Modern design with a pop of color is the name of the game at Design Within Reach. The brand’s Santa Monica store is located near the Third Street Promenade which means you can easily make a day out of it by following your home decor shopping with some more shopping or lunch at the promenade.
If you want to move away from the big box stores and instead fill up your home with unique pieces with a lot of charm, head to this furniture boutique in Santa Monica.

Restoration Hardware in West Hollywood isn’t a home decor store. It’s an experience. The three-level, 40,000-square-foot space features installations, the brand’s chic collection of indoor and outdoor furniture, and a rooftop park inspired by the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris. There’s also a design atelier where you can work with professional designers to design a room or your entire home. It’s impossible to leave here not feeling inspired.
Nestled in Brentwood Village, Grace Home Furnishings is filled with furniture and home accessories infused with a vibe described as East coast polish meets laid-back Southern California spirit meets Old Hollywood glamour.

And if you need some design advice, you’re definitely in good hands. Their team counts Madonna and Heiki Klum as former clients.
