About

Welcome to House of Evie!  

I believe Everything Should Be Designed™. Nothing should be ugly just because that's "all that's out there."

Some people do Zumba, or play the banjo, or take a vacation to feel energized. I go on a hunt. I can often be found out-and-about in the Bay Area searching - sometimes I just "know it when I see it", other times, I have some intuition that something is on the verge of being cool. I used to just decorate my own home with my found treasures. And then I realized that friends & family might stage an intervention if I didn't cool it and start to be more selective.

But I just couldn't stand it when I would find a fantastic mid-century chair or pair of 1960's juice glasses. Friends started to get little "gifts" or phone calls, "I found the PERFECT end table for you!" I dreamed about quitting my day job to open a boutique. I imagined it down to every last detail.... the dressing rooms, the neighborhood, the letterpress business cards. And a vanity in the window - showcasing vintage treasures mixed with modern trinkets.

I never dreamed I would take House of Evie online - until the last few years, when a couple of life-changing things happened. I got laid off from my job at a design firm. I got married. I moved to Oakland.

After years of encouragement from people to do something with my interior design + decor skills and eye for discerning the "good stuff" from the junk - suddenly I had two things I needed to open House of Evie. A bit more time & space, and a lot of stuff I lovingly collected, that I'm ready to share with you. Most of all - I finally have the chance to do something with the wonderful pieces I find as I dig through my secret spots across the Bay Area and beyond!

I'm thrilled to welcome you to House of Evie - my guilty pleasure!

I'd buy some items, but it wouldn't be very profitable for either one of us. Beautiful layout of your items.
