"Love where you live" is the favorite saying of
-->Joan Osofsky of Hammertown Barn, the popular lifestyle stores in New York and Massachusetts. Have you been there?
Shopkeepers are excellent decorators. You can get so many ideas from seeing what they choose to put in their stores, and how they arrange it. A store that sells home furnishings often offers design services too.
