Lenarduzzi Interiors Atelier

A little French country store in Waukesha 

On Bluemound Road in Waukesha, there's a small complex of old stone buildings dating back to the mid-1800s. The place has been a favorite of mine for several years now, ever since I discovered Jack's Café. Earlier this fall, after dining at Jack's, my mom and I stopped at one of the teeny tiny stonewalled houses — an interior design and home décor shop called Lenarduzzi Interiors Atelier.

Outside of the rustic front door arched with blooming foliage, a sign hangs: "Little French Country Store." The charming entryway is echoed inside. The place feels like a fairy cottage with artful vignettes and décor on display from floor to ceiling.

There's so much to take in, you could easily play a game of I Spy. You'll find chandeliers, candles and candle holders, birdcages, glass terrariums, wall art, sprawling vines, French table linens, ornate mirrors, and trinkets seemingly pulled from a storybook.

Jewelry sits near the register and dangles from a chandelier. The owner of the shop told me these glitzy bracelets came from a show in New York, where she was first to pluck them up — only to have Anthropologie quickly follow. So you can see there is great taste at work in this little French country store.

There are also seasonal pieces — foliage and more. I recently saw on Facebook that the shop is starting to trim the place for Christmas; I would love to stop back sometime soon and see what wonders await! From what I saw of the everyday style at Lenarduzzi Interiors Atelier, their holiday selection is sure to enchant.
