Now that the green is here to stay (don’t make us wait like that again, Mother Nature!), it’s a good time to look beyond those blooms blossoming in your garden and give your outdoor retreat a makeover. The garden is the perfect place to try mixing old and new, and our fave new place to find the old is the Ciel Loft & Home store. The recently opened St. Louis Park boutique brims with reclaimed wood and farmhouse antiques at affordable prices. You’ll find rustic wooden benches, ideal for summer sunning, and distressed wire baskets for storing garden tools, cuttings, pots, and anything else your green thumb needs. It’s a quick way to create a storybook space that’s also tough enough to withstand even Ms. Nature’s sourest moods.
