Downtown Hollywood recently welcomed a new storefront - a unique vintage gift shop called Omara's Heaven! Brought to you by interior designer Omara Frybarger, the store opened at 2015 Harrison Street in mid-February and brings Omara's eye for quality and unique decorating style to life.
Featuring casual-elegant furniture in a style Omara calls "shabby chic with a French chateau twist," you will find vintage desks, table lamps, chandeliers and mirrors, a variety of gift items, wallpaper and fabrics for sale.
Many pieces are one-of-a-kind, come from estate sales, or are distressed and gilded by Omara herself. When the Chicago native relocated to Florida nine years ago, she wanted to introduce a different style of furniture to South Florida - something beyond the usual tropical, nautical or ultra-modern themes.
"I'm big on detail, and I'm very passionate about what I do. I like a little sparkle of elegance in everything," Omara says.
Among the shop's gift selection are vintage jewelry, perfumes, candles and picture frames, and if you love the style of the store, Omara is available for interior design services with more than 15 years of experience in the field.
Downtown Hollywood was Omara's top choice for her new business. "I love Downtown Hollywood," she says. "With is lush landscape, canopy of trees, brick pavers, unique shops and historic architecture, it has such a warm feeling."
Omara's Heaven is located at 2015 Harrison Street. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and by appointment only on Sundays. For more information, call 954-579-1062.
