Linger Worthy Retail Design

Some retail stores have such lovely interior designs, they're hard to leave. Retail design is  vital in order to capture the essence of a brand and put consumers in the right state of mind to unite their own style with that of the clothing in the store. Tory Burch, Paul Smith and Trina Turk all have gorgeous store interiors that make me want to linger. Do you have a favorite?

Tory Burch stores ooze sophistication and are known for  their clean lines, lacquer, gold, lucite and pops of orange, green and purple. I love how her boutiques are designed to feel as if you are in a room of her home rather than a store. Graphic rugs and lust worthy tables take you inside what could be the home of a socialite and her shoes and clothing allow you to walk away with attainable luxury. 

Paul Smith's Milan boutique is captivating in pictures. The pink walls and large floral image make it feel as though you could be in a gallery. Sparse retro furniture in feminine colors and pop art elements further add to the brands cheeky, colorful and lovely clothing.  

Trina Turk stores are perfectly designed to capture the retro resort lifestyle that her clothes are made for. Each store takes you on a journey to a different location, while all maintaining 70's flair and vibrant colors mixed in with signature white lacquer elements. The fact that she has worked with design talents including Kelly Wearstler certainly doesn't hurt either.
