Austin continues to find itself on national best-of lists, and this time around, we're earning props for one of our charming, homegrown shops.
Of the 22 states (plus the District of Columbia) that House Beautiful focused on, New York dominated the list with more than 50 stores. Texas did well though, with nine local, mom-and-pop shops getting props. Five Dallas shops made the list, plus three stores — British Isle, High Fashion Home and Settlement — in Houston.
We're guessing House Beautiful was smitten with Take Heart's sunny storefront and thoughtfully curated selection of art, accessories and home decor. The artful store features vintage, modern and handmade one-of-a-kind items, including stoneware, jewelry and even wind chimes.
The next time you find yourself exploring the east side, stop by Take Heart. We're sure it'll charm you, too.
