6 Etsy Shops You Need To Know About!

“Where’d you get THAT?!” is my favorite response to sharing a space with you guys. I love using unique home decor and fixtures and Etsy is one of my secret weapons for finding pieces that feel special. When my friends at Etsy invited us to share some of our favorite shops with you all, I knew we could highlight so many just from the Gentry project alone! Here are some of the Etsy shops we keep coming back to over and over again!

Cascade Iron Co.

When we started designing the Gentry kitchen, I knew that in addition to our upper cabinets, we wanted to use open shelving to help keep everything light and airy. These handmade steel brackets from Cascade Iron Co. fit the bill perfectly! This shop allows you to pick both size and finish. We chose their 12″ depth and the waxed raw steel finish on these brackets and I think they’re perfect in this home!

Next up is one of my all-time favorite shops, Lucent Lightshop!

Lucent Lightshop is a local company, run by the MOST amazing people. They can make basically any light for you, but they also have an amazing selection posted in their Etsy shop, ready to go.  We commissioned a lot of these pieces we put in the house, and many of them have been added to Lucent’s collection! :)

The next Etsy shop on our list is Vintage Kilim Shop!

Nothing completes a room like a vintage rug. Something about adding a bit of old with all the new brings the entire space to life! I have been buying vintage rugs on Etsy for years, and one of my favorite shops is the Vintage Kilim Shop! They break down all of their rugs into categories which makes it so easy when you have a good sense of what you’re looking for. Trust me when I say that you can spend hours browsing absolutely STUNNING vintage rugs on Etsy, so this feature is a big time saver! If you’re new to the world of vintage rugs, I think Oushaks are a great place to start. These rugs are always faded into the most beautiful tones! Another one of my tricks is to search the term “Oushak runner” from Etsy’s home page, which will show you everything Etsy has to offer in this style! (We recently used vintage Oushak rugs here and here too!)

Another great Etsy shop to check out is The Bead Chest!

Decorative beads are so pretty on a coffee table or an entry console. These beads are in local shops for $50 or $60 per strand, but I love getting ours for WAY less on Etsy in shops like The Bead Chest. They have a large selection and ship fast.

Here are a few of our favorites that look so pretty on a tray or a coffee table book.

Our next favorite Etsy shop is Sew and Cloth!

Sew and Cloth is another great local company, run by amazing people! I LOVE their Etsy shop for finding affordable mudcloth pillows, which are my favorite layering pattern. The subtle color and pattern pairs SO well with more colorful pillows.

Our next favorite shop on Etsy is the Air Plant Greenhouse.

I love incorporating faux or real plants into every room I design and air plants are one of my favorites. They are low maintenance, require zero potting and many are the most beautiful shade of bluey sage green!

Sourcing unique air plants locally can be challenging, and when you do find them, they tend to have a limited selection or be overpriced. Buying air plants online from shops like Air Plant Greenhouse gives you access to a large selection at totally reasonable prices!

Gentry Kids Room Reveal


DINO print

Next up on the Gentry reveal list is the kid’s bedroom! This was the perfect space to use one of our newest prints, DINO from photographer Kate Lines. Isn’t it the coolest? I think this would be fun blown up really big even in a living room! The colors in the new print look great with these AMAZING vintage headboards we got at an antique mall. I’m just loving the combo with the striped rug and those bright yellow blankets! I also love the proportions of the longer console table we used as a shared nightstand between to the two twin beds. There’s plenty of room for the cute table lamps and a few books!

This was a fun, quick room to put together. I like that it is clearly a kids space but the colors and textures still work nicely with the rest of the furnishings in the house.

Gentry Family Room and Mudroom Reveal

Just off the dining room in the Gentry project house, and next to the office we showed you last week, is a casual family room and mudroom space. Considering these rooms used to be an exterior workshop, I think these spaces turned out beautifully and help this house flow SO much better!



If I were the new homeowner, this is the room where I’d put my TV and toys for the kids. It’s still connected to the living and dining spaces, but it’s also self contained enough that the rest of the house should be able to stay a little tidier! :)

In this family room space, we hung three new prints from Canadian artist Holly Young that are now available in the print shop –  Collage I, Collage II & Collage III! I’m obsessed with this cut paper collage series!

The door to the garage is just to the right of this photo, so we thought a small-but-mighty mudroom area that offered closed storage, a bench with baskets and hooks for bags and backpacks would be the perfect addition to this pass-through space.

I’m super happy with how this mudroom turned out, given it is just two IKEA Pax wardrobes (we used the Grimo door)! Our contractor installed and made the wardrobes look more built-in with the addition of crown molding and shiplap using the same 8″ pine planks we used on the entry wall. Here are a couple of a progress shots:




We used these wrought iron pulls on the doors, also from IKEA. We used these in the kitchen too and I couldn’t love them more. They are heavy and have great proportions!



I designed the wood bench and our contractor built it out of mahogany (the same wood we used on the mantle and the kitchen shelving). We used these petite hooks that were insanely affordable and I love the matte black finish! PS how cute is that tiny denim backpack?! I found it at Michael’s for $8!


The green linen lumbar pillow is from our pillow collection that we’re launching next week! Stay tuned! :)

Weekly Favorites – Oversized Lamps and Side Tables

Today’s round up is dedicated to one of my favorite tricks for decorating a living room – the tall round table and big lamp combo! Rather than matching side tables, use a tall round table as a side table instead, with something shorter on the opposite side. Pairing the tall table with an oversized table lamp is pretty much the ideal combo. It adds height and interest and is a fun, easy way to mix up your living room without breaking te bank if you need a little change. I find myself using this trick in most of our living room projects lately!

We’ve rounded up a few tables that really work for pulling off this look. The trick is using a table that is 29-31″ tall and at least 30″ in diameter. Much wider than 40″ looks a little too big, but anywhere in between usually looks juuuuust right!

Here are some of our favorite table lamps on the market right now. I usually prefer something chunky and wide to tall and skinny. And if I’m using a leggy table, I try not to use a leggy table lamp. I reserve those for chests of drawers or nightstands.
