Luxe Home Décor is the brainchild of Birch Cliff mom, Caroline Pius, a former corporate buyer at major companies such as Hudson’s Bay Company, Shoppers Drug Mart, and most recently Sears. After their closures due to filing for bankruptcy protection, Caroline decided "That was it."

She began her new career as an entrepreneur and opened her shop on June 28, 2018.

I was done and I was going to try something on my own. With all the condos coming up, I think this area is really going to pick up. I thought I might as well invest in something for myself.

Caroline knows her retail. Her sourcing background allows her to carry storage and organizational lines that no one else is selling. She features one-of-a-kind products and exclusive brands from the UK.

I know the brands that are really good value for money, good quality and that’s what I’ve tried to bring to the store so even though somebody might say it’s a more limited selection, I think it’s more of a curated selection because I know the statistics from being in the corporate environment. So I’ve kind of implemented them here.

The artwork in the store, by Suzanne MacRury, is also exclusive to Luxe.  The photography on sale is by Kim Spencer and the pillows were a custom order from Judith Romagnolo of Fab Home Fashions.

Caroline is excited about opening her own shop and is looking forward to nurturing it and watching it grow.

I think being part of the community and actually having a discussion and giving a service, a personalized service, I think that’s really important and that’s what I can do in a store.

Come on in and take a look around! Be inspired! Have fun!
