Like I do whenever I am visiting someplace new or that I have not been to in a while, I did my homework. I have found the the City Guides published on Design Sponge to be incredibly helpful. The article on Milwaukee did not disappoint and provided quite a few worthy stops. The Home Market in the city's burgeoning Third Ward was one of those. So I dragged my family along to check it out...
What a delightful shop! My husband felt it immediately, The Home Market was fully aligned with my personal style, filled with products that exude high style and sophistication, but are approachable and fun.
Products like Dash & Albert rugs,
stunning and unique lighting,
framed Hugo Guinness Prints,
textiles from Japan,
John Robshaw and Bella Notte linens,
simple, yet lovely furniture, art work, accessories and many customizable items, I could go on and on!

The Home Market also offers design services...
The shop's delightful proprietor, Kate Barrette is a Wisconsin native, University of Wisconsin-Madison grad and former Director of National Retail Sales for Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic. Her design sensibility and the store are an amalgamation of these experiences and her personality.
