Shop the Southwest

The Blue Door opened in July in the former Sally’s Flower Shoppe building

Home décor and furnishings store The Blue Door opened in July in the former Sally’s Flower Shoppe building on Camp Bowie Boulevard. The Sally’s sign remains, but gone is the bright pink facade. The new exterior reflects the new findings inside — Southwestern-inspired home goods sourced by owner and local interior designer Jericka Childress. Jericka says she opened the store with her husband, Mark, after seeing a void in the market for her aesthetic — a modern eclectic and transitional style.

The building still has a flare for the bright, thanks to the blue front door made from 80-year-old barn wood and hand-forged wrought iron hardware. Blue doors — a signature of New Mexico homes — are thought to keep out evil spirits and serve as protection.

Jericka sources one-of-a-kind, artisanal products like African mud cloths, Chinese calligraphy brushes, antique rugs and handmade pottery and baskets.
