On Thursday, Dec 5, h a b i t a t g r e e n w i c h founder Kim Caravella is hosting a how-to session titled, “How to Style Your Shelves” in her Cos Cob shop from 1:00-3:00pm.
“I’m eager to excite people with three decades of design knowledge and input. I’ll offer creative ideas people can bring to their own homes including how to do coffee tables, book shelves, and consoles.”
“It’s a scientific and mathematical equation,” Caravella continued. “The common mistake people make is in proportion and scale, and not juxtaposing the right textures and materials. This can be so exciting when you use the right materials. You can spend a lot of money but that doesn’t result in excitement,” she added.
Caravella’s shop offers an authentic, inspiring, boutique shopping experience.
The mix features a carefully curated fresh, chic and relevant mix of new world and old world styles, plus unique furniture, home and leisure objects, original artwork and everyday essentials.
Expect a timeless mix of classic, modern and organic styles from around the globe. The inventory features the creations of world wide artisans.
She hand selects every unique shop item.
