    L.A. is bursting with seriously amazing retail spaces — so much so that sometimes, we find ourselves wondering, wistfully, if we might be able to move in to make every morning as sun-drenched, colorful, and lovely as our shopping experiences. Sadly, it's just not in the cards! But, that's no reason to shut ourselves off from all of the inspiring goodness these spaces offer. HeyBillie Magazine, purveyor of killer interiors, visited one such shop, Silverlake's very own Swiss import En Soie, to have the store owners school us on translating some of their decorating tricks to our own domestic habitats.

    The suggestions that co-owner Eleonore Meier offers are totally approachable — from building color and texture against simple backdrops to paying attention to details and always finding room for flowers. Click through and prepare for some seriously powerful decor envy! But, don't worry — we think you can recreate some of these tips all on your own. (HeyBillie Magazine)
