Annie Leibovitz - Signed copies of Portraits 2005-2016 have ARRIVED!

Let the holiday gift giving begin! We just received one of the most anticipated books of the year, Annie Leibovitz: Portraits 2005-2016.

This is the photographer's follow-up to her two landmark books, Annie Leibovitz: Photographs, 1970-1990 and A Photographer's Life, 1990-2005. In this new collection, Leibovitz has captured the most influential and compelling figures of the last decade in the style that has made her one of the most beloved talents of our time. Each of the photographs documents contemporary culture with an artist's eye, wit, and an uncanny ability to personalize even the most recognizable and distinguished figures.

Each of our copies is signed by Annie and is only $89.95.


New Vinyl Floor Mats

Just in time for the fall transition, we have received a shipment of vinyl floor mats.

With new patterns and styles to choose from, there is something for everyone! Whether it's in the entry, the kitchen, the laundry room or patio, our mats are functional and fun with a pop of character to light up any room.

With the crazy wind and warmer temperatures we are having in Santa Barbara, all of us are a bit desperate for some hydrated skin. Fortunately we just received a new shipment of Goē Oil™, a 100% natural combination of 28 plant, fruit and flower oils and butters. 

Lightly scented with Monoi from Tahiti, this multipurpose, semisolid oil absorbs quickly and hydrates luxuriously. Lighter than a typical body butter, longer-lasting than a moisturizer, our formulation has a high percentage of Jojoba Oil which is not technically an oil. Instead, it is a polyunsaturated liquid wax which is similar to Sebum. Sebum is secreted by the human Sebaceous Glands to lubricate and protect the skin and hair. Jojoba Oil can be used to replicate Sebum Oil. 

Need we say more?

To Entertain

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! We love an occasion to entertain and dress our homes as we welcome our nearest and dearest to share a feast full of love and togetherness. With holiday arrivals in full swing, we have some very cool and creative pieces to wow your guests and shake up your traditional settings. 

Pop on by to check out our new linens, table top, accent pieces, and fun party favors!


We were teased by a touch of rain lat night. It was a refreshing feeling having a tease of weather in another unseasonably hot fall. While we cozied up with a cup of tea, we couldn't help but get lost in good book...and a little Pinterest! It was a fantastic way to end the weekend. Now back to crystal blue sunny skies and lofty clouds hugging the foothills of our beautiful coastline.

John Derian Book Signing and Reception

October 10th from 2:00 - 6:30pm

John Derian is a designer who transforms printed images from the past, and in doing so transports the viewer to another world. He does it with the simplest of objects - a paper weight, a glass dish, a bowl, a plate - and the simplest of techniques: decopauge. 

Each of John Derian's pieces begins with a discovery, as it did when he came upon a box of antique prints in a flea market nearly 30 years ago, of one-of-a-kind illustrations, lihographs, engravings, ephemera, and other treasures from the 18th - and 19th- century printed matter.

Now his legion of collectors and fans can experience the same pleasure with John Derian Picture Book, a curated book of 350 of his best loved images in lush, oversized format.

To pre-order a signed copy of John's book please contact the Upstairs at 805-565-1503.
