I rarely post two shots on the same day, but I thought I would give everyone a glimpse of the store that's been taking up all my time, lately.

We've put up dozens of interior walls of all different colors, creating dozens of cool vingettes, and we're still a month away from completion.

We've worked our butts off!!! Just give us one more month, and I promise you, this will be the most beautiful furniture showroom in NM!!

By the way, it's hard to get the white balance right with these crazy halogen lights!!

Thanks a bushel, Audrey!!! It's been an ordeal, but I think it's gonna be worth it!

So unique and beautiful, Don! The rolltop is sweet! My furniture experience is limited to selling and putting together media niches for people when I worked at Circuit City. What you're doing is hard work indeed, the results here are wonderful :-)
Carrie McGann 2011-07-13 08:25:43
awesome tones & texture in this one
I love that we're finally getting to see your hard work Don!!
karma (Karen) 2011-07-13 08:27:13
Because of all the construction, I think I've dusted every piece of furniture in the store at least forty times, Carrie :) It's good to know someone who understands how much work is involved in this. Thanks again, dear friend!

I was thinking of you when I took these shots, Karen! I know you wanted to see the store, and I'll be posting some more as we go along. Thanks so very much!!

Good luck with the opening. In interior design, as in photography, you have a great eye! And I think you nailed the white balance!
I'm younger than that now 2011-07-13 10:16:43
Thanks so much, John!! This one was a bit of a puzzle for me.....I really appreciate you coming by!
Sellinstix..inactive at the moment 2011-07-13 10:26:05
I will be eager to see the completed project. While it may be a lot of work, it is work and you are blessed.
suenosdeuomi 2011-07-13 11:12:06
I hope you can come to visit, OM.....it's gonna be gorgeous!!
Sellinstix..inactive at the moment 2011-07-13 11:13:55
Ohhhhhhh! This is wonderful, Don!! Can i live in your store? I'm neat and tidy and as quiet as a lil mouse.

bobbat 2011-07-13 11:34:12
I would never leave this room. With designs like this you will have the best showroom in NM. I so want that roll top. The open is going to be awesome!
twbphotos 2011-07-13 11:37:42
I will meet you at the airport, dear Boba!!!

Thanks so much, Terry!! I am so excited about this store!!
Sellinstix..inactive at the moment 2011-07-13 11:40:01
Very beautiful. I love the wooden headboard and the rolltop desk. I can see your store will be filled with lovely exquisite things. All the best.

In the end the hard work will be worht it. A beautiful showroom indeed!!!
davev704 2011-07-13 20:40:36
I like all the neutrals, but the dead tree doesn't cut it!
Nance McKinney 2011-07-13 21:46:19
Very pretty - as a photo, I like the tones and balance. If I were living with this though, I would want a shot of hot color. Pink, or lime green, or turquoise?
AmyEmilia 2011-07-13 21:56:33
I would like to shop there.
blamstur 2011-07-13 22:13:36
Very nice! Is this what you do? It's a wonderful work. If I ever buy a house, I'm definitely calling you!
Rafakoy 2011-07-13 23:18:21
Thanks so much, everyone!! We still have to place a lot of furniture, and add some more lighting and art on the walls, but I can definitely see light at the end of the tunnel, now!
Sellinstix..inactive at the moment 2011-07-13 23:49:44
so cool, can't wait til you open. where is it? i had to get a color checker passport for all my indoor photgraphy, the lighting everywhere is so mixed and the camera doesn't "see" it the same way the human eye does.
stay-at-home-gypsy 2011-07-14 00:54:06
That color checker sounds like a great idea, Marti! We've actually been open for almost a year, but because of all the interior construction work that we started a few months ago, we're really something of a mess at the moment :)

I'd give us at least 3 weeks, and then come see us at Montgomery and Wyoming. We're in the center behind the Range Cafe on Wyoming, right next to the Hastings. I'm off on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Sellinstix..inactive at the moment 2011-07-14 01:38:28
ahhhh, thx!!!
stay-at-home-gypsy 2011-07-14 02:00:29
Beautiful settings, Don. Sell the dream, my man!
d_rod 2011-07-14 02:44:46
What an exquisite interior shot, Don! Looks like all your hard work is well paying off which is lovely to see! Good luck with the rest of the workload....I am sure you will be proud when it's all finished!
vesna1962 2011-07-14 05:38:13
Thanks again, Marti and David and Vesna!!
Sellinstix..inactive at the moment 2011-07-14 06:29:10
this is so interesting, that you do this! it's a beautiful color for a wall
i'm going to have to go see this
behind the Range Cafe, the new Range on the west side of the street? is it in the building that used to be the grocery store? i'm glad they remodeled that, i hate when there are empty buildings sitting unused
this looks great :)
cjc4454 2011-07-14 06:30:15
That's the place, Cathy. Do give us a few more weeks before you come by though....it's a mess right now :)
Sellinstix..inactive at the moment 2011-07-14 06:35:53
OK :)
of course, messy makes for good photos!
cjc4454 2011-07-14 06:53:55
Well, that's true :)
Sellinstix..inactive at the moment 2011-07-14 08:55:05
That's wonderful that you have a furnishing store! You have such a wonderful eye for color and texture, I bet it will be awesome! Congratulations and the best of luck sweetie!

Hi there, Mary Anne!! Actually, I run the mattress department for Lauren Home...I'm not the owner. But the entire staff has been hard at work for several months, and I think we're gonna have a great store when we're done!

Thanks again, Stephanie!! I'm glad you like it!!

how fun..I like the tones myself...great shot Don !
Pattys-photos 2011-07-16 18:51:01
Like the feel to the room. Very comfortable. I agree that interior lights be they halogen or flourescent, present their own challenges. You triumphed quite nicely here. If I was close by, I'd have to visit the store.
michaelwr 2011-07-17 04:29:54
Wow! I wondered what you had been up to Don and now I understand.

It looks beautiful. Really classy and good quality - I'm positive that all your hard work will pay off when you fling those doors open :-)

Best of luck and keep us posted!

Beautiful tones and lovely decoration, Don ! I am sure your store will be a great success.

Look so warm and inviting and give a cosy feeling. Must be easy to sell.
Ohhh I know Montgomery, we where selling bookshelves to them many year ago now. the world is small. :)
`maridesign` 2011-07-19 02:17:41
Great tones, Don!
Paulo Heuser 2011-07-19 06:53:16
Thanks very much, Isabelle!!! I'm actually only a manager, but I'm very proud of the store!!

The world is small indeed, dear Mari!! Thanks a bushel!!

And thank you too, Paulo!!

Nice work Don. I've missed your more recent work lately. busy, busy. hope you are having a great summer, and beating the heat and smoke that has engulfed NM!
NancyHasHadIt 2011-07-19 10:38:57
I know all about being busy, Nancy.....I'm so glad to hear from you again, though! It's been a very challenging summer here in NM......it does make me miss Colorado even more!!!
