The newest home furnishings shop in Newport Beach, Heirloom at Wescliff Court features vintage treasures, mostly Hollywood Regency style, collected by owner Milena Sefferovich. Three years ago on a whim, while living in Phoenix, Sefferovich drove a truck to Pasadena filled with her vintage pieces and sold everything at the Rose Bowl Flea Market her first day. She was on to something great. Shoppers loved her eye for sophisticated one of-a-kind pieces, lighting, lacquered and refinished furniture (she refinished woods herself) and affordable glamour.
Today she’s the proud owner of Heirloom, where she can display her design aesthetic and rare finds. Each one she loves and feels torn to part with: an old scaffold base converted into a dining room table, a Spanish revival settee, custom throw pillows, art, vases, and a vintage bar cart. At Heirloom, the prices are such that you won’t be buying just one piece and saving up for the next. Sefferovich’s goal is to price pieces so that you’ll want to keep returning and bring your friends.
Open 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Shedding Light on Art
The Shed, a new fine art gallery in Dana Point housed at the Clapboard Arcadian, is the brainchild of local resident Sue Osborne. She transformed the former wholesale nursery space and created a destination art gallery, next OC Beads and the Coop, an all-American country store. She credits her work in commercial design for giving her an artistic eye, and when she met celebrated expressionist artist Michael Ruffini and saw his vibrant works their collaboration took off.
The Shed’s creative director Ruffini, a 30-year year painter and sculptor curates the gallery’s art and sculpture including renowned expressionist painters and sculptors.
Current featured artists include Michael Ruffini, Michael Moon, Dray, Gideon Cohen, Hans Ladislaus, Nick Arciero, and Mai-Linh Diep.
The Shed’s exhibit changes every 30 days, always with an opening night so the guests can meet featured artists. Osborne and Ruffini are also working on a sculpture garden, where they are planning to showcase musical performances and book readings.
Open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday; 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
The Shed, a Fine Art Gallery is at 24471 Del Prado Ave. in Dana Point. 949.429.5591
