YOU MIGHT TAKE the name literally. Guesthouse (1135 34th Ave, 206-462-1351;, the decor studio in Madrona, would make a stylish home base for any day-tripper.

[Update: Guesthouse is no longer located in Madrona.]

Kate Link, Guesthouse’s shopkeeper, offers custom-upholstered seating, fan coral sourced from some foreign sea, and curtain tiebacks made from cowboy boot spurs. Cross the street to Natalie Anderson’s Driftwood consignment shop (1130 34th Ave, 206-941-6828; for gently used Marc Jacobs tops. Then stroll south to Hitchcock Madrona (1406 34th Ave, 206-838-7173; to pick up a silk-wrapped necklace from Erica Sheehan and Dustin Nelson’s forward-thinking accessories boutique before returning to Link’s makeshift 
pied-à-terre to play with your finds.
