scents and sensibility
Walk in and breathe deep, ahhh, fig, cassis, moss and milk. A treat for the senses found at the lovely k. hall design (lucky for me, based right here in St. Louis). The most talented duo, Kelley and John, own and run k. hall with their incredibly kind small staff. The vibe is casual and the shop divine; draped with raw linens, peppered with hand-blown glass and vintage wire baskets, scents subtly filling the air, an invitation to curl up with tea and bask in the sprawling window front of this fabulous find. The coveted warehouse sale was this past weekend as I swooned and stocked up on soaps, candles and creams. Made of essential oils in an intimate apothecary-like setting, notes of rose, orange and flax swirl and soak to create these intoxicating blends. All products are packaged in simple glass bottles topped with metal caps and wrapped in labels of clean type and desaturated hues, reminiscent of a neighborhood general store. And not just in my neighborhood, find a location near you on the site and indulge your sense of smell.
periwinklebloom is so very happy to be this fine shop.
And a kind mention today on designmom thanks to Summer of fawn & forest! I'm quite grateful.
Every time I get a script it's a matter of trying to know what I could do with it. I see colors, imagery. It has to have a smell. It's like falling in love. You can't give a reason why. ~Paul Newman
