Home and floral boutique Ink & Peat is situated on North Williams and bears the tagline ‘Organically Inspired’. A visit to the bright and airy shop proves that correct right away. Owner and floral designer, Pam Zsori, puts together beautiful collections of high design items for the home — many of which incorporate natural motifs and themes such as flowers, leaves, minerals, and sweet animals. The floral counter at the back of the shop provides the perfect balance with fresh stunning bouquets, custom floral arrangements and live plants.

A highly popular shopping destination, Ink & Peat is the sort of store that makes your friends exclaim, “I love that place!”, whenever you mention it. In fact, I arrived for my visit just before opening and found that I wasn’t the only person waiting to get inside. Within twenty minutes, the store was packed with people admiring the jewelry, ceramics, cookbooks, skincare and fragrances, pillows, throws, children’s books and toys, stationary, original art, totes, and more. Ink & Peat has long been a personal favorite and my go-to whenever I need a sure to please gift for friends or family.

Some of my favorites in the shop right now include amazing fragrances from Sage Lifestyle (you must stop in and smell the Onyx blend!), a gorgeous selection of crystals and geodes in pretty pastel shades, air plants, vegetarian cookbooks, and brightly colored necklaces from Australian line Elk.

Cheryl Humphreys

I’ve been really enjoying these works by artist Cheryl Humphreys. Sometimes it feels like so much art, fashion and general perspective has become so earnest and wholesome. It’s so refreshing to see some work that has is impeccably conceived, executed and edited, but still tongue-in-cheek. I’m such a fan! I think my favorites are from her portfolio selection called ‘Narrative’ — a lot of the pieces were in Humphreys’ California Dreaming group exhibition at Paul Loya Gallery and part of an editorial for Opening Ceremony. You can see more of Cheryl Humphreys’ work HERE and shop a bit of her amazing artwork HERE.
