Founded by Sarah Gibson Tuttle, the space is like the beauty version of Ten's charming Melrose boutique, equipped with creative decor, inspiring style and a welcoming vibe. Other cool touches: online booking, WiFi and iPads, cute service names, and a place to hang your bag and keys. We can definitely see this becoming a hangout spot in-between shopping sprees.
"When I started working with TenOverSix, I knew the feeling I wanted people to have when they walked into the space," Tuttle tells us. "[TenOverSix's Brady Cunningham and Kristen Lee Cole] were able to take all that and magically translate it into the perfect space. I couldn't be happier with the final product."
"We are very familiar with creating a public space that has to wear well and serve many functions," Cole tells us. "We're really into the build-out and interior design, but also the merchandising of product, so it's fun to work with different types of businesses with different product offerings. We've worked in creating fashion retail, hotel lobbies, a coffee shop, a bookstore, a craft cocktail bar, etc. Each has their own unique needs for display and usage. The Olive & June Polish display is beautiful, and the custom furniture we had made locally has both great form and function. We wanted the space to be clean, modern, and identifiable with the brand."
Starting tomorrow, Olive & June is open Monday through Thursday 8am to 9pm and Friday through Sunday from 8am to 8pm. See the full menu here.
