Ever wonder what it would be like to be able to hire one of your favorite design stars? Think about working with Justina Blakeney to create the ultimate colorful, plant-filled living room of your bohemian dreams or maybe you’d do anything to get a bit of Sarah Sherman Samuel’s signature breezy elegance into your kitchen. We can’t promise either, but there is a way to get your favorite designer’s style at home without ever leaving your sofa. Several of the most prominent design bloggers actually have their own shops, featuring pieces they’ve either created themselves or carefully curated, and if you’re not shopping them, you’re missing out.

These shops are a go-to for us here at Domino when it comes to sourcing unique, under-the-radar products. We figured it’s high time we disclose this insider knowledge and share some of our favorite designer-owned decor shops. Whether your personal style leans sleek and contemporary or you’re a fiend for globally inspired antiques, these virtual boutiques are worth taking a look at before you hit up a big-box retailer.

If your happy place is your local antique market…

The Shop:

Shoppe Amber Interiors

The Style:

Amber Lewis’s store reflects the designer’s love for mixed vintage and modern pieces. The shop is broken up into two categories: The “Made by Shoppe” section, Lewis’s in-house furniture line, and the “Shop” section, an assortment of curated finds from around the world. You’ll find square ottomans upholstered in vintage kilim rugs on the same product page as a solid oak console table. There’s a lot of variety—almost like shopping a virtual antique market, which we presume was sort of the point.

The Picks:

Opt for one of Lewis’s signatures: an ottoman with sleek brass legs topped off with a plush, vintage-rug-wrapped cushion. It’s a moment of perfect juxtaposition suited for any living room. Looking for something smaller? We love this rosy pink flax linen throw pillow for bringing a bit of character to any sofa or armchair.

If your space is a technicolor dream…

The Shop:

Oh Joy!

The Style:

Joy Cho is known for her cheery, color-filled concoctions, and luckily for her loyal readers, her blog includes a section where an assortment of Cho’s design collaborations are available to shop. Given that she has partnerships with a big range of companies, including kidswear designers and suitcase brands, there’s no shortage of ways to get your fix of Cho’s signature style. Beyond her own designs, she has also uploaded a series of technicolor finds that she herself is coveting; things like rainbow-motif notepads and checker-print plates.

The Picks:

If you’ve been hesitant to dive headfirst into the neon revival trend, these napkins are your ticket in. The hot-pink and vibrant orange colorways are Oh Joy! exclusives and perfectly speak to the designer’s lively style. Or try a multicolored rug to infuse life into tired floors. This particular one is machine-washable, so you can even use it in high-traffic areas.

If you have more plants than you have room for…

The Shop:

Jungalow Shop

The Style:

If you’re craving bohemian decor, go directly to the queen of boho style herself. Justina Blakeney’s online shop is full of gorgeous patterned textiles, woven accessories, and—of course—colorful planters in which to house your army of greenery. Maximalists will love the saturated, pattern-heavy pieces, and minimalists will love the focus on natural, organic materials.

The Picks:

Bring color to your open shelving with a set of sculptural ceramic cups. Available in four colorways, the tiny vessels are great for anything from morning coffee to aperitivo hour. You can even use them as mini planters to hold succulents. Elsewhere, for a dose of natural materials, try this bamboo light pendant. Hung above your dining room table, it’ll pull the space together in no time.

If, given the option, you would shiplap your entire home…

The Shop:

Magnolia Market

The Style:

Okay, so this one isn’t exactly “under the radar,” but since Chip and Jo’s Target line gets most of the attention, we thought we’d issue a gentle reminder to check in on their original online boutique. Magnolia Market is a one-stop shop for all things modern farmhouse: From classic kitchen essentials to minimally printed throw pillows, you’ll find several Joanna Gaines–approved ways to update your home.

The Picks:

Pick up a couple of cool-toned throw pillow to cozy up your family room’s sofa. For a modern farmhouse classic, these wooden tapered candle holders will bring organic texture to any empty mantel or bookcase.

If you’re all about sleek modernity…

The Shop:

Sarah Sherman Samuel

The Style:

The effortlessly cool designer’s website includes a “shop” section where all her latest collaborations, from lighting to wallpaper, are available to peruse. Contemporary geometric shapes and simple neutrals abound. Plus, with most things under or around $100, you won’t break the bank in the process of emulating Sherman Samuel’s breezy style.

The Picks:

Made in collaboration with Park Studio, Sherman Samuel’s half-moon cabinet knobs are an easy way to personalize any dresser or kitchen cabinetry. The designer used them herself when crafting blogger Bri Emery’s kitchen, and while the hardware is a tiny detail, it really upgraded the room. For a larger statement, go for this stylish pendant light. Abstract shapes take center stage in this modern minimalist fixture.

If you dream of breezy West Coast style…

The Shop:

McGee & Co.

The Style:

Shea McGee of Studio McGee is known for her love of neutrals and simple, airy style. The California-inspired aesthetic is alive and well in her online shop, which includes items for every room in the house. You’ll find cool armchairs in organic materials and contemporary silhouettes and a slew of globally inspired finds that somehow replicate McGee’s aesthetic perfectly.

The Picks:

Upgrade your bath towels: This gray-and-white striped option is handwoven in Ethiopia and adds a finishing touch of quiet sophistication. If you’ve been looking for the opportunity to jump aboard the Southwest style trend train, McGee’s Salinger Chair blends teak and leather for a desert-inspired piece.
