The Best Home Decor Shops in Baltimore

Whether you’re starting from scratch in a new apartment or are gearing up for a design refresh, you’ll want to check out these amazing home decor shops close to our apartments near Johns Hopkins.


Located at 3555 Chestnut Avenue, this trendy one-stop boutique is filled with unique home decor, furniture, accessories, paper products, and more. Founded in 1998, owner Leslie Stevenson opened the shop after realizing the Baltimore market lacked a place to find unique home goods and gifts. Attend a monthly First Friday event, when several shops in Hampden stay open late and offer special deals and treats. Check out In Watermelon Sugar’s website for more information and inspiration.


Trohv, as in treasure trove, is an independently-owned home goods and gift shop located at 921 W. 36th Street. Their diverse and ever-changing inventory is filled with items like Scottish wool blankets, hand-poured, eco-friendly candles, artisan glassware, and so much more. A quick scan of Trohv’s Instagram gives you a glimpse at the artistry on display here.


For something entirely different, and, well, bizarre, head over to Bazaar at 3534 Chestnut Avenue. This unique gift and decor shop specializes in oddities that lean toward the more morbid end of the spectrum. Taxidermy, antique medical equipment, skulls, jarred specimens, oddly scented soy candles, vintage photography, and so much more. The style may not be for everyone, but it’s definitely worth your time to check out this iconic and bizarre shop.


For the more traditional among us, check out Stony Run Home. Relatively new to Baltimore, Stony Run carries unique lighting, local art, antique furniture, and more. All items are carefully selected by owner Lauri Fitzgerald, an experienced interior designer. Head to their website, or swing by the store at 5 Tamworth Road.
