At some point, we’ve all been on the hunt for a pretty thing — jewelry, dinnerware, bedding, an amazing view of a sunset, flowers, furniture. That thing that will bring beauty and pleasure to our environment. Pretty Things showcase our tastes and desires and can add character to spaces and outfits we want to make our own.
Some of the things I have found to be pretty in the past have far more to do with what they symbolized — my father painting my bedroom pink with blue trim after my excessive begging, my mother gifting me with a new set of pots and pans after moving into my first apartment, a candle left burning in a temple after prayer.
This month we’re going behind some of our favorite pretty things to uncover the founders behind it, their inspiration during the creative process and why a little sparkle can be profitable as well as pretty.
So, stay tuned. It’s going to be a pretty awesome month.
Rock your day!
