Day 614's shop crush: Bungalow Classic


With all of the excitement over the Eddie Ross shopping trip, I completely forgot to tell you about the rest of the weekend in Atlanta. I spent Saturday with two fun co-workers as we hit up some of the great interior shops in town, making friends with owners, passing out business cards, and scouting for story ideas (not a bad work day, I don't think!).

One of my favorites was Bungalow Classic. I've been wanting to visit since it was published in Cottage Living, and was glad to finally get the chance. I know I've said this before, but I wanted to just move right in! And let me tell you, I would have been well accommodated. There was gorgeous upholstery (most of it linen), fabulous lighting, great case goods, plenty of interesting books and accessories, beautiful bedding, and unique antique pieces, all of it thoughtfully chosen and carefully placed. Even the little office nook for placing custom orders was adorable with its skirted linen table. See for yourself:













If you're ever in Atlanta, it's definitely worth a visit. It's in the hip Westside area of town, also home to Star Provisions, Terra Cottage (funny story about that one later), and B. Braithwaite.

I'm with Amanda - that tufted couch is awesome. And the prints. AND the lamps. I might have to take the truck with me next time I go to ATL!

I've never been... will have to add it to my ATL list. Although, every time I go- I try to cram too much in! It's hard not to!
