Behind The Scenes: How We Style A Room


Hey anyone! Today the content material crew is getting above the blog! Our names are Jenna and Ramona, and concerning the two of us we produce and create most of the information you see on Juniper Print Store & Jenny’s blog. We believed it would be enjoyment to give you a behind the scenes look at how we fashion new Juniper prints in our studio area! We usually fashion involving 3-10 prints a 7 days, and people visuals are applied for the print store web site, social media, and design and style content material for Jenny’s blog site. This week we are styling Vale by Laurel-Dawn Latshaw. She experienced 4 new prints strike the print store this 7 days!!  You can shop her collection right here

In advance of relocating to our existing office area, we experienced a dazzling and wonderful studio (examine out a tour of our old place in this article) that was perfect for pictures, and we grew really accustomed to styling most of our Juniper Print Store articles in-house. Our existing house has much more of a warehouse experience, which has created that a challenge! Final yr we have been in a position to have a couple of studio sets built in the back again of 1 of our workplace areas to give the glance and really feel of a authentic dwelling. The sets are complete with moving walls, fake windows, changeable wall moldings and two various types of flooring, which signifies we can develop completely exceptional rooms each time we fashion!

The initial action is determining what sort of house we want to generate. We normally rotate in between dwelling rooms, bedrooms, or entry areas. We knew we wanted this print to be outsized, so we made the decision on living space so we could hang it about a sofa. Our studio area has many wall molding possibilities we can swap in and out to give every single styled room a fully one of a kind search, so we opted for a classic wainscoting right here.

Next we come to a decision on our color scheme. One particular of our most loved elements of styling on a established is acquiring to use exciting, bold paint colors. Even though most people today are usually drawn to a neutral palette for  home interiors, our studio area is the fantastic area 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 admirer deck can be super useful to support visualize shades in your room!) We generally choose our wall shade dependent 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 particular print, we chose a muted inexperienced by Benjamin Moore named Desert Twilight, that performed definitely very well the the muddy blue-eco-friendly tones the artist utilized. 

Just after settling on our paint, we select a body shade. When styling smaller sized prints, we usually adhere with ready-designed frames in neutral shades like white, black, gold or wood. For this place we are going with an oversized print, which signifies utilizing the Ikea Bjorksta frame. The Bjorksta frame only will come in black or silver, so we love to spray paint it to get a new search! Past calendar year we wrote a truly handy publish about our “Tried & True” spray paint colors and manufactured these very little sample frame parts that we use to select a frame coloration all the time.  We knew we required to pair a gold or brass complete with this print, so we brought out a few favorites. We finished up settling on Rustoleum’s Satin Bronze

When we finalize our coloration scheme, we come to a decision on what furniture we want to use in the place. Considering that we went with a daring wall colour, we resolved to maintain the couch neutral. We definitely loved the way this white slip lined sofa popped in opposition to the eco-friendly.

Upcoming up is deciding upon a rug. Rugs can be challenging, so we generally like to have some thing in mind early on in the style and design method. We weren’t confident if we required to use a bolder, striped choice or some thing classic inspired. We enjoy Loloi rugs, so we pulled in three that we a short while ago added to our prop assortment. (If you are in the sector we very endorse the a person on the right. It is SO unbelievably soft!)

Once we narrowed down our possibilities, we introduced them into the house to see how they looked. When the a few classic-motivated rugs seemed attractive with the wall colour, they all felt a very little way too pink for the print, so we made a decision on the stripe. 

Following up is incorporating small household furniture. Styling for a picture can be a ton unique than styling for an true dwelling area. In your house you’d usually make selections based on how you are living and purpose in just the area. For a picture, we are likely to aim extra on scale, condition and visual stability. We resolved on a wooden dresser as an outsized facet desk. Owning the additional height on this side of the frame gave the table lamp additional visual harmony with the flooring lamp and curtains on the other aspect. We layered in an supplemental wood facet desk to generate some dimension, and then attempted a couple of diverse coffee tables, before finally selecting on two little ottomans.  This helps the foreground of the body to come to feel lighter and retains your eye transferring in the course of the place.

The upcoming move (and often the most difficult) is picking pillows. Pillows can swiftly transform the truly feel of a room, so it’s always excellent to have a colour palette and fashion in thoughts. We have collected so numerous pillows more than the many years. We often discover very good picks at Goal and other significant box retailers, but our absolute favourite area to resource pillows is on Etsy!

Classic Kilim pillows are a staple around right here, and we like pairing them with modern day prints. We usually suggest utilizing a substantial top quality down insert, it will make these types of a substantial big difference in how your pillows look and experience!

Soon after some demo and error, we ultimately narrowed down our alternatives to just a few. Due to the fact we commonly want the art to be the target of our pictures, we consider to decide on pillows that engage in off the shades of the print devoid of overpowering the house.

1 of the final steps in the styling process is adding in a layer of decor. This can consist of baskets, vases, trays… truly anything at all you really like! We have a Substantial choice of styling parts here in our studio. We love to blend colours, supplies, and from time to time add in parts that are a little bit funky or strange.

We are always on the hunt for new decorative pieces. We discover a large amount of our tiny decor at classic outlets and thrift outlets. We also like to order new things to take a look at out just before adding them to the Store Our Finds segment of the internet site! Some decor objects get applied a couple of occasions in advance of currently being donated or handed on to mates, household or coworkers, while many others have been in our rotation for Decades!
