Not So Plain Interiors

IMG_4657.jpg

Sometimes, the unexpected happens and you find a true diamond in the rough! I can't tell you how thrilled I was to find this little giftshop in Plain City, Ohio. And let me tell you, the home interiors here were FAR from plain! 

Being on a family vacation for our wonderful 4th of July weekend in Ohio, I did not initially expect to find great shopping (I had never been to the state, and made a quick assumption based on all the farms and such). Boy, was I in for a great surprise!

Every arrangement, all the detail, had me swooning! What I expected to be a quick little walk through a backwoods-country gift shop after brunch, very quickly turned into an hour (maybe more) of oooh-ing and ahhh-ing over every little nook and cranny.

There were green-lattice patterned urns, ikat and aztek needlepoint throw pillows that spoke to my wanderlust, whimsical weiner dog bookends, chambray and gold-leaf lamps, paintings, chevron, convex mirrors, kantha quilts - I could go on for days! I was in heaven in Ohio, of all places! Just goes to show, you never know what surprises can come when you least expect them.

Here are some homewares I love, inspired by my not-so-Plain City, Ohio experience. Enjoy!
