After you've taken care of your shop's name, logo, sign and genre. Whew!! ... Set the vibe for your customers as soon as they enter the door. It keeps them interested and sets the tone for the rest of their shopping experience. Make use of colors that pop. Below, the color Turquoise is our "pop". (If you follow Pottery Barn Teen, you know their spring/summer catalog made good use of turquoise. Do some homework and rely on experts and their ideas.) Your products may help you decide what your color palette should be. Also keep in mind the current and upcoming seasons and how your use of color will blend in (or not) with the following season.

I have a favorite little shop in my neighborhood which has me come by every so often to help design their displays. They've been renovating their store and have really put me to good use over the last couple of months. Today, we decided to photograph my morning's work. I set up a fall/Halloween scene inside an antique bed and underneath a country chandelier. Wowsa! I think it's terrific - The owner of the boutique loves my on the spot creativity. I think we'll be doing lots of projects together!
