We were *beyond thrilled* to be chosen by MSNBC for a feature on window displays. The show is called Your Business – a program which specializes on topics of interest to independent businesses. The MSNBC team flew out from New York to film us discussing our take on the importance of window displays. They also filmed us installing one of our fab window displays (which they then ran in super-speed – how cool is that?).
How’d Tilde get on the MSNBC radar, you ask? We were referred by Linda Cahan, a national expert on window display and merchandising, who also was featured in the show offering viewers terrific advice. The Tilde team worked diligently to create a window that showed products and our super crafty Tilde style. Our ten minutes of fame caught on film – and, for you to view right here.
We’ve had quite an adventure this past week! Tilde was filmed for a segment of the MSNBC television show ‘Your Business’ (runs on Sunday morning). We fit the bill for an independent business with some interesting window displays. (Who knew? Someone did!) In addition to interviewing both me and Joanna, a camera was mounted in the window capturing us as we put one of our windows up. Yup. Reality show on window design and display, from start to finish. We were nervous but pretty excited, too! Quite an honor. We were referred by Linda Cahan, a national expert on window displays, which was an honor in itself. (Thanks, Linda!) And, for all of you just chomping at the bit to see us in Technicolor action, this 30-minute show will air in May.
For these windows, we tried to keep it simple, with color blocking on the window and sewn together in strips hanging from the ceiling. We pulled the color scheme from one of the handbags in store. We visited our favorite vintage shop and put together some great furniture, too – the best from previous decades (these chairs are from 1930). What fun!This little table ensemble plays with the same colors. And isn’t Mr. Deer (the jewelry holder) pretty awesome? We think so.
