Boutique Spotlight: Quebec & The Maritimes

Neguac, NB

It is a great little store with on-staff decorators to help homeowners create a pulled together look. The store has a range of styles from elegant to urban rustic. They carry many suppliers but I’m particularly fond of them because they carry the Glen and Jamie furniture line from Van Gogh and do a great job with it! They also have a design professional who works out of the store to help you with all your design needs.


What are people buying?  The best selling items in the store are upholstered headboards and mirrored chests.

What’s trending at Decor Haute Look? The trendiest items in the store are reclaimed wood pieces.
