In the first chapter of her professional life, interior designer Paige Padon Jackson directed California-based Hollywood at Home, the decorating showroom of renowned interior designer Peter Dunham. Under her tenure, the shop amassed a fan following that included celebrities Ellen DeGeneres and Drew Barrymore, among others. It was during those West Coast days that Padon Jackson discovered the allure of vintage shopping. She loved procuring pieces with storied pasts and inherent personality and getting to know artisans from around the world, each with their own unique sense of style.
With a newfound love of treasure hunting and a refined sense of California style, Padon Jackson— who grew up in the Jupiter area—returned to her home state with her cinematographer husband and young son in 2007 and opened Row House. The boutique was originally located in West Palm Beach’s historic Northwood area, but earlier this year she relocated the business to Tequesta (she plans to open a new West Palm Beach location this fall).
Located on Tequesta Drive across from Casa Caña, Row House is a curio cabinet of exciting finds, filled with Padon Jackson’s thoughtfully cultivated collection of home goods and a tranquil, modern organic vibe that transports visitors to the serene Pacific Coast. “My aesthetic is very different than the typical Florida style,” says Padon Jackson. “I gravitate toward more neutral and saturated colors, and I love texture.”
She still finds the most joy uncovering unique items to add to the shop’s collective interior. “Sourcing is definitely my favorite part about owning a store,” she says. “I absolutely love finding new products, and I buy things for the shop that I would want in my own house. My favorite pieces right now are the hand-blocked pillows from India and the found jars that give a space so much depth and character.”
