I help make a house a home. I can take the vision for your home and make it reality by curating beautiful pieces that fit your unique style.

What inspired you to start your business?
I’ve wanted to start this business since I was 15 years old. I’m a very tactile person. I love fabrics and color and pairing things together to tell a story. An extension of my own personal love of home decor. It just really excites me!

I’m an interior designer and my office is here in the shop. I’m here, accessible, in the shop, helping you make those important decisions about your home.

Yes! Our official grand opening is planned for tomorrow, Sat., Feb. 18, which happens to coincide with National Wine Day. Then next month, we’re hosting a Pillow Party sale from March 23-25, with 20% off pillows, and April will see the unveiling of our new workshop room.

What is the most important thing you want people to know about you/your business?
I want to be that cute little corner store in the neighborhood, intentionally curated with items you won’t find elsewhere, showcasing local artists, one-of-a-kinds, great place to find your treasures. That place that you must take your out-of-town guests!
