Summer is here and we are so excited to share our NEW Big Sur Collection and more about the inspiration that helped to create it! All of Stephanie’s designs for this coastal collection pay homage to the diverse nature found in this awe inspiring place!

Last summer, owner & designer Stephanie Housley was lucky enough to visit Big Sur on the California coast. She and her husband Chris explored the habitats on sea cliffs and fields that bordered the ocean, hiked through the magnificent redwood forests and observed all the majestic wildlife that calls this magical place home.

“Big Sur is notable and particularly inspiring to me in many ways, from the sweeping vistas that truly feel like the edge of the planet, to the diversity of wildlife--- found both in the ocean and in the neighboring forests and fields. It is an isolated place where we had the availability to observe and absorb nature in its fullest beauty. We saw a bobcat on the hiking trail near the Redwood grove the first morning, which set the tone for an overall awe inspiring time. It was an unusually active time for humpback whales and they entertained us for hours on end, breaching, breathing, tail slapping and waving hello. When we walked down to the ocean on the first evening just before dusk, we stumbled upon two coyote pups who seemed just as surprised to see us as we were them! We later observed the mother coyote catching lizards to feed them. And of course, the eternally playful and hilarious sea otters that occupy the brimming kelp forest and yield bountiful inspiration and joy.” - Stephanie, owner & designer Over the years we have phased out many of our earlier coastal themed designs, so we are thrilled to announce these beautiful new imaginings with our Big Sur Collection!
