Behind The Scenes: How We Style A Room
Hey everybody! Nowadays the content staff is taking more than the website! Our names are Jenna and Ramona, and amongst the two of us we build and create most of the written content you see on Juniper Print Store & Jenny’s weblog. We thought it would be exciting to give you a powering the scenes glimpse at how we style new Juniper prints in our studio house! We ordinarily model among 3-10 prints a week, and those photographs are employed for the print store web site, social media, and style written content for Jenny’s website. This 7 days we are styling Vale by Laurel-Dawn Latshaw. She experienced 4 new prints strike the print store this 7 days!! You can store her selection below.
Right before shifting to our current business house, we had a vivid and attractive studio (test out a tour of our old house right here) that was best for photography, and we grew definitely accustomed to styling most of our Juniper Print Shop content material in-residence. Our recent space has far more of a warehouse really feel, which has produced that a obstacle! Previous yr we have been ready to have a couple of studio sets developed in the back of one particular of our place of work spaces to give the look and sense of a real house. The sets are entire with relocating walls, faux home windows, changeable wall moldings and two unique forms of flooring, which implies we can develop completely unique rooms each time we type!
The initially step is determining what kind of area we want to build. We typically rotate between residing rooms, bedrooms, or entry spaces. We knew we preferred this print to be oversized, so we made a decision on living room so we could cling it more than a couch. Our studio place has various wall molding choices we can swap in and out to give each and every styled house a fully exceptional look, so we opted for a conventional wainscoting in this article.
Upcoming we determine on our colour scheme. A person of our favored pieces of styling on a established is getting to use pleasurable, daring paint colors. Although most folks are normally drawn to a neutral palette for household interiors, our studio house is the great location to experiment with punchier hues. We count closely on our Benjamin Moore and Farrow & Ball paint decks. (Even if you are not a designer, a supporter deck can be tremendous valuable to assistance visualize colors in your house!) We typically select our wall colour centered on the tones of the print we are styling. We like to pull a lesser made use of tone in the art, or a complimentary shade. For this specific print, we chose a muted environmentally friendly by Benjamin Moore named Desert Twilight, that performed definitely perfectly the the muddy blue-green tones the artist made use of.
Right after settling on our paint, we decide on a body coloration. When styling more compact sized prints, we ordinarily stick with all set-designed frames in neutral shades like white, black, gold or wooden. For this area we are heading with an oversized print, which usually means applying the Ikea Bjorksta body. The Bjorksta frame only will come in black or silver, so we love to spray paint it to get a new search! Final year we wrote a truly practical post about our “Tried & True” spray paint colors and manufactured these small sample frame pieces that we use to pick a frame shade all the time. We understood we wished to pair a gold or brass finish with this print, so we introduced out a couple favorites. We ended up settling on Rustoleum’s Satin Bronze.

When we finalize our shade scheme, we come to a decision on what household furniture we want to use in the room. Since we went with a daring wall color, we made the decision to keep the sofa neutral. We definitely beloved the way this white slip included sofa popped against the eco-friendly.
Following up is selecting a rug. Rugs can be tough, so we often like to have something in intellect early on in the layout system. We weren’t confident if we desired to use a bolder, striped solution or a thing classic influenced. We really like Loloi rugs, so we pulled in 3 that we a short while ago extra to our prop assortment. (If you are in the marketplace we remarkably suggest the one on the suitable. It is SO unbelievably soft!)

Once we narrowed down our decisions, we introduced them into the place to see how they looked. Although the 3 vintage-inspired rugs looked stunning with the wall colour, they all felt a little as well pink for the print, so we decided on the stripe.
Subsequent up is introducing smaller furniture. Styling for a photo can be a great deal various than styling for an real residing area. In your residence you’d commonly make options centered on how you dwell and perform inside the room. For a image, we tend to aim a lot more on scale, form and visible harmony. We made a decision on a wooden dresser as an oversized side table. Acquiring the further top on this facet of the body gave the desk lamp extra visible stability with the ground lamp and curtains on the other side. We layered in an added wooden side desk to make some dimension, and then experimented with a number of various coffee tables, in advance of finally selecting on two small ottomans. This allows the foreground of the body to come to feel lighter and keeps your eye transferring all over the place.

The subsequent phase (and from time to time the hardest) is choosing pillows. Pillows can rapidly transform the truly feel of a room, so it is always superior to have a shade palette and style in thoughts. We’ve collected so many pillows above the many years. We generally find great picks at Focus on and other major box stores, but our absolute preferred put to supply pillows is on Etsy!
Classic Kilim pillows are a staple close to in this article, and we appreciate pairing them with modern day prints. We often advocate applying a high top quality down insert, it will make these kinds of a huge variation in how your pillows glimpse and experience!

If you opt for shades and styles that you appreciate, it will come to feel ideal to you!

Just after some demo and error, we eventually narrowed down our selections to just a few. For the reason that we ordinarily want the artwork to be the target of our pictures, we test to decide pillows that engage in off the colors of the print with no overpowering the house.

1 of the last measures in the styling procedure is incorporating in a layer of decor. This can contain baskets, vases, trays… genuinely anything at all you love! We have a Massive choice of styling items below in our studio. We like to blend colors, elements, and sometimes add in items that are a very little little bit funky or weird.
We are often on the hunt for new attractive items. We come across a whole lot of our compact decor at classic suppliers and thrift retailers. We also love to buy new goods to check out right before incorporating them to the Shop Our Finds section of the web site! Some decor goods get utilized a number of situations ahead of getting donated or passed on to good friends, spouse and children or coworkers, though other people have been in our rotation for Decades! Do you location any pieces from earlier Juniper projects?!
The final move is introducing greenery and flowers. Even in a studio room, clean florals are a should!!
We often try to prevent by our area Trader Joes on image shoot times, but we use standard grocery store flowers all the time and nobody is the wiser. As extended as you know what you are on the lookout for, you can resource beautiful bouquets from nearly everywhere! Some of our favorites are peonies, alstroemeria, ranunculus, chamomile, dahlias, mums, and we often really like seeded eucalyptus for some greenery!
