Atelier Gray

November 15, 2013

Come on in and take a look around Atelier Gray.

Vintage French butcher shop display, complete with meat hooks, here used as a bar!

Sylvia has a regular supply of vintage art, they go pretty quickly.

Alex Marshall, beautiful handmade ceramics.

A beautiful display of handmade jewelry by Tama Star of Morro Bay.

Stunning vintage turquoise teardrop glass chandelier.

Block printed scarves, hats and table linens from Halo & Swan of Pt. Reyes.

I had to have one of these purses.

Antique Italian chair with caned domed hood.

 Vintage game boards make one of a kind totes.

A set of animal hide chairs.

Sylvia adores whimsey, and makes sure her shop has a lot of it!

A large pumpkin made from Napa wine barrels.

I arrived the day Beth of Opus Bloom was bringing in a new batch of succulent pumpkins!

There's another new store in town, right across the street from The Botanist, and another reason to visit pretty downtown Los Altos.  Sylvia Gray opened her new shop Atelier Gray on State Street this summer to the delight of her long time faithful customers.  Los Altans will remember Sylvia from Cottage Green, the little shop across from Safeway, now Bumble.  Sylvia focuses on one of a kind furniture, vintage finds from France and handmade works from local California artisans.  I have to pop by each time I'm downtown, her vignettes are always beautiful and her style, livable and whimsical.  Plus she's lovely and knows the story behind every unique piece she carries.

Over the next few months I'll be taking you to a few more shops in town.  
Next week we'll walk a half block down the street and visit my local yarn shop.
Happy Shopping!

  1. I LOVE it , too--she put together a little assemblage for my sunroom coffee table that's perfection.

  2. I see you have some new shops! How nice for Los Altos!

  3. I have been reading your knitting blog for ever from London - you make such gorgeous things! And I was in Los Altos a few weeks and visited what, I assume, must be your local yarn store as well as the Makery opposite - such loveliness in both places! I'll be back in February next year and I'll definitely find some time out of the office to make a detour :)
