Its All in the Details

Nestled into a little-known shopping center on Loveland-Madeira Road near Indian Hill is a hidden gem of a new home décor and gift store called Fleurish Home. The beautiful stonework façade and rustic wood columns immediately draw your eye and beg you to come in and see more.
Once inside you’ll discover a little bit of everything for the home. They have a well curated collection of new, vintage and one-of-a-kind artisan made furniture (with more available to order). You’ll also find unique décor items throughout the store. Some of the staff favorites include vintage book letters, oversized botanicals and super soft throw blankets. Do a lot of entertaining? From the olive wood collection, to the handmade Vietri Italian dishes and soapstone serving pieces, your dinner party is sure to “fleurish!”
Shop owners Debra and Doug Campbell believe that beautiful design should be a part of everyone’s daily living and the concept for the shop started with that accessibility in mind. They were the first in the Midwest to carry a new decorative paint product called Chalk Paint® – which they are the exclusive retailers for here in Cincinnati. That product has now become “the hottest thing for DIY in the market,” says Debra. “Annie Sloan developed her brand of decorative paint, Chalk Paint®, in 1990 but it’s only been in the US since late 2010. It isn’t a latex paint. Latex forms a film on the surface making it prone to chipping. Chalk Paint® bonds to the surface without having to strip, sand or prime first and stays breathable and flexible allowing it to move with the piece so it’s nearly impossible for it to chip. Because of this, you can even paint fabric without it peeling or cracking! It’s primarily used for furniture and cabinets but it will stick to most anything. It’s a real game changer.”
The entire Fleurish Home team has had extensive training and is ready to assist customers with technical questions about refinishing their furniture and help with color selection but they also offer regular hands-on workshops.
