Construction Zone Retail Windows

Friday, March 13th, 2015

A little road construction won’t get them down at Simplicity ABC! Open during construction on Park Lane in Kirkland WA, the retail staff decided to have some fun with a new themed window.

The business is located on Park Lane, currently undergoing a massive expansion project to increase the walkability of Downtown Kirkland, making it difficult for customers to reach the businesses, even though they are open during construction. A Suraphong Liengboonlertchai, owner of Simplicity ABC, thought it would be fun to create a window display that matched the street outside.

Retail Renovation Inspiration – Display Ideas

Display Inspiration: ROPE

Late last year, I had an inquiry from an island store who wants to update their retail décor to more of an upscale coastal feel.


The owners want to focus more on a coastal-theme and add more home décor products in hopes of increasing the average sale and expanding the local customer base.

The renovations won’t take place until next year, but I told them I would keep my eyes open for ideas to update the retail space, so that it appeals to local customers and still attracts the lucrative souvenir-seeking tourist market. I found some inspiration at Javier’s in the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I’ll be sharing the display inspiration journey on the blog and documenting the renovations in 2016. Input welcome! Leave suggestions in the comments and be sure to click LIKE at the top of the post so I will know you stopped by. Thanks. Stay display inspired!

Bonus picture. I am working on my photo skills and I am pleased to have spotted this view of several rooms through a little window.

Valentine display ideas to Love, Luv and <3

Sunday, January 4th, 2015

The New Year’s confetti is barely swept up and it’s time to think about Valentine’s Day in the retail world. Luckily for visual merchandisers, Valentine’s displays are some of the least complicated to create. Here are some of our favorites for your display inspiration.

Creating an interactive window is a great way to bring people in your store. Include a sign near the spot so that customers can tag your store on social media sites. Foursided in Chicago nailed it with this lighted marquee heart window!

Quality window graphics attract attention and bring customers in for a closer look.

Visual Merchandising Tips: showroom inspirations and store display ideas

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

I’m reviewing display pictures for some visual merchandising projects for 2015. Three distinct themes are evident from the thousands of display examples we gathered during hundreds of store visits this year: nautical, monochromatic and texture. We will explore these themes in detail and share retail displays, but today’s post comes from a wholesale showroom during the Las Vegas Market at World Market Center.

RD-LOF-Vegas2014-6The Margot Elena companies and collections – which include Lollia Life, Love & Toast, Tokyo-Milk and Library of Flowers – were presented in a space so lovely we visited two days in a row to get more pictures.


RD-LOF-Vegas2014-5Our photographer thought these dip-dyed sling props suspended by thin ball chains were made from vertical window blinds, but in touching them, I don’t think so. However, I am planning to try this with blinds soon. Framing the display with the watercolors from the products’ packaging creates a cohesive presentation. I’m not usually a fan of such symmetrical displays, but in this case, it works!


RD-LOF-Vegas2014-3The simplicity of the unfinished wood fixtures and natural accents allow the products to speak for themselves. This is a lovely example of using multiples to enhance the visual merchandising story.


RD-LOF-Vegas2014-2The impact of color in displays: GOLD was the perfect choice! I can’t wait to try something like this in a nautical display. It is begging for a red, white & blue sailboat incarnation.

Nice job visual team. We can’t wait to see what you come up with for the next round of trade shows.

Stay display inspired! ~Becky
