About Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts
Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts is a labor of love that was born out of many late night talks and planning about the future between owner Laura Patterson and her husband, Joseph. Creativity and design have been a passion of hers since she was a little girl, but as she grew up, life took her into the medical field where she worked as an Emergency room nurse for almost a decade. Though it was where God had her for that season of life, she knew she wanted to do something different; something more for her family. With the prompting from her husband and family she took a huge leap of faith and opened Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts in November 2007. With absolutely no education or background in retail, she hit the floor running and forged her own path as she went. Our roots are grounded in home decor and decorative accessories. Laura’s goal was to provide a place for beautiful and unique accents for the home that were for every home. She wanted the store to be an inviting and livable space. Over the years we have evolved in to a home decor store and gift shop for all occasions. Laura spends her time looking for the latest and greatest items to bring to her customers. Accents sells many one-of-a-kind and home-spun items for many artisans all over the states, many of which have become her dearest friends. In August of 2012, we moved from our original space of 1800 sq. feet to the existing space of well over 4000 sq. feet. In the space, she is able to bring even more to her customers by now offering an extensive baby gift area.
Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts started off with one person – Laura herself – with the occasional help from her mother and husband, and as her family expanded in July of 2009 with the birth of their son, Sam, they added more people. Now 11 years later, Accents has a full time staff of 17 amazing women. Each of these women come from different backgrounds, and have now found a home at Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts for this season of their lives, and each bring their own special and unique gifts to the table.
Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts offers bridal, baby, and gift registry. It is Laura’s as well as her employees’ passions to help bring beauty and happiness to your life. Our staff is very knowledgable and eager to help you find the perfect accents for your home, or that perfect gift for any occasion from birthdays, to holidays, and everything in between.
As Laura says, it is her personal privilege to serve this community and fulfill a lifelong passion to create and see the labor of love come to life. She loves having customers from all over the region who she now gets to call friends.
“I feel that I have been blessed abundantly, and we are always looking for ways to serve and give back to our community and organizations and people who have made us what we are today. Thank you for your support, and I look forward to this next endeavor …taking Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts online.”
