A runway in the center of the store, made of varying shades of blue mosaic glass tiles, provides a distinct entry and product presentation focus while reinforcing the store's two distinctive halves. On one side a "boutique" showcases products in a vignette style, while on the other side the "warehouse" provides density with higher-capacity fixtures.
Fixture and color palette is neutral, using dark and light wood mixed with pale blues to provide a rich and warm yet subtle backdrop for the product. Lamps throughout the store emit a warm sunlight base color to reinforce the residential feeling and to bring out the true color of the product.
