Shops We Love: Inspirati

An appreciation for fine linens was instilled in decorator Wendy Brownie by her grandmother, who owned a linen shop in England before emigrating to Canada in the 1920s. When Brownie became frustrated looking for an heirloom-quality tablecloth to give to her daughter as an engagement present, she followed in her grandmother’s footsteps and opened Inspirati.

The small shop is a destination for beautifully crafted household linens. Bedding, tablecloths, towels and aprons come in a variety of rich hues, playful patterns and luxe fabrics. “New tea towels can change the look of a kitchen, no matter how fancy or minimalist your space is,” says Brownie.

Located 120 – 2207 4th Street SW, Calgary.
