Boutique of the Week: {mac & murphy}

Mac & Murphy is a sweet little stationery and paper boutique in downtown Charleston. Upon stepping into the white and airy shop, I immediately feel at home. From custom invitations and prints to crafts and ‘just because’ cards, this local gem is a stationery lover’s dream come true.

light up the room

I am in desperate need of a new floor lamp for my main room. I’ve been searching for the past several months, but haven’t been able to find something that fits my personal style and taste.

I’d like something classic, yet modern; neutral, yet doesn’t lack edge or personality; and I keep going back and forth between looking for an investment piece vs. something to fit the bill for now.

Furbish Pop-Up

I’ve been ordering eccentric and whimsical items from Furbish Studio in Raleigh, North Carolina for over two years now (see here). I even looked into applying for a job there when I had originally decided that I’d like to move down South.

All of this being said, receiving an invitation to the Furbish pop-up shop right here in Charleston immediately perked my interest. I picked up a few fabulous finds, but could have done a heck of a lot more damage should my bank account have permitted me to do so, and I think Charleston would be the perfect location for Furbish’s next permanent shop.

Some of my favorite pieces currently in the online shop–some of which I may or may not have purchased at the pop-up:

1. chair  |  2. napkins  |  3. print  |  4. vase  |  5. necklace

6. towel  |  7. recipe box  |  8. desk lamp  |  9. candlesticks

Teil Duncan

I’ve been keeping a close eye on local artist Teil Duncan’s beach-inspired paintings for awhile, so when she held Teil Duncan: Bask, An Art Show of Coastal Paintings right here in Charleston, I was eager to take a look. Pops of pinks, blues, greens, and yellows… Something to keep me in summer-mode all year long.

I was very disappointed to see upon arriving, though, that everything had already been pre-sold online. What’s the perk of being there in-person if somebody from New Mexico could have snatched the painting from me two days earlier? It just wasn’t meant to be, I guess, and my art collection remains slim for now. Until I invest in my own, below are some of my favorites from her Bask series.
