We had the good fortune of connecting with Nasha & Kyle Dequillettes and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Nasha & Kyle, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
2020 was not the best economy ( the worst ever ! ) to start a business. We often joked nowhere to go but UP. Those first few years we were determined to not only survive but to thrive in our community.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
We LOVE everything home 🙂 You experience that right when you walk in! We always have music & a candle going. Our desk is a dining table you cannot get more home than that. We really want to create an atmosphere that is cozy, warm & inspiring. We hand select a lot of our products from local artists in southern California from handmade bricks to painted unique tiles. We have all the necessities too… subways, large format, counter tops, stone & wood flooring. We have already done a lot of the work ahead a time by selecting the best of the best at any price point. It is such a compliment when people express how they feel when they are here during the process. We know we have done our job well when they leave more excited and full of joy to start their project!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Since we are close to the 78 Free way we love this area. We would for sure start at The goods in Carlsbad or Parlor donuts in Oceanside. Maybe both 😉 Downtown Oceanside & Carlsbad have great beaches. You would definitely find us piled down on the sand. So many cute shops on HWY 101. Dinner would be at LTH best food and drinks around 🙂 🙂
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Our team is amazing ! It truly takes a village. The Shop has evolved so much since 2010. We first started with our love for tile & stone. With all hands on deck we have grown into a design center for homeowners , designers, contractors and builders. In the last few years we have added home decor market that adds the extra touch ! Its been an honor to serve our community 🙂
