I was walking on the alarmingly vacant, but still toney Newbury St Saturday night and was drawn to this store like a magnet. Place is called AllSaints, and I never heard of it. They sell clothing, but this is their store front (wish I had a better camera).
Have a closer look
Sewing machines for a clothing store...I thought it was brilliant. At Yale, we do not have pedestrian traffic, so we use color to enhance the store experience at the front door. I love using color as a design feature. In my amateur opinion, color personalizes the interior, and also creates a more fun and informal space.
If a clothing company can throw sewing machines in a store front, certainly you can be a little more bold in designing your space.
Wouldn't you say?
