Home decor trends found locally
Let’s be honest, home trends are constantly changing. Dark cabinets from the early 2000s have been furiously painted white, silver fixings have been replaced by gold, but one thing is for certain—buying local never goes out of style. We found some of the coolest makers and shops right here in Baton Rouge (plus one in our sister city Lafayette!), that will give your home a personality that is timeless.
