Three Steps to America’s Cup Tribute

Kendall Wilkinson welcomes the America's Cup this month with a new seaworthy home store vignette. Taking inspiration from the cup itself, the vignette pairs old world luxury with modern aerodynamic/streamlined touches.

The America's Cup is the oldest active trophy in international sport. It is a test of not only sailing skill but a contest of design as well.

Here are three (simplified) steps we used to create the new display.

Step 1 - Paint the Background
Paint the walls a velvety-grey. We love ‘Strong White’ from Farrow & Ball. It complements the sterling and polished nickel treasures found throughout the store.

Step 2 - Curate Vibrant Art
Curate vibrant, large-scale art that mimics the sea. A wind and water composition with shades of Blue by Barbara Vaugh was the perfect find thanks to Dolby Chadwick. The yellow and browns in Tom Lieber’s painting adds a strong focal point to the room.

Step 3 - Source Luxurious Chairs and Rugs
Pair luxurious, (and comfortable) chairs from Jiun Ho with a Morrocan rug from Tony Kitz Gallery. Dust off the vintage barware and silver trophies.

The stage is all set. Fleur’t even brought us flowers with pops of yellow to celebrate. We’re super excited to welcome sailors, visitors and explorers of all kinds this summer.
