Working Designer Wednesday: Cool Studio Spaces

Sep 28, 2011

I think it’s about time we take a look at some fellow designers’ studio spaces for inspiration. So, let’s start with the brand new studio space of Garden Party Flowers…notice they even created a photography booth inside the studio…to photograph their arrangements for the Garden Party website…and to take pictures to send to clients of the bouquets they order…brilliant!

Next, take a look at Ariel Dearie’s Brooklyn studio…and then check out her website if you’re not familiar with her work…you’ll love the natural vibe of her arrangements…and I love her old wood floors and tall metal windows…

Now, let me ask you a question. If you had the opportunity to design a brand new studio space, what would be on your “must have” list of features? What would be on your “splurge” list?

Have a great Wednesday!

    Thanks for your support Amy, hope our studio gives our fellow designers inspiration for their dream studio.

    If any of your readers have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask!

    #1 Can I move into Stephanie Grace’s client meeting space? LOL! Our shop is minute so I’m already dreaming of a larger space. My must haves? A space large enough to host events and flower arranging classes. There would be a big prep area. Lots of stainless steel I think for quick clean up. A nice spot for consultations. A huge walk in cooler. And tons of display space. Think I’d have an area where people could assemble their own bouquets as well. Ample space for wrapping flowers with tons of gorgeous ribbons in every color and pattern. Oh yeah, and a little break room where I could chill, get off my feet and have a spot of tea. On the splurge list would be a garden in the back where I’d grow herbs and flowers for my bouquets! Is that too much to ask?
