Soft Surroundings

Gorgeously fluffy flokati rugs from Greece. Exotic gold fulani earrings. Afternoon cat naps in a lush repos? chaise. Decadent soie de lyons silk dupioni window treatments. Sink into your bed wrapped in dreamy bedding.
Soft Surroundings may not be modern or contemporary (except maybe that stunning flokai rug – yum!), yet the old world charm seems to call to me. This cozy online store is a peaceful feminine retreat. Soul-satisfying! You can shop their online store, of if you are in the St. Louis area, you can visit them at The Boulevard shops. View there storefront here. A special thank you to Sondi in Maine for suggesting Soft Surroundings. :)
