Debbi’s 5 Favorite Home Design Shops, From Luxury to Affordable

I am always inspired by the perfectly curated lobby’s and suites in the resorts and vacation rentals we visit, both here and abroad.  As I enter our hotel room or vacation rental, my eye scans from left to right, and back again, taking in every detail. I appreciate how each space, each table top, the art work, mini -bar and the bathroom including the sink top, shower and bathtub, are all so meticulously designed and every detail is considered, from the forks and knives to the accessories, baskets, books, artifacts, wooden bowls, mirrors, picture frames, art, lamps, and more. The level of attention to detail is incredible and it creates a visually pleasing experience. I’m particularly obsessed with design and I admire how each curated detail, even down to the sparkling water bottle, welcome basket, and key chain, adds to the overall aesthetic.

If you’re looking for shops that offer similar curated experiences, here are five options that range in price from the most expensive to more affordable options. Remember, luxury can be affordable, if you know where to look:

SOBU on College Ave, Oakland • Beautiful wood artifacts —wall art, table art to beautiful sofas, tables and chairs, for both indoor and out.

RH | Restoration Hardware • Home + Accessories.

West Elm • Curated Home Furnishings + Select Kitchenware

World Market • A great selection of wooden bowls, accessories, and home goods.

Home Goods • As the name states; deeply discounted. So many options from sheets and towels to vases and lamps.

Happy shopping and I hope you find the perfect curated pieces that inspire you! Debbi
