Hey all people! Nowadays the written content group is using around the site! Our names are Jenna and Ramona, and amongst the two of us we make and generate most of the content you see on Juniper Print Shop & Jenny’s web site. We believed it would be exciting to give you a at the rear of the scenes search at how we design new Juniper prints in our studio space! We ordinarily design and style concerning 3-10 prints a week, and individuals pictures are applied for the print store website, social media, and design information for Jenny’s blog site. This 7 days we are styling Vale by Laurel-Dawn Latshaw. She experienced 4 new prints hit the print shop this week!!  You can store her selection in this article

In advance of moving to our recent workplace area, we had a shiny and lovely studio (look at out a tour of our previous room listed here) that was suitable for pictures, and we grew seriously accustomed to styling most of our Juniper Print Shop written content in-household. Our latest area has much more of a warehouse truly feel, which has designed that a obstacle! Last 12 months we ended up able to have a couple of studio sets developed in the back again of 1 of our office spaces to give the glance and feel of a serious residence. The sets are total with relocating partitions, fake windows, changeable wall moldings and two diverse sorts of flooring, which signifies we can generate completely distinctive rooms each and every time we design and style!

The to start with stage is selecting what kind of place we want to develop. We usually rotate in between residing rooms, bedrooms, or entry areas. We understood we desired this print to be oversized, so we determined on living place so we could hold it more than a sofa. Our studio house has multiple wall molding choices we can swap in and out to give every styled room a completely exceptional appear, so we opted for a traditional wainscoting below.

Next we decide on our color plan. A single of our favored pieces of styling on a established is getting to use fun, daring paint colours. Although most individuals are normally drawn to a neutral palette for  dwelling interiors, our studio room is the fantastic spot to experiment with punchier hues. We depend intensely on our Benjamin Moore and Farrow & Ball paint decks. (Even if you aren’t a designer, a lover deck can be tremendous handy to help visualize colours in your space!) We generally decide our wall shade primarily based on the tones of the print we are styling. We like to pull a lesser made use of tone in the artwork, or a complimentary shade. For this distinct print, we chose a muted environmentally friendly by Benjamin Moore named Desert Twilight, that played really properly the the muddy blue-eco-friendly tones the artist employed. 

After settling on our paint, we pick a body shade. When styling scaled-down sized prints, we typically adhere with prepared-produced frames in neutral shades like white, black, gold or wooden. For this house we are going with an outsized print, which indicates working with the Ikea Bjorksta body. The Bjorksta body only arrives in black or silver, so we adore to spray paint it to get a new appear! Last yr we wrote a truly beneficial put up about our “Tried & True” spray paint shades and produced these little sample body parts that we use to choose a body coloration all the time.  We realized we wished to pair a gold or brass complete with this print, so we introduced out a handful of favorites. We ended up settling on Rustoleum’s Satin Bronze

As soon as we finalize our coloration scheme, we determine on what furnishings we want to use in the place. Due to the fact we went with a daring wall shade, we made the decision to continue to keep the sofa neutral. We truly beloved the way this white slip covered sofa popped versus the inexperienced.

Next up is picking a rug. Rugs can be challenging, so we generally like to have a thing in brain early on in the layout course of action. We weren’t guaranteed if we required to use a bolder, striped option or one thing classic motivated. We appreciate Loloi rugs, so we pulled in three that we lately added to our prop collection. (If you are in the market place we remarkably advise the one on the appropriate. It is SO unbelievably tender!)

At the time we narrowed down our possibilities, we brought them into the area to see how they looked. Whilst the three classic-motivated rugs looked lovely with the wall shade, they all felt a tiny also pink for the print, so we made a decision on the stripe. 

Upcoming up is including tiny furnishings. Styling for a image can be a good deal distinct than styling for an actual residing place. In your property you’d usually make selections dependent on how you reside and function within just the place. For a photograph, we are inclined to target much more on scale, form and visual equilibrium. We decided on a wooden dresser as an oversized side table. Obtaining the extra height on this facet of the body gave the table lamp far more visible harmony with the flooring lamp and curtains on the other side. We layered in an added wooden facet desk to make some dimension, and then attempted a few distinctive coffee tables, right before finally selecting on two smaller ottomans.  This can help the foreground of the body to really feel lighter and retains your eye shifting during the room.

The future move (and in some cases the toughest) is choosing pillows. Pillows can rapidly modify the experience of a room, so it is always very good to have a coloration palette and design in brain. We’ve collected so several pillows in excess of the many years. We constantly locate good picks at Focus on and other massive box shops, but our absolute preferred put to source pillows is on Etsy!

Classic Kilim pillows are a staple close to below, and we love pairing them with modern prints. We normally propose working with a substantial high-quality down insert, it will make these kinds of a substantial change in how your pillows search and come to feel! If you require enable with your pillow variety, verify out our “Recipe For The Best Pillow Combination” article! Really don’t above-tension about obtaining it far too “perfect”. If you decide on colours and patterns that you appreciate, it will experience fantastic to you!

Soon after some trial and mistake, we eventually narrowed down our choices to just a several. Simply because we normally want the art to be the emphasis of our images, we attempt to decide on pillows that enjoy off the colours of the print without having overpowering the area.

One particular of the past techniques in the styling process is introducing in a layer of decor. This can consist of baskets, vases, trays… truly something you like!
