To follow up on an earlier feature about P.O.S.H., Carrie was nice enough to send photos of their space so decor8 readers could take a peek inside of their Chicago store. They’ added some fun new wares to their site this afternoon too, so clicky clicky to get your shop on!

My goal is to continue featuring a few fun store tours each week for those obsessed with shopping in beautiful places, or at least, cruising them and shopping online later (what I do a lot of lately). I’ll work really hard to dig up stores that also have online shopping enabled, too. If you want to help me unearth beautiful stores, please send your suggestions to me. Many of you have been sending great suggestions, and you know who you are, so thank you!

Enter P.O.S.H.

Beautiful Stores Continues!

I have a few more beautiful stores for you today, so stay tuned (Chicago and Houston are on the list). I’m working on a project for a client, but as soon as I finish up, I’ll be back to post some more beautiful stores, tell you about an amazing art studio I found while up in Montreal, and I’ll have some beautiful gift wrap and fun ceramics for you to enjoy. Be back shortly…

Meet LoooLo [Designer Interview]

Here’s an interview that I conducted with LoooLo textiles for 2Modern. Click here to learn more about this exciting collection of eco-friendly textiles, and to meet the designer. She talks about the design process, hurdles she has had to overcome, ten things she simply cannot live without and gives us a glimpse of her studio in Montreal.

[LONDON] Hygge

If you are soon to visit giddy London, or you are lucky enough to actually live there, please stop by Hygge and report back to all of us! It looks so dreamy online, I can only imagine being there. Hygge is a lovely store located in Islington London with an obvious love of modern, clean and sophisticated design. So posh!

“The Danish word ?Hygge? conveys many things, from cosy and warm, to great food and wine, to good times with friends and family. It usually involves candlelight, comfy chairs and lots of warm smiles, but could equally describe a picnic in the sand dunes on a summer day. Hygge is more about a lifestyle and a way of thinking than anything else. We’d like everyone to have a bit more Hygge in their home.” (from the Hygge website.)

If you see something online that you would like to purchase (cha-ching!), simply email them to inquire about shipping to your part of the world. They have items posted with prices, but no shopping cart is available at this time. I love the hanging orb lanterns shown above, don’t you?

Add a little hygge to your home!
