A Letter from Your Mom

Darling, it’s about your apartment.

We can overlook the disrepair you call period details, but you were raised better than to live like an animal among subpar decor.

Do you remember Mary Graf and Jenny Moore from Nashville? Well, you need to know about their new business, Le Cart. They scour flea markets (Alameda, San Anselmo, with plans to head to the Rose Bowl), estate sales, and antiques shops for fabulous pieces to make their own: carved Italian pineapple sconces with gold leaf, blue and white ceramic vases and urns, and a wooden fretwork etagere — they painted it canary yellow. Wild, huh?

Since Moore is an interior designer, the ladies source quality fabrics (Schumacher, Kelly Wearstler) from the SF Design Center to refurbish their eclectic finds, making them one of a kind.

It’s all available at their champagne showcase parties — you can sign up for updates.

Isn’t that a riot?
