Au revoir Mignonne!

Behold my last window design / installation for Mignonne. The star of the display is an amazing handmade bench by local artist Billy Kroft that used salvaged wood to piece together this intricate and beautiful piece. The small mirror perched on the bench is also the work of Billy Kroft.

We set out to have an autumn outdoorsy feel for the display, using muted colors, distressed textures, and fun branch and leave props. The frame's dry brushed paint treatment is meant to mimick the distressed paint finishes of most of Kroft's pieces and act as a weathered frame for the vignette.

I'm sad to be done at Mignonne but I have learned so much from my time there, built upon my portfolio, had tons of fun, and met a bunch of new friends. I am excited to see what direction Mignonne's new intern will take with the windows and look forward to a new chapter in Mignonne's colorful future!
