Roman and Williams

Roman and Williams is one of my favorite design firms. I came across their work a few years ago when I was looking at pictures of flat file cabinets, which I love (and will be posting about soon).

I love their style. I feel like if I were to walk into the spaces that they designed, I would be transformed into another time period. It reminds me of the 60’s. To me it looks modern but in a classic way.

Here are some photos:

This is theĀ fourth street loft, which is my absolute favorite residential project that they’ve done.

Their office is amazing. I’m actually using it as inspiration for a project for my space planning class.

Hope you enjoyed the little spotlight on Roman and Williams, and please go check out their work here. They have other amazing designs in their project list.

Etsy: Peg and Awl

Hello! I thought I’d start a new category called “limelight”; which is, me, talking about a favorite designer, photographer, etsy store, etc… Basically, putting them in the spotlight. The center of attention.

So today, I want to talk about Peg and Awl.

Peg and Awl were created by the husband and wife duo: Walter and Margaux Kent. I came across their beautiful book necklaces a year or so ago while I was searching for miniature things. (I’m quite fond of anything miniature… I mean, who isn’t? It’s adorable!) They work with a lot of reclaimed materials and they also have multiple etsy shops for paintings, hand bound journals, and vintage treasures!

Here’s a some of my favorite things from the Peg and Awl etsy shop:

1. Wood Tub Caddy
Made from Reclaimed Oak. Perfect for a relaxing bath!
2. Smoke Stacks – 3 Recycled Olde Growth Pine Candle Holders
well… don’t you need candles for that relaxing bath? :)
3. Autumnal Library Book Necklace
11 antique leather-covered books. Isn’t it cute? I’m going to make one. Stay tuned!
4. Desk caddy
Made from reclaimed wood from the 1800’s. I would definitely want this on my desk.
5. Chalkboard Tablet
Made from reclaimed wood and leather. Perfect for the fridge or near your bed or desk to write down reminders! You can also findĀ  this in anthropologie.


hope you take a look at their shop! :) Enjoy!
