Blueprint Store and GIVEAWAY!

Imagine walking into a store, yet it feels more like walking into a home...one amazing home. A calm and serene setting awaits and welcomes you to keep coming in. Room after room appropriately displays breathtakingly beautiful furniture for you to sit on, touch and experience.  Fabrics, paintings, accessories and more are delicately placed for shoppers to enjoy, appreciate, and envision for their own homes.  This is an environment for creativity, possibility, conversation and collaboration.  Welcome to Blueprint Store. We caught up with the ladies behind this Dallas treasure to see more of their gorgeous furnishings and hear more about this unique interior showplace. Enjoy! Tell our readers a little history behind Blueprint and how it came to fruition! Five friends with a shared love for interior design brought Blueprint to life. After having traveled for years to the UK and France for their own design firms, they decided in 2010 that it was due time for a storefront.

What is Blueprint's style and what can you expect to see when you walk through the front door? Customers always ask us "can we just live here?" We like to think of it as walking into a breath of fresh air...clean, crisp, bright and uplifting. We love to layer our favorite time-periods:  Mixing the old with the new, retro and regency, Eames and empire, lacquer and Louis XVI. We are big believers that without the old there is no context for the new! What are Blueprint's summer favorites in the store right now? The lucite & leather chair and the Parisian 1920 lucite tables by Pierre Vandel! We can't keep them on the showroom floor long enough!

What design trends does Blueprint see for the Fall? We are seeing lots of exotic woods, specifically zebra wood. The stripe effect gives such great texture to any room.

We are also very fond of smooth white gesso pieces. *note: we like a matte finish -- it's super groovy! And, all items below are available at Blueprint!

Touch on the different services that Blueprint provides to its customers. We have a staff full of design fanatics who treat the Blueprint home like their own. Our stylists are responsible for the signature Blueprint look and feel you see in our store everyday. Each stylist has a keen eye for attention to detail -- we fluff, arrange, re-arrange, reinvent, edit and tweak each room on a daily basis! Frequently, our clients and customers request in-home consultations. We graciously accept design projects beyond our store walls. We help clients with bookshelves, paint colors, furniture placement and accessorizing! Bring in photos of your home or make an appointment! We love a challenge.
