Though I’ve always loved my adopted home town of Nashville – believed it was a real diamond in the rough – I have never felt inspired to blog about the cool design of a retail space here. Until now. Witness Two Old Hippies down in the Gulch, across the street from the Station Inn.
Especially the guitar room…..
First off when you first walk in, you get that divey barroom feel that’s oh so Nashvegas…..
But not. Check out the custom wooden gridded ceiling and customized wrought iron and parchment lights…..
…..the custom light blue velvet ottoman (for laying guitars down – and shooing off toddler sons)…..
…..and the ripplefold drapes (my newest obsession in drapery) made from faux suede…..
My guide for the afternoon, Craig Eck, was happy to show me how the chair in the corner had a notch out of the arm just for guitar playing…..
The guitar wall has a faux alligator hide wallpaper on it, and custom, locally made wrought iron guitar brackets…..
There’s something for everyone in this store. Liam found his something in among the kid’s rocker t-shirts…..
Craig’s favorite item (besides the guitars) is the men’s shirts – some of them made for performance wear…..
I even found a cute little Nashvegas mod dress that wouldn’t overwhelm little tiny me…..
And the handbags were to die for (are those pillows for sale?)…..
Two Old Hippies is open now. Their Grand Opening Celebration is this Saturday evening, and will feature some great live local music in the back of the store (permanently equipped with a stage)…..Now that’s Nashvegas style
