Gift Ideas for the Design Enthusiast

Never at a loss for beautiful things to covet, I love to give gifts. Supporting local small businesses is equally important to my boutique design studio, and so I’ve assembled a special gift guide for the design enthusiast featuring the best of Danville.


A Brochu Walker sweater echoes the unique detailing I love on furnishings and a bold sneaker is a touch of the unexpected, just like my signature design style.


A Turkish tea towel or any piece of stoneware from Lemon can’t miss when gifting a design-lover. Pieces that are timeless and unique are a big win on my gift list.


I count on Ella J for a great band tee to layer under a blazer just as much as a slinky midi-dress for date night. Another can’t-miss: a delicate necklace fit for layering.


Matouk bedding, bath rugs from Abyss & Habidecor, or a sumptuous robe from Le Jacquard Francais are what cozy home dreams are made of at Misto Lino.


My favorite finds from Alina B include vintage trunks and Alexander McQueen scarves… two things that fit everyone on your list. I am equally inspired by fashion and vintage in my design work.


A great way to enjoy beautiful surroundings is with a great glass of wine. I love The Vine Wine Club for the gift you sip that keeps on giving, monthly.


As beautiful as they are delicious, Danville Chocolates combines perfect gifting opportunities for design and chocolate lovers alike.


An elegant kitchen would not be complete without a complementary bowl or treat canister for our furry family members. There is a lot of cuteness to find at Molly’s, but we especially adore their ceramic bowls and canisters.

For the ultimate gift for the design enthusiast, give the gift of incredible design by Casey Howard Interior Design.
