Flea Market Finds

So I have some good news and bad news. The bad first:
I left the flea market without this baby!  Such an amateur move. The perfect purple- that's no filter people.  I'm seriously thinking about going back next month to hunt it down and see if it's still there.

Now for the good news:

All of these scarves came home with me.  Keep your eye out for new framed vintage scarves at K.R.T. Home.

Coming soon: framed vintage hankies! For those that want in on the fun but need a more affordable option! 

What do you want to see more of at K.R.T. Home?

#TBT Living Room Love

Because I love me a good Throw Back Thursday, here's a look at all of my living rooms to date. It's so fun to see how style evolves over the years and what things stay constant. 
Our First apartment

Our studio apartment

Our first home
I'm already looking forward to how my next one will come together.  I'm leaning a little more approachable, boho, and collected. Maybe a colored sofa??? Which living room was your favorite?

P.S.
K.R.T. Home is set to launch next week!  Don't forget to like us on facebook to keep up to date.

Design Camp OC


Sometimes things just work out. If you you would have planned them they wouldn't have happend. As you know K.R.T. Home is in the works (set to launch next week!!) and it has pretty much consumed my life.  Every extra dollar has been spend on product and bringing everything to life. When I saw that Typhanie was hosting a giveaway to attend Design Camp, right by my house in the O.C. I entered thinking it would be the perfect opportunity to learn about marketing my new store, network with designers who could possibly buy from my store, and meet some pretty inspiring people. I was beyond shocked and excited when I found out that I had won! I would have never been able to afford the ticket right now, but I can't think of better timing. I'm sticking to the thought that it was just meant. It was a seriously an amazing three days- I literally feel like I my brain is exploding with new information and totally have the inspiration to really get going. I def recommend Design Camp to anyone interested in working in the design field. 

Top three things I took away:
1. Social media is everything.  I will now be blowing up all of your feeds.
2. Knowing your brand inside and out is essential. I have literally spent the last three days breaking down K.R.T. a million different ways. 
3. The community is pretty awesome.  I was so nervous to go all by myself, intimidated by the fact that I wouldn't know a soul.  Everyone was incredibly supportive and easy to talk to.  I made a ton of new friends I hope to keep in touch with.

Oh yea, and these people were pretty awesome too:

I was so excited to hear Paloma from La Dolce Vita. I have followed her for a while now and she had a ton of good advice on blogging. 
I'm now obsessed with Nathan Turner.  So charming and relatable in person. 

I want to be Kathryn Irelands bestie.  She was as hilarious in real life as I expected. Kelli Ellis and Lori Dennis  are the women behind the camp and were amazing.  They did such a great job at making everyone feel comfortable and really set the tone for a fun and approachable event. 
The next Design Camp will be in Las Vegas and I highly recommend anyone interested in design attend. I can't get over how much I took away in only a few days.

VINTAGE.miniatures.BEFORE.


One of my favorite things about vintage pieces is the history behind them.  I'm a total sucker for a good story and my latest find is no exception.  When I saw these adorable little chairs I fell in love.  Everything is better miniature right? The man I bought them from explained to me that he got them from an estate sale.  The woman they belonged to was a photographer for Warner Bros. studios and these were two of her many props. How fun is that?  I can't help but imagine what little stars and starlets of the past may have sat in these little chairs.
Beside a full size chair for scale.
These little beauties will be up on K.R.T. Home, but not before they get a little make over. What colors would you like to see them?

SLOWLY.but.SURELY.

Things are moving along slow and steady around here.  When I first talked about K.R.T. Home I thought it would actually be up and going a lot more quickly.  I should have known better. There are so many little details that go in to starting a new business and I want to make sure everything is perfect before we launch. Thanks for everyone's patience.  It WILL launch this month!

There is just something about having a business card that makes it all seem more real. Btw, I totally borrowed Tiffany's idea and used a gold leaf pen around the edges.
