Watson Kennedy – A Seattle Home Store

Last week I was buzzing around Seattle on a glorious day and had time to pop into an adorable home store called Watson Kennedy. Visiting fun little places like this is like a therapy session for me! I get so inspired and rejuvenated by pretties and store displays. Even if I don’t buy anything, I leave feeling creatively refreshed and excited to use my own things in new ways.

I thought you might enjoy a little eye candy too (therapy, anyone?), so I did my undercover best to show you what I saw through the lens of my iphone!

Fun, huh? It was an inspiring visit and I’m glad you could come along on my little adventure!

Are you able to window shop and return home inspired to look at your own things in new ways?

  1. Wow! What eye candy! I am loving all the red!! Yes, I am able to come home with refreshed ideas for decorating from shopping without buying something. And catalogs help me do that too! I think decorators are like sponges…we soak up ideas anywhere we can find them!

    thanks for the tour!

  9. Melissa,
    This looks like such a fun and original store. The good news for me, I’m headed to Seattle in September for a visit to a dear friend’s home on Bainbridge Island. I’ve added this gem to my list. :-)

  10. What a terrific store! Places like this make me want to set my house up like a store and just wander around in it. Weird I know.

  11. sweet old letters and wonderful dishcloth placemat!

    yes, I get inspired to shift my stuff around, dig out things from boxes, drag furniture from room to room when I read what others are doing, get motivated by wandering through shops, or page through magazines. it usually doesn’t get me longing for more … just a bit of a kick to fully enjoy what I already gathered along the way.

    Oh my , set me free in this wonderful store. I also conjur up some great ideas. The prices look reasonable . My mind is already coming up with some ideas and that was just a quick preview. Thanks for sharing!

  24. I love the way they’ve set out the things in the store. You’re right. Going into a store like that in itself is an inspiration. You don’t even have to buy anything.

    This is so great to know of this store. I am from Yakima and we take day trips to Seattle frequently. Do you know any other great stores? I went to Jubilee thrift store in Bellevue yesterday, everything is donated, and quality stuff. This looks like a fun store, and looks like it would take a long time to get through.

    I have two favorite stores in the United States. Watson-Kennedy in Seattle, and Gardenseed in California. I visit W-K every time I am in the city and I always find something I cannot live without.

  30. Simply love the exterior of this shop. Fabulous!
