As the heat index continues to rise, an oasis of modern style awaits shoppers at Abitare, a home accessories boutique located in tony Brooklyn Heights. I was lucky enough to discover this little gem recently while window shopping with my daughter. Co-owned by the talented team of Joanne Esposito and Lizzie Hand, Abitare offers decor and gift items that meld both form and function. Isn't that so Pretty*Practical?
The store is styled like my favorite kind of home - lots white (including white floors); beech wood; and pops of vibrant color! There, I was greeted by the charming Lizzie Hand and was pleasantly surprised to see such a well-edited selection at affordable prices. Of course, there were splurges too but just about anyone could leave there with something they love.
Abitare celebrates its two-year anniversary this August and has recently added a wedding registry. You can click here for the online shop as well as their blog featuring new Abitare goodies.
