We have waited and waited and waited to have an exterior sign we loved that embodied the essence of what awaits customers when they walk through the front door of our shop. Today, that sign was hung! The channel letters (individual letters spelling out The Blissful) were rough-cut from metal and finished with an imperfect, handpainted treatment. They are in just the right shade of platinum that strikes a balance between cool and warm. When the sun hits them at a certain angle, they almost appear mirrored! We wanted the letters to look very "found." See how our tagline sits in a winsome script on the shapely box beneath the channel letters? That piece, too, was handpainted with a finish resembling tarnished metal. At night, the letters appear to glow from behind, while the piece bearing the tagline is lit from within.
We wanted a sign that was chic, European, "found"-looking, and slightly funky. It's amazing what artists can do. Thanks to all those who designed, cut, painted, measured, and installed on our behalf.
