North Shore sources for great home accessories

When it comes to clothing, the best way to spruce up an outfit is with accessories. A chunky necklace, a vibrant scarf or even a new pair of strappy sandals can really make you look and feel great, even in clothes you bought years ago.

The same goes for home accessories. Things like wall art, accent furniture pieces, candles or something as simple as a new vase can transform a room, making it feel like you just moved into a brand new house.

Here’s a selection of North Shore spots that offer just that kind of home-brightening décor.
