Favorite Things: Courtyard Interiors

Modern, traditional and European design influences blend inside Edmond’s homey Courtyard Interiors.


One of Courtyard Interiors’ primary charms is actually feeling like you might have wandered into someone’s home and not a store. This is due to not only the gentle mix of old and new, antique and modern, but the people that inhabit the store, as well. Owners Steve and Barbara Nix, together with manager Julie Jones, just have that certain way about them: approachable, at ease, friendly.

It’s not a surprise that the store they pour their efforts into has this feeling, too. Formerly known as Courtyard Antiques, the business has been around since 1999, and recently found a perfect spot at its new location of 15011 Bristol Park in Edmond. With attention to detail and a knack for good design, their aim is clear. “Our goal is to meet interior needs, whether they be modern, traditional or European,” explains Barbara. “All three designs work eclectically together to create a timeless, beautiful home.”

Twisted steel lamp, finished in plated antiqued brass with matching round drum shade, and glass foot, 28H, $369  “This is my favorite “transitional”-style lamp. Stunning.”

Boxwood in planter, $289 “This lush preserved boxwood is hand-made from natural boxwood that’s been specially treated to retain its glossy, deep green color and soft texture. A great home accent piece that will last year after year.”

Walnut French commode, circa early 1900s, $1,995 “In the 19th century, the chest of drawers was usually the finest piece of furniture made for a house. They were in demand in the Louis XIV period and continuing through modern times. When designing, we use these versatile commodes as entry pieces, bedside tables and even accent pieces for living spaces.”
