Behind The Scenes: How We Style A Room

Hey all people! These days the information workforce is having over the website! Our names are Jenna and Ramona, and between the two of us we develop and deliver most of the content you see on Juniper Print Store & Jenny’s weblog. We considered it would be pleasurable to give you a at the rear of the scenes glimpse at how we type new Juniper prints in our studio area! We usually model concerning 3-10 prints a week, and those people photographs are utilised for the print shop website, social media, and layout information for Jenny’s weblog. This 7 days we are styling Vale by Laurel-Dawn Latshaw. She had 4 new prints hit the print store this 7 days!!  You can store her selection below

Right before shifting to our latest place of work area, we had a brilliant and attractive studio (check out a tour of our aged room listed here) that was ideal for pictures, and we grew actually accustomed to styling most of our Juniper Print Store content material in-residence. Our present-day house has a lot more of a warehouse sense, which has built that a problem! Very last yr we were being in a position to have a couple of studio sets designed in the again of one particular of our office environment spaces to give the search and really feel of a real property. The sets are finish with going walls, faux windows, changeable wall moldings and two diverse kinds of flooring, which indicates we can produce absolutely one of a kind rooms every time we model!


The first step is selecting what variety of area we want to make. We usually rotate in between dwelling rooms, bedrooms, or entry spaces. We realized we wished this print to be outsized, so we made the decision on residing area so we could hold it more than a couch. Our studio space has numerous wall molding selections we can swap in and out to give every styled place a totally exceptional glance, so we opted for a common wainscoting here.


Next we come to a decision on our coloration scheme. One particular of our favored elements of styling on a set is finding to use fun, bold paint shades. When most people today are typically drawn to a neutral palette for  household interiors, our studio area is the great location to experiment with punchier hues. We rely closely on our Benjamin Moore and Farrow & Ball paint decks. (Even if you aren’t a designer, a fan deck can be tremendous useful to enable visualize colors in your house!) We generally decide on our wall colour centered on the tones of the print we are styling. We like to pull a lesser used tone in the art, or a complimentary shade. For this unique print, we chose a muted eco-friendly by Benjamin Moore known as Desert Twilight, that played truly perfectly the the muddy blue-inexperienced tones the artist used. 

Following settling on our paint, we choose a body colour. When styling more compact sized prints, we normally adhere with ready-manufactured frames in neutral shades like white, black, gold or wood. For this room we are going with an oversized print, which signifies employing the Ikea Bjorksta body. The Bjorksta body only arrives in black or silver, so we love to spray paint it to get a new appear! Final calendar year we wrote a genuinely valuable submit about our “Tried & True” spray paint shades and produced these little sample frame items that we use to pick a frame colour all the time.  We knew we wished to pair a gold or brass end with this print, so we brought out a couple of favorites. We ended up settling on Rustoleum’s Satin Bronze

After we finalize our coloration plan, we decide on what furniture we want to use in the space. Given that we went with a bold wall color, we decided to continue to keep the sofa neutral. We genuinely cherished the way this white slip included sofa popped from the green.


Subsequent up is deciding on a rug. Rugs can be challenging, so we constantly like to have something in intellect early on in the design approach. We weren’t sure if we wished to use a bolder, striped choice or one thing classic motivated. We adore Loloi rugs, so we pulled in 3 that we recently included to our prop selection. (If you are in the market we remarkably advocate the one particular on the ideal. It is SO unbelievably tender!)

The moment we narrowed down our alternatives, we brought them into the area to see how they looked. Whilst the three vintage-inspired rugs seemed stunning with the wall coloration, they all felt a minor far too pink for the print, so we determined on the stripe. 

Following up is introducing tiny home furniture. Styling for a image can be a large amount distinct than styling for an precise residing space. In your home you’d typically make possibilities primarily based on how you live and purpose inside the area. For a photo, we tend to aim much more on scale, shape and visual balance. We decided on a wooden dresser as an oversized facet table. Possessing the excess height on this side of the frame gave the desk lamp far more visible stability with the ground lamp and curtains on the other side. We layered in an additional wood aspect table to build some dimension, and then attempted a few different espresso tables, prior to finally choosing on two small ottomans.  This can help the foreground of the frame to truly feel lighter and retains your eye transferring all over the space.

The future move (and from time to time the toughest) is choosing pillows. Pillows can promptly transform the feel of a home, so it is normally superior to have a shade palette and design and style in intellect. We’ve collected so quite a few pillows in excess of the many years. We generally find excellent picks at Target and other massive box shops, but our complete favorite location to supply pillows is on Etsy!

Vintage Kilim pillows are a staple around here, and we really like pairing them with fashionable prints. We usually endorse using a significant high-quality down insert, it will make this kind of a huge difference in how your pillows search and feel! If you will need support with your pillow range, check out our “Recipe For The Perfect Pillow Combination” publish! Don’t over-tension about finding it also “perfect”. If you decide on hues and patterns that you really like, it will feel ideal to you!

Immediately after some trial and error, we lastly narrowed down our alternatives to just a handful of. Mainly because we usually want the artwork to be the target of our images, we consider to choose pillows that perform off the shades of the print without the need of overpowering the area.

One of the very last measures in the styling system is incorporating in a layer of decor. This can contain baskets, vases, trays… actually something you adore! We have a Enormous range of styling pieces below in our studio. We appreciate to mix hues, resources, and at times insert in pieces that are a very little little bit funky or weird.

We are generally on the hunt for new decorative parts. We discover a great deal of our smaller decor at vintage stores and thrift shops. We also really like to get new items to test out in advance of introducing them to the Shop Our Finds part of the internet site! Some decor items get made use of a handful of times right before currently being donated or passed on to buddies, family members or coworkers, even though other folks have been in our rotation for Several years! Do you location any pieces from previous Juniper assignments?!

The final action is including greenery and flowers. Even in a studio house, new florals are a have to!!

We often try to prevent by our local Trader Joes on picture shoot times, but we use normal grocery retailer flowers all the time and nobody is the wiser. As prolonged as you know what you’re searching for, you can resource lovely flowers from virtually any where! Some of our favorites are peonies, alstroemeria, ranunculus, chamomile, dahlias, mums, and we always love seeded eucalyptus for some greenery!
