I happened upon the most adorable shabby/cottage shop several weeks ago... The Purple Rose is located on Route 20 in Northboro, Massachusetts.
Just look at this faux fireplace upstairs... Ahhh, if only money were no object!
That mirror on the back wall was just gorgeous!! And I loved all the robin's egg blue in this room. It's one of my favorite colors to decorate with...
Anyone for tea and crumpets?
Confession time... I think I could easily furnish my home with items designed for children. I love the rugs and lamps and furniture and curtains that are geared toward nurseries and girls' rooms!
Now if you read the "About Us" section on The Purple Rose website, they apparently have a few 'spirits' that occupy their store (an old house)... The 'three women' who have never moved out reside in the first room to the left at the top of the stairs... Now there are two sets of stairs, so it is either this room or the robin's egg blue bedroom pictured above! I wasn't there early in the day so I did not smell the coffee!
I just loved these huge letters spelling out ART, going up one of the staircases to the second floor.
So if you find yourself in the Northboro vicinity, by all means stop by and enjoy the visual delight that is The Purple Rose! Their hours and exact location are listed on their website. And if you don't live in the area, they accept all major credit cards and Paypal through their website!!! Have fun browsing/shopping!!!
