Lakeside Home & Gift

Friday, July 2, 2010

I had the pleasure of visiting Lakeside Home & Gift last week in Lake Oswego, Oregon. The shop's proprietors are mother-daughter team Lynne Wintermute and Caitlin Massey. They offer everything from interior design services to last minute hostess gifts. As Lynne says, their style is a bit like Anthropology mixed in with many natural textiles. Of course, that is what I loved about the floor, there was so much linen on display! From fabulous lamps by Gallery Designs, to beautiful pillows by Lacefield Designs, and tablecloths from Libeco, I must admit, I was in heaven. Here are my absolute favorites. If you are interested in anything specific, please call Lynne. As the website reads, "Stop by early for a cup of freshly brewed coffee, or in the afternoon for a chilled glass of wine. There's always something new at Lakeside." How can you beat that?

When you first walk into the shop you see this beautiful display. As Lynne shared, she loves to merchandise and it shows. I love the Trina Turk pillows combined with the blue, linen sofa.

The sofa a little closer...

Here's a closer look at the side table and the wonderful linen, handtowels.

Couldn't you just move in to this living room? I love the Chocolate Brown sofa in linen.

...and the Chocolate Brown chair.

If you prefer a warmer palette, here is a room design for you.

This chair covered in linen by Four Hands is a bestseller for Lynne. Check out the base of the chair, it is fantastic.

I love the earthy colors in this display.

There are many of these wonderful lamps in all different styles from Gallery Designs. I am now a huge fan!

Look at this precious bird pillow in linen with beads.

Some more pillows to love...

Gift items...

And although it is not linen, I think this peacock jute bag would make any shopping trip look successful.

If you are in the Portland area, you have to check out this shop! Or, just call and chat with Lynne and she can help you by phone.

Have a great week!
