New shop, Neighborhood, features ‘design bar,’ local artists

Erin Hossley and Shannon Dwyer of Neighborhood

Neighborhood, the newest shop to open in Bishop Arts, offers interior design services, along with books, gifts and work from local artists.

Husband-and-wife owners Erin and John Paul Hossley are interior designers, and they wanted a storefront that would invite browsers to their design services. Their “design bar” offers a menu of services that includes remodel/renovation consultation ($50/hour) and cabinetry/mill-work design ($75/hour), among many others.

“We wanted to do something that was not intimidating,” says Shannon Dwyer, an in-house designer at Neighborhood. “People can sit at our design bar and see what we have to offer.”

The studio commissions designs from local furniture makers Gary Buckner, Sean Springer and Dan Phillips. And they carry work from local artists, including Kevin Obregon, Cabe Booth and Taylor McClure.

They also carry coffee-table books on design, art and bicycles, as well as stationery, candles and home accessories.

“Anything that makes us laugh or we think is cool, we put it out,” Erin says.

The shop opened about two weeks ago, across the alley from Eno’s. They’re closed Mondays, open 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Sundays.
