Behind The Scenes: How We Style A Room

Hey all people! Today the material team is using around the site! Our names are Jenna and Ramona, and concerning the two of us we make and generate most of the content you see on Juniper Print Store & Jenny’s site. We assumed it would be enjoyable to give you a powering the scenes appear at how we model new Juniper prints in our studio room! We ordinarily design and style among 3-10 prints a week, and these images are utilised for the print store website, social media, and layout content for Jenny’s blog site. This 7 days we are styling Vale by Laurel-Dawn Latshaw. She experienced 4 new prints hit the print shop this week!!  You can store her collection listed here

Ahead of going to our current office environment house, we had a vibrant and gorgeous studio (check out a tour of our old room below) that was ideal for pictures, and we grew genuinely accustomed to styling most of our Juniper Print Store material in-house. Our present-day space has extra of a warehouse truly feel, which has built that a challenge! Final yr we have been equipped to have a number of studio sets constructed in the back of a single of our office spaces to give the look and experience of a actual residence. The sets are finish with moving walls, faux windows, changeable wall moldings and two unique styles of flooring, which usually means we can create entirely exceptional rooms each individual time we fashion!


The very first action is selecting what type of room we want to create. We ordinarily rotate in between residing rooms, bedrooms, or entry spaces. We realized we desired this print to be oversized, so we decided on dwelling home so we could dangle it about a sofa. Our studio space has multiple wall molding choices we can swap in and out to give each individual styled room a absolutely unique seem, so we opted for a conventional wainscoting here.


Up coming we choose on our coloration scheme. A person of our favorite areas of styling on a set is having to use exciting, bold paint colors. Though most folks are generally drawn to a neutral palette for  residence interiors, our studio place is the ideal put to experiment with punchier hues. We count greatly on our Benjamin Moore and Farrow & Ball paint decks. (Even if you aren’t a designer, a admirer deck can be tremendous handy to aid visualize hues in your area!) We typically decide our wall coloration based on the tones of the print we are styling. We like to pull a lesser made use of tone in the artwork, or a complimentary shade. For this specific print, we chose a muted green by Benjamin Moore called Desert Twilight, that performed really effectively the the muddy blue-green tones the artist applied. 

Right after settling on our paint, we decide on a body coloration. When styling smaller sized sized prints, we typically adhere with prepared-made frames in neutral shades like white, black, gold or wooden. For this house we are going with an outsized print, which signifies employing 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 glance! Last 12 months we wrote a truly beneficial submit about our “Tried & True” spray paint shades and built these little sample body items that we use to pick out a frame shade all the time.  We knew we required to pair a gold or brass end with this print, so we introduced out a several favorites. We finished up settling on Rustoleum’s Satin Bronze

When we finalize our colour scheme, we make a decision on what furniture we want to use in the room. Due to the fact we went with a daring wall shade, we determined to hold the couch neutral. We actually liked the way this white slip included couch popped in opposition to the eco-friendly.


Future up is deciding on a rug. Rugs can be tough, so we normally like to have something in head early on in the layout procedure. We weren’t sure if we wished to use a bolder, striped solution or something classic motivated. We enjoy Loloi rugs, so we pulled in three that we just lately extra to our prop collection. (If you are in the industry we highly advocate the just one on the proper. It is SO unbelievably soft!)

At the time we narrowed down our alternatives, we brought them into the place to see how they appeared. When the three classic-influenced rugs seemed stunning with the wall shade, they all felt a minimal too pink for the print, so we made a decision on the stripe. 

Following up is adding smaller household furniture. Styling for a image can be a large amount distinct than styling for an precise living home. In your house you’d generally make possibilities based mostly on how you stay and functionality inside the room. For a photo, we are inclined to target a lot more on scale, form and visual harmony. We determined on a wood dresser as an oversized aspect table. Owning the more height on this aspect of the frame gave the desk lamp far more visible stability with the ground lamp and curtains on the other aspect. We layered in an further wooden side table to make some dimension, and then tried out a couple various coffee tables, prior to in the long run choosing on two modest ottomans.  This assists the foreground of the frame to sense lighter and retains your eye relocating throughout the area.

The following move (and in some cases the most difficult) is deciding on pillows. Pillows can speedily improve the really feel of a area, so it’s constantly excellent to have a color palette and design in intellect. We’ve gathered so quite a few pillows above the a long time. We usually find great picks at Focus on and other massive box retailers, but our complete favored spot to resource pillows is on Etsy!

Vintage Kilim pillows are a staple all around listed here, and we adore pairing them with present day prints. We generally suggest employing a superior good quality down insert, it will make such a enormous variation in how your pillows look and feel!

If you pick out shades and styles that you love, it will really feel fantastic to you!

Just after some demo and mistake, we eventually narrowed down our picks to just a few. Because we commonly want the art to be the focus of our photographs, we test to choose pillows that participate in off the hues of the print without overpowering the room.

Just one of the very last actions in the styling course of action is introducing in a layer of decor. This can contain baskets, vases, trays… truly something you really like! We have a Large range of styling pieces listed here in our studio. We enjoy to combine colors, elements, and from time to time include in parts that are a little bit funky or weird.

We also appreciate to purchase new objects to exam out in advance of introducing them to the Shop Our Finds area of the web page! Some decor objects get applied a number of moments right before becoming donated or handed on to friends, loved ones or coworkers, when many others have been in our rotation for Decades!
