Wallpaper Wednesday: Fall Edition Pt. 1

As you may already know, wallpaper is sort of a big deal here at Chelsea Lane & Company. Now, before you get taken back by the word wallpaper, don’t think of it as your grandma’s floral covered walls (unless that’s what you’re into). Instead, think of it as an easy way to add cool illusions, prints and textures to your walls without the hassle of paint.

Similar our previous post, Feature Friday, every few Wednesdays we’ll be showcasing some of our favorite wallpapers that we recommend. For this edition of Wallpaper Wednesday, we show you some our customers' favorites for this season.

Fall is in full effect, so that means all the trends have officially come into play. Of course like everything else, there are different trends for fall in the wallpaper category as well. Although wallpapers are kept for years and years to come, there are a few that people usually like to buy during this time. Today we’ll cover some of our best sellers and then stay tuned for the rest of our picks in a couple weeks!

1. Geometric

(Yacht Club: Large Geometric)

(Cole & Son: Hick's Hexagon 1 & 2)

  • These prints add a modern feel to any room and can range from the simplest to the most intricate designs.

2. Texture

(Teal Grasscloth)

  • Textures add a 3-dimensional effect to a room and not to mention they're also fun to touch!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Feature Friday: Buck Naked

We’re back again for another Feature Friday! Hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about the Local Brand because it’s time for another featured company. This time around we’re talking skin care, and not just any skin care either.

The Buck Naked Soap Company has been around since 2013 and specializes in all natural, vegan beauty products. With the wave of a more natural and healthy way of living, these products are perfect for everyone. Be sure to stop by our West Palm Beach boutique to check out some of the products!

So we sat down with owner Rina and here’s what she had to say about her company.

Chelsea Lane & Company: Where did the name “Buck Naked” come from?
Buck Naked Soap Company: When we started our company we intentionally made all natural, vegan products. When we crafted our name we wanted it to be unique and fun while illustrating our values. From this, the name was born!

CL&Co: How important do you think using natural skincare products are?
BN: We believe using natural skin care is very important. Daily, we are bombarded by environmental pollutants. In most cases we don't have control over these toxins. By using natural skincare products, it's nice to know we have some control over what you put onto and into your body. On average, it takes 26 seconds for something to be absorbed by your skin and transfer to the blood stream. Also, on average, we use 20 different products on our bodies each day. This leads to potentially hundreds of chemicals leaching into your blood stream before you've had your first cup of coffee. Many of these chemicals have undesirable characteristics ranging from carcinogens to endocrine disrupters. By using natural skincare products, your body absorbs the essential fatty acids, mineral and proteins within the ingredients, and they help guard your skin rather than stripping it, making your skin less vulnerable to the environment around you. 

CL&Co: Do you plan on expanding into more than just skin and haircare?
BN: We will mostly stay within the realm of cosmetics. However, we love animals and believe they too need a little natural loving so we've developed a dog care line called Bark Naked. And because our clothes and linens touch our bodies too, are looking at developing a laundry soap!

CL&Co: Are you working on anything special for the holidays?
BN: While we don't have a specific 'holiday' line, we are launching flavored lip butters and lip scrubs for those kissable moments you want to ready your pucker for. 

CL&Co: Where do you see your company in 5 years?
BN: Five years from now, we like to have our products across Canada and the US in beautiful boutiques with a loyal clientele as well as in a few national luxury retailers with a like-minded vision of luxury for less. This said, we like to create moments and experiences with our products, not use utilitarian pieces of soap, so these local boutiques with rustic charm and local appeal is where we want to be!

Stay tuned for more Feature Fridays!

Feature Friday: Local Brand

Feature Friday is a new series we’re starting here on the Chelsea Lane & Co. blog. We carry a lot of great independent brands in store and decided it would be a good idea to showcase a little bit about them. Every month we’ll feature a few brands and include a small interview so you can get a glimpse of how the magic happens. All items mentioned in these posts are available for sale in our West Palm Beach store, so stop by and check it out!

First up on our list is Local Brand, a lifestyle and apparel company that got started right here in our backyard. We recently started carrying their products in our shop and couldn’t be more excited. So we thought there’s no better way to introduce them to everyone than to dedicate an entire post to them and their company! Find out where the inspiration came from and much more below.

We sat down with the talent behind Local Brand, Frankie, and here’s what he told us…

Chelsea Lane & Company: Tell us a little bit about Local Brand?
Local Brand: We are a Lifestyle/Apparel brand built specifically for Locals! 

CL&Co: Who/what inspired the start of the brand?
LB: My business partner and I have spent the last 10 years building companies for other people. When we launched we knew we were on to something and we have been working as hard as possible to continue the growth.

CL&Co: Why the name “Local Brand”?
LB: It’s what we are. Whether you were born here or migrated here, if you "Live like a Local", you are one.

CL&Co: Did you always know you wanted to start an apparel company?
LB: Apparel has always been a goal of mine but, as an entrepreneur, I have many business goals. Brand development is by far my favorite.

CL&Co: What motivates you to keep things going?
LB: Of course we all want to make money to take care of our families and provide a good life for the people who depend on us. But, we also want to give back to the community. We have a series of charitable events between now and Christmas. October we are raising awareness for breast cancer through “Happygram” which is a documentary made to spread knowledge about dense breast tissue and the high rate of issues that mammograms miss. November we will be donating apparel and food to the homeless. December we will be hosting a large toy drive in Lake Wales, and the toys will then be donated to children's hospitals around the state!

CL&Co: Where do you see your brand in 5 years?
LB: In 5 years, we want to be the most influential brand in the state promoting a culture and lifestyle that translates who we are.
