Sweets, Treats, and Everything Your Design Tooth Craves!

Now open in Maple Grove, MN – Nadia Cakes! It’s about time we get some Minnesota love back up here. This is some of the best design to hit Minnesota since, well, since designer Lisa Klinger hit Minnesota!

This project was done in a mind-blowingly adorable wallpaper from Flavor Paper for a few walls and the ceiling soffit below! Lisa has a great ability to abstract exactly what the client is looking for from any series of ideas!  And I imagine this is even more than the Jimenezes could have dreamed of!

All things super girly deserve crystal chandeleirs and carerra marble, right? I love the finishes. They are complete fantasy – as are these delightful confections baked up by Abby and Carlos Jimenez.

Tiles are from Daltile. These are 2″ hexagons, which I love!

I love this seating area. Lisa had my heart at ‘Etsy’.  Since meeting Lisa four years ago at the beginning of our Masters program at RISD (four years ago?!), she has always been the most resourceful designer I know.  She can put together something from the Design Center just as well as something from Ebay or Craigslist! Lisa chose fabrics from Kravet and Architex to recover these vintage finds.  The pillows are from Etsy retailer, Festive Home Decor.

Owner, Abby Jimenez behind her store, Nadia Cakes (named for her daughter) whose Grand Opening was just yesterday!

Cute seating – perfect French bakery style!

And in case you didn’t notice from all the fun and whimsy in the space, Lisa is a complete blast to work with, joke with, hang out with, etc. If you’re visiting Minneapolis, stop by Nadia Cakes for a delicious treat. If you live in Minnesota, call Lisa Klinger for your next design project! Congrats to Lisa on an EXCELLENT design!!
