Stylish Salt Lake City

After landing at the Salt Lake City airport Wednesday morning, Todd and I were excited to jump in our rental car and visit some of SLC’s hip hotspots. Well, we were in for quite a treat! Our first stop was Walls, a wonderful shop focused on unique and decorative items for the home, including modern Danish wallpaper, colorful patterned rugs and laser-cut felt lamp shades. We then were overwhelmed by the fun choices of gifts and baby goods as Blue Cockatoo! We even got to meet Sophia, the owner’s darling little 3-month-old who sure seems to have inspired a lot of the great selection of baby gifts.

At Paper Creations we found more imprintable cards, fun stationery and scrapbooking supplies than I have ever seen in one location! At Hip & Humble, I could have bought the entire store! From gorgeous bedding to yummy candles and lotions to colorful kitchenwares and hip fashion, everything was unique and wonderfully displayed. And boy, if I needed wedding invitations, there’s no better place than the Write Image - their gorgeously designed store is a paper lover’s dream!

We also drove down to Provo where we met the nicest mother-and-daughter team at Kaleidoscope. Their shop is filled with the trendiest tops, jeans, and dresses from around the country as well as must-have candles and lotions.

My heart stood still, though, when we pulled up to The Flower Basket, housed in a gorgeous turn-of-the-century Victorian. Everywhere I looked, there were the most amazing vignettes of mannequins, flowers, and gifts. The place was so airy and sunny yet filled with color and life, I was inspired to snap some photos to share:

Best of all, Cecily Ink products will find a home on the shelves of all of the cool shops I mentioned in the very near future (just as soon as I ship the orders when I return!)
