Vintage Rose is a boutique women’s fashion store in Riccarton Mall, Christchurch.
We were asked to help with their new store fit-out, including new GIB plasterboard, new paint work and hanging new wallpaper. We also needed to add partition walls with decorative panelling and cornice, as well as a decorative ceiling.
The challenge was that the entire fit-out needed to be completed in the space of four weeks, just before Christmas, with our painters on an even tighter timeframe to finish their part of the job.
The wallpaper also provided its own set of challenges. Our team was provided with the last rolls of Vintage Rose’s custom wallpaper to install on several feature walls, with only just enough wallpaper for the job, leaving no room for error. In total, our painters put up 10 different types of wallpaper in the store.
Up to eight painters were working on the job at times, in a relatively small space. As well as working around each other, they also worked around the Vintage Rose staff as they started moving in.
The team worked long hours, including shifts from midnight to 4am, to ensure the project was delivered on time and to a high quality, in keeping with the Vintage Rose brand.
The entire fit-out was completed to a very high standard and the level of detail was impressive, helping to create a warm and welcoming in-store environment.
This project received gold status and also won the ‘New Interior – Small’ category supreme award at the 2017 Master Painters Awards.
