Feel like your home needs a little sprucing? The Scandinavian-inspired shop Miljuu (pronounced mil-you) is full of various home goods that range from planters and vases to artwork and home decor. Derived from the Danish word miljø, which means environment, the husband and wife owners focus on bringing timeless Danish design to the U.S. through their Seattle shop.
