I pride myself in staying in the know when it comes to stores here in Madison. So, when I stopped into this interior design shop (that I had driven by zillions of times) I was kicking myself for not doing it sooner.
As soon as you step thru Fontaine's lime green front door you are bombarded by design bliss. Each corner, wall and table are merchandised into little vignettes straight out of a magazine and seriously something for every style.
citrus topiary garden
trendy South Beach
ethnic and textural Ikat
updated French country with the coolest menagerie of roosters.
And how is this for a seafood bar?
jars and jars of delicate shells, urchins & starfish.
I was mesmerized how beautiful they looked massed in these apothecary jars. Makes me want to redo my entire sun porch in a beach theme.
Fontaine is also a full service design studio. The owner, Barry, & his staff are not only wildly talented, but have stocked this little Eastside shop with things straight out of a big city neighborhood boutique. You just have to check it out for yourself...you will not leave empty handed. Oh, and make a pit stop after at Sophia's (a few doors down) for a chocolate croissant. All that shopping might make you hungry.
