Behind The Scenes: How We Style A Room

Hey anyone! Currently the written content workforce is taking above the site! Our names are Jenna and Ramona, and concerning the two of us we generate and create most of the material you see on Juniper Print Store & Jenny’s site. We assumed it would be pleasurable to give you a powering the scenes glance at how we type new Juniper prints in our studio room! We normally design and style concerning 3-10 prints a week, and all those images are made use of for the print store web page, social media, and layout content 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 week!!  You can shop her selection here

In advance of going to our current office environment place, we had a bright and gorgeous studio (verify out a tour of our outdated house here) that was ideal for images, and we grew genuinely accustomed to styling most of our Juniper Print Store content material in-house. Our recent place has additional of a warehouse come to feel, which has produced that a problem! Very last 12 months we had been ready to have a couple of studio sets crafted in the again of a person of our workplace areas to give the glance and experience of a serious house. The sets are full with going walls, faux home windows, changeable wall moldings and two distinctive kinds of flooring, which means we can produce thoroughly unique rooms every time we fashion!


The 1st step is deciding what kind of room we want to create. We commonly rotate involving dwelling rooms, bedrooms, or entry spaces. We realized we desired this print to be outsized, so we made a decision on dwelling home so we could hang it about a couch. Our studio place has various wall molding solutions we can swap in and out to give each styled place a totally distinctive glimpse, so we opted for a standard wainscoting below.


Up coming we make your mind up on our shade scheme. One particular of our favored sections of styling on a established is receiving to use pleasurable, daring paint shades. Although most individuals are usually drawn to a neutral palette for  home interiors, our studio area is the excellent location to experiment with punchier hues. We depend heavily on our Benjamin Moore and Farrow & Ball paint decks. (Even if you are not a designer, a enthusiast deck can be super useful to enable visualize colors in your house!) We normally pick our wall color based on the tones of the print we are styling. We like to pull a lesser utilised tone in the art, or a complimentary shade. For this particular print, we chose a muted eco-friendly by Benjamin Moore identified as Desert Twilight, that performed genuinely well the the muddy blue-eco-friendly tones the artist used. 

Right after settling on our paint, we select a frame color. When styling smaller sized sized prints, we generally adhere with prepared-made frames in neutral shades like white, black, gold or wood. For this space we are heading with an outsized print, which means using the Ikea Bjorksta frame. The Bjorksta body only arrives in black or silver, so we appreciate to spray paint it to get a new glimpse! Very last yr we wrote a truly useful submit about our “Tried & True” spray paint shades and created these tiny sample body pieces that we use to select a body coloration all the time.  We understood we desired to pair a gold or brass finish with this print, so we brought out a handful of favorites. We ended up settling on Rustoleum’s Satin Bronze

When we finalize our shade plan, we make a decision on what home furnishings we want to use in the house. Due to the fact we went with a bold wall coloration, we resolved to keep the sofa neutral. We really liked the way this white slip included couch popped against the green.


Up coming up is picking out a rug. Rugs can be tough, so we constantly like to have a thing in mind early on in the design and style system. We weren’t certain if we required to use a bolder, striped possibility or a thing vintage motivated. We adore Loloi rugs, so we pulled in three that we not too long ago additional to our prop selection. (If you are in the sector we very advocate the a single on the appropriate. It is SO unbelievably smooth!)

When we narrowed down our selections, we introduced them into the room to see how they appeared. Whilst the three vintage-encouraged rugs appeared lovely with the wall color, they all felt a tiny too pink for the print, so we resolved on the stripe. 

Next up is adding small home furnishings. Styling for a image can be a good deal various than styling for an real dwelling space. In your dwelling you’d ordinarily make possibilities based mostly on how you live and perform inside of the area. For a image, we have a tendency to target more on scale, shape and visual equilibrium. We made the decision on a wood dresser as an outsized facet desk. Possessing the extra peak on this aspect of the body gave the desk lamp extra visible balance with the flooring lamp and curtains on the other aspect. We layered in an additional wooden side table to make some dimension, and then attempted a few different coffee tables, ahead of in the long run selecting on two compact ottomans.  This will help the foreground of the body to really feel lighter and keeps your eye going all through the place.

The next step (and in some cases the hardest) is choosing pillows. Pillows can rapidly transform the come to feel of a place, so it is often great to have a shade palette and type in head. We have collected so numerous pillows over the several years. We normally locate superior picks at Concentrate on and other big box merchants, but our absolute favorite spot to source pillows is on Etsy!

Classic Kilim pillows are a staple all over below, and we appreciate pairing them with present day prints. We constantly advocate making use of a high good quality down insert, it will make this kind of a large big difference in how your pillows search and sense! If you require assist with your pillow range, look at out our “Recipe For The Great Pillow Combination” put up! Really do not around-strain about receiving it much too “perfect”. If you choose colors and patterns that you adore, it will come to feel best to you!

Immediately after some demo and mistake, we last but not least narrowed down our picks to just a several. Simply because we typically want the artwork to be the emphasis of our photographs, we check out to pick pillows that engage in off the colours of the print without having overpowering the area.

Just one of the very last steps in the styling method is introducing in a layer of decor. This can incorporate baskets, vases, trays… actually something you enjoy! We have a Huge choice of styling items below in our studio. We enjoy to mix hues, components, and often insert in parts that are a minimal little bit funky or odd.

We are normally on the hunt for new attractive parts. We come across a great deal of our smaller decor at vintage outlets and thrift shops. We also appreciate to get new items to test out in advance of adding them to the Store Our Finds part of the web page! Some decor items get used a handful of situations prior to remaining donated or handed on to good friends, spouse and children or coworkers, when others have been in our rotation for Yrs!

The ultimate step is introducing greenery and bouquets. Even in a studio area, fresh new florals are a need to!!

As extensive as you know what you are seeking for, you can supply beautiful bouquets from almost any place! Some of our favorites are peonies, alstroemeria, ranunculus, chamomile, dahlias, mums, and we often really like seeded eucalyptus for some greenery!
