I admit that I am a shopaholic when it comes to home decor. I am notorious for coming home with a new lamp every now and again and I love buying pillows because they can completely transform a room without spending a lot of money.
I shop online for clients a lot, but also scour my local home stores for goodies too. Here is a list of my favorite shops in Northern VA. What are yours? Local folks, please add to my list and share with everyone!
1.HomeGoods— this home decor emporium is a treasure chest! From rugs, to unique furniture finds, pillows, accessories and more, I find A LOT here and many times at a price well below high end shops. www.homegoods.com
2.Anthropologie— known for its vintage clothing and unique home furniture and accessories, Anthropologie is a great resource for all things pretty. From unique bowls, vintage hardware, candles, and accessories, I usually walk out of this store with something cool in hand. Check out www.anthropologie.com for furniture items too.
3. Lucketts Antique Store— this old local favorite is chock full of antiques and unique finds. Best for white washed and shabby chic dressers, handmade tables, cool chairs, and more. So much eye candy here! www.luckettstore.com
4. Bella Villa Antique Shop— Don’t drive too fast on Rt. 50, you may just pass this stone antique store. They have beautiful antique and shabby chic furniture. Love their upholstered headboards and beds, and best of all, I haven’t been able to find better prices. They have quality pieces at affordable prices and the staff is very friendly. www.bellavillashop.com
5. TJMaxx & Marshalls– Much like HomeGoods, TJMaxx and Marshalls are fantastic when shopping for accessories, picture frames and pillows. It’s “hit or miss” with these stores, so you have to visit often.
6. Zazu– Located in Ashburn, VA, Zazu has some fun home accessories and entertaining items. I’ve also found some very interesting and unique large mirrors here. www.shopzazu.com
