When Sarah Fitch opened Décor Adore Boutique in Hartland in 2014, it was an extension of her already-successful interior design business, Lake Country Interiors. But to Fitch, opening her home goods and design shop serves more than just the purpose of being able to meet with clients here—she thrives on greeting customers and finding the best items to show them. The tangible, touch-and-feel aspect of shopping can’t be replicated online, she says.
“We’re unique and we have a creative flair like no other,” Fitch says. “Customers feel good here—and we’re passionate about what we do, so it’s a very inspiring environment.”
Her downtown Hartland location houses home décor, accessories, candles, jewelry, furniture, art—and much more. Fitch prides herself on having “reasonable” prices and items that shoppers can’t find anywhere else. Store vignettes are carefully arranged and the entire shop has an easy-breezy, trend-forward appeal—like in the adorable fringe-adorned throw pillows, apothecary bath and body items, and dried, pressed-flower wall hangings.
Fitch also carries a heavy assortment of gift items and she loves her customizable, lake- themed pieces (like a pillow that says “Go jump in the lake” and other area-specific treasures). She also commissions local artists like her daughter Emily Fitch and Marilee Shepard to do custom paintings for her shop—and for her design customers, too.
Living back in Hartland after residing in Chicago for 30 years has been amazing for Fitch, who’s also the mom of four adult children: “My dream was to be back in Lake Country because I love it here,” she says. “The important part of having this store is creating a vibrant atmosphere in downtown Hartland. It’s a win-win for everybody to shop local—and I’d love Hartland to be a destination.”
