Home decor is one of my absolute favorite things to indulge in, and it’s even better when you find a store that literally “speaks” to you. As cliché as that sounds, that is what happened when I first stepped into Pom Pom Interiors. The minute I walked in not only did my eyes begin to sparkle, but my heart was racing. It was like meeting the man of your dreams and all you could do is stand there and take it all while trying to hide your excitement. The white, silver, crystal, gray, and wooden palette of the store was incredibly chic and all I wanted to do was scream and say how gorgeous everything was! Just from walking in you begin to feel like you’re in some sort of luxurious mansion but without the stuffiness and with a welcoming and friendly vibe.
Pom Pom Interiors impressed me in more ways than one. Sure, everything inside was eye-catching and desirable, but the energy of the store was exceptional. The staff is not only friendly, but extremely knowledgeable. As someone who asks a lot of questions, the lovely staff answered all of them with a clear passion in their voice.
After perusing the store for a good hour, I came across so many inspiring trinkets, and many to-die-for pieces, like soft-to-the-touch comforters, Eiffel tower napkin holders & basically a whole outdoor patio (furnishings & all) that I wanted to transport into my own home. By just walking into the Santa Monica Pom Pom Interiors store, I felt a rush of inspiration and that is one of the reasons why I love this unique store. Many interior design/home decor stores don’t have a welcoming and inspiring vibe that Pom Pom Interiors has. Everything is separate and it’s almost like trying to choose a table as you would choose a suspect through a glass window in the police department. It’s not warm, and it’s not inspiring. Pom Pom Interiors is a store that is fully decorated and it’s done in a way that is elegant, classic and extremely inspiring.
Pom Pom Interiors is a family run business, which also adds to the appeal. You will usually find one of the owners in either of their stores and their helpfulness and warmth is one of the best parts about visiting this place.
Thanks to Pom Pom Interiors for the Above Images
The day I went to check this hidden gem out, I fortunately had brought my trusted camera along with me. I took over eighty images, and as much as I would like to post them all, here are a few items that truly caught my eye, as well as the “I want to stay here forever” patio display that I wish I could be in right now as I type this.
Hilde Leiaghat, owner and designer, was sweet enough to answer some questions I had conjured up. A special thanks to her!
