Retail Store Decor: A New York City Dog Salon

We’ve talked before about the importance of choosing the right art for a retail store design. The pictures on the walls in any shop not only reinforce its brand and inform its overall atmosphere, but can affect the way customers feel about their experience from the moment they walk in.

This next project, which we recently completed in a New York City dog salon, is the perfect example of a job well done. The salon owners had gathered portraits of canine “clients” and had them professionally printed, which both showed off the work they’d done and was also just downright adorable. We’re pretty sure that any customer–either canine and human–who visits the salon will feel both instantly welcome, and instantly cheerful. Here’s a closer look at this fun space.
We created multiple gallery walls in the space, both symmetrical and not, which makes the storefront feel less formal. To create a balance between the two walls, we opted to hang the neat, grid style arrangement on the bold yellow wall, and hang the more-fluid feeling arrangement on the simple white wall.
