When given the opportunity to visit and speak with the owner of this charming little store on Abbot Kinney, I was ecstatic. For one thing, it sits at the end of one of my favorite shopping blocks, just a stone's throw away from my own house. And for another, I was genuinely curious to learn about Scandinavian culture, something I admittedly knew very little about.
Such intricately detailed pieces, including this ostrich feathered skirt and handbag, both by Malene Birger, and both available at Huset online here and here.
The dinner and glassware had me swooning, while I simply could not take my eyes off of these two little guys, staring me down from a shelf full of goodies.
Turns out they're called "Mood Birds" and their tiny heads can be turned or tilted in several different directions to express any mood from happy to sad, to curious and alert. Hands-down, my favorite item in the shop. (Get them here at Huset-shop.com!) A-DOR-able.
The rest of this brightly lit and colorful store offers an array of furniture, gifts, clothing and accessories, not to mention, ridiculously cute and modern kid wear and toys.
It definitely won't be my last visit... But until then, I'll just obsess over my favorite looks at Huset online and try my best to curb my new Swedish appetite.
