On a slightly different note, I want to thank everyone who left a comment or sent an email in response to last week’s Working Designer Wednesday post. I had so many designers say “yes!” to the idea of a panel discussion…which means I’m in the process of putting the plan together and will let you know the details very soon. You all mean so much to me and your passion for your businesses inspires me to keep on writing posts.

Have a great Wednesday!

    I love the 13th from the top by Bastian & Skoog. It’s minimal and yet very impactful. From what we can see in the photo, the colors and overall tone are perfectly suited to the space. And, it doesn’t look like a retail display at a flower shop the way some of these do (no offense – they’re all beautiful) – instead it seems very well thought out.

  2. So many breathtaking ideas! But I absolutely love the ones by Kris Kan and KG Design.

  3. I am really taken by the Bastian & Skoog design. All beautiful designs. In our rural area, to find a building like that would be rare, and to find a client to be bold like that rarer still. Someday…
