A New Window









Today we worked on a new display in our front window at Black & Spiro. We wanted it to be fresh and colourful and eye catching. This is our last window before our very exciting Christmas window which will be installed in a few weeks time. We wrapped bits of remnant fabric around birdcages and hung them in front of a gorgeous bright pink and white and black floral fabric. It always makes me feel so happy when we have installed a fresh new window at the shop...

I always am inspired to open the door of a shop by it's window display. It's a thrill to plan them, install them and see people's reactions.

Long live Visual Display!

Hi, I have been having so much fun following your blog. The textile on the back ground is stunning! What is the repeat and who makes it? It's very Palm Beach, as we say here.

I need that yellow peacock chair!!! Is that an old one you've had painted? Pruxxx P.S. The rest of the window is wonderful too. So off beat and a little wild. I love it!Px

I LOVE this window! It reminds me of a window display for a paper shop using bird cages and Japanese paper. My son was three at the time and he commented, "Look Mommy, its self contained self control!" I have been pondering that one for a long time. (he's 13 now!) Your display makes me want to try....Love your sense of color!

Fun Yellow Chair!! I picked one up online for $25 and painted it white with some awesomely bright fabric! Love it and love your style!

Style Maniac said...

I had one of those fan chairs as a little girl ... but in boring old rattan. Wish I had thought to save it and paint it a wonderfully bright color, like that great sunshine yellow.

girloliver said...

I NEED that chair! Love your window. I second hello*lucky*holly's sentiments - open an online store please! And make shipping to the US cheap ;)
Nice job!
