We have been working this year on the interior design of a women’s retail clothing store. It is a locally owned, one of a kind and it is going to be awesome! I am really excited about how cool it is going to be.
For example, our lighting is going to look like this:
Wallpaper like this:
Mirrors like this:
Millwork like this:
Cash Wrap like this:
Maybe you can start to get the picture. I can’t wait for it all to go in. But, you know what put the biggest smile on my face to date? This:
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians)
This one is a little harder to read ”In all toil there is profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty” (Proverbs). The woodwork is filled with Bible verses to inspire. I first heard about this concept when I read Leah Richardson’s book: Interior Wisdom.
She talks about writing Bible verses on the interiors of her client’s homes before the sheet rock goes up. I thought it was a really neat idea, but then it slipped my mind. How cool that my client thought to do that as well. Establishing a firm foundation for your business is always a great idea. And, I know she has strong faith, because this is what the house/future retail boutique looked like the first time I saw it:
So, great progress is being made and the plan is for a grand opening in July. The original architecture of the home is being maintained.
The interiors pretty much had to be gutted, but the exterior footprint stays the same.
We will be sure to share final photos once the store is open for business. I can tell you, I am going to be one of the first customers in line to support this local business. I’ll be sure to share the details so you can be, too!
