Move that Bus!!
We felt like we needed a huge crowd (and Ty Pennington would have been nice!) cheering this weekend at Poppyseeds on Saturday night after the front room had an entire MAKEOVER from The Debi Ward Kennedy . It has been a super exciting weekend for us. Here is the story, as many of you know Debi Ward Kennedy has a room at Poppyseeds that she fills with all of her creations. If you have ever been in her space at Poppyseeds or Faded Elegance you know what I mean - They are incredible. So, on Thursday we met with her. Deb is a retail designer, speaker, writer and we are so grateful to call her our Friend! She is offering her services to us in making over everything at Poppyseeds. Her artistic abilities are beyond anything I can tell you. You really have to see for yourself. Her blog is an amazing resource so check it out.

On Saturday she literally moved every piece of furniture and fixture in our front room. Here is the BEFORE picture:

And here are a couple of AFTER shots!
Can you believe the difference?! The large Antique hutch was moved to the corner. The glass jewelry case was moved over by the windows and is now filled with all of the jewelry. And the bed and sideboard have been replaced with an elegant 1930's Duncan Phyfe table and chair set painted and totally glamed out with black faux fur seats! Just by moving the larger pieces and coordinating colors and arranging the lighting - It gives this room a complete makeover and we could not be happier.
Deb is assisting us in recreating Poppyseeeds brand image by redesigning our entire store. You will have to stay tuned as the next transformation is outside. Here is a little clue! Out with the OLD - We cannot wait for the NEW!!
