Let’s Go Local: 5 Fantastic Home Decor Shops

We are excited to introduce our new blog series: Let’s Go Local!

There are so many wonderful local businesses in the Spring Lake, Spruce Grove and Stony Plain area, and as a community that supports them, we want to start highlighting them for YOU, our readers. From shops and restaurants to wellness services, entertainment, and family activities, we are will be sharing our top picks in the coming months. Supporting local businesses is so important to helping a community thrive. We hope that through spreading the word on some of our favourite spots, we’ll help you discover what makes Parkland County (and beyond) such a special place to live.

First up: Home Decor. The SLR team is deep into the design process for our 2018 builds, and we LOVE talking all things decor. Whether you are renovating, thinking of sprucing up your home for the holidays, or on the hunt for gift ideas, these 5 local home decor shops are an excellent source of inspiration.

Whimsical Vintage Creations

Described as “an amazing gem in Stony Plain”, “unique and charming”, and “my favourite store ever” by customers, this beautiful shop features a variety of furniture and home decor pieces. Owner Kyla Tetley also offers sign making and other classes — a great group activity (and gift idea)! If you love browsing vintage-inspired items in a welcoming, elegant space, Whimsical Vintage Creations is a must-visit destination.

Reside Furnishings

Reside is a bit further afield — with locations in west and south Edmonton — but it’s such a phenomenal furniture store, we had to share it here! This family-run business has been around since 1978 (formerly known as Leather Elite) and features a gorgeous selection of modern furnishings. Many of its pieces are made with reclaimed and sustainable materials like wrought iron or solid wood, and you’ll find everything from bedroom sets to dining tables to leather sectionals. Reside prides itself on its relationships with customers, so you can expect excellent service that has that personal touch.

West Edmonton location: 10434 Mayfield Rd NW

Grove Decorating Centre ~ Benjamin Moore

Known for producing the highest-quality paints and finishes in the industry, Benjamin Moore is a favourite among interior designers, including us at SLR! (Our newest home for sale, The Lakewood, features Paper White on the walls.) Grove Decorating Centre in Spruce Grove is the company’s local retailer, and the place to go when choosing paint colours. Honing in on the right palette for your home build or reno can be intimidating for anyone, so we recommend taking samples home and trying them out (be sure to notice the variation at different times of day!) before committing. The store’s helpful staff is on hand to answer any questions and help guide you in the right direction. 

 The Barn Owl

Part country decor, part woodworking/craft classes, The Barn Owl is one of Stony Plain’s most unique businesses. Customers rave about the decorative treasures, friendly staff, and peaceful environment. You can’t help but feel happy approaching the bright red exterior, and once inside, you’re immersed in a cozy world filled with charming pieces designed to being character to your home. A perfect stop on a weekend afternoon, or for a craft class with friends. (Check out their Everyday Wreath Classes offered throughout December!)

Luxury Blinds

With more than 400 fabrics and styles to choose from, Luxury Blinds offers residents of the Spruce Grove area (and beyond) an amazing selection of blinds and more than 20 years of experience. 

At Spring Lake Ranch, one of of our trademarks is big beautiful windows that show off lake views! So we understand the importance of “the right” shade or blind to maximize all that natural light. Luxury Blinds does free in-home consultations, so you can have a professional help determine the best choice for your windows, style, and budget. The world of blinds has evolved SO much over the last decade — it’s really helpful to have experts break down all the options and share their expertise!
