Several months ago the new Vera Bradley store at Somerset Mall opened. When you first enter you feel like you are walking into someones home, someone with a very creative eye for creating a large impact in a very small space.
My first thought was that this space, so beautifully laid out, would be a nice arrangement for a retirement condo or small home. The architectural detail and proportion was so precise that even with all the pattern, which I like but some might find objectionable, you immediate felt balanced and comfortable. The ceiling treatments really caught my eye from the moment you enter.
This little dining room area, to the left of the entry, is wallpapered in a Thibaut pattern with a dark brown background. The yellow toile upholstered chairs and needlepoint rug were so cute and fit the area really well.
The body of the store was papered in brown and cream buffalo checked wallpaper from Scalamandre. It is the biggest checked paper I've ever seen. Across from this grouping on the wall was a sofa covered in the brown check with little side tables on either side , a coffee table in front and a sofa table behind it, set up just like a living room.
Hope you enjoyed this little tour of the Vera Bradley store. Oh, they sell purses too ;)
