It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

This week we celebrate our 3 year anniversary.  We are all grown up now….so grown up in fact that we have a newly constructed wall in our showroom that doubles as a storefront window display wall.  So you know what that means…..be on the lookout for creative and inspirational window displays.  And being that time of the year is approaching so quickly, our first display is a Christmas window!

It’s a very simple, yet sophisticated Christmas display.  The wall is painted in a very nontraditional shade of Christmas green.  For those of you wondering, we used Sherwin Williams’ “Organic Green” as our backdrop.  Painted on top are crisp white silhouettes of trees.  Hanging in front of the wall are over 100 hand-drawn, painted and glittered cardstock ornaments.  We used traditional ornament shapes, but also couldn’t resist creating ornaments shaped like a “W”!  We feel that the simplicity and glamour of our window reflects Livable. High Fashion. Comfort.

We were inspired by window displays from both a national and local level.  Baton Rouge’s Stella Boutique’s fall window display inspired the hanging ornaments.

Also, we love every single display that Anthropologie has created.  They like to use everyday objects and turn them into amazing displays of creativity and whimsy.  This inspired us to create our own ornaments from cardstock, which was just lying around, instead of purchasing store-bought ones, which would have definitely been the easy way out!  We love the idea of using what you have to create something beautiful.

So come to River Ranch and take a stroll around Main Street and the surrounding areas.  While you are there, take a peek at our window and stop in to say hello!

Yummy design!

There’s not much we love more than design… except when it comes to food! And better yet, why not just combine the two! We love how these delicious looking cupcakes inspired the design for this chair and pillow. It looks so fresh and natural. Our designers would love design a whole house, just inspired out of our favorite foods! Can you say gumbo or crawfish? That would make for one yummy design!
