Music to Charlotte Moss' Ears

I really miss the Charlotte Moss Townhouse


It was unlike any other retail experience. Stunning before you even walked through the doors, you immediately felt like you were in Charlotte's home. Or, at least, one of them.
From the pagoda door handles, to the library of vintage books to the garden out back, you FELT her touch on everything. I have kept the signature gray boxes emblazoned with the white pagoda. I keep special letters in one....out of season hats and gloves in the other.

Charlotte's books and blog are true visual stimulation....but I was delighted to happen upon her personal playlist for Itunes. These are compilations she has used in show houses or for special events where music is key to ambiance. 

So, if you'd like to channel Charlotte Moss in your own home, here's the link

Isn't that music to your ears?!

Interesting! I was there soon after it opened and I felt like it closed so soon afterwards. I was surprised, I think it was only there for a year....but it was fun walking up those crickety stairs and taking in the "Charlotte ambiance"...such an elegant and pretty one!
Tagged you today, in my post Elizabeth....all details in the post. Have a great day!

I was surprised her shop closed so quickly too and saddened by the closing. She was on 1st Dibs as well but didn't last long. Shame too it was fun seeing pieces from her personal style.

Enjoy your Thursday!

I miss the townhouse so much! I used to live a few blocks up from it and spent many hours there...

I'm so sad that I never had the opportunity to visit The Townhouse. It looks like the kind of place where one could spend hours. I have several of her books on my shelves and they have influenced my style over the years. Can't wait to check out her playlists. Thanks for pointing us to them, Elizabeth!
Happy Thursday!

Elizabeth, this would be dangerous territory for me! Stunning is the word, but the shop looks quaint and warm. Headed over to listen.
Thank you for sharing and have a nice Thursday.
