For my space planning class we are all in charge of planning a retail space and we can pick any store we like. My partner is a yoga fanatic so we decided to have yoga products and I am fasinated with all the new organic products that are coming out so we are featuring all organic products as well. Our inspiration comes from this london based store.It’s so beautiul and simple and wonderful.
They have food stores, yoga studios, greenhouses, beauty products and just about every ogrganic product you can think of.Serene I love the green grass boxes. We will be using htem in our store. The only nerve racking thing is that we have to build a scaled model of the whole retail space. Not really sure how we’ll recreate a miniture version. For now I’ll just enjoy the pictures.
I had to prepare a PowerPoint for my Principles of Design class concerning Space. I chose to focus on how to make a small room appear larger. There are several tips I have learned through my research that I thought I would share.
Leaving your windows uncovered is a great way to make a room appear more spacious. When you cover your windows with heavy window treatments you are creating more distractions and clutter while also blocking useful light.
This is a before and after shot of a small space in an apartment. Notice how adding a fireplace with a mirror makes the room appear much larger than it is. Mirrors are your best friend in a small space.
Love the Blue Sofa
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE those blue ottomans. I am obsessed with them. My birthday is next month so you can keep them in mind.
Light blue and red are so pretty.
Look how good the light blue looks with pink. I’m not sure about that crazy chair but I guess it could work.One word. LOVE!!! Sarah Jessica Parker’s house in the Hamptons. That blue light fixture is just popping out of the picture! Not only is this a great picture but it is a great idea. So much blue so little time. all pictures via Domino, Elle Decor and Flickr

I am not sure what the technical name for this kind of tile is but I like it. Checkerboard tile is a classic. I love it in a kitchen or bathroom. The great thing about black and white tile is that it lends so much opportunity to insert color!
Here are some great examples.Entryway Hallway
