Our clients Gina Cartwright, a jewelry designer and Jennifer Grigsby, a wardrobe stylist, joined forces to start Cakewalk, an online boutique. The following year, in 2011, they decided to open Cakewalk as a bricks and mortar store in the River Oaks neighborhood of Houston. This was a fun Houston interior design project, in which we helped to plan and design what was a very rough space into a cozy and stylistically eclectic shopping environment. We found a French Louis lV style settee and recovered it in a very 21st century fabric with color photo images of flowers, and mixed it with an acrylic table, a metal yellow side table from West Elm, and an oversized “C”, which Gina found at a flea market in Paris.
