Arts District Welcomes a New Home Decor Store

In downtown Las Vegas’ Arts District, a new retail establishment has recently launched its doors.

Named Spilled Milk, this home décor boutique was established by interior designer Kori Cortez and can be found at 1407 S. Commerce St., in close proximity to Off the Threads and Alt Rebel vintage clothing outlets.

In a press release, Cortez revealed that her decision to launch the store stemmed from being laid off from her cybersecurity job at the close of 2023.

“I’ve always had a passion for design, décor, and rejuvenating spaces,” Cortez expressed in a statement. “It’s something I pursued on the side because it also revitalized me. While I excelled in cybersecurity, the unexpected loss of my job made me realize that it was time to seize control of my own future and dedicate myself fully to this endeavor. It’s a significant leap of faith, but as I’ve come to understand, so is relying on an employer.”

The store provides a diverse selection of contemporary home décor, spanning from essential furnishings like accent chairs and cabinets to more distinctive items like jaguar plant holders, stylish crystal barware, Parisian serving trays, wall art, sculpted pieces by London-based designer Abigail Ahern, and exclusive creations from local potter Stuck on Pottery.

“Las Vegas possesses a unique charm unlike any other city. I aimed to curate distinctive pieces that add a touch of elegance to modern homes in an unconventional manner,” remarked Cortez.

The store operates six days a week and is closed on Tuesdays.

The Arts District is experiencing ongoing expansion, with numerous apartment units currently in development, many of which include retail spaces. For instance, Southern Land Co. is constructing a 337-unit project near the intersection of South 3rd Street and East California Avenue. Additionally, the Midtown mixed-use project is being developed north of the district, while the Flats Arts District, a $180 million project, is poised to introduce 311 units to the area.
