I'm adding a new section to the blog that was suggested to me by my good friend Erik Rodriguez. I'm taking the experience of window shopping and bringing it online. Whenever I see an interesting decorative space in a store window anywhere in the world, I will snap a pic and post it.
First up, Selfridges on Oxford Street in London. I came across this window on a busy Thursday night and was struck by this whimsical idea. A pit filled with hundreds of balls, each passing through a giant wooden "roller coaster" drew the attention of the masses. When I stepped inside to get a closer look, I discovered that each ball had a "fortune" inside and by pulling a giant lever a ball would pop out containing a fortune.
My fortune was 2012 is going to be SUPERDELUXE for you. Let's hope this is true!
If you have a favorite "window" in your neighborhood, feel free to send it to me and I will post it on my blog!
