An ongoing love affaire with all things fashionable, tasty and fun

Camille K Atelier

I recently made the trek from San Francisco to Mountain View to visit the Camille K Atelier, and believe me when I say that this trip was absolutely worth the holiday traffic and schizophrenic Winter weather.

The cavernous showroom had a distinctly Parisian feel with the fabulous wall art, round glass display cases, and black velvet jewelry busts to show off the one-of-a-kind jewels.

Aside from the phenomenal jewelry – I’ll get to that in just one moment – my favorite part of their studio were the three giant floor-to-ceiling mood boards. Swoon. I immediately started brainstorming ways to make this kind of larger-than-life artistic project a feasible option for my apartment.

The decorating style of the shop combined with the beautiful vintage & vintage-inspired pieces themselves created an amazing experience – You were transported to a chic little French atelier in the 30’s or 40’s.

Of course I couldn’t help but try on a few pieces and I finally finished up the trip by buying myself a little treat – This Cheri Bracelet with a starburst charm hanging from the clasp. It’s classic but eye-catching and unique – The precise reasons that I worship vintage jewelry.

I highly recommend making a trip to Camille K and with Valentine’s Day quickly approaching I highly recommend taking a look at their website and dropping some hints to your beau!

    • I highly highly recommend a trip to the atelier, but you can also shop online which is great. You’ll have to tell Mr. T about it in time for Valentine’s Day! 🙂

      I can totally see you wearing one of the maltese cross-inspired pieces! They’re really dramatic and eye-catching but stil have that classic, timeless feel.
