The Wine Shop is Open! This was a wonderful Design Project I had the privilege to work on.
In November I wrote a post that I had been hired to help Design a Wine Shop and wondering if I should barter for my fee. No....I did not barter 'design for wine' but I have already purchased a few bottles!
The Shop opened right after Thanksgiving and business is thriving.
One thing the owner was able to do was put in a window in the back of the store. How is that for opening up the space! The window looks down 30 feet to the Mississippi River. Incredible views!
One of the favorite things I picked out was the carpet. Instead of standard boring commercial carpet, I worked with my favorite Flooring Store in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and found some overstock carpet which had ten times the quality for only cents per sq. foot more than the cheap stuff.
Plus.....there is no difference in the Classy Look it brings to the Shop.
The theme for the Shop was "Classy Up North Minnesota". With a mixture of stone, wood and tile we were able to create that feel.
The paint is three colors from the Ralph Lauren Suede Collection. How can you go wrong with Ralph Lauren?
Oh.....and did I mention the Wine Tastings that will be held upstairs in the Wine Tasting Lounge?
Check out Sunfish Cellars. Not only is it a great looking shop, the owner is extremely knowledgeable about wine!
