first walked into the door of the First & Spring shop. Food safe, I am loving that each piece is a little different and has a slightly earthy organic vibe to it. Then I start layering. The vintage watering cans we found a Brimfield had a coloring I liked with the ceramics. Which led me to the table being about flowers in many forms. Books, soaps, cards, plates, mugs, coasters and jams all became part of the flowery mix. Then the Livia Cetti paper geraniums got placed, pulling the whole floral theme together.
