A Luxury Optometrist Office & Retail Boutique

Here’s a sneak peak into a recently completed project, Eyes on the Bloc, a luxury optometrist office and retail boutique at The BLOC in Downtown Los Angeles.

A clean, minimalist design was created, punctuated by artwork with optical references as a nod to the practice’s commitment of investing in the latest technology in optometry and the principal’s passion for art. The neutral color palette creates a welcoming shopping experience, while the placement of optical artwork adds just the right amount of drama and color.

Every corner of the store was thoughtfully designed around the experience of the customer, including the bright, back wall, which was fitted with back-lit displays. This wall display transforms an often ordinary and common design piece seen in most optometrist offices into a striking focal piece for the space, highlighting the products, while giving customers the highest level of ease and efficiency while shopping.

If you’re in Downtown Los Angeles make sure to stop by Eyes on the Bloc, which offers full-service eye care and a fabulous selection of designer eyewear,

A Shopping Dream!

Christmas arrived a little early this year with a shopping spree gift from Vogue Magazine and Bally, to shop at the newly designed Rodeo Drive boutique in Beverly Hills! Thank you Bally and Vogue Magazine for your generosity, hospitality and amazing time. It was truly a memorable experience to get a private tour of the new boutique and a personalized viewing of the current fashion collection.

I loved the chic shoes, bags, and of course the new boutique design!

A Luxury Optometrist Office & Retail Boutique

I am thrilled to share the interior branding design concept of an upcoming project, Eyes on the Bloc, in Downtown Los Angeles, CA.

Collaborating with the luxury optometrist office and retail boutique, we decided to create a minimalist design that aligned with their overall brand identity.  As a nod to the founder/optometrist’s love for art, the stark interior was punctuated with optical references, elevated as an art form, and with the company’s brand accent color of red.

The end result is a look that is unique and authentic to the company, while staying on brand!

The Dubai Mall

En route to India, this past holiday, my husband and I spent a day in Dubai. Ever the dedicated shop-researcher, we spent most of the day at the Dubai Mall. According to Wikipedia, it is the world’s largest shopping mall based on total area, over 12 million square feet. Very impressive!

Even their Starbucks are so much nicer!

A throne at the indoor gold souk.  Couldn’t resist sitting on it.


Loving these delicate cages…

A glass tunnel aquarium. It was quite a sight. I never thought I would be view some of the most exotic aquatic animals at a mall.

A hammerhead shark, at the Mall!

Penquins, too.
