Oh JoyOh Joy

my new studio {work in progress}...

We've been working away on setting up the new Oh Joy studio space, so I wanted to share some inspiration and a little sneak peek with you guys! My friend Emily Henderson (or "EmHen," as we like to call her around here), is helping us design the studio. Emily has the uncanny ability to be able to imagine spaces and where things should go in a way I could never do. Plus, her sense of design is simply off the chain. She takes what I like and kicks it up a notch, for sure.

Here's a look at the "before" space and some of our inspiration. When she asked me what I envisioned, I told her I wanted it to be really white and bright, with accents of bright colors. Since there are some brick walls, I also wanted to enhance the warmth with woods, gray (my favorite non-colorful color), and, of course, a little pop of gold here and there.

Oh-joy-studio-progress-2We're also doing some really fun DIY's including one to the floor that involve about 12 rolls of painters tape. Here's a little peek from Instagram (where I'll be sharing even more peeks as we progress).

You can also follow along with more of my studio inspiration over on our board on Pinterest, where I'm sharing even more studio inspiration, and see if you can imagine how it's all going to turn out. Stay tuned for some "after" photos within the next few months! I can't wait to have it all come together and be the place where my team and I can work, design, and create some exciting new things...

P.S. I'll be the keynote speaker at Alt For Everyone (the online version of the awesome blogger conference) in a couple weeks! Click here to sign-up and for the full schedule.
