It’s no secret that I live in Boise Idaho. It’s also no secret that I love it here! It’s a magical city with so much potential and room to grow. I moved here almost 17 years ago and wow has it changed since my first year here! The once sleepy city with not a lot of movement has become a hub of creative entrepreneurs who are in it to win it. Over the next few months, I am going to be spotlighting some of my favorite businesses and artistic individuals who make Boise so awesome. First up, Blush By Jamie Rose!
I have known Jamie Rose for awhile, and can I just say that she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside! Jamie fell in love with cosmetics at a very young age. It’s like she was created for this! When she was involved in theater, she was captivated by the artistry of makeup. From there, she pursued a career in the cosmetic industry and worked as a professional artist for years in Seattle, Southern California and Idaho. Her biggest venture was opening a Blush, and it is a true success!
When she first moved in to the space now called Blush, it looked like this….
It was a bit dark and dreary. Jamie had a vision to create a place that felt like you were transported to Paris for the day. She started the transformation by painting the walls the perfect shade of Blush and incorporating neutral floors and furniture. The store is designed to feel soft and light. You will find elegant accents of brushed pewter and gold.
The transformation is beautiful! When you walk around in Blush, you will see lovely details that make the space fabulous. French prints, vintage perfume bottles, gorgeous candelabras, and vintage frames fill the space to add life. Chandi designed all of the lighting. Meredith Clark, the owner and Boise resident, designs each piece with so much creativity. The building itself dates way back, so most of the architecture has a story to tell.
If I ever need my makeup done, I can’t imagine going anywhere else but to Jamie! She has magic fingers! She did my makeup for a recent photo shoot. I did NOT want to wash my face that night. I felt like Cinderella and almost cried when the clock hit midnight….
If you are a Boise resident or you’re coming to visit our amazing city, make sure to stop by Blush and say hello to Jamie Rose!
