A finalist Durham Magazine’s Best of Awards, Magpie Boutique is a woman’s apparel and accessories store in Durham, NC. Located in Durham’s downtown warehouse district, Magpie needed a fresh interior to match its offerings from both emerging and established American and International designers. Springing from the shop’s aviary name and graphics, Heather carried related elements of bird houses, large trees, grasscloth and floral-designed lighting throughout the space. Porcelain “cracked egg” sculptures punctuate the walls, and rich finishes such as resin, plaster, velvet, vintage wood, gold leafing, and leather provide the furnishing fundamentals. Once lighting levels throughout the store were warmed and lowered, the space adopted a luxurious, cocooning feel.
