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.

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

 

 

 

 

 

Fancy’s Southern Chic Decor & Display Ideas

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

Sometimes visual merchandising inspiration pops up when you least expect it. In a continuing effort to EAT & SHOP LOCAL, we stumbled on a gem in Ft. Myers, Florida. Fancy’s Southern Cafe’ is tucked away in the back of a shopping plaza and hardly looks “fancy” from the street, but once inside, I could not get my camera out fast enough to get some pictures!

The horizontal door suspended by ropes and  pulleys is clever, welcoming and great for daily specials and social media.

A feature wall greets you as you walk into the front dining area from the entrance and bar area. Old windows have loads of charm and work well in retail settings. Here’s the “before” picture that shows the layout of the frames:

Around the corner is the wall with the restrooms. Problem: The restroom doors are too visible from the dining area. Solution: Hang some more doors from ropes and pulleys. Beautifully executed and problem solved!

Here’s what the doors are blocking and note the cabinet doors and drawer-fronts that cover the wall:

 Here’s what it looks like from the back dining area:

Note the detail on the ceiling and the mason jar chandelier in the main dining room:

And yes, we put the camera away and enjoyed a nice meal. I highly recommend the spicy cole slaw and the made-from-scratch mac & cheese! We are going back to enjoy the lovely bar area – will go early so we can get pics there – and for dessert which I hear is made daily, on site.

Note: Several areas were too busy for me to get good pictures, so I included some additional images on their Facebook page. All “before” pictures are from Fancy’s facebook page and website.

A store display idea that’s sure to “catch” on.

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Store window display HOW-TO: Retail Details blog. Approximate cost to create a similar display $100-$150.

SwirlMarketing.com_retail_details_blog_store_display_ideas

What a Catch!

Pictured: Christian Louboutin shoes and accessories – What A Catch!

Supplies: At least 4 jumbo fishing hooks. The 3-pronged versions are called treble hooks and can be found for $20 and up. Colored rope to use as fishing line. Any rope will do, but ski rope comes in fun colors and costs about $24 for the amounts as shown in this picture.

Alternate idea #1: use dog leashes as the ropes since they already have a clasp on the end.

Alternate idea #2: use a small boat or dinghy as the floor of the display

Alternate idea#3: Suspend winter products above jumbo ice blocks. Additional props: igloo and icicles.

Alternate idea #4: suspend the hooked merchandise above a kiddie pool for a summer display of toys, beach towels, sunglasses, hats or flip flops. Additional props: beach balls and sand pails.

You are welcome to use the comments area of the blog to brainstorm more ideas regarding this display idea.

Stay display inspired!
