yesterday amy merrick and i hopped in a bright red and jetted across town looking for craft supplies to style a photoshoot for magazine ( for a sneak peek of the shoot). after visiting and ikea, we headed to our ultimate destination: the new in red hook.
i’m a massive, massive fan of (and owners sarah and eric) and was so thrilled to not only visit the shop, but get to use the gorgeous new space as a backdrop for the shoot. after we finished the work part of the day i took a few minutes just to sit at gawk at the new space. designed by architect jeremy barbour of , the new space feels like walking into the most beautiful weathered wooden box you’ve ever seen. every corner holds some beautiful surprise tucked into a wooden cubbyhole and the smell of saipua soap fills the air.
if you’re in the nyc area, the brand new shop will officially open its doors this saturday, august 22nd. if you are in town i highly suggest heading over and checking things out (and then grabbing a sweet treat at and something pretty from on the way out). until then, to check out the new images on sarah’s blog (and to check out more photos on jeremy’s site) congrats to sarah and eric on their gorgeous new shop!
