Claire Murray

Pin It Now!

This is another one of my favorite magazines. I have every issue (it only comes out every two months.) The photography in this magazine if unbelievable!

Claire Murray is based in Nantucket and has shops mostly in New England along with a few other eastern locations. I visited her shop in Martha's Vineyard last summer when I was there and it was beautiful. She's known mostly for her hand hooked rugs, but she also has needlepoint and cross stitch kits available. She also has some beautiful birdhouses, pillows, dinnerware, apparel, etc. on her website. Here are some of my favorites:

I love her needlepoint rabbit pillows.
This bedroom reminds me of mine!

You can visit her website at http://www.clairemurray.com

My dh and I visited a Claire Murray retail shop a year ago when we were in Virginia. The hooked rugs were unbelievable.

I love her magazine and only buy it occasionally but I can't seem to part with them or tear them up. Too beautiful! I love that bird house you posted the pic of.

A few years ago, I went to the Altana Furniture Mart to a show with my DIL. I saw her rugs and they are so remarkable. I didn't want to step on them. LOL I love the birdhouse. My DH built our mail box in the form of a house. Its taken quiet a beating but it is so unique. Love your blog.
