Home to the Denver Design District and Antique Row, South Broadway’s reputation as the city’s interior design epicenter is already legendary. But thanks to these recently opened boutiques, there’s now more reason for the trend-forward nester to while away a Saturday shuttling up and down the street. Whether you’re planning a total renovation or poking around for some design eye candy, these stores will leave you inspired and ready to redo.
Hazel & Dewey Foodies will celebrate the hard-to-find contemporary kitchen goods and textiles on display at this airy store. Bonus: Owner Jenna Miles carries goods from local artisans, such as beautiful checkered wood from Designer Cutting Boards and mini chalkboards by Kate McPhee Studio. 70 South Broadway, 303-777-1500, hazel-dewey.com
Waterworks The impeccable kitchen and bath showroom relocated from Cherry Creek North to the Collection at Denver Design District this spring. Designers and weekend renovators alike flock to the store for its classic cast-iron bathtubs, jewel-tone glass tile, and smell-good candles. 601 South Broadway, Suite X, 303-282-6800, waterworks.com
Ironwood Owners Alyson Two Eagles and Jeff Childress’ smartly curated selection of found objects, art, and plants feels like a museum. Highlights include vintage toys, dream catchers, and ink-on-paper prints. Or choose from a variety of succulents to build a custom terrarium. 14 South Broadway, 720-458-0015, ironwoodcollection.com
Sewn If Etsy had a storefront, it would look like this. Find that perfect conversation piece for the home: a patchwork-upholstered chair, hand-embroidered tea towel, or set of vintage-inspired tumblers. Visionaries Kirsten Coplans and Jil Cappuccio also churn out beautiful clothing on-site. 18 South Broadway, 303-832-1493, sewndenver.com
