Beautiful Store Day!

I've decided to declare today Beautiful Store Day here on decor8. I think my Notting Hill post inspired all of us more than I ever anticipated because I've been reading all these wonderful emails all morning about your memories of Notting Hill, your favorite stores here and abroad, etc. we're going to diverge a bit from shopping and just talk about stores.

It's funny, even though I do most of my shopping online, there is nothing that transports, inspires and makes me feel more creative than when I'm inside of a well designed + beautiful retail space.

This is an open thread. Comment here or send an email.

Describe the look and feel of the perfect store, one that makes you weak in the knees...
