Our flagship Los Olivos Boutique turns 3..
We love the way back journeys, and here’s another. The “Before and After” story of our Waxing Poetic Boutique in Los Olivos, California (which experienced some major TLC before we opened our doors to the public in April 2010... read on!). It is every artist’s challenge, and dream: a blank canvas. For us, this space was it. A challenge and the most fun we have ever had (until we designed store #2 in Summerland!). The interior of the boutique consists of a mix of custom woodwork and fixtures that were crafted from locally milled and carved Santa Ynez walnut, Italian artifacts, warm antiques, and lively “frescoupage” wall panels. The “antiqued-up” décor and friend-crafted interior is a physical manifestation of imaginative artistry and unique craftsmanship of our jewelry. Check out the Before and Afters… The Main Floor: We paid homage to Patti’s familial and design roots and created an Italian inspired interior, combining the brand palette of mixed metals with the classical palette of oil paintings and old frescoes to come up with the color scheme. Local artisan crafted fixtures, industrial antiques, old book, & letters, Italian artifacts and some of Patti’s personal objects were combined to bring Waxing Poetic into the space.your invitation)
