Shop Like a Design Blogger: Inglenook Decor

This week I'm excited to have Maureen, the proprietor of Inglenook Decor, a lovely e-boutique, and author of the equally lovely blog Ingle Talk that I've been following since their launch last year. Maureen has recently moved to Austin, which has got to be one of my most favorite cities on earth (and where I spent 3 years in law school incidentally). Austin is, unquestionably, a very, very cool town with a ton of very, very cool boutiques and shops -- a few of which Maureen has been so generous as to share with us today. I'm actually going to Austin this weekend for a bachelorette party and I hope to squeeze in some serious shopping time while I'm there.

Awww! I am so honored that I got invited by the lovely and talented Averill to participate in this series. Hi all, this is Maureen of the online shop, The Inglenook Decor & my blog and occasional musings, Ingle Talk. I am in love with my newly adopted city, Austin. I've only lived here for less than a year & I'm sure I haven't seen everything. I sort of shop of the beaten path, looking for only one-of-a-kind stuff and the most unique items. I still peruse the Pottery Barns & West Elms of this world {and adore Restoration Hardware & Ballard Designs}, but when I'm out and about in the fascinating streets of this lovely town, the following are my must-go-to shops:

1. Uncommon Objects If you're visiting Austin, you absolutely must check this shop out! It's vintage heaven & when they named the store, Uncommon Objects, they weren't kidding. It's in the heart of So Co {South Congress} amidst other lovely shops, restaurants and food trailers. The shop truly epitomizes the towns slogan, "Keep Austin Weird." We just did a photo shoot there this week, and the owner and their creative stylists and associates couldn't be more helpful and may I add, so, so talented! Don't know what to do with your found objects? You'll find amazing ideas and vignettes here.

2. Whit Hanks Antiques This shop boasts of more than 10 antique dealers like Negrel Antiques, Antique Swan and Pat Monroe Antiques. If you're looking for the best of European antique case goods then this is the place to go. It's in an area of the city called Clarksville which is on West 6th just right across the Whole Foods flagship. When you get hungry, just hop on over to Z Tejas, a restaurant built around large oak trees and for some pastries {and a cafe au lait of course!}, the charming Sweetish Hill Bakery.

3. Fortney's Home Another favorite spot is Fortney's Home, also in the Clarksville area. More treasures to find here, inside and outside of the store. It's bigger than you think if you look at it from the outside. With more amazing finds on the second floor, garden treasures in their courtyard and more in their back house, your eyes will have a feast!

4. Mercury Design Studio Let's move to the fancier part of town, shall we? Boutiques and restaurants galore line the second street district and one of my absolute favorite shops is here, Mercury Design Studio. They carry Thomas Paul items, Roost Decor and the like. They also have custom vintage chairs and case goods they re-purposed and refinished themselves.

5. The Container Store I know, I know, it's a bit weird that I suddenly went mainstream as far as store choices. There are more vintage and unique shops in Austin of course but the list above are places I absolutely check out on a regular basis. Now, The Container Store, a girl must have staples right and one can never have enough storage or organization, for that matter. So, when I need this fix, I quickly go to this store which is located in the Arboretum area off of 183. Here are some items I have my eye on right now.

Thanks again Averill for letting me participate in this series. Design bloggers abound and each has a unique take on the world of decorating and design. I am truly honored to be a part of this amazing group!

On a far more serious note, I'd like to extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends (and especially her husband and two young children) of Marija Stephens of Holding Court, who died in a car accident just days ago. Marija was one of my most favorite voices in the design blogosphere (not only was she an incredibly talented designer, but she was a wonderful writer as well). While we never had the opportunity to meet in person, I nevertheless considered her a friend and kindred spirit as an attorney cum designer. My thoughts and prayers are with those whom she left behind far, far too early.
