I’m so excited to end this week with the results of our most recent DS Hashtag Challenge: #DSStorefronts. My goal with this challenge was not just to find visual inspiration from great storefronts, but to also highlight some of the great brick-and-mortar shops across the globe. And your photos did not disappoint! From Mexico, Argentina, the UK, Australia and beyond, your snaps of amazing shops, stores and restaurants have given me so much inspiration. Beautifully lettered logos, neon signs, painted exteriors — these spaces have it all, and there are so many ideas here that could be carried into both home and studio designs.
So until Monday, here’s wishing you all a safe and happy weekend and lots to spark your creativity! Thank you again to everyone who shared their #dsstorefronts photos with us! Click through the slideshow above to see them all. xo, grace
