summer store displays!

i’m so excited to show you our new summer store displays now that they’ve been installed in all of our stores! these photos are from the opening of our new houston galleria store.

here at the navy yard our display team gets to work painting straw baskets! these photos make you realize just how much hard work and crafting they do…




ombre rope dying for what will be a very cool part of the display!




welcome to houston!


the new store space is like a blank canvas about to be brought to life.


the display team works their magic with the ombre rope to create an amazing macrame wall installation!





the opposite wall is adorned with this incredible rope tapestry pieced together with yarn, pom-poms and trims from india.



the delicate “sari dori” display that drapes from the ceiling is made of strips of fabric from indian saris strung together.



i love all the beautiful dark wood.


the bottoms of the baskets have been painted with neon colors and hung on the walls and above the cash-wrap as lights! so awesome.




they’re also great for holding plants :) which leads me to my favorite part of the new displays…


the window display, where these incredible swings live! i would kill to have one of these at my beach house. i mean really…




so beautiful.  and stay tuned, because i have not one but two amazing pieces of the summer displays to give away on the blog… trust me, you don’t want to miss this one ;)

I have the cream dress with the flowers in the display window. What is the mannequin wearing under the dress? It’s too low by itself and I love that color!

I work at FP hollywood and had such a blast setting up the summer install! So much work goes into designing the sets and then actually setting them up in-store! I love the creative process, it’s such an amazing experience to be a part of!! :D
