My last project at BRR was to develop a store. In the basement. Super fun!

The project was to show a particular group of clients what the possibility for improvement was within their college campus bookstores and how they could utilize resources they already possessed (along with a few inexpensive purchases) to create a unique and changeable experience for their student body. With the trend of purchasing books online, digital books, and easy access to articles via search engines, most bookstores are struggling with how to adapt and still be able to connect with and serve their target consumer. We selected a local school to use for the mock-up and created a shop-able space for our clients to experience. Enjoy!




Most of what was purchased was the merchandise so that we could make it feel as if it was fully stocked. The rest of the display techniques were created with items that I found in our basement or had lying around my house. From start to finish, it took a little over a week to develop and construct.

Inspired by a lovely set of Thomas Paul dishes that I stumbled across on Design Sponge this morning, I finally finished the Surf Lodge palette! The plates are of course Thomas Paul (although I have to admit that I played around with the actual blue color!), the delicious treat was created and photographed by the talented Aran Goyoaga, and the bar image is from the Surf Lodge in  Montauk, NY. Happy Tuesday!

In 2006, I worked on a group project that involved taking a musical piece and using it as inspiration to create a 9’x9′ “box”. This was our first experience will full scale design. I was both the Construction Manager and Project Manager. To this day, it remains one of my most favorite and memorable projects! P.S. we actually broke the rules slightly in our construction…we were asked to have the box completely enclosed…not one professor complained though!

In the fall 2007 I had an amazing time working with a lovely team of creatives at my local Anthropologie! I took was selected for an internship with their in-store holiday design team and spent the next three months developing and producing some awesome holiday displays!



What you are seeing is hundreds of HAND-sewn mittens and stockings that we then attached to yarn covered rope lights to created a glowing canopyof wintery goodness, high above the central cashwrap!


For the windows, we cut out a million, paper snowflakes by hand and used a sewing machine to create long, glittery strands which went up in the HUGE front windows! So much fun!

On of my more recent projects was to create a very specialized retail experience centered around a type of food preparation. I did a similar project a few years ago that was centered around a specific ingredient or food type (I did comfort food). This one was all about the gourmet baker. Primarily designed for the female consumer, age group 18-45, this store concept proved that anyone can achieve a gourmet status on their culinary creations, independent of the amount of time they have. It was to sell everything from pre-made delicacies to specialized ingredients and tools and was (hypothetically) located in downtown Cincinnati. These are the concept boards that were developed.
