Spruce is cozily stuffed with lots of luxurious items.

Lux On Leavenworth

Spruce is a welcome addition to Midtown

Tucked away in a little brick building in a most unassuming spot, Spruce, an interior and gift boutique, is almost discreet enough to pass by without knowing. But the little shop on 50th and Leavenworth manages to burst enough personality from the front windows to pique the curiosity of passersby.

Spruce is a treat for the senses. Entering the store, I was greeted with an abundance of colors, patterns, and the scents of Nest candles wafting in the air. The mirrors hanging on the walls and metallic furniture pieces reflect the sunlight pouring in from the windows, setting the stage for the wondrous journey that lies within the quaint space.

The store has a little bit of everything, which instantly reminded me of a little lifestyle boutique, Trocadero, that once lived in the Old Market.

The store is cozily stuffed with chic vignettes of tables and ottomans with gorgeous table lamps and luxurious throw pillows. It has a charming balance of sleek and gilded décor mixed with nature inspired items. Ceramic turtle shell figures and snake print photo frames sit on mirrored dressers behind decoupage plates with quotes, while whimsical sundries and copper Moscow Mule mugs line the shelves on the opposite side of the room.

Fashion, interior, and architecture coffee table books are scattered about, where I was pleased to find titles like Rizzoli’s Weekend Retreats. You’ll also discover scarves, handbags and jewelry pieced in amongst all of the home items, which once again took me back to my former Old Market haunt.

Spruce has a refreshing approach to affordable luxury and owner Amy Sporrer has a keen eye for detail. Don’t pass this delight by next time you are in the area. You are sure to find a thing or two that you can’t live without.
