Hayley Carrow and Cortney Morrison-Taylor want you to love the space you live in. They combined their passion for vintage treasure hunting with their backgrounds in interior design and painting, and voilà! reimagine opened on Elmwood at St. James Place in March 2010, and have since moved into Dolci’s old space at the corner of Elmwood and Breckenridge. The store offers a wide assortment of vintage home furnishings collected from local estates and homes that have been restored to fit any style.
service for customers, called the Design Bar, or what Cortney and Hayley call “a new kind of design.” Customers
can utilize the ladies’ expertise in interior design through individualized services–such
as color consultations, space planning, window or wall treatments, and
organizational tips–that are tailored to fit a customer’s unique home décor needs.
When I first learned of this new Design Bar, I immediately thought it was a
brilliant idea for reimagine, as it turns this store–and its owners–into a much
more resourceful design shop that can suit a multitude of needs, beyond retail.
Customers can select from reimagine’s a la carte menu, or opt for a full
service offering. Services range from $55 to $575.
