what could have been


at the store, i had to do all of the building upfit myself.

the budget was strettttched to cover just the basics, so no real design stunners emerged in the execution of it.

with the money concerns, and my super tight turnaround, i didn't get to sit down with my favorite images and create the dream rooms i would have in a perfect world.

i remembered this image today, and had a 'why didn't i do that' moment. that blue wallcovering is oh-so-thom-filicia, and would have made me fantastically happy. but at least my paint is blue. and my client chairs are ghost armchairs, and my desk has sassy legs like this. my bathroom mirror is a similar style and thanks to my mom, there are plants galore.

a picture you say? certainly. as soon as it's ready. patience grasshoppers.

The beauty of it is...you can change stuff up as time goes on. You could always do something like this down the road. I can't wait to see pictures of your space, I bet it looks great!

The Phillip Starke ghost chair is amazing! It’s on my most wanted/must have list! I just posted that pic the other day! I don't know if it was a coincidence, but if not then I am thrilled to have inspired! :):) Best of luck in pursuing your entrepreneurial dream! I am 25 and dream of having my own store one day. One day...

I ran by the store yesterday and saw the light fixtures through the window (from the other side of the raod!). They're huge and AWESOME!

Don't sweat it...I built my store out on a BUDGET, all white walls, FLOR tiles, kitchen depot stainless tables, and you know what? Now the product sings, not the decor, and I totally love that.

I agree with Le Owner. If I go into a store and it's all tarted up, I figure the prices are going to be bad and I need to leave.

Wish I lived nearby for a visit would be top of the list ASAP! Otherwise, personality of the shop owner matters more than fancy $$ in the decor vs items. Besides, don't some things get to wait for seasoning down the road? Best of luck! P.S. The building is zingy as are the lamps. It'll be stunning, I'm sure! You must be pooped, and that does cloud one's vision.
