My sister, Caroline DeCesare, just opened her first retail store, next door to my studio in Historic Downtown Mesa. We even put a door in the wall between our spaces so we can keep tabs on each other. Design Lab is a retail store dedicated to all the things we love:
*One-of-a-Kind items for your home
*Cool (and slightly irreverent) stationery
*Design Books (lots of books)
*Our favorite writing implements and cool notebooks and journals
and lots of Etc. (items that don’t fit into any of these categories).
Jaimee Rose from the Arizona Republic, has lots to say about it here
Caroline is the owner of DeCesare Design Group , a very busy interior design firm specializing in luxury residential and commercial projects. She is also the mother of two wild boys (7 and 6) and pregnant with her 3rd (a girl!). And so, of course, this means she is looking for something to do so why not a little retail store?
And running the laboratory on a daily basis is the famous JeNNifer Linton of former Memory Lane Photo and Paper Arts fame. Doesn’t she look so cute in her lab coat and glasses?!
And the 3 Hotties from DeCesare Design Group–Whittlee Hamblin, Kelsey Hunzeker and Nicole Melde. The Dream Team. These Jr. Designers will be weighing in with their “Lab Picks” on a regular basis, helping you with knowledgeable advice about what would look cute for your home and how to live a more fabulous life.
