How to add value to a traditional West End home



From Milan to Aberdeen – we bring a brand-new shopping experience for the fashion lovers of Aberdeen from across the pond. Our location was an empty retail unit in the up and coming West End of Aberdeen and this was brought to us by an enthusiastic and passionate client, looking to bring a unique boutique to the city that offers an exclusive selection of handbags and accessories for both men and woman.

We had a great opportunity to transform this tired and neglected office unit into something bright and inspiring. We worked closely with the client to make sure we could highlight the beautiful stock as well as creating an enjoyable shopping experience for the customers.

It’s all in the detail – we stuck to a minimal colour palette of muted greys, white and concrete finishes, allowing us to create some great copper detailing to really highlight key areas and give the shop a considered and beautiful finish. The client knew exactly how she wanted the product to be displayed and this has been offset by some beautifully finished bespoke shelving and furniture. A new, bright open space has now been created. Warning: You will not leave without a beautiful purchase!

“ I really enjoyed working with Tinto. Richard has been very useful during the initial phases for the design of the space and to shape the ideas I had in mind. At Tinto you can find people who have vision and are able to understand well what the clients have in mind. But working with Richard and his team has also been a pleasant experience, Richard always tries to help his customers and he is available for the big things or just for small details. I was also lucky enough to work with Nina Cradock, the interior designer at Tinto. Nina delivered an amazing job, Stellar is a beautiful shop but without Nina’s help and support I am not sure if the result would have been the same. I can highly recommend choosing Tinto.”
