it’s no secret that i’m a huge fan of baked bakery in red hook brooklyn. along with owners renato poliafito and matt lewis, the bakery was one of the first subjects of the d*s video series and it’s still one of my favorite places to spend an hour during the week eating cupcakes and drinking a hot chocolate. so i’m thrilled to share a sneak peek into baked’s new shop in charleston, sc! matt and renato worked with hivemind design again (ruby and sather do such great work) and created a really special shop, with a similar feel to the brooklyn location, but with it’s own spin on the modern ski lodge meets southern gothic look. baked: charleston is location on the corner of east bay street, in the city’s historic french quarter and has three walls of tall windows that light up the space. i love all of the design details in the space like the walls decorated with layers of white molding (that’s molding! i thought it was wallpaper) and the penny tile that spells out “baked. the charleston location has a special “club room” that is a beautiful dark juxtaposition to the lightness of the rest of the space. i’ll let the pictures speak for themselves and just finish by saying thanks to everyone at baked charleston and matt and renato for their help! you can click here for additional, and full-sized images of the new shop.
