Home is in the details. The polished wooden picture frames on your mantel, the first duvet you bought as a couple, throw pillows on the couch that tie the whole living room together—a new house doesn’t become a home until you fill it in with these decorative details. Some you inherit from family or previous residences, but some you’ll need to find specially to suit your new rooms. In those cases, we have a few favorite stores we rely on when we’re looking for something specific.
Homegoods – From throws and pillows to decorative accents, Homegoods is the best place to find the finishing touches that take a room from merely furnished to tastefully decorated.
Room + Board Outlet – When we’re starting from scratch on a room and need some main pieces to set the stage, we turn to Room + Board Outlet for their stylish selection of indoor and outdoor furniture.
Sur la Table – For quality cook and bakeware so handsome it can double as décor, we go to Sur la Table. There’s no reason you shouldn’t outfit yourself like a professional chef just because your specialties are Hot Dish and blueberry muffins.
Crate and Barrel – For all your kitchen furnishings not involved in the actual cooking process, there’s no better place than Crate and Barrel. Their beautiful dining collections make any room feel both classy and inviting.
Patina – Local home accessories boutique Patina is a treasure trove of quirky and unique pieces that will give your home personality and character to reflect your own.
Sometimes you just can’t find that perfect piece in the store. When we reach a dead end with bricks-and-mortar shopping, we turn to our favorite online home furnishing and decor retailers: Wayfair, Joss and Main, and One Kings Lane.
