With the holidays upon us, there are two things circling people’s minds: gift shopping, and how to stay calm during the festive but hectic holiday season. Morningtide, a lifestyle shop in Albany, both inspires and anticipates these impulses.
The store is the passion project of Lisa Fontaine and Lisa Jackson. Located off lower Solano Avenue, the owners describe Morningtide as “minimal, modern, a little bohemian and functional with the ease of a lifestyle along the coast.”
This coastal lifestyle isn’t Santa Cruz sporty-surfy or Venice Beach glam-boho — it’s an ode to the Northern California-raised owners’ grounded, refined aesthetic.
