California Eclectic: San Diego Shopping Guide

Whenever my designer friends from out of town visit, they always want a list of my go-to places to shop for accessories, gifts and home decor. They'll even tell me they are sourcing for a client but I think we both know 90% of what they get is going to end up coming home with them:)

I've put together a list of three of my favorite design resources that are open to the public so that you too can pick up some unique California Eclectic items for your space. Plus: anyone who follows the directions posted today (7.26.17) on my Instagram will be entered to win a $50 gift card towards shopping destination #1 on my list: Gold Leaf in South Park.

Gold Leaf is about fifteen steps from my house and the perfect place to go if you want to be surrounded by perfectly curated, wonderfully unique items. I've purchased several things for myself and for clients here (including that lumbar pillow to the left) and am currently coveting their Los Feliz rake back wooden armchairs. 

The Los Feliz chair, displayed in the shop, is made by Four Studio, a local furniture line they carry. All the pieces have some great upholstery colors options that will work with any California Eclectic vibe you've got going on. Gold Leaf has very cool furniture, kitchen items, lighting, home decor, gifts & more. Go check it out and then tell me what you bought so I can go buy it, too. Some of my Gold Leaf picks are below:

Dutch is about twenty steps from Gold Leaf  and very tiny and wonderful. Artfully arranged in this shop are ceramics by Black Phoebe Ceramics, artwork by Janessa Goodman, furniture by Dovetails and Darts, & much more. I have a few ceramic pieces from here and have been to a couple of their events (including a fun & informative candle making workshop). Tend Living also has a couple of her amazing pieces on display inside.

Native Poppy Shop is located inside the insta-famous Communal Coffee in North Park. This is a must visit for anyone coming from out of town, and I have been known to schedule every possible meeting here because it's just a lovely place to be. Native Poppy Shop does everything from events, to custom arrangements, to build your own bouquets. They once helped me create an arrangement based on the color scheme of a room I was styling. Their arrangements are the perfect thank you gift for a well deserving client. And it goes without saying -it smells great in there:)
