I celebrated President's Day this weekend by visiting the historic Williamsburg Premium Outlets. The Outlets were founded by Captain John Smith in 1607 after he arrived at the head of the James River and realized that, in addition to limited supplies, there was no where to buy brand name leather goods, or even Harry & David gift baskets. 400+ years later, you can still barter with shopkeepers to own an authentic COACH wristlet or Burburry scarf (a favorite of Captain Smith's because of the cold winters).

My favorite part of these historic shops was the newest addition, a recently renovated Kate Spade store. The best part? In addition to the bags, there were some really great decor ideas I want to try at home!

Wouldn't this be a fun way to do a feature wall in a closet? A few floating shelves from West Elm, a collage of favorite images, a brightly painted credenza, and a pop-of-color light...

The walls above the cashier's counter were covered in massive floral prints and a stenciled story about the "Kate Spade girl." The umbrella, shoes, and book were actual items glued to the wall. I wouldn't recommend THAT at home, but the wall mural would be fab in a living room.

Also loved the shadow boxes for purses - totally doable!

The only reason I didn't leave with this stool was because I couldn't figure out how to fit it in my purse. SO FAB. Maybe Kate Spade furniture is in the future?

Very adorable - love all the color and pop! And yes, those outlets have hundreds of years of history behind them!

You really have such a great eye for identifying beautiful/inspiring interiors. Thanks for sharing. Especially sharing Etsy finds that are far more affordable than many of the high end products.
