The other night we were invited to attend an opening for a new boutique, Blue Owl, located in one of the most charming areas of the city. As we walked in that night, I couldn't help but notice that the entire boutique was filled to the brim with people—laughing, smiling, some in vintage attire, some in new, some clutching rather prettily created desserts and champagne, and some watching the fun black and white clips displayed on the wall. And then of course, there were all of the wonderful items that shop owner Amanda Michas has carefully selected for Blue Owl. From books to furniture, blankets and tableware, there is a lovely array of unique pieces to add to the home. So much so, it was impossible to leave without selecting a few treasures to bring home with us—as you see a few shown, above.
"Blue Owl specializes in one of a kind pieces, each one hand picked based on the feelings they evoke. Surrounded in European aesthetic combined with whimsical inspirations you will find yourself amongst classic, ornate, vintage finds which embody perfect patinas, immaculate restorations and the purity of loved genuine antiques." And as I was trying to select a single teacup to take home from her teacup display cabinet, I was speaking with Amanda, (who was clearly in her element) and as she looked upon the teacups as tiny works of art to be appreciated, I claimed how difficult it must be to see them go. With a little twinkle in her eye and a tiny smile, she replied, "I can always find more."
I cannot wait to stop in again soon to see what Amanda has discovered lately...
