A compact retail space in Saskatchewan’s capital was transformed into a glamorous and elegant setting of, well, chocolate-brown walls and ceiling embellished with gold linear figures. At the front, matching gold-lined arches zoomed for scale serve respectively as the store entrance and ice-cream service counter. At the rear, an oversize “Luxe” wordmark logo in stylized Art Deco font perches above the centre of the display wall. The wall and the service counters, finished in brushed gold, cast a warm, inviting glow. The prevailing restricted palette emphasizes the bright colour pops of the bonbons showcased in the wide point-of-sale display, where they’re illuminated to gleam like gems in a jewelry store. DL
