BESS RICE STUDIO
A closet area was revamped to include a storage cabinet and a suede covered display area.
Since direct lighting through the walls wasn't possible, cloth wrapped cords with stiff wire was used to access outlets, creating a wild vine effect.
Old windows were hung behind window displays as backing to allow the interior shop more light.
Antique furnishings are easy to work with the backdrop of old windows.
Large candle chandeliers and long wool and silk trimmed curtains, offer an elegance to the shop.
1930's retail display cases were found at a recycling yard and used in the primary space plan. Plaster tinted soft green walls give an old world feel.
