Shop Ideas

My sister and I had been discussing how we were going to decorate the window in the new shop for the opening. We had come up with lots of different, elaborate ideas until we saw this picture from a wedding on Our Blog of Love and it changed our minds completely. 

We've now bought a whole heap of white lanterns, which will hang in the front window in a cluster. We figured we have so much going on in the shop with wallpaper, striped walls and prints, that the simple white lanterns will look fabulous. What do you think?

I totally agree, sheer simplicity can make you stop in your tracks.

i like the idea. is there a background too of can people see into the shop? i'd love a fantastic wallpaper in guite neutral tone but that shows your signature look and then the lanterns. or, if the background is white, cover the floor between the wall and window with a gorgeous wallpaper.

good luck!

I think that the white lanterns will be lovely! They'll make a statement without detracting from the items in your store.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I agree Tiina, I think the lanterns need something behind them - wallpaper or even beautiful fabric.
