We've still got the spring cleaning bug—guiltily eyeing everything around, wondering aloud what we can get rid of as soon as humanly possible. We also happen to follow a lot of brick-and-mortar shops on Instagram (as one does when they truly love to shop). As awesome as online shopping is, we will never tire of the in-person shopping experience, what with delicately curated selections and killer decor. Despite what you might be thinking, these two ideas do meet at a central point: the ultimate spring cleaning/spring decor inspiration. We're looking at our favorite shops for cues on how to make our own spaces look really, really awesome. See below for the most inspiring snaps from some of our favorite shops around the country.
