If you love mid century modern combined with eye poppin’ bold vintage textiles, Poppy Cotton is the place for you. Specializing in home accessories handcrafted from vintage textiles, they feature kerchief pillows, cotton pillows, wall hangings and bright funkadelic lampshades that will remind you of times past. Wayyyy past. Melissa Cotton Womack is the designer behind Poppy Cotton, a Park Slope Brooklyn resident that designs with the goal of recreating the feel of some of her favorite movies, like The Stepford Wives. Melissa blends vintage and modern florals to create whimsical charm for the home. I think they’re pretty groovy, baby! Love those orange poppy blooms. Delish!

Have you visited Urban Mercantile lately? Located in the city of cable cars and Alcatraz, this San Francisco based store offers the rest of us e-commerce so we can shop online. Their website is a sublime haven for shoppers craving refined modern household goods. Sumptuous linens, ceramics and glass are just a few of their offerings. I like the the graphic pillow in muted tones of taupe and powder blue on muslin, silk screen printed by the hands of Kevin Harris. Did you see the Keokeo (Hawaiian term for muslin) glass vases and bowls? They are hand-crafted by Daniel Wooddell. The pomegranate ceramics created by Whitney Smith are another favorite. Artist Lina Felicia renders enticing graphics in brown and white on these hand silk screened toss pillows.
