Local interior designer Bentley Waters debuted this decor-and-design center last year. The Chappaqua spot is an upscale retail destination for home goods, furnishings (new and vintage, as well as custom-designed pieces), and elegant gifts (candle sets, coffee-table books). The curated collection reflects Waters’ personal style: a mix of modern and traditional, paired with vibrant colors and patterns. Waters also operates her full-service design business out of the space, where she can source furniture, wallpaper, textiles, and offer interior design and renovation services.

The aesthetic is “West Coast-meets-true-American grit,” says Belizze, with decor featuring an American flag and Navajo prints.
