Eden GardenHouse's attentive staff curates the feel of an outdoor garden by bringing pottery, trellises, and terra cotta accents together as a backdrop for the home-accents shop. The assortment of house- and condo-beautifying products includes lamps, candles, finials, and pictures. Clients can choose items for themselves or bring an Eden consultant into their home to help them decorate unadorned sitting rooms or floating houseboats stripped of décor by thieving seagulls. A children’s garden room nestles inside Eden, where the branches of a tree mural hang over a play area full of garden-inspired toys such as rakes, watering cans, and riding lawnmowers. The space also plays host to children’s workshops where they work with parents to complete a garden art project.
