Your Place or Mine?
NK Interiors Shop Opens
Considering the state of the dollar, you may have to say au revoir to that Paris trip.
Or any trip for that matter, mon ami.
Except perhaps to NK Shop. The new interior store brings furnishing and housewares from Paris — and other destinations the world over — to you.
With an aesthetic that is at once rustic and refined, Amy Kehoe and Todd Nickey’s carefully curated shop is a treasury of functional antiques; sophisticated vintage; and handcrafted, responsibly-made, contemporary wares.
Check out the earthy-chic dishware by White Forest Pottery, merino wool scarves from Wales, and tea-scented candles by Mariage Frères. Lounge on the late-19th-century settee, reupholstered with a Moroccan rug. Decide that the pillows made from the silk of Japanese obis have a certain je ne sais quoi.
In fact, you’d bet your bottom dollar on it.
NK Shop, 730 North Highland Avenue, between Waring and Melrose Avenues, Hollywood (323-957-0370).

Really, You Shouldn’t Have
Venokado Wine and Gifts Boutique Opens
Your friends think you know them so well.
At least well enough to know you’d find perfect presents at Venokado.
In what was once a dumpy mini mart on Fountain, the new wine and gifts boutique takes a modern, curated approach, from the polished concrete floors to the wall of wine — and all the design objects, housewares, beauty products, and kids’ fixings in between.
Stop by en-dinner-party-route for a bottle of red and Riedel glassware to go with or wrap up gorgeous candles, horseshoe game sets, or art books.
Can’t decide? Let the experts assemble a multigoodie box per budget and recipient’s likes.
They’ll surely say you shouldn’t have, but they’re glad you did.
Even if you didn’t.
Venokado, 7714 Fountain Avenue, between North Spaulding and North Genesee Avenues, West Hollywood (323-850-1600 or venokado.com).
