A Shop of Their Own

Few days ago it started to warm up here in the Washington D.C. area. After the blizzard of 2009, and the bitter cold weather that we’ve been experiencing lately, having a day full of sunshine was wonderful.

I decided to go out for a walk just to soak up the sun. My destination: the historic Georgetown in DC. Georgetown is an old and dynamic neighborhood filled with diverse shops and restaurants. Just walking down the streets and discovering the architectural elements of the city is always thrilling. I stopped by one of my favorite antique shops called Moss & Co.

Moss & Co. is a romantic shop filled with unique pieces of furniture, lighting, and accessories. The shop is located in upper Georgetown near Book Hill Park. Moss & Co. opened about ten years ago, it has three creative owners (designers Jackie Oliver Dunn, Moki Heston, and Catharine Roberts) who all share the same design aesthetics.

Every time I visit, the sense of discovery prompts me to study and observe their unique finds, whether it’s their soft matte finishes or the gentle colors of their antiques. Their collection consists of pieces that had been carefully selected and displayed with love. It is a reflection of the soft, opulent look that is warm and inviting.

This is my favorite shop in Gtown too! As I work in Gtown, I try to avoid tempting with great stores just up the street!
