Que Sera (sera)!

Love the local interior design shop Que Sera, their style is luxurious and beautiful in a whimsical yet casual way.  I found the special pendant lights over our kitchen island here when the shop was at the Galleria in Edina. I can’t say how many people have remarked on them – they make a statement in such an understated way!  Much like many of the unique finds sourced by the talented designers at Que Sera.

So, though I was sad to see them move out of our ‘hood to their new home in Excelsior, I was excited to see the new digs and to receive the snazzy invite to their grand opening event!

Last Thursday night my mom, a friend of mine, and I all headed west to check it out, nibble on some treats, shop, and dine alfresco afterwards on Water Street. As expected, the new store is lovely, filled with so many special pieces.  My friend remarked that the shop’s relaxed-posh vibe seems almost more at home near the water, away from the “city” bustle of a mall (even as chi-chi as the Galleria).  She took home a sample of a Dash & Albert rug while my mom admired a Trina Turk throw pillow for her master bedroom decorating project. A good time was had by all, really, what’s not to like? Wine, shopping, girl talk, and maybe a little more wine.
