Shopping for shoes in Atlanta is an experience in and of itself, but the designers at Established Architecture have proven that retail design will make a huge impact on your experience. The redesign of Wish, a very hip Atlanta shoe boutique, has allowed the store to keep it's urban streetwear credibility while bringing in high-fashion labels. Monthly sales have increased 400% since launch. Design is an investment with a good return when it's done right.
From the outside you would never know the gorgeous experience that awaits you as step down the stairs into the basement... The white glowing resin boxes make a huge statement while drawing your eyes to the vibrant displays. The shoes are perched on top like works of art, making this destination a style-lovers emporium.
Undercabinet lighting is perfect for illuminating products, but also decor items in the home as well. Surrounding the lit shelving, walls are lined with books, perfectly placed and piled. Hopefully, hipster shoppers will make the connection between stye and well-read. It's a brilliant display concept, don't you think?!
The bright and cheery upstairs also demonstrates very innovative design. The surrounding raw plywood creates a calming feel, allowing the displays and clothing to really stand out. Clusters of mini-pendant lights are perfect for creating special lighting effects.
Custom hanging rods and shelves line the walls in a clever and sculptural way. They create visual interest, but are not so overpowering that they take away from the goods on display.
A well planned and executed design is a huge part of the retail experience (and the shop's sales apparently). So if you happen to be in the planning stages, remember that investment in design can generate a huge return!
Halloween pumpkin carving is usually about the orange and black, but this year let's make Halloween a little more stylish... and modern of course. Let's make it all about black, white and some bits of gold!
If you don't want to deal with the ooo-ey goo-ey mess of pumpkin guts, painting pumpkins is a great way to go! Create modern Halloween decor by styling your house with a monochromatic collection of either black or white pumpkins. Clusters of black and white modern outdoor chairs would be great on the front porch, making the cool pumpkins company!

Or, let the artist in you shine and go with gorgeous modern patterns, such as having black paint drip over a white pumpkion or the modern herringbone pattern. If you're looking for some inspiration for patterns, take a look at these images of modern gothic architecture (below).
The shapes and patterns found in Modern Gothic Architecture are sure to inspire some stylish Halloween decor! The gorgeous shapes found in the ceiling in the first image are breathtaking.
The silhouette of the Doimo in Milan (image 2) is quite eery against the dark cloudy sky. The negative and positive space in this photo is more than stunning and would be a striking work of art on your handpainted pumpkin! Inspiration from stained glass (image 3) is another great form of inspiration! This stained glass in Wim Delvoye's window is actually made out of x-rays. little creepy right?
Hope you're enjoying this fun holiday season! Make sure to make it stylish... and modern!

No, your eyes are not deceiving you. This is the most modern dollhouse we've ever seen too!
Designer Elaine Shaw from South-East London, made this modern dollhouse by hand. Just a tenth of the size of a real home, the intricate three-story model features a mini iMac, X-BOX, flat screen TV and Art Deco paintings. No doubt, these dolls live the good life.
Besides the attention to cool modern furniture, which you don't normally find in a dollhouse, the details are amazing!... Like the beverage on the side table, near the gray chair (below).
Want that modern dollhouse dining room in your own home? We can help....

Higher power gives way to high end design in these chic church renovations. So how do you turn a house of worship into a modern home? Take a look at the examples below for divine inspiration, and then get yourself a realtor who's in thick with the cloistered crowd.
If cleanliness is next to godliness, the minimalist decor of this Brisbane, Australia, converted church (pictured above and below) will make a believer out of most anyone.
The bathroom below all but erases the heritage of the space by mixing black and white finishes with a dramatic chandelier. Now that's a case of intelligent design.
You can achieve a similiar lighting look with the Jonathan Adler Meurice Brass Robert Abbey Chandelier.
In this Utrecht church renovation (below), original stained glass windows are the eyes to the soul inside.
Sometimes, simply hanging a few clean and modern pendant lights and a mid-century inspired floor lamp can dramatically transform a church space.
The Chrome Arch Black Marble Base Floor Lamp featured below is a great example of simple modern styling that would work well in any space.
Open floor plans. Exposed ceilings. Massive windows. Wood floors. Long before modern design ever existed, churches unwittingly encompassed many of its philosophical fundamentals. Now it is up to chic church renovations to carry on the legacy.
