Esty Shops for Cool Prints

Etsy is one of my favorite destinations for unique pieces for my home and closet, whether handmade or vintage. The site is like shopping from the world's best flea markets for literally anything you can think of. I love knowing that I am supporting artisans and creatives with every purchase I make. There are quite a few prints and photographs around my home that I have picked up over the years, and no matter where we have lived, those pieces make it feel like home.


Words and illustrations can be found in almost every room of our home as reminders of our values, inspirations, and motivations. Click over to Sarah & Bendrix, Anek, Leigh Viner, The Aestate, and Printabold for some cool fashion watercolor, hand-calligraphed quotes, and other digital prints. 


Whether you need art for the bathroom, kitchen, kids room, or office, these photographs evoke a sense of calm inspiration; a mini-getaway for every passing glance. Some shops I love to peruse for travel photography or still life shots are Scarlett Ella, Georgianna Lane, Lupen Grainne, and Lila + Lola.

Are there any Etsy shops you love to shop for home decor? Please do share in the comments below, or tweet me @nmcaruso.

I was born in Manhattan to two native New Yorkers who met working in the Garment Industry. Fashion was the family business. Suburban Connecticut is where I grew up and often daydreamed about someday attending New York Fashion Week.

When I was in college studying Communication & Media, I met the man of my dreams. We married nearly one year after our first date, and have been adventuring together ever since. While we moved around the country for his job, I freelanced as a makeup artist, worked in retail, and blogged about style & beauty as a creative outlet. 

Moving back to New York led to serendipitously working for two major fashion houses, where I learned the ins and outs of the industry, and attended Fashion Week both backstage and in the tents. Soon after, Verily Magazine brought me on as Beauty Editor, which was my dream job. It combined all of my passions and hobbies into one, and granted me a deeper understanding of print and digital media. One year after that, I had my daughter and experienced true fulfillment in motherhood. 

Everywhere I have traveled, I have met incredible women who inspired me to be the best version of myself; to wake up every day feeling confident and ready to Carpe Diem. I want to inspire women to explore their feminine genius by investing in their self-worth. This lifestyle blog is the place where I can share my worldview, my experiences, and my tips and tricks to live a more fulfilling life, which include expert style and beauty advice, tips for healthy living, and reflections on marriage and motherhood.
