Saturday was the Junction’s opening party for the contact photo festival. There were dozens of little impromptu galleries on our street and we were excited to be one of them. Especially considering we were showing a wonderful series by Per Kristiansen.

The store was looking beautifully minimalist with everything off the shelves.

We had the Golightly Jazz Band perform some great jazz standards during the public and private reception.

A sea of heads. And in true party fashion, everyone crammed themselves into the proverbial kitchen.

Brad from Rodney’s Oyster House came to shuck up something delicious.

I easily had over a dozen oysters just for myself, but I lost count.

We also had beer from Warsteiner, Rekorderlig cider, and Organized Crime Wine! We told the bar tender to use all of the Oji Masanori brass bottle openers to open beer.

Foggy windows!

Monday morning House and Home stylist Kimberly Brown and photographer Janet Kimber came by to shoot the store for the H&H September issue! That same day Studio Junction came by to take some images while the place was looking so clean and nice.

Since our store faces the south we don’t start getting natural light until the end of the day. I took the opportunity to take some shots of the space with all the lights off.

Everything on the black floating bookcase really pops.

These bell lights by Alvar Aalto are just beautiful.

We installed leather pulls for the cabinetry, which are a pleasure to pull and something that we’d like to explore using in other places in our home.

The shop is feeling really good these days! We’ve sold off some furniture and are ready for a new crop of pieces!
