Batman, a Bomb, and Great Decor

During a fortunate channel surfing experience this weekend the powers of Syd & Harper came across another dynamic duo, Batman and Robin.  To say we found the following clip HILARIOUS would be an understatement.  But after we regained our composure and watched it for the third time, we also found ourselves admiring some of the decor in the upstairs pad above the saloon.  Check it out during the beginning of the video and then laugh hysterically as Adam West tries to to rid himself of a bomb... it's more difficult than one may think.

Anthropologie's Buyer, Keith Johnson

As many people have found out through his television show, Man Shops Globe, Keith Johnson is the buyer for Anthropologie.  In this video you get a little insight into his thought process when purchasing items for the various Anthropologie stores across the country.  His idea of buying things that he would buy for his own home is something that we've been doing since we started Syd & Harper.  Everything that we sell we would just assume keep for ourselves if nobody else finds a use for it.  We believe that following this buying principle creates a unique collection that, at the same time, works well together as a whole.  It's a creative process and an art form that is getting more recognition everyday and we love being part of it :)  Enjoy the video!

What is Industrial Style....

Clean...


Sturdy...



Old School...



Unique...


These are just a few images that inspire us and define what industrial style is.  These items will last forever and give your home a look that isn't like your average run of the mill decor.   We are a bit quirky, we like to have fun and we definitely don't take ourselves too seriously.  Industrial style definitely fits our personality, how about you??
