5 Black-Owned Home Decor Sites to Make Your Summer-at-Home So Much Chicer

5 Black-Owned Home Decor Sites to Make Your Summer-at-Home So Much Chicer

Despite states opening up their economies and people weirdly thinking that the COVID-19 epidemic is over, we’re still seeing a huge rise in cases in over 22 states. I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely sheltering in place for the foreseeable future.

And since I’m inside of my home about 23.5 hours out of the day, 7 days a week, I thought it was time to tackle some home decor projects I’ve put on the backburner. I wanted to spruce up my balcony area, get my bedroom together, and figure out something to do with my ever-growing mountain of books.

In an effort to be more conscious of where I’m spending my money, I’ve opted to shop with Black-owned businesses only. Unless you’ve been living under a rock (and honestly, I’m ready to join you), you’ll know that on Memorial Day, a Black man named George Floyd was murdered by a white cop, and as a result, there have been huge protests and movements to scream it from the rooftops that Black Lives Matter. Since I don’t feel comfortable protesting during the ongoing pandemic, I’ve decided to support Black-owned businesses so I can put money back into my community. So, I’d love to share with you some of my favorite Black-owned home decor sites that you can use to spruce up your place.

The Jungalow

If you ever want to feel like you’re headed to a tropical getaway, even when you’re stuck at home, just head over to The Jungalow, a home decor website founded by Justina Blakeney. Their motto is “Bring good vibes home,” which we all need right about now.

Clare

My apartment has those standard gray-ish walls, but I’ve been dying to do an accent wall in the dining nook. Enter Clare, a Black-owned paint company that utilizes the expert opinions of interior designers to curate their range of shades. Order a swatch to test out, or you can be adventurous and order a gallon. I have my eye on Golden Hour, a rich yellow hue that reminds me of summertime.

Linoto

All I have ever wanted in life is a linen sheet set, and the gasp I let out when I discovered a Black-owned linen bedding company? I couldn’t deal. Linoto’s linen is sourced from the finest mills in Italy and Belgium—shop linen sheets, towels, curtains, and even boxers.

BLK MKT Vintage

My walls are completely bare, but that’s about to change thanks to BLK MKT Vintage. They specialize in vintage Black magazines, art, and collectibles. I have my eye on a stack of vintage Essence magazines to frame and put in the bathroom, and some of the Civil Rights pins to put on my jacket.

Archer Home Designs

I’ve been on the hunt for a coffee table since I moved to Atlanta nearly four years ago and nothing ever felt quite right until I saw the rustic designs from Archer Home Designs. I’m drooling over the all-brown wooden coffee table—I can just imagine some freshly cut hydrangeas and the giant Rihanna coffee table book on top.
