Detroit Home Décor This May: Another Reason & Season to Shop Small

Detroit Home Décor Shops are Beauty, Grace, Style, and Sustainability!


Say “Hey!” to Spring and Summer colors & designs. Detroit home decor is hard to resist. What makes home decor shops in Detroit so special? They make the most of their resources by supporting local artists as well as using materials that are right here in the centerpiece. Cherish the uniqueness and all the items handmade with love that complements the naturalness of the city. The holidays were a wonderful time to check out all the shops that were still swimming through the whirlpool that was the worldwide pandemic.

Detroitisit gathered a list of Detroit home decor shops that are sustainable and essentially reflect the new life that summer presents us with. You may be shopping for something “big” for your home, but you’ll still be doing it right by shopping small.


Nest Detroit Mother's day gift ideas Facebook



The birdsong is strong this time of year and reminds us of how our senses help us be more present. See what is “nesting” in the heart of Detroit. Nest is an eclectic home goods boutique brought to Detroit by the brother-sister duo behind City Bird next door, Nest features accessible design, with a focus on gifts (not too late for mom!) and home goods. Definitely check out their shop if you’re into the modern decor and geometric shapes. Why not add more color to summer with their selection of triangle stained-glass suncatchers? Click HERE to shop and peruse the “Living” drop-down for decor. Located at 460 W. Canfield St. Detroit, MI 48201.



Remnants of the pandemic still loom over our plans, but that gives us more reason to celebrate summer together! Speaking of remnants, there are still abandoned buildings in Detroit that deserve to hold another purpose. Reclaimed and recycled materials are their forte. Gather your favorite people with their new and restored dining tables. Peruse the decor under “Home Goods”. We know you’ve been waiting to serve your guests a fancy plate of food. Make the plate just as eye-catching as the goodies with a Green Marble and Brass Serving Board or the WT Reclaiming Serving Board. Learn about the Rebel Nell X Woodward collab with their recent Fordite Collection HERE! Located at 11500 Joseph Campau St, Hamtramck, MI 48212.
