Gadora is always on the hunt for inspiration in snappy home-design and avant-garde clothing boutiques. My former life as an accessories editor nurtured a persnickety penchant for the finer things, though at present my champagne tastes come with a Pearl-beer budget. Catching wind of HOWL Interiors ~ Fearless Home Fashion, Gadora grabbed some girlfriends for a trip to find it. The tiny bungalow-turned-studio space, tucked just off 6th Street, was unoccupied but we peered inside to find curiosities both teensy and on a grand scale. I’d have to meet Howl’s “mad-scientist” and designer Barry Jelinski another time.
Later that day we found Jelinski’s wildly intricate coquillage mirror at Mercury. Got my noodles churning with all the things I might do with seashells, too, had I a zillion of them and the patience of a Saint. Yesterday Gadora heard word that the amazing Howl Studios Deco-esq Mirror, which has been living at By George boutique—an Austin staple for the fashionably-inclined—IS. FOR. SALE.
