Take Heart

    Located next to The Blue Dahlia, one of Austin’s brilliant bistros, Take Heart contributes to East 11th Street’s cozy flow with its inviting atmosphere and inspiring decor. Its floor to ceiling windows cast an alluring light on the carefully selected gifts and homeware items, made up of warm woods, pristine pottery, brilliant books and soft scents, which inspire the familiar feeling of home in all who arrive at its door. Though Take Heart is an attestation to all things beautiful and well designed, it also stands as a prime example of courage and fortitude. Owner Nina Gordon launched the shop while juggling a draining career in social work, after being inspired to conquer her fears and embrace her creativity through the guidance of a book that she now sells, called The Artist’s Way. Her instinctual curation, marvelous taste and sense of aesthetics express the unbounded creativity that for many years lay dormant inside of her. Though her days in social work may come to an end, Gordon will continue her support for the health of her community by providing inspiration through this new venture. Show lessRead more
