Heather Sehulster
Owner, Procurer of fine goods, Interior Designer, Candle Maker
Born and raised on the California Coast, Heather derives her greatest inspiration from the sea. Her specialty…bringing the outside in, combining a modern aesthetic with the luxuries nature provides.  The former broadcast journalist moved with her 2 children to breathtaking Port Townsend WA in 2005.  When Heather is not designing or decorating, she’s busy concocting original scents for her popular line of Conservatory candles or out running after her 2 busy boys. Heather is passionate about interiors and has an extraordinary talent for merchandising. Every corner of the store has been carefully and beautifully curated and displayed by Heather.
