of a kind: a limited-edition giveaway.

November 3, 2015

of a kind giveaway reading my tea leaves
Here’s a not-so secret: none of us wants our homes to be boring. We might—some of us—aspire to simplicity, or neatness, or perfectly curated tea collections, but we don’t want our homes to look exactly like someone else’s. Still, given an endless bombardment of products produced in quantities that would outfit every household in your average small town with identical housewares, it can be hard to find your own voice. Happily, there are badass retailers helping in the noble pursuit of creative flair.

Enter Of a Kind. Founded by Erica Cerulo and Claire Mazur, Of a Kind is one of my very favorite places to direct folks who are looking for gifts that both inspire and celebrate individuality. The concept behind the brand is simple: limited-edition runs of beautiful home goods, clothing, and jewelry produced in small batches by emerging designers. 

Adding a special je ne sais quoi to my own humble space in these photos are the Tactic Dot Pillow by Archive New York and the Playing Field Candlesticks and Tray by Good Thing, both currently available at Of a Kind. But more important, both are part of a special giveaway for three of you.

    Ah….I LOVE that you referenced the “snoozin’ and treats” bit from that Marcel the Shell video! We say that all the time to our dog. 🙂

    Greetings from Paris!

    Really loving the idea behind this company, wish the competition was available here in France though! As always a great post and not contrived or pushy at all!

    Hi Erin! Your choices are definitely beautiful and it’s a shame these are not available here in the UK. Funnily enough, I bought a sideboard exactly this color a few months ago (oh, the joy of moving apartments and finding out the shallow cabinets will not fit all your stuff – but at least there is room for a sideboard!) and put on white lilies over it just last weekend (they still smell amazing, btw). Before that I had hot pink gerberas and roses, which I got for my birthday and initially rejected the idea of combining the two colors, but it is amazing how they go well together (when you’re feeling adventurous with colour you should definitely try 😉 On a separate note, where did you get your beewax candles from?

      I got these from a local shop—not sure precisely who makes them!
