Nothing says spring like a bit of green and some floral décor. And That Old Blue Door, located in downtown White Bear Lake, has what you need to put a little spring in your decorating step.
The shop offers a fun mix of new, vintage and upcycled furniture, and delightful home décor items.
Owners, Cora and Bryan Haugen, say they’re overwhelmed with the support they’ve received. “Our store has grown tremendously since we opened in White Bear,” says Cora.
To give inspiration to her customers, Cora uses creative ideas that can be easily duplicated. “I like to decorate the store year-round to make it look like a home—and to give customers ideas for their own homes,” she says. She always begins with neutral furniture and adds pops of color with artwork, pillows and florals.
For spring, Cora says florals are especially important. “I love the look of white flowers and greenery throughout the store.”
If you’re looking for a little pop of green for your home this spring, Cora suggests moss and succulent balls. “They are fun décor items to tuck into displays and trays, and work well on top of candle holders,” she says.
