Studio and Boutique Space Available

photo (68)Most of you may have already heard the buzz about what’s happening in The District at the oceanfront in Virginia Beach.  The Pilot recently published an article about the growth and the energy that’s taking place right here!

Chartreuse is home to Designers and Artists….. and we now have more space for rent.  As the owner of Chartreuse, I had a very clear vision of what I wanted to accomplish with this space.  Most of that vision has come to fruition… and the other part is still in the making.  I was the first retail space in this area… and after 4 years… I’m here to stay!

I have people coming in daily, wanting to rent space.  I just haven’t found the perfect yet!  So I’m stepping out and putting the word on the street!

I’m looking for 2 things:

1.  A small boutique with clothing and accessories.  We’ve had 2 “pop-up” shops over the last two holidays and they’ve done great!  However, I’m still looking for the right fit… for both of us!  I want a boutique that has a high-end inventory that will attract shoppers here at that oceanfront.  There are no boutiques on this side of the beach and the women want it!  Trust me…  I wouldn’t add a business that locals wouldn’t love!

2.  I have a space for another artist’s studio.  I’m open as to what kind of artists may be interested but definitely do not want to have any chemicals or fumes inside the building.

I’m excited about all the growth that’s taking place in The District.  Across the street we soon have a Vodka Distillery with a tasting room, a cutting edge florist, a cafe’ and a beautiful new restaurant with outdoor space…. Esoteric!  You can read about all these new businesses at this link:   http://hamptonroads.com/2014/11/entrepreneurs-hope-renaissance-near-oceanfront?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=facebook

Only serious contacts please!  I’m only speaking with people interested in being a part of an amazing new movement and are willing to work with a team of people who are passionate about their gifts.  We do a lot of events and I am the Co-Creator of the ViBe… so these spots are reserved for artists/business who want to be part of something BIG!!!  Please call for appointments at 757-422-1494

God Save The Queen B’s!

The result of an insult... became the inspiration for success and ownership!
The result of an insult… became the inspiration for success and ownership!

As an artist and a designer I’m always finding new ways to express myself.  This year I’ve had some time to play around and make some really cool jewelry and have even sold a few pieces!

A few years ago…. like 13… there was some rap song that said “B”… referring to bitch.  It quickly grew into our universal name for all co-workers!  Hey, B!  To this day… there’s a whole group of us who still call each other “B”!  It’s turned into a sweet term of endearment though.  No longer reserved for bitches… but rather a loved one; a reference to one of our tribe or crew members!

I’ve carried the nickname, B, Plan B, Queen B and even Sting… back in the day when my hair was cut like the wrestler… and I was young and free and dancing around like a BEE!

Most recently, I had my ex decide to be mean and nasty to me again!!!  In a text I was called the “C” word, the “B” word and “Sting”…  I politely signed my response with a cute little honey bee… he replied… “yes, you are the QUEEN BEE”!!!!  LOL!!!

So without giving you all the details… and because my posible “tell all” book and “polygraph party” are each titled…. QUEEN B!!!  Here’s the tidbit I promised you behind the name of my new jewelry line!

I don’t have time to deal with mean ex’s on the level in which they deserve (I only have one…. the rest are cool)…. AND NEITHER DO YOU!!!!  So instead, take the talent that God gave you… turn the negative into a positive!  You can’t get back the time or money they stole… But you can grow… and make more money off an idea that was created by the positive spin you took… by their negative actions!!!!

HERE’S TO THE “QUEEN B’S” OF THE WORLD!!!!!  GO GET YOURS!  And if you know a Queen B who could use some support or encouragement…. share this story and hopefully it will “sting” just enough to motivate them to do the same thing!

PEACE, LOVE and HONEY (money) … LOL

POP UP SHOPPE!

Come get your fashion on!
Come get your fashion on!

 

In case you hadn’t seen the news on our facebook page…..  The Phoenix of Richmond has joined us for the holidays with an amazing Pop Up Shoppe inside Chartreuse!

We’re very excited about this new venture!!!  As most of you know, it’s been a dream of mine to add a boutique inside Chartreuse.  After a year of trying to juggle the making of this dream…. between design, furniture and art….  I came to the realization that it’s another full time job that needs total focus!  So…. I turned to a pro!

I have some very exciting news about the new space we just moved into.  I finally have the space to do whatever I want and it’s happening!  Stay tuned for next big article on a very talented artist who will be joining us on this new journey….  HINT: There will be art classes taking place inside Chartreuse…. and those classes will be designed for you and your friends to enjoy in a private group setting with food and wine and fun!

Check out and LIKE our facebook page to stay in the know!

It's that time of year again!

Rustic Revival

This look is hotter than ever….. you can get it at Chartreuse!

In every mag and new design book on the stands you’re sure to find cowhide rugs along with antlers.  It’s hot; it’s in; it’s classic enough for any style room.

If you’re worried that it’s a little too trendy….. don’t….. When the mags are tired of publishing this “now” item you can rest assured knowing these rugs line the floors of many famous homes and have for years…. never going out of style!  (ps…. this one still has the branding mark of the rancher!)

Be sure to click “shop online now” button at the top of our home page and see this and many more items available at Chartreuse!

Another Chapter….

I was just reading my old blogs from my Beach Chick Art page….. I then looked at my first blog, dated June 2011, “About Chartreuse”….. this was before the doors opened and I was itching to make my way…

My vision has pretty much stayed the same…. although I have not been able to get all my goals and dreams off the ground…. yet!  (Of course I’m never going to stop dreaming….. so go figure) Which brings me to CHARTREUSE’S next chapter……  CLOTHING and JEWELRY!

Not just any clothing and jewelry…..  as I wrote in my very first blog….. LOCAL DESIGNERS!  I am now working on a boutique style area inside CHARTREUSE where I will be selling and showcasing clothing and jewelry designs from the UP AND COMING!

SO STAY TUNED…….. and keep an eye out for my CASTING CALL….

Once Upon A Time….

Imagine the possibilities......

If this doesn’t make you want to curl up and read a book with your little one…. you might want to check your pulse!

This dreamy settee is made from an antique iron crib with hand made linens that are removable and washable….. but most importantly……… so soft and comfortable!

And for those of who might be drooling over the table….. it’s to die for!  It’s another one of my French Connection finds!

You’re Invited!

Can't wait to see you there!
