I have always loved a good awning on a storefront. I’m mostly drawn to striped versions, but I love really unique and clever ones, too. Awnings typically cover doors and windows, creating a great cover for outdoor seating. They are both eye-catching and functional, and instantly I’m transported to locations like Paris or London, with their charming awning-covered cafes and storefronts.
The 10 awnings I’ve rounded up today showcase beautiful materials and designs that make me so happy. If you know of a storefront with a great awning, tag it with #dsstorefronts on Instagram. We’d love to have a look. And if I see a striped, scalloped awning, my heart might just explode! Enjoy! —Erin
