OUR SIMPLE STORY
The idea behind The Bourgeois Pig was simple: combine and share the things we love.
We love the forgotten beauty of vinyl album cover art and that warm vinyl sound. Music that speaks to the soul. Rainy days and the smell after it rains. Rainbow. Ristretto. The Italian way. Thick foam on a caffe latte. Inspirational tattoos. Vanilla smoothie. Singing loudly and a little craziness. The sound of crashing waves. The smell of coconut sunscreen. The movie Hair and The Bridges of Madison County or any movie with Meryl Streep. The perfect Raspberry Martini. Nirvana. Abba. Tchaikovsky. The Woodstock. It would be a good idea. Gypsy songs. The little green fairy. Setting a spider free outside rather than smashing it. Warm hands. Mozzarella and Pesto Toast. Chilled Chardonnay. Childhood photos. The kind you have to scan or snap to get online. Vintage frames. Comfy pillows. The first snow and warm blankets for winter.A big tight hug from an old friend. Slipping on your favorite wool sweater on Sunday morning. Oh, those lazy Sundays. Birthday cakes. Planning a party. California. Marakesh. New York City. Greece. Italy. Paris. Prague. After all, Prague is always a good idea. Seeing the word homemade on a menu. The word Love. The word Namaste. Rubbing a Buddha’s belly. Pistacio cocktails and the taste of freshly squeezed lemon in Gin & Tonic. Humanity. Animals. Living creatures. Waterfalls. Yoga. The sound effect of a Buddhist ritual gong. The smell of old books. Old handwritten postcards. Art galleries. Paintings. Being inspired and moved. Freedom. Farmer’s Markets. Fresh bread. Sunflowers. Hummus and Pita. Sailboats, big white sail raised over blue clear sky. Eclectic furniture. Everything 70’s and 80’s. Taking pictures on Instagram. Authenticity. Elderflower lemonade. A candle lit room. Reconnecting with people after many years apart. Seeing people in the moment and genuinely happy. Coexistence. Equality. Sharing table. Quiet dishwashers. Growing plants or flowers. Leaving the doors open all day. Hearing kids making each other laugh. Being able to speak in another language. The tiny window seat. Funny quotes. The Italian olives picked by hand. Dark chocolate with extract of chilli. New jeans that fit perfectly. Be at peace. Feeling comfortable in your skin. When someone says we helped them to feel home.
