This beach-inspired lifestyle shop made it on our list of favorite local home stores, and for good reason. Coco Blanca stocks everything from shabby-chic tables to Hollywood Regency-style gilded mirrors, along with a small sampling of covetable jewelry and women's clothing. The store's owners describe it as the lovechild of Ernest Hemingway and Audrey Hepburn, and after one look at the stylish mix of earthy and polished elements, we'd say they nailed it.
