I am so sorry that this blog post is going out so late. My second to last child had his graduation ceremony today. I though I was ready, but I soon found out their is no way to prepare for the madness that is graduation. While I felt very overwhelmed most of the day. I am still so proud of him for accomplishing what we all can remember as some of the most difficult four years of our life. If you know anyone who has graduated this year or if you yourself have graduated this year, then congratulations from all of us over here at Thavin & Marcob.
Today's blog if you haven't already guessed is about how we created what I believe to be a stunningly simple dressing room.
I bought an amazingly large and beautiful mirror at a discount store years back. When it came time to create our dressing room. I thought that I would be the perfect fit. Both for the style and for the fact that it is so big. It helps you to really decide if that piece of clothing is right for you. Sometimes it can be hard to decide if a certain new style of dress looks good with your body type. That was one of the main driving factors in me putting it in our dressing room. I wanted customers to feel that they were provided with the best possible atmosphere to make their shopping experience at Thavin & Marcob that more comfortable.
I ended up using a few different Iron pipers to make the bar that holds up our curtain. I did this for a few reasons. One the connectors create a more stable bar and two the connectors actually stop the carton from being opened all the way. Our shop is not that big leaving us with only one dressing room. Everyone is always welcome in our boutique and seeing as so. We wanted to make sure that any little ones exploring around our shop would not accidentally open the curtain completely.
,Choosing what we wanted the actually curtain to be was probably the hardest decision to make. When it came to designing the dressing room. After mush thought and research. I figured out that a drop cloth was exactly the thing I was looking for. It was the perfect solution. The drop cloth has no shadows through the fabric, does not darken the area, is easy to clean, and is easy to hang.
I have four metal chairs in the store. There's always a place to sit if you're looking for one.
These chairs fit perfectly within the stores decorating scheme. They however were not originally purchased with the intent to use them in the store. I wanted them to be used as outside chairs for our outside tables. Although once I noticed that they fit into our design concept perfectly. I was happy to take them and place them in our store. I placed one of them inside the dressing room. To make it a little more comfortable I added a white faux rug to it. I think the end result came out wonderfully.
The last thing we added to the dressing room was lighting. I wanted to make sure there was plenty of lighting in the dressing room. I did not want someone buying a piece of clothing because they thought it looked differently on them in different lighting. o I added what I believe to be a beautiful modern cooper colored hanging lamp. This way you are provided with an ampule amount of light, but still feel like you have plenty of space to twirl around in. I mean I am a grown adult and I still twirl around in the dressing room if I am trying on a flowy dress.
Let me know what do you guys think.
I would love to hear your thoughts and advice.
