    We like to think we know a thing or two about hidden gems. Whether it's a tucked-away ice cream shop or a semi-secret cache of vintage baubles, we try to be in the know, always. So, when we say M29 Lifestyle is something of an off-the-radar treasure, you know we mean business.

    The Georgetown accessory haven just relocated to a roomy new venue around the corner from its former home, adding 1,000 square feet and plenty of airy, beautifully lit space. It's the perfect canvas for the 80 or so designers showcased there — you can expect everything from beaded baubles and coin purses you can't resist to furniture and some truly adorable home decor buys.

    Among the shelves and racks, you'll find cozy pillows, Etro printed pants, Chan Luu bracelets, scarves and skirts by the boatload, and a sweet assortment of candles by Calypso and Mine Design. For summer, we're loving the totes in nautical and animal prints and the sassy Thomas Paul eyewear cases. And to make things even more interesting, the team at M29 isn't slowing down: If a bigger location weren't exciting enough, you can also look forward to a cafe opening in the store this fall. In the meantime, we've got some gorgeous snapshots of the brand-new digs for your clicking pleasure — it's the next best thing to a shopping trip, right?

    Where: M29 Lifestyle, 2800 Pennsylvania Avenue NW; 202-295-2829.

How To Recreate An Upscale Look For Pennies

This home in Chicago is by far one of our most impressive in terms of sheer space and total wackiness. It’s made up of six one-bedroom apartments that include among them two cats, a lot of different design ideas, and something close to four rotating tenants, all of whom are friends. The home is big, beautiful, and read
