Kreatelier on Hope Street is a creative wonderland! See what’s new plus a chance to win!

[ 6 ] March 15, 2011 |

In the midst of a winter filled with record-breaking amounts of snow that quickly transformed from slopes of glistening beauty to jagged piles of what I refer to as “visible pollution” it’s no wonder I find myself craving color. A wonderful place to find respite from stark surroundings is Kreatelier, a unique shop on Hope Street on Providence’s East Side. Just looking at the shop’s red exterior, bedecked with cheerful bunting, I am simultaneously soothed and energized.

Kreatelier Store on Hope Street

Kreatelier was established in 2007 by friends Pernilla Frazier and Line Daems, who refer to their working partnership as “a ying-yang combination of creative chaos and carefully considered organization.”

Kreatelier’s ever-expanding signature product line, all made locally at the shop, includes quilts, storage cases, headbands, car organizers, reusable gift wraps and much more. Kreatelier also offers whimsical made-to-order window treatments and interior accents, and workshops for children and adults. Shelves are also stocked with items from other brands and local artists.

  1. That store is my dreamy place. All my kids have the pencil case and next on my list is the flag banner and the car organizer – I need about 10!!!!

    Dreamy place is a good description. I love the car organizer. Boys keep pencils, paper kleenex, maps and water bottles tucked inside. Supplies ready for homework, art projects, etc. And I love the choice of patterns.

    Absolutely LOVE this store!! I’ve been a fan since before they landed on Hope St and I adore their “new” shop there. So many great useful items that you can’t find elsewhere, and filled with inspirational ideas. What I wouldn’t give to be half as creative and talented! One of my all-time favorite spots to pop into!

  4. Margaret says:

    Me too!! Love it. I have resorted to looking up their web page for a bright burst of color on a grey day. so much pretty stuff!

  5. Line Daems says:
