Carrie Schoenbaum, owner of Wildwood Home Company

WHEN DAVID and Carrie Schoenbaum uprooted their family during the Great Recession and headed east from SoCal, they hadn’t planned on renovating the only Zionsville home they could afford at the time – a repairman seized and flooded – would spark a love for home improvement. Fast-forward a decade: The couple have transformed the former Ballerinas & Bruisers space into the Wildwood Home Company, a decor boutique disguised as a breezy abode. The open floor plan allows shoppers to enter through a sun-drenched living room, then flows into a vignette kitchen with dreamy reactive glazed stoneware, European-made pine charcuterie boards, and marble fixtures. Signs of Carrie’s coastal upbringing abound, from hand-woven seagrass baskets to throw pillows in muted blues and greens. Deliberately, the atmosphere is relaxed. Design curious can get advice by posting a photo on their phone. Those with a little more cash can opt for home-style sets for spaces of all sizes, even for built-in displays and coffee tables.
