While out scouting for a shoot for Martha Stewart Living, Decorating Editor Rebecca and I visited a great store. Lisa Perry is a lifestyle brand with one location in Manhattan's Upper East Side. Lisa Perry created the brand to resemble the design aesthetic of the 60s and 70s, but infused it with a new-age feel. The store sells mostly clothing, but there are a lot of great accessories and home furnishings as well. The whole store screams retro in the best way. It's mostly white, with framed vintage dresses hung as artwork. This simple design puts the colorful products on display, and they make for the best decoration of all. Rebecca and I had such a fun time visiting, so we thought we'd share some of the photos we took.
1 The entrance to Lisa Perry on Madison Ave.
2 I love the large crayons piggy banks, I think everyone had one of these growing up. We recently used a few for a shoot.
3 The 60s photography is a great touch. Stepping into the store is like stepping back in time.
4 The store is filled with framed vintage dresses, which is a cool idea.
5 I'm especially amused with this Bob Dylan dress.
6 The candy bar dresses are so much fun.
7 The use of gray on the walls really makes the white shelves pop.
8 A cute kids table. The wire flowers add a cool, whimsical edge.
9 The shape of the dresses is very retro, but I think the colors look so fresh.
10 Circles and dots are obviously a big theme in this store.
11 The motif carries onto the clothing.
12 A selection of gilded jewelry. The domed display case is quite unique.
13 The chairs look almost like eggs with the tops cut off. I think the shape and use of color is so great.
14 These dome display cases were one of my favorite aspects of the store.
15 These key chains would make great gifts.
16 The shape of these retro-inspired dresses is so simple and streamlined.
17 I like the mixture of different purples in this home set-up.
18 Lisa Perry makes a great range of handbags and purses and they come in bright, patent materials.
19 A few of the offices at Lisa Perry.
20 They have a great selection of housewares as well. Just check out these colorful place mats.
21 I love this color palette.
22 All of the place mats spread out, with some cute stationary and coin purses in the background.
23 A beautifully decorated office. I love all the light. What an inspirational work place.
24 The pink patent chairs are great. They remind me of strawberry ice-cream. The color is phenomenal.
25 Some interesting artwork.
26 A view of the store. There is so much light in here.
27 There were so many mirrors in the store. These remind me of bubbles, with their varying shapes.
28 Simple dots positioned on the wall make for great decoration.
29 The Lisa Perry logo.
