Ever find yourself swiping through your Instagram feed, fawning over designer digs draped in bohemian fabrics and epic light fixtures, wondering where on earth people find such one-of-a-kind pieces? Wonder no more: Dallas’ own Judy Aldridge — fashion and interior decorating blogger — has just launched Shop Atlantis Home, styling the online boutique after her own designs featured on her blog, Atlantis Home.
A self-proclaimed textile addict, Aldridge has stocked her store with an inventory that relies heavily on vibrant throws, rugs, and pillows from exotic locales. Think bedding and serapes from Mexico and pillows from Guatemala, among rugs and other vintage accessories.
As the shop’s tagline suggests, you really can “create your very own bohemian home,” à la Aldridge, and you can do it without breaking the bank. Gorgeous handmade throw pillows cost an average of $64 each, and heavily embroidered bedding pieces — some made from vintage Guatemalan Huipil fabric — are a steal at around $300.
Other funky items like primitive bull sculptures or folk art from Mexico pop up from time to time, as Aldridge stumbles across something new. The variety of items speaks to Aldridge’s discerning eye, which has made her blog a favorite among readers. The interior décor queen has selected something for everyone, whether your taste favors deep browns and muted tones or you covet hot pinks, bright blues, and over-the-top florals.
A former model, Aldridge spent some time on the runways of Tokyo before coming back home to Dallas to pursue fashion design. She’s been a style influencer ever since, with a store in Deep Ellum in the late 1980s, the eco-friendly label Atlantis Underground in the 1990s, and her inspirational blog today.
