Design Solutions, Oakdale CA!
I had the opportunity to head to one of my best friends store grand openings on Saturday. Design Solutions recently opened in Oakdale, CA and let me just tell you, it’s amazing!! My best friend and her mom opened the store and it is so dreamy. Melinda’s mom, Lupe has been in the design industry for years and not only does she have this amazing store, she can also decorate your entire home with just one phone call. Okay, not really, but to get the process started, all you have to do is call.
The store is a mixture of Joanna Gaines meets Potterybarn. I love all the natural colors and tones that come to life in this store. It is so peaceful when you walk in. Not to mention, i’m pretty sure I would be very happy if I could just have one of everything. Melinda and her mom originally had this store in a shared space in Turlock but decided to expand and i’m so glad they did. Now there are even more items for me to purchase.
More than a store…
Beyond the fact that they have incredible inventory, I love the ambiance when you walk in. I had great respect for these two ladies because their business sense is impressive, but their love for God is even more admirable. I originally met Melinda when I started being a youth leader at my church almost two years ago. Instantly, we became friends. Like she said on Saturday, we are pretty much the same person but we are completely different. After I found out that I was moving to Napa, I had about a week to move. I called her and begged her to come help me pack. Well after one large box, I got tired and told Melinda, “Let’s just watch a movie.” It was then, in that moment, we came to the conclusion that I was Rachel and she was Monica from the show Friends. I am so blessed that God brought her into my life. She constantly shows me grace and provides the best Godly advice when I need it.
If you are in the area or want to make a special trip, I highly recommend that you stop by the store. It is so beautiful and includes so many gorgeous things.
Hope you all have a wonderful day! God bless!
