Behind The Scenes: How We Style A Room


Hey anyone! Right now the material team is getting about the web site! Our names are Jenna and Ramona, and concerning the two of us we create and generate most of the content you see on Juniper Print Store & Jenny’s blog. We assumed it would be enjoyment to give you a at the rear of the scenes seem at how we design new Juniper prints in our studio room! We typically model involving 3-10 prints a 7 days, and people pictures are used for the print store website, social media, and structure content material for Jenny’s weblog. This 7 days we are styling Vale by Laurel-Dawn Latshaw. She had 4 new prints strike the print shop this week!!  You can shop her collection in this article

In advance of shifting to our existing office environment room, we experienced a dazzling and attractive studio (check out out a tour of our old place in this article) that was great for images, and we grew really accustomed to styling most of our Juniper Print Shop information in-household. Our present-day room has a lot more of a warehouse experience, which has manufactured that a obstacle! Previous yr we ended up able to have a handful of studio sets developed in the back again of just one of our workplace areas to give the glance and truly feel of a genuine household. The sets are complete with transferring walls, faux windows, changeable wall moldings and two different types of flooring, which suggests we can produce absolutely distinctive rooms every single time we type!


The 1st stage is choosing what variety of house we want to build. We ordinarily rotate involving living rooms, bedrooms, or entry spaces. We understood we wanted this print to be oversized, so we made the decision on living area so we could hang it over a couch. Our studio place has several wall molding alternatives we can swap in and out to give each individual styled area a entirely exclusive appear, so we opted for a standard wainscoting listed here.


Upcoming we determine on our shade plan. Just one of our most loved elements of styling on a established is acquiring to use pleasurable, bold paint shades. Even though most men and women are generally drawn to a neutral palette for  dwelling interiors, our studio space is the best spot to experiment with punchier hues. We rely intensely on our Benjamin Moore and Farrow & Ball paint decks. (Even if you are not a designer, a lover deck can be super useful to enable visualize shades in your room!) We usually decide our wall colour based mostly 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 individual print, we selected a muted green by Benjamin Moore identified as Desert Twilight, that performed definitely nicely the the muddy blue-green tones the artist applied. 

Immediately after settling on our paint, we decide on a frame shade. When styling more compact sized prints, we typically stick with completely ready-designed frames in neutral shades like white, black, gold or wooden. For this place we are likely with an oversized print, which indicates working with the Ikea Bjorksta frame. The Bjorksta frame only will come in black or silver, so we appreciate to spray paint it to get a new look! Previous year we wrote a truly valuable post about our “Tried & True” spray paint colours and manufactured these little sample frame pieces that we use to decide on a body colour all the time.  We understood we wanted to pair a gold or brass complete with this print, so we introduced out a few favorites. We ended up settling on Rustoleum’s Satin Bronze

At the time we finalize our colour scheme, we make your mind up on what household furniture we want to use in the space. Since we went with a bold wall coloration, we decided to hold the sofa neutral. We actually loved the way this white slip covered sofa popped from the inexperienced.


Next up is deciding on a rug. Rugs can be tough, so we usually like to have some thing in intellect early on in the design and style method. We weren’t guaranteed if we wanted to use a bolder, striped alternative or one thing classic influenced. We enjoy Loloi rugs, so we pulled in 3 that we recently added to our prop selection. (If you are in the marketplace we hugely propose the a single on the ideal. It is SO unbelievably comfortable!)

When we narrowed down our alternatives, we introduced them into the house to see how they looked. While the a few vintage-inspired rugs seemed stunning with the wall shade, they all felt a small way too pink for the print, so we made a decision on the stripe. 

Future up is including smaller furnishings. Styling for a photograph can be a great deal distinct than styling for an true living area. In your home you’d typically make decisions based on how you stay and operate in the room. For a image, we are likely to focus more on scale, form and visual stability. We made a decision on a wooden dresser as an outsized aspect desk. Getting the additional top on this facet of the frame gave the table lamp more visible stability with the ground lamp and curtains on the other aspect. We layered in an added wood side table to develop some dimension, and then experimented with a several distinctive coffee tables, in advance of finally choosing on two smaller ottomans.  This aids the foreground of the frame to feel lighter and keeps your eye moving all over the space.

The next move (and occasionally the most difficult) is picking pillows. Pillows can rapidly transform the experience of a area, so it’s often fantastic to have a color palette and design and style in thoughts. We have collected so quite a few pillows over the decades. We usually come across fantastic picks at Focus on and other significant box retailers, but our absolute favourite spot to resource pillows is on Etsy!

Vintage Kilim pillows are a staple about below, and we enjoy pairing them with present day prints. We constantly endorse utilizing a significant good quality down insert, it will make these types of a large distinction in how your pillows look and experience!

If you opt for colours and designs that you really like, it will really feel fantastic to you!

Right after some trial and error, we lastly narrowed down our choices to just a couple of. For the reason that we ordinarily want the artwork to be the emphasis of our photos, we test to choose pillows that participate in off the colours of the print with no overpowering the area.

One particular of the last methods in the styling system is incorporating in a layer of decor. This can include things like baskets, vases, trays… really something you like! We have a Enormous choice of styling items below in our studio. We appreciate to mix shades, supplies, and from time to time include in items that are a tiny little bit funky or odd.

We are normally on the hunt for new decorative items. We locate a great deal of our compact decor at classic retailers and thrift outlets. We also adore to buy new objects to test out just before incorporating them to the Store Our Finds part of the internet site! Some decor goods get made use of a couple of situations in advance of currently being donated or passed on to buddies, family or coworkers, whilst other folks have been in our rotation for Several years! Do you spot any parts from earlier Juniper initiatives?!

The final move is introducing greenery and flowers. Even in a studio area, fresh florals are a should!!

As lengthy as you know what you’re wanting for, you can resource wonderful flowers from nearly any where! Some of our favorites are peonies, alstroemeria, ranunculus, chamomile, dahlias, mums, and we often appreciate seeded eucalyptus for some greenery!
