Well known shopping spotCarrie Ann Boutique in Uptown Park has had a facelift and to commemorate the occasion the team threw open their doors, invited a few friends, a reality TV star, and had a party.
The shift to a more minimalist luxe look is a mark of growth for owner Carrie Ann Sanders and designers Alicia Redman and Amanda Medsger of soon to launch design group RMMR Projects saw that as their focus. The minds behind some of Houston's most well-known retail concepts, including Settlement Goods and Bedroom by New Living, concentrated on getting to know Sanders' new perspective and communicating that through the store's new design.
"We really got to know Carrie and how she had grown over the years and we wanted to rep her new style. One of the hardest decisions was the wall color. We went with the white to make the clothes pop and we created vignettes to showcase the different clothing styles," said the design partners.
The addition of a Jonathan Adler chandelier, re-purposed furniture pieces from the original space, and gold accents make for a light, bright, incredibly inviting atmosphere guests were fawning over as they sipped champagne.
The gathering was also an unofficial Houston launch of Clique by Roblé a new fragrance by chef and star of Bravo reality show Roblé and Co. Chef Roblé. The crisp scent was front and center during the event and will be sold at the boutique for those wanting to snatch up a bottle or two.
