Making a house a home takes a little work, a little luck and a lot of love. Work comes in the form of painting, renovating and maintaining. Luck and love often intersect, like when you find just the right rug, or wall hanging, or little collectible that both speaks to you and tells a piece of your story.
In downtown Bellingham, the go-to place for everything related to hearth and home is Greenhouse. From your first steps through the doors on Cornwall Avenue, you’ll be delighted by cheerful displays of furniture, flowers and seasonal accessories. Everything you need to set up house can be found here.
Greenhouse has been a local fixture, nurtured through many stages of growth, since 1972 by owners Chris Foss and Foster Rose. The store is a browser’s delight, starting upstairs in the furniture department, with a wide range of sofas, chairs and dining sets, along with rugs and textiles.
The well-stocked kitchen department is renowned for its Le Crueset cookware, tons of kitchen tools and gadgets, and appliances, linens and top-end cleaning supplies. Need to set up or add to your home bar? Look no further—Greenhouse has the barware, tools and accessories you need to make and serve any beverage in style, and the books to tell you how to do it, too!
And as far as home décor goes, Greenhouse has you completely covered. Think pillows, candles, vases, table linens, throws, decorative items and so much more.
Seasonal items for Halloween and Thanksgiving are sharing space (for now) with everything Christmas. Hurry in for Halloween décor before it’s gone!
While it’s much, much better to see everything the Greenhouse has for you in person, rest assured that if you can’t make it to Bellingham or wish you had bought that wine bottle taper holder while you were at the store, you can order online!
Fall is definitely the time of year to nest, and many of us connect with the rhythms of nature by decorating our homes to reflect the seasons. Or, we simply look around and realize that our sofa pillows have been in use since the turn of the century. In either scenario, Greenhouse is Bellingham’s perfect place to freshen things up with beautiful, quality home décor you’ll love for years.
Now, if you’re like me, it’s generally not possible to walk into Greenhouse and walk out without a necessity, whether that’s a candle or a clock. I’ve had my eye on this beauty for awhile, and now it’s now hanging in my kitchen. Fabulous!
