Can you hear me screaming? I'm sorry but that's probably because I can't stop since I saw this amazing place! The happy and vibrant studio designed by talented Emily Henderson for a lovely graphic designer - Joy from Oh joy blog, combines all the elements I love about interior design and decorating. I mean WOW, this must be one of the most beautifully styled spaces I have ever seen! But before I'll speak about all the gorgeous details, a little back story. After eight years of running successful business from home, Joy found a promising studio in Hollywood to work from. This is when Emily Henderson came in and together they created this 'grown up Candyland' - as Joy says. It's just so inspiring, happy and colorful, isn't it?
So let's see what are the details that make it so special!
The studio is 1,200 feet (let me quickly convert.....366 m2. Correct!) with clearly divided areas, designed for different purposes, very tall ceilings, exposed brick walls, wooden beams and lots of natural light - this already sounds like a perfect place to start, right? Combined with white walls, warm wood furniture, pop of color here and there (everywhere!) and gold touches the studio has become an unbeaten treasure. And I'm officially jealous. Yep, I want a studio like this as well.
The general design direction was to translate Joy's personality into her brand new design space. It had to be happy, fun, young and colorful. This is why the walls were painted white, crazy right? But since people who love color, like being surrounded by colorful objects, neutral background usually works best for exposing them.
The emerald green Murphy's sofa in the sitting area together with this beautiful floor-to-ceiling wall art creates a very comfortable, welcoming and pretty place for visiting clients.
Are you in the mood for a little DIY? Because another highlight of the studio are customized details - my favorite one is a decorative, pretty toe-kick made from contact paper and tape. It's easy, cheap and super cool! Thank you Emily or this great idea - I'm so going to pimp my white toe-kicks at home. Full tutorial can be found here. Toe-kicks here I come!
