mixing and matching

i really like the look of rustic and modern, modern meets vintage, beach bungalow in the mountains, brights contrasting neutrals, eclectic yet simple, mixing patterns, prints, textures....who says you can't have it all?! my advice, don't overcommit to a theme and leave it open to continually grow and enhance your space...

it's a taste test kind of day...

both of us lost + founders love etsy, as seen here, here, here, and here...and one of my favorite things to do is the taste test. i get such varying results every time....
 a great refection of not only my taste, but my mood and the weather, and a great source for inspiration and new talent...

 feather print by groundwork
 recycled grainsack tote from treesizeverse
marigold cloth napkins by pony and poppy
 belt-bag by karen kell

we love seeing the results, send us your faves!

sooo one of the perks of this latest job of mine is meeting with some pretty awesomely creative individuals!  pretty stoked about my meeting with mr. franc zamudio. please take a moment to swoon over his simple+gorgeous+modern+mid-century-esque+sustainable+local furniture designs.

welcome back, i hope you all had a lovely weekend!

as you know, lost + found is not a fashion blog, but we do love our vintage finds, treasures, and repurposed items....on that note, ohhh emmm geeee, these are so stinking cute. i need to get myself a pair asap!

a throwback to the 60s, kiboots bring together vintage kilim rugs and high quality leather...genius! unique, wearable, sustainable, adorable!
jovanna kruitbosch and martijn lugtigheid, the founders of kiboots, also a couple, just celebrated a successful year of business
 after they found a vintage pair of similar boots, they decided to upgrade the look....ta daaaa! now they travel to find the best kilim rugs with unique patterns and durable quality to match with excellent leathers to create one of a kind styles
  for every pair purchased, they match 1 euro used for projects involving their artisans in sustainable projects
get the full scoop here:
