3 Hot Home Shops You Have to Visit
Because a couple new pillows can change everything
Here’s the secret to a stylish home: Fill it with unique and luxurious little touches that reflect your personality, not the mood of a West Elm catalog. To help you with that, here are three new home boutiques that specialize in everything from the small touches (fresh throw pillows make a huge difference) to major overhauls (let’s redo the bathroom in marble and mirror!). And remember: Even if you don’t buy, these spots are worth a visit to steal--er, be inspired by--their beautiful vignettes.
Pop Comfort: Consort Design
Decorator Mat Sanders and Brandon Quattrone have a high-end design firm called Consort that decorates homes for celebrities like Jessica Alba. Their boutique is filled with a mix of Italian antiques, brass lighting and colorful upholstered pieces. The back room is a must, full of swank, giftable items including copper mugs for Moscow mules, ceramics and gold-dipped pitchers.

Lofty Luxe: H.D. Buttercup DTLA
Two floors of a converted warehouse hold the same eclectic edit of furniture and home accessories you’ve come to love at the brand’s Culver City location but with an emphasis on smaller scale and more affordable pieces suitable for the edgy DTLA crew. We especially love the rainbow of velvet pillows dotted throughout the space.

Dream Marble: Waterworks
A sprawling new showroom devoted to everything to make a showplace bath or kitchen, this is where to scope out everything from your gut renovation to a set of plush bouclé towels. Don’t miss the bath rugs, Belgian linen table runners and concrete bath accessories.
