Go Local with Interior Design: A Shopper’s Guide

Go Local with Interior Design: A Shopper’s Guide

One of the best things about moving into a new home is being able to put your own personal style stamp on the property. And while we love a good staple piece from larger retailers and well-known-chains, we really live for the moments you find something from a local shop, artist or designer. From accent pieces and planters, to handmade throws and prints, it’s easy to infuse a little Fort Lauderdale love into the mix.


Ann's Florist Las Olas

Ann’s Florist and Coffee Shop 

This little gem on Las Olas is home to more than just some of the best java and flowers (both of which are perfected here). Think ornate décor pieces including specialty candles and holders, photo frames, antique mirrors, kitchen accessories that make a statement, literally, and more. Pre-made terrariums also steal the scene and require little day-to-day maintenance, adding a touch of green without the need of a green thumb.


The Goods Flagler Village

The GOODS Vendor Market

The last Saturday of each month (from 6 – 11 p.m.), local artists and talent come out and put their work on display during the monthly FAT Village Art Walk. It’s the perfect opportunity to pick up a memento that will brighten any home and be a natural conversation starter. The vendor selection varies month-to-month, so be sure to check out the line up online before heading over. At the very least, head over for the food trucks and cocktails, but we’re sure you’ll find a perfect little something to take home with you.


Design Center

Broward Design Center

This go-to shop on Sunrise prides itself on being “designed to be different with something for everybody.” The selection rotates on a regular basis offering global creations curated by a local team. From garden sculptures, planters, outdoor furniture and interior pieces all with a unique twist, Broward Design Center takes the hard part out of sourcing international items. Insider’s Tip: if you fall in love with something, don’t be shy to negotiate. The team is looking to make room for new pieces, which means they are open to working with you to make way for upcoming arrivals.


In addition to these picks, the South Florida Swap Shop is another terrific spot if you aren’t afraid to put a little elbow grease into decor projects, but make sure you are fueled up on coffee before you go!

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
