fun local home finds –

NOTE- This blog post was written when this blog was known as gracieandjess.com ~

Here’s some fun home décor finds to put some newness into your home! Which is something I think we are all feeling. Especially during a pandemic!

Casa Alma – One of our favourite local home decor shops. If you’re looking for timeless, quality furniture this is the place! Here’s what we are loving.

Gatsby Cost Rack – Loving the natural design of this rack. It’s also very functional in small spaces & it would be kid friendly. All while being something being beautiful to look at, rather than typical coat racks which can be an eyesore.

Lava Mirror – How cute is this mirror? We love adding mirrors into wall spaces. Especially ones with detail to create interest! There’s nothing like adding in a costal, bohemian look into your home. Neutrals generally mesh well with other styles / colours.

Emilia Chair – This chair also comes in a gorgeous blush pink, FYI. Overall we love the simplistic design of this chair! It would work well in any space & we are suckers for a good chair. It can be a nice reading chair if you’re trying to have some peace & quiet in the midst of life with kids or husbands. Is that even possible? Regardless of what life stage you’re in, investing in pieces you love for your home is always a good idea!

Cheetah Cushion – Don’t be afraid to add a fun pop of colour into your home. A great way to ease into colour ( if it makes you nervous ) is by adding some colourful accent pillows like this cheetah one!

Kira Rug – We are both huge fans of a vintage rug. It instantly makes any space pop! It’s also a great way to add some warmth & texture to a living room, kitchen, or bedroom. . . Go rug crazy! We’ve also been known to layer our rugs. What? Yup, it’s totally a thing!

Hibi Levender Incense Box – Here’s a great way to add something freshness into your home! We’re loving the lavender scent for a calming home vibe. But you can’t really go wrong with any of their scents as they are more on the natural side and we all know that natural scents seem to please the senses rather than synthetic scents. Have a friend who loves pretty smells? This would also make a cute gift!

Alpaca Wall Decor – Looking for something quirky to go on your wall? Don’t be afraid to add a random photo in your home. It totally makes a statement but we guarantee it will make you smile!


Dane & Jute – Is another local favourite of ours, that you should totally checkout! Located on the main street in Port Hope, hit them up if you are looking for gorgeous rugs or flooring. This would be our first recommendation! There’s so much to choose from & their shop is full of inspiration. If you’re local or local enough we recommend for you to visit this shop in person. ( 94 Walton St. Port Hope )


Burrow – Gracie knows the owner! This is a shop you want to follow on social media (@burrowhome). They not only offer incredible home inspo but you can purchase these gorgeous pieces for your home!

Now that we’ve been cooped up in our homes for so long, have you been noticing that you want to re-do/re-paint/re-buy everything? Now, more than ever, we should be staying away from Ikea, Wayfair and Walmart and spending our dollars at small retailers who need our money!

Happy Shopping!
Gracie + Jess
