A Capitol Idea

In case you missed our "leak" to our e-mail subscribers last week (and buried in our last blog post), it's finally official: Revival Home & Garden is relocating to Capitol Hill, on 12th -- the area now known around town as the "Pike/Pine Corridor."

We could not be more excited to call businesses such as Barrio, Cupcake Royale, Izilla Toys, Tavern Law, Osteria La Spiga, Retrofit Home, and more as our new neighbors. Looks like the news is already traveling.

Our grand re-opening is planned for October 1, and of course you are all invited!

Now back to packing...

Back to the move....our goal is to reopen in our new location October 1. Where is this new location, you ask? And why have you been so mysterious about it?

Turns out it has taken us a heck of a long time to a) find the right location and b) sign the lease on said location. We're signing the lease this week (can you say "down to the wire"?), but we'll tell you this much: Capitol Hill. 12th Avenue.

Stay tuned for further details! And mark your calendars for Thursday, October 1, when we plan to have one heck of an opening night celebration.

Oh, Baby

We could not be more excited to be partnering with Tottini, one of our favorite local retailers for small ones, to design and give away a fantastic and virtually complete nursery....all it needs is a little one to call it (cry it?) home.

Tottini provided the gorgeous (and solidly built, I might add, after sliding them around the store) crib and changing table from swoon-inducing interior designer David Netto's Netto Collection. We provided the concept and decorative accessories, including some fantastic pieces from a new line we're carrying, Stray Dog Designs.

Most of their pieces are crafted from some combination of tole and papier-mache, and all are finished with low-VOC paint in shades from Benjamin Moore. They're an interesting company that lives by their values, and it doesn't hurt that their items are, as we say in the South, cute as all get out.

Here's a peek at our inspiration board for the design:

You may notice a number of our other go-to vendors represented in our contributions: Dash & Albert for their high-style, low-cost cotton rug; Mod Green Pod for accent fabric used on the wall art (we envisioned this pattern in wallpaper in the "real" nursery), and Thomas Paul for a quirky linen throw pillow.

And, of course, no nursery worth its salt would be caught without an alabaster stag head gracing its wall.

All pieces featured in the vignette, currently on display at Tottini, will be given away to one lucky winner at the end of September (details to follow). So if you are expecting or know a worthy recipient who is, enter to win at Tottini or Revival Home & Garden prior to the giveaway.

And if you don't win, we'd love for you to drop us a line if your nursery could use a style infusion; we can help!

After all, shouldn't the first room a child sees be a good one?

The Sound of Silence

So sorry for the lack of posts over the last few weeks.... between juggling design projects, finalizing our new location, and trying to sell our remaining inventory before we leave at month's end, blogging has been relegated to the back burner. Every day I think, "Today I will finally get around to posting that fabulous (insert great idea here)." And every day I end up looking at the clock over a stack of work and invariably choosing sleep.

Though not the post I've been trying to get around to (which is truly fabulous, so check back in a few days for a peek inside my neighbor Jon's personality-packed home), I thought I'd quickly share some goodies resulting from tonight's research for a project: New rugs from Madeline Weinrib!

And while I have never actually seen a Weinrib rug in person, their frequency in shelter mags makes me almost feel like I have one. (Raspberry and white zig-zag, anyone?)

Sadly, for my first six months of business, I begged Madeline's representatives to allow me to sell her work, but as of now, they're still not represented by anyone in the area. Madeline, are you listening? Seattle needs us some zig-zag!

These are undoubtedly headed for a forthcoming issue or two of Elle Decor, and rightfully so: they are gorgeous. See for yourself.

(Might I add that Madeline and I both seem to be having a pink moment? I can't get enough of it lately!)
