Women In My Neighborhood - Azie from Verdigreen Home

In this new feature, Women In My Neighborhood, I recognize women in downtown Montclair, where I live and work, who inspire, educate, or work here as well. This first installment features Azie from Verdigreen Home, a family-owned and operated shop located at 182 Glenridge Avenue. It's home to local artisans and upcycled vintage décor, complimented by a do-it-yourself workshop where they stock Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and other related products, so fun! I asked Azie a few questions about what inspires her when she's consulting and designing. For more information about Verdigreen Home be sure to check out their...
