Where do Laguna Beach locals go for home décor?

While tourists crowd the first block of retail stores on Forest Avenue in Laguna Beach, locals slip right past them, heading just one block further on Forest to their favorite décor and gift store in town, The Colony.

Nestled next to the town’s post office since 1994, The Laguna Colony Company is a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind collections and the hottest trends in jewelry and home fragrances – you won’t find these pieces anywhere else in Laguna Beach. It’s why locals, celebrities and returning travelers from all over the world stop in regularly to see what proprietor Paul Mosley is featuring this time around. He keeps it fresh, eclectic and very reasonably priced.

As just a sampling, The Laguna Colony features:

  • Vietri and Mariposa dish and serving ware;
  • Aquiesse and Voluspa candles and home fragrances;
  • Jellycat stuffed animals in the children’s section;
  • The latest rage in jewelry – Kim Herbert’s line of Charlotte Singleton Silver;
  • And the Energy Muse Jewelry line, made famous by hundreds of celebrity devotees such as Heidi Klum, Seal, Hillary Duff, David Beckham, Usher, Ryan Seacrest … even Patti LaBelle and L.A. Lakers Coach Phil Jackson.

Your home will thank you, your jewelry box will thank you, and your pet sitters back home will be so pleased that you opted for a sophisticated gift instead of that run-of-the-mill tourist t-shirt.

The store is open 7 days a week between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Call (949) 497-8919

Insider Facts:

Paul Mosley is regularly called upon to complete extensive holiday décor in homes up and down the Southern California coast. For consultations, call him at the store, (949) 497-8919. Get in line early!

The Colony building used to be the original lumber yard shop – Laguna Lumber – and is one of the oldest buildings in town. Prior to the lumberyard going in, construction materials were hauled by mule down Laguna Canyon. The shop’s floors are original, dating back to 1913.

How to Find Laguna Colony Company:

From Laguna’s Main Beach (the first big beach at Broadway and PCH), go just one block south to Forest Ave. and travel toward the end of Forest past two stop signs. Metered parking is on the street or in a large lot just a few shop doors down from the Colony.

In the summer, free shuttles from either side of town will deposit you on Ocean Avenue, just one block directly behind The Colony.
