friday finds at a boston area boutique


I have decided to spread some local love today. In the midst of the tour de weddings, I have spent the last two weekends in Nashville and will spend next weekend in Seattle, so while I have a moment at home to catch my breath, I wanted to show off my beloved Boston. Boston had a hard spring, but the events in April have brought us together and shown the rest of the world just how resilient we are, and also how much good we got going on! 

So where do I begin? There are endless destinations, boutiques, and decorators to explore in and around Boston--many of which I hope to share with you on shell & chinoiserie--but today I am featuring one of my favorite area boutiques in the town of Belmont, about 20 minutes outside of the city. 

Located in Belmont Center, Bells & Whistles is a charming space chock-full of finds ranging from furniture to fragrance. Manager Kristyn Meech has stocked the store with an extensive selection of household items and gifts. Beautiful linens, tabletop pieces, books and lighting are in abundance at Bells & Whistles! They also specialize in stationary and even have an in-house Graphic Designer to help you personalize the perfect stationary suite from lines such as Crane and Co. and Boatman Geller! 

Bells & Whistles is my go-to gift shop for weddings, stationary, and showers of all kinds (they carry a great baby line!). Luckily they offer a registry to help shoppers filter through all of their fabulous finds!

Here are a few of mine:

I may have bought two (in red, of course), because they are actually placemats, but very clever of Bells & Whistles to frame it! ;)
