VanEch Studio- Occoquan, Virginia

Here and About-
Every once in awhile a new store
 opens locally that hits the mark for me…
a mix of high-style, innovative presentation,
 vintage love and modern flair.
Then add a large dose of ingenuity
and some frugal repurposing.
Spot on!!

Van Ech Design Studio

I met Niki when I visited her shop.
 She has over 20 years of design services
 that she brings to the support
of her clients and shop visitors.
Right now a mixture of Fall-
 with a touch of Christmas is in the shop.

Owner Niki VanEch

 in the chalk paint furniture revivals

Vintage love right here on the table

Floral designs are done locally
 by a very talented florist-
using vintage containers
 and an interesting mix of design elements.

And though it was a dreary late afternoon 
with just my cell phone camera-
 I think you can get the picture that this is a fun stop -
if you are looking for a new Here and About.

If you are making a trip there-
maybe call to check on hours.

Though these are both a bit blurry in my hurry-
 the greens and lights are certainly a welcome beacon-
 to come on in and check us out.
