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.

Meus

I love this amazing, new to me shop, Meus. There are so many lovely little things that make sweet gifts for yourself or loved ones. Mirachelle carries wonderful designers, like Claire Ginn ceramics, jewels from Seaworthy and Melissa De La Fuente, Cainnon hand-carved combs, clothing from Pippa Romana and Ace & Jig, dishes and ring cones from Bailey Doesn’t Bark, leather goods from All Hands, canvas bags by Nicole Vannucchi and a lot more. I was also so happy to see my favorite whipped seashore honey sold by the jar and in an amazing little gift box with beautiful ceramics, tea, linen and a serving board — such a sweet idea! Here are some of my faves below. More HERE.

Alder & Co.

I love the new things rolling in for spring at Alder & Co. Some of my spring faves are the white cotton slip (so perfect for hot summer nights to come!), the indigo wood block dress, the navy sleeveless dress, the black denim jeans, the sweet Japanese overalls and the white nightshirt. I’m also still very much in love my bday bottle of Cardinal perfume and all the linen things. If you’re in Portland, stop by Alder & Co. at 616 SW 12th Ave. More HERE.
