La Cistella Herboristeria in Valencia, Spain, specializes in selling herbal supplements, floral essences, teas, and natural cosmetics. Created by architect Mariana Senabre Rock of firm  La Buhardi , the rustic, all-white interior provides the perfect backdrop for showcasing herbal colors, scents, and textures. From its crating shelves to its basket lights, the shop is filled with economical ideas worth replicating at home. For more information, visit  La Cistella Herboristeria on Facebook.
