Amber Lewis is the current star in the Bohemian design sky. Her interiors are pinned and re-pinned with lightning speed and her signature styling recognizable even without her name attached to it. Her Instagrams comments filled with “where is this from?”, “love the pillow, where can I buy it!!” and such. So it was only natural for Amber to open a brick and mortar space. The Shoppe Amber Interiors might be tucked away a bit, in the sleepy town or Calabasas, but trust us, it’s so worth the trek. The shelves are filled with Amber’s own indigo pillows, beautiful bedding, and rugs, personally sourced by Amber.
