Yesterday I paid a visit to Caravan, a shop I've been looking forward to visiting for quite sometime now. Stylist Emily Chalmers, the very talented and lovely owner of Caravan, wrote my top favorite interior design book, Flea Market Style, which I love so much and have read cover to cover at least a dozen times. I can't even express how excited I was to visit her shop and meet her in person! The white-washed shop is warm and inviting with curated touches of vintage treasures, candles in delicate votives, and fresh flowers tucked here and there alongside the store merchandise. Caravan features a variety of delightful merchandise, some of which is quirky and fun like the Lou Rota bug plates, some pretty and elegant like the brilliant silver and gold metal roses, and some modern and functional like the colorful Jielde lamps by Jean-Louis Domecq. And much of what Emily carries is exclusive to Caravan, like those Jielde lamps--Caravan is the primary UK representative for them. You can also pick up a signed copy of one of Emily's books: Flea Market Style, Contemporary Country, or Table Inspirations. If you see something pictured here that isn't in the online shop, Emily would be happy to email more pictures and information. Head over to the shop and get some Caravan Style, and don't forget to pick up you own cute little Caravan!
