This week was a big few days at work. The seasonal changes with the new stories for the visual merchandising workshop was a massive challenge. My body was still in holiday mode, so it was great to get a real work out. Shamefully I realised how unfit I was but also glad I am back in the swing of things. Here’s a few stories that were created at the Visual Merchandising workshop:
I loved the use of crates in this story. Its got an industrial playfulness about it.
As much as we love colour there’s also a refreshing change when it comes to whites. Last year ‘white on white’ was on trend in the fashion glossy’s so its no surprise that its come through in homewares.
The understated chevron sheets really allow this display to reveal the complexity of the bed linen which is paired with a white on white look.
The fresh coastal vibe continues with mid tropical tones to portray a playful bohemian luxe vibe.
By friday the stores I assisted in were looking ship-shape and squeaky clean. The seasonal change brings on a kind of excitement to visual merchandisers and sales staff alike. Placing items in a new light and reinvigorating the customers.
Next week will be just as big. I’m looking forward to meeting my clients in Nth Qld to discuss interior design plans for a beautifully designed property that will be launched later this year. I spent some of the weekend compiling the last few items for my mood boards.
Saturday was THE best day of Arvi’s life! He got to see Thomas The Tank Engine… for real!
Ever since Arvi was given a train set, he’s been totally obsessed with anything train associated. He couldn’t believe his eyes when we pulled into the car park. As we walked over to the Workshops Museum Arvi started running and screaming about the trains. I could see little people running around like maniacs, with parents trying to keep up while lugging backpacks or pushing strollers. The sound was reminiscent to bee’s in the hive mixed with squealing and the odd tantrum.
I think Matt may have missed his calling as a gridiron player! The way he dodged prams, climbed over bench seating and shot into snag a photo opportunity like this all so I could take a snap of Arvi with Thomas was truly an extreme act of pure athleticism! …. but he forgot to open his eyes!
The thought of slogging it out at the Rail Museum didn’t really blow her hair back, so one of my friends took Ella for a day trip into South bank where she enjoyed participating on the activities on offer. Sunday was a little more Ella orientated when Matt took her for a fish and swim at Southport (while Arvi and I slept in…. until 7:00am )
The weekend has now passed and I’m pooped! Hope you have a great week ahead!
