Under the Sea...

With spring in full bloom and summer quickly on the way, I've been dreaming about the beach. Lucky for me, I found these great vintage-inspired dishes from Anthropologie to remind me of the ocean.

 I love the tentacle handle on this tea cup...

These melamine Thomas Paul Sea Life plates would be fantastic at the beach.

I can't wait to stash jewelry in this lovely octopus plate from Apartment 48.

Pleased to Meet You...

Welcome to the Octavia & Brown blog! My name is Liz and I have a passion for great design. I can't seem to walk by a thrift store or flea market without stopping by. This blog will be a place to share design inspiration, vintage goodies, DIY projects, and updates from my vintage shop.

A few things I believe in...
1. Great design can come from any era.
2. Everyone should have at least one item in their home that they REALLY, REALLY love (hopefully more).
3. Your home should be your happy place. 
4. Decorating shouldn’t give you a headache.
5. Flowers are always the perfect accessory. 
6. Finding vintage items you love shouldn’t break the bank.
7. Your lucite table and your Grandmother's wing chair can live happily together.
8. Needlepoint and monograms are always chic.
9. Vintage items make fantastic gifts.
10. Traveling provides the best inspiration and coffee table treasures.

I hope you'll stop back soon!
