This past weekend, I visited a beautiful little shop called Simply White. From the moment I entered the door, I was in design heaven! This shop is exactly my taste, and I would have literally purchased everything inside if I could have! It was filled with beautiful white dishes, tiny bird accessories, ceramic owls, and birch bark candles. I particularly liked the silver deer heads and the antique white-washed furniture. I must have circled the store five times (it’s only about 600 square feet!), taking in everything, and seeing something new each time around. The owner, Bren, is so sweet and friendly, and immediately made us feel like valued customers. It’s so important to me, in today’s economy especially, to spend my money at places where I can directly see,meet, and talk with the owners. I guess that’s why I’ve always loved markets too. There is something indescribably special about knowing directly who you are buying from. Here’s a little peak into Simply White:
I loved these flower ornaments. For only $5.99, they are such a great price, and would look amazing on a Christmas tree, or set inside a little silver vase. I love the muted blush pink of the paper flowers.
Wouldn’t it be amazing to live inside an old white home, filled with antique white painted furniture and cozy accessories? This store was seriously inspiring in terms of interior decor, and I immediately wanted to redecorate every room of the condo! Below you’ll see the matching wreath counterpart to the flower balls above. When Gabriel and I were looking to buy a sugar bowl for the kitchen, we actually purchased ours from the same line as the one pictured below. I would love to have the entire set, I think it’s so classic, and it’s surprisingly light. Oh Simply White, I’m sure I’ll be back many times when I’m in need of some inspiration!
