Vendor Spotlight and GIVEAWAY: House of Peltier (CLOSED)

Friday, February 19, 2010 | by Newlywed | Labels: , , , |


The understated chic and style of our next Vendor Spotlight is what initially caught my eye. House of Peliter on Etsy is full of fresh inspiration for both your home and wardrobe. As an interior designer at heart, Amy, the creative mind behind House of Peltier, pays close attention to color and detail when designing her products – each item playing a small, but intricate part of the larger picture and ambience of the room. Her lovely array of pillows – from bold blues to vibrant yellows – each offer color and character of their own.

As an artist, Amy naturally dabbled in other arts, including jewelry. Made of fine materials, including genuine freshwater and mother of pearls, her jewelry are perfect accessories to your elegant attire. As the host of this giveaway, I received a pair of Mother of Pearl earrings, and was really impressed with quality of the pearls -- shiny, smooth and iridescent. The gold knotted design above the pearls offer a lovely, sophisticated touch to the pair. Amy is currently expanding her interior design collection on etsy, so without further ado, introducing Amy from House of Peltier!

You have a diverse collection of items in your shop. What kind of items do you sell?
Being an interior designer I love fabrics, so I started my Etsy shop with pillows. However the more involved I became the more creative I got, so I started adding things like coasters and napkin rings. My parents live in Shanghai and my mom likes to keep busy by sending me pearls, so that's why I started making jewelry. I will always keep my jewelry collection small and it will probably always have a bridal feeling to it I have an obsession with weddings. But my next additions will be focused more on interior design again.


How do you describe your style?
Fresh, Flirty, Feminine, and Fun

Which pieces of your work would you say would be perfect for weddings? Why?
I think my jewelry is perfect for weddings. Pearls just belong on a wedding day because they have that feminine and romantic feeling to them. But I also make napkin rings and I have a lot of inquiries from brides who want to use them as part of their table decor.


What was your favorite detail of your wedding?
My wedding was the ultimate creative experience for me. I really cannot pick a favorite detail, I had a papaya and chocolate colored theme and I planned out everything around those colors including a smoked salmon appetizer because it had that papaya coloring to it. I am obsessive about details!

Any advice for brides-to-be out there?
The best advice I can give is to have a reception plan. I was caught up in the moment, greeting every guest, and being the best host I could be. But I forgot to sit back for a moment and enjoy the best day of my life. Don't forget to do that, even if it is for just a moment.

Links where we can find out more of your work:
I currently have all of my handmade product for sale on Etsy, but I am working on two websites. www.peltierinteriors.com is where my portfolio and virtual design will be, and www.houseofpeltier.com will be dedicated to all of my jewelry that I sell at local shows. This jewelry is not found on Etsy because it is not handmade. So stay tuned!

Now onto our giveaway!!!

Amy has been gracious in giving one lucky winner a pair of genuine, cultured freshwater pearl earrings! Each earring is accentuated by a knotted gold bead, and attached to a gold plated hook. They’re wonderful for a formal event (perhaps a wedding!) or even with casual attire!
