Whether you’re dealing with an empty space or just looking for accessories that don’t feel straight out of an IKEA catalogue, decorating an apartment can be overwhelming. And if you’re anything like us, you want to blend pieces that are functional with extra touches that make your home uniquely you. Sounds complicated, right? But creating a home you love can actually be easy – even fun!

Shopping from local home decor stores is one way to find that special item while also supporting your local community. Most cities have their fair share of hidden gems and Los Angeles is no exception.
