|Window displays in New York City.|
Recently, I went into New York City on a warm summer night to draw at the Frick (more about that in a future post) and since it was still light out when I left the museum I had a great walk down Madison Avenue.
The upper east side is home to some of the chicest boutiques in the city and the window displays were amazing. Here are some museum worthy window displays I spotted I wanted to share with you.
|More tropical birds, this time used just as display props in shoe and handbag store.|
|Art inspires life inspires art again. I love the artistry in this window display. The words as art is a huge trend right now in both contemporary art as well as popular culture. Wouldn’t it be fabulous to make a painting that spelled the word “create” out of flowers? (or any inspirational word, really)|
|There is nothing so unusual about this window display except I love that they chose “radiant orchid” tones throughout their window and these Alliums are just divine. You can read

|Floral prints are a big trend this summer as well. You see the same roses as in the florist shop in the Kate Spade pants. I love the way the word “romance” is positioned just at the waistline of the manikin so it acts as a belt. Everything from the floral backdrop, the decals, the manikin all work together to form a harmonious composition.|
|Once again, we see words as art and what better quote than for a wine store!? I like the way the store incorporated an actual piece of art in the window display. I like to use quotes in my art too, that I either make up myself or “borrow” from favorite writers.|
|In this theatrical window display, the scene may be depicting two museum goers as they both hold up brochures against a rococo painting in a gilded frame. I’m not sure what they are acting out….are they arguing?..any ideas???|
