Have you’ve snapped enough pictures of the sugar-white beaches and the rolling tide of the Emerald Coast? If so, we’ve got you covered with some fun and different locations to share on social media. Here are our favorite Grand Boulevard (@grandboulevard) store interiors that are guaranteed to have your Instagram feed looking Insta-Grand. See what we did there?
Altar’d State (@altardstate) is Instagram worthy because it is absolutely stunning. It offers a place of respite and a distinctive shopping experience. The company seeks to inspire through action and supports a mission of standing out for good in the world. You’ll find that message weaved throughout as you browse the stylish collections, and make your way to the back of the store. But, what’s sure to get your followers double-tapping, is the foyer leading to the dressing rooms. Painted into it are prayer requests submitted by shoppers. This intimate detail, along with uniquely textured walls, shimmering chandeliers, and plush pillows, makes for an impressive backdrop.
Their branding states, “Be Bold, Be Beautiful, Be Confident, Be Unique, Be You.” And, while you might already own a diamond ring or gold necklace, you’ve never purchased jewelry from a store quite like The Jewel (@thejewelgrandboulevard). The centerpiece of the store is a massive Ashley Longshore (@ashleylongshoreart) painting that embodies the branding message of love and celebration. Many of the collections at The Jewel are hand-made by the designers. Owner and proprietor, Lisa Peters, encourages visitors to feel and try on the jewelry that speaks to them. Add to your Instagram feed, and perhaps your jewelry collection, shots of dainty bangles, intricate detailing, and gorgeously treated metals that will have your followers commenting, “Where can I get that?”
Anthro, as its loyal customers so lovingly shorten it, is on our list because of the boho-chic and chill vibes. Offering women’s apparel, accessories, beauty products, and coming in Fall 2019, custom made-to-order furniture. Anthropologie (@anthropologie) caters to a creative lifestyle that sets you, and your Instagram story, apart from the masses. Head towards the middle of the store and be greeted by huge potted plants and wall art. Journey further back and meet three papier-mache flamingos you’ll be clamoring to capture the perfect shot of. A place where you can lose – and find – yourself, this location boasts high ceilings, distinctive décor, and enough space to style the ultimate shot ideal for reposting.
Bonus location! Check out and check-in to the new Hyatt Place Sandestin at Grand Boulevard. The 5-story, 84 room hotel features an intuitive design, casual atmosphere, plus artwork and paintings from local artists. Bring your followers along as you relax in the Cozy Corner, lounge by the pool, and dine on delicious light options and savory snacks.
