When it comes to creating a home you love, it’s all about the details. Because the past several years have seen us spending more time indoors (and now, even with mask mandates lifting, have solidified our enduring love of interiors), I’ve realized how important it is that my home evokes a calm and cozy energy. I want to ensure the space that I curate and envision makes me feel like I’m entering a personal sanctuary—and welcome others in with love and comfort. To that end, finding the best home décor shops online has been my most recent passion.
We recently moved into a new house that has a completely different, mid-century vibe. I’ve been scouring the web for pieces that feel right for our new space, and in the process have discovered countless unique online shops that have made it onto my list of new faves. For me, furniture and home accessories from sources that are slightly off the beaten path feel extra special—every piece that enters our home has a story behind it.
Life has been busy lately, and I haven’t been able to spend my weekends at estate sales or exploring local boutiques. Solution? I’ve tried to shop small and support home décor shops online shops instead. I’ve found some real gems that I never knew about—but now, I can’t stop sharing them with everyone. After you get to the end of this article, I imagine the same will be true for you, too.
