Travel along 114 in Bristol and pass all kinds of charming small businesses — but wait, there’s more! Turn onto Constitution Street in the direction of the water to find a hanging sign that reads Sea Rose Cottage. No, it’s not a bed and breakfast, but a home interiors shop now in its tenth year, which is no small feat. People from all over New England find and visit Nancy Chace’s inspiring store lured by the products she carries, which include Annie Sloan, Annie Selke, Spicher & Co., and Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint, among others. Along with swatch libraries, there are books, brushes, Brimfield finds, and candles. There’s also a curated range of decorative hardware, so even if you’re not ready to paint a room or a dresser, you can still leave with something to transform your living space. Look for a second location opening soon on Spring Street in Newport.
