Welcome to the Wanderlust Blog. We're excited to start sharing some of our favorite things with you: new inventory, fun events, interior decorating ideas, project tutorials, and more. Our philosophy here at Wanderlust is that your perfect home space is attainable, no matter your budget or experience.
We're here to help you work with what you've got, pick and choose just the right items, and DIY it (if that's your thing) so that you can create your cool, as we like to say. We want to be part of your quest to get what you need from your home, whether it's tranquility, creativity, a place to entertain, a place to unwind, or all of the above.
We'll start each month with a round-up of what's new at Wanderlust, from events, to inventory, to cool things that are happening.
Find the Caravan in August
Open Streets Minneapolis: Northeast - Sunday, August 6, 11:00am - 5:00pm
Open Streets, now in its sixth year, is a fun community event that takes place across Minneapolis communities. On August 6, Northeast residents will have the chance to walk, bike, and skate their way through the streets and get to know other members of their community just a little bit better. We love the community engagement that this event fosters, and we look forward to meeting and talking to lots of Nordeasters this Sunday! The bus will be parked on the corner of 5th St. and 13th Ave. NE.
Sociable Summer Market at Sociable Cider Werks - Saturday, August 12, 12:00pm - 5:00pm
We do love us some cider, and late summer is the perfect time to enjoy it. We'll be joining Minneapolis Craft Market at Sociable Cider Werks for their second-to-last summer market. Good food, drink, and the chance to see what the makers of Minneapolis have been working on.
Our freshest finds are industrial meets mid-century with lots of index files, filing cabinets, and metal carts. We love these items for office storage, bar carts, and plant stands. The well-worn patina of old industrial pieces helps soften the look, making it easier to introduce metal and right angles into your space without it becoming too harsh. We also love the contrast of pairing industrial pieces with items that have organic lines, like furs and animal skulls, as well as warm colors like red and brass.
