Retail Re-Design

Posted by on Mar 15, 2014 in blog | 0 comments

I’m working on a few retail store re-designs lately and I’m rather enjoying it! I usually only work on residential projects but I did study marketing and merchandising at Uni and have worked in visual merchandising in the past so I’m enjoying getting back into it. Here’s a little peek at the to-do list I’ll be sending off to a retail client very soon. She’s ready to roll up her sleeves and get things done to turn around her store and I can’t wait to see the finished result. Love a client that’s itching to get started & put in the required hard work…I can only do so much!

To-Do Lists Are Fun!

It’s amazing how someone else entering your store can provide so many ideas you may not have thought of, a new set of eyes brings a whole different perspective and sometimes it’s only tiny changes that have the biggest impact.

If you’d like help re-designing your retail store shoot me an email for more information.

Oh and you’ll leave with a fabulous goodie bag!

How To: Refresh Your Sofa

New Cushions = Instant Facelift

New Cushions = Instant Facelift

Cushions above are available from Nest Designs Online Store

1. More is More – in my book, the less is more rule can never apply to cushions so pile them high!

2. Matchy Matchy No No – live a little and try mixing patterns. Keep one colour consistent in the patterns but mix it up with small scale prints and large bold patterns.

3. Texture is Everything – layer different textures for an instant luxurious feel. Linen with velvet is my favourite mix.

What’s your favourite brand of cushions?
