Many of you may not know this, but apart from being a kids room designer I also have a consulting & design business. I actually have a separate website for that part of my business. ( www.elizabethraub.com ) Working along clients who are either just starting out, or would like some fresh new insights as to how to run their business better or develop their product or idea. Last week I had the opportunity to meet with a new business start-up in Portland, OR. I will be working alongside the lovely Marcella to help her realize her plans for running and owning her own store.
“Inspired Boutique & Gifts” will be located in the heart NW 23rd and Raleigh area of Portland. You can bet I will be writing more about this client. I just got so excited to start talking, and post this pictures that captures Marcella’s buying style. She has an eye for fashion, style, elegance, fun, and hip all mixed into her showroom.
As with any new shop owner her brain is on fire. She is excited and merchandise is filling every corner of her shop waiting to be merchandised. With a July opening, we have a lot of work to do. She is going to pull all she has to make this happen and I get to come alongside to help. Like putting together her first window display. If you would take a moment to follow her on twitter @marcelladurr you can follow her progress.
Do you know what she is feeling right now? What kinds of things were going on your mind leading up to a major project? What words of encouragement might you offer Marcella.
If you live in Portland, OR send us a hello.
