There’s no shortage of great art in St. Louis, and what better way to enjoy it than in your home? Bringing in some handmade items, especially from local artists, is a great way to give your St. Louis home a little upgrade, while also supporting some wonderful local makers. Need some inspiration to get started with your St. Louis shopping? Here are a few ways to bring the handmade vibe home:
Find Your Favorite Mug, or Two
Adding some handmade ceramics to your kitchen can be both functional and decorative. If you have a place to store these pieces in the open, your favorite mug can also serve as artwork for your kitchen. And you don’t have to stop with mugs. Stocking up on handmade pottery you love is a great way to bring a handmade touch to your kitchen. There are many potters in and around St. Louis.

Don’t Skip the Bathroom
While it might not be the most design inspired room of your home, don’t overlook the bathroom when it comes to bringing in some handmade art. While there are certainly some great options from wall hangings to bathroom textiles, one of our favorite recommendations is Sammy Soap.

Cozy Up with Textiles
As we start thinking about fall, bringing some cozy vibes to the living room is often a top design goal and textiles are the perfect way for homeowners to add instant warmth. Maybe you grab a few new throw pillows to spruce up your couch or add a soft blanket over the back of your favorite chair.
