A pallet is a collection of color, texture & pattern.  This is the case with ones wardrobe as well as their interior space - in the form of fabrics & finishes, wall & floor coverings, furnishings & decorative items chosen to complete the aesthetic.

A new Interior decor, furnishings and unique gifts boutique opened this past May in Oak Park.  After completion of her Tudor style home renovation, River Forest resident Barbara Bernick wanted to give the community resources to get creative with their own homes.  She has a belief that "people are forever looking to update their living spaces - with a small object on a shelf or an entire room or house renovation project."

This shop has a gallery feel to it, and supports local companies such as Gold Leaf Designs, Strand Design, and other made in America manufacturers.  UPDATE offer free in store consults, and off - site visits for a nominal fee, with the goal of individualizing each client's experience and needs.  I am a bit crazed for the Mongolian fur ottoman, and the super cool pillows.  Holiday decorative pieces are sure to move fast; one thing to look forward to with the cold already upon us.
