With Easter and spring approaching, no doubt you’ll soon be looking for colorful items to brighten up your home. There’ll be no need to go far away from the Foothills, because there’s a lovely selection of beautiful items at Kirkland’s Home, located in the Huntington Oaks Shopping Center, at Huntington Drive and Mayflower Avenue, in Monrovia.
What to expect
Think of a Cost Plus, or a Pier 1 Imports, but homier and warmer. At Kirkland’s, the aroma of candles and satchels greets you at the door. Here are the scents and the accessories that you want in your home, as well as striking decorative pictures and unique frames (like those pictured above), imposing mirrors and light fixtures, and rugs and curtains. Here you’ll also find the seasonal items you’ll need for the upcoming season – bunnies, eggs, and baskets in pastel colors, offered in all textures and sizes.
An oasis of beauty
Kirkland’s is a boutique-like store in a shopping center that is dominated by commercial behemoths like Kohl’s and Marshalls. It is basically an oasis of beauty and gracefulness in an otherwise desert of sameness. Instead of purchasing an over-reproduced item, take home one with a soul. Acquire that piece that you can proudly display; one that will make people stop and look. And, by the way, Kirkland’s is definitely the place to find the perfect gift for a loved one.
Last weekend, every item in the store was offered at 15% off. You should pay them a visit, but if you want a preview, go to Kirkland’s website (although the page doesn’t make the store justice). If you like what you see, you can even start shopping online and arrange for your purchases to be shipped directly to your home, or for pick up at the store.
Kirkland’s Home is located at 542 W. Huntington Drive, Monrovia CA 91016.
