Announcing: Trouvé Prop

Announcing: Trouvé Prop

Sometimes a big idea/dream will come to you and you’re unable to shake it. Thoughts swirl around in your head and it continues to simmer on the so-called back burner until you decide to either dismiss it or take action. Last fall, I had one of those ideas that I just couldn’t let go - to develop a unique product line. Since then, I’ve been quietly working behind the scenes to make it a reality. Fast forward to today, we’re set to launch in just a few short weeks and I’m excited to reveal it to you and cast my creative vision out into the world! It’s called Trouvé Prop and I’d like to share what led me to this concept and give you a glimpse of what’s to come.

One of my favorite shops, Elsie Green, just opened up a second location, and it's gorgeous! Their original location has always been a favorite source for inspiration and the design and atmosphere of their new retail space is just as incredible. The bold black and whites mixed with earthy browns are a perfect balance and their selection of wares is unmatched!

Almost everything at Elsie Green is sourced overseas from antique markets and French brocantes, meaning each piece is unique. There's something really special about European antiques - they have character and history that new, manufactured pieces can never replicate. They're one of my favorite home and prop sources when I'm searching for something truly special to add to a space.
