The places I've been... Cielo, Santa Fe, NM

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-pcOFT8KkM7A/TaO1dxaZx4I/AAAAAAAAE-s/M82eVnZfo3g/s1600/IMG_2431.jpg

I'm going to share a favorite shop with you this week. You might have seen some of these photos before, but it's about time for another sojourn to Santa Fe, so I am getting my shopping list ready! Come along for the ride, won't you?


Cielo Tabletop; 316 S. Guadalupe St; Santa Fe, NM 8750; 505.992.1960. There is also a bedding store down the way a bit. Click HERE for a map.

This is by far my most favorite addiction feeding shop on the planet. I spend a lot of time drooling in here. They are so gracious to let me take pictures all the time.

The last time in the store, I was able to meet the owner. Charming! 
They do carry some wonderful Yeoward crystal.

Their attention to detail is always amazing. Inspiring you to use what you have and to make purchases as necessary to augment what you have.

This is my favorite wall. Lots of cubbies filled with beautiful linens and a wonderful selection of
Kim Seybert napkin rings. And the tablecloths... well let me just say one word: heaven.

This has always been a favorite combination: Brown, blue, green, gold combined with the stellar Kim Seybert napkin ring with Swarovski crystals on the ends of the turned wood spires/beads.

Since I'm in the midst of a full-blown blue phase, I can just imagine some of these pieces finding their way home to Lubbock.

How about this blue combination?

And this is what I love the best.. their merchandising expertise shows the same element used in so many different ways and with different pieces.

I spot some turquoise!! Oh those could come home, too. I find that stores who carry a wide range of beautiful items in all price ranges tend to stay in business longer! And this place covers the gamut!!

Kim Seybert runner and fabulous pieces to accesories the table. I think the pomegranates add the perfect punch of color!

The store looks different every time I'm in there. Always refreshing and new. 

One Christmas, they had mixed very rustic elements in with their gorgeous lines of dinnerware. It was truly wonderful.

Still kicking myself for not bringing this treasure home. Driftwood. Very rustic.

Doesn't this just invite you to come in for a peek?

I had an ID 10 t error the day I spotted these darlings. The bruises that I inflict on myself because of things I do not purchase get rather large!! Nope left them in the store. Now I guess I will figure out how to make my own version. They are Kim Seybert. Gorgeous. Beaded wires, wool felt stitched leaves and red fabric covered berries which ended in gold jewelry findings.

I rarely leave without one or two of their delightful bags ready to make the journey back to Lubbock. But the memories of the things I don't bring home...., aaah so painful. I do hope that you will find yourself in Santa Fe, NM one day soon and remember to go by and visit Cielo. I promise you are in for a treat.
Linking to The Tablescaper's new Friday (Thursday evening) party - the places I've been - posts about places we've seen.. I hope you will join us!

What a wonderful shop, Marlis! My husband and I hope to drive down to New Mexico on vacation someday soon and visit Santa Fe and Taos. I'll have to put this shop on my list of places I want to see.

Ann said...

Since Santa Fe is an art capital, I'm sure the details here are fabulous. I pinned the napkin ring with the branches and holly-so stunning. I love anything made with driftwood or twigs. I've been to Santa Fe a few times and next time I will add this shop.

I really enjoyed going shopping in Santa Fe with you Marlis! What a fab store, I would be drooling too! I am embarrassed to say that I had never heard of Kim Seybert {I can hear you gasping} so I googled. Of course I fell in love with her capiz placemats, set of 4, $385! Everything in the store looks so unique, full of eye candy and dreams. Thanks for the tour,
Jenna
