One day I received an email inquiry about a vintage wicker birdcage I had for sale.
The person inquiring about it signed off in an unusual manner.
Simply Xo c
It turned out to be the fabulous Celerie Kemble!
We all know that the world has become much more intimate and connecting with each other much more organic.
Well that inquiry led me into finding her a number of items and accessories for her Tropical Retreat in the Dominican Republic!
Let's just say it was quite an adventure and a dream come true for me.
Finding rare and unusual things is my forte and selling them to designers is my ultimate goal.
Well that came to fruition with the publication of Celerie's Dominican Republic Retreat in Architectural Digest this month!
This particular piece found its way front and center in one of her fabulous vignettes!
It's pretty cool to see some of your beloved treasures make it all the way to paradise in The Dominican Republic and onto the pages of Architectural Digest!!!
Here is my wicker piece used as a divider/nightstand between twin beds.
And here is my vintage metal boat in the children's quarters.
She loved all the mid century curly wicker pieces I sent her!
I spy it to the right of the sofa!
It was a blast working with you!
And if you haven't seen this exclusive spread of Celerie Kemble's Playa Grande on Sketch 42 then head over there now!
It's a great escape and perfect to get you in the mood for the weekend!
