chicago's finest: sprout home

DSC02393

our trip to chicago was amazing. despite some cruddy weather we were so excited to experience a whole new city full of wonderful people and wonderful design. for me, chicago was about finally getting to see sprout home. i've always admired shop owners, ever since i was little i remember thinking it would be the coolest thing to own my own store. it's not an easy thing to pull off a successful store, but sprout home's tara heibel (and her fabulous staff and dog, grifter) have done that in spades. tara met us for breakfast on friday and gave us a lift over to sprout in bucktown. for me it felt like going home, but to a home that was way cooler than anything i could ever create. not only was the store beautiful (tara designed it herself) but the products were well edited and the plants (the store is also a nursery) were gorgeous and gave the store a homey, fresh feeling. tara believes and supporting independent designers and beautiful design and her store has become a beacon of great design because of it. so click here for the full photo tour of sprout home. thanks so much to tara and her crew for letting ac and i hang out at the shop (and for renewing my love of succulents)!

It is awesome just to see something close to home. I now am going to have to drive up there some weekend!

Especially for those little Jade plants!

this is my favorite home store in chicago! the first time i set foot in sprout home i wanted to live in a space exactly like it. they have amazing plants for good prices too! one note though - they aren't in bucktown - the neighborhood is actually the ukranian village.
