Road Trip: Iron Accents

Traveling northwest of Gainesville GA on 129 (Cleveland Highway) you will find this fabulous shop as you pass through Clermont. (www.ironaccents.com)

Owner Valerie, and designer Terri have perfected every inch of this beautiful shop to make this a "must visit" destination!

The shop is set up in dozens of creative and fun vignettes, utilizing architectural antiques such as columns, windows, doors, corbels and much more, to create fabulous areas for displaying their unique home and garden accessories and furniture.

And, of course, the signature iron accent pieces of all kinds are found in every nook and cranny!

Valerie has a genius for finding the best primitive antique and new furniture and accessories.

Interior designer Terri pulls it all together with her special talent....drawing from many years of experience as a shop owner.....to make it all so fabulous!

I love how they display the rooms in a creative and practical way.....to give visitors a fresh idea of how to transform their own living spaces, or those of their clients, into a new environment....using new or vintage pieces.

I love this cool window repurposed into a functional curio cupboard.


There are awesome primitive cupboards, tables, and trunks everywhere.........

...and you'll have to go through the store several times to take it all in...... seeing new things each time.

From a merchandising point of view, their use of space is truly amazing, and I was really inspired by it all!

Be sure to visit Valerie and Terri (just click on the link at the top for info) when you are in the beautiful NE Georgia mountain area!

There's a store kind of like that in Las Vegas. I want one in Arizona. Maybe there is one and I don't know it. I love the pics of the selection.

What great eye candy!! Thank you so much for the tour, I live in SoCal but I felt as though I were walking through the store enjoying every bit of it. Don't you just love the "zoom" option, you can almost touch all the goodies displayed!

I'll be back soon!
