The Studio Tour! (and a HUGE Give Away from Domino and Keep!)

We've been working hard to decorate my little studio space this month! It's been SO fun to finally add color to the all-white room! I have a million projects to share with you all soon (Here are the tutorials on the DIY plywood floors and the baseboards, in case you missed them.)

Just like in my home and in my client's spaces, I wanted a good mix of vintage and new furniture and accessories in this space. I had been doing a little too much vintage shopping lately (gasp! possible?!) and we needed some newer pieces to sort of brighten the look up. My pink ikat Henredon sofas, the Widdicomb table-turned desk, the seriously beat up Plycraft chair, the reupholstered leopard Eames management chairs, the old Italian marble coffee table, etc. -- basically everything in the space was vintage, except the IKEA DIY malachite pattern desk.

Domino and I teamed up with Keep.com to add a few of those new pieces I so desperately needed to my vintage mix, and I love what we came up with. But here's the great news: you can enter HERE to win a $2000 GIFT CARD to Domino's shop! Instant remedy for those of you in vintage overwhelm (like I was), or those of you who want vintage style, but don't love the endless hunt/bedbugs. :)

Here are the pieces I chose from the Domino shop, and a ton more photos of our studio below:

Let's start by the back door. We have the malachite desk along the west wall and I put the just-delivered, freshly reupholstered Plycraft chair just next to that. I love how it looks next to the new Safavieh table. That thing is SOLID. Seriously built to last. The table top is a beautiful piece of sparkly marble and the tapered legs are gilded iron. The base has a really pretty organic quality - sort of perfectly imperfect.

The horn vases are my favorite for office supplies, but I've used them for flowers before too and the mix of textures is really beautiful.

The New Yorker cover from the 60s was a Conde Nast Store find. I love it next to my new vintage etching (especially after its recent upgrade).

 photo cIMG_3027copy.jpg

On the north wall, against the wall of windows, we put the ikat sofas and the marble coffee table on my old Persian runner.

I got these one-of-a-kind kilim pillows a few weeks ago when they were one of the Domino Deals (50% off baby!) and they're gorgeous. (psst...this Otomi pillow is also awesome)

And on the coffee table is this pretty little black hex planter from Dwell Studio. There might be no less than three succulents in every room in my house at this point.

 photo IMG_2990.jpg

This light blue-green chair is more comfortable than you might give it credit for since it's so small. It's adorable and the linen upholstery is well done. The color is pretty with the sofas too, huh?

 photo IMG_3187.jpg

I'm SO in love with this Blu Dot lamp. I bought the IKEA knock off a couple months ago, and let me tell you, that one is complete junk in comparison. This lamp is worth every penny, just for the shade alone! It's a gorgeous statement piece. Look at that pretty base.

 photo IMG_3193.jpg

I found that little knoll table for (get this) $24 here at an antique mall. I could hardly believe my luck.

 photo cIMG_3206.jpg

Just to the right of the sofas on the east wall is a bunch of new pretty stuff that I'm so excited to share with you! The perfect little cherry on top though is this Cy Twombly print that I've been wanting for years now. I LOVE the colors here. And it was nice that the print came framed.

 photo IMG_2930.jpg

This Arteriors vase is so crazy and unique, I keep moving it around the house because I love seeing it everywhere. Recognize the nubbins? Totally inspired one of my concrete planters.

 photo cIMG_2925.jpg

These little brass hand sculptures are new too and I love how they look against the black table. I think a person's hands are so beautiful (especially really old ones and brand new baby ones! Oh, my heart!), but I'm starting to realize that my hand sculpture collection is getting a little out of control at this point. Maybe.

 photo cIMG_3420.jpg

 photo IMG_3428.jpg

More the share later, when I get to the projects posts, but I just wanted to say that lilac and poppy red will forever be a favorite color combo.

 photo IMG_2903.jpg

Then just a little to the right, in the window bay, is my sunny desk nook. Those white S chairs were originally going sit at the malachite desk and one or both of the leopard chairs were going to sit at my desk, but I decided I liked the white S chairs in a pair at my desk instead. When people come over, we all sit together here, and the girls come up and sit with me if I need to work after they get home from school. They color and I type away. 

 photo IMG_3111.jpg

I painted the base of that Widdicomb table with chalkboard paint and I love the ultra-matte finish. And remember this little guy? My brass colored pencil holder has a star spot on my desk top now. I love it.


 photo IMG_3129.jpg

I picked up the gray wool office chair at a thrift store and it is so, so comfortable. It's cleaned up pretty well, but I think it's going to get a little more love sometime soon. The wooden arms and base need some work. But for now, it's just about my favorite place to sit and the arms hit the table at just the right spot. The perfect fit.

 photo IMG_3074.jpg

There are still a few more projects we're working on (some giant inspiration boards!!), but I'm so happy with the progress in here. It's bright and cheerful and it feels finished, but not overloaded. There's tons of floor space for spreading out our projects, but also places to sit and work when we're just doing computer work. I am so happy and grateful for this studio space. It is seriously saving my sanity. :)

So beautiful and bright, I love it! You are the master of mixing old and new, a skill I really admire. I'm with you about lilac and poppy red! I just redid my bathroom with that palette, which you can see here: http://redhousewest.com/2014/04/09/meras-house-the-downstairs-bathroom-gets-a-cheerful-update/
Thanks for another terrific post, Jenny!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! You mix colors so well.

Anyway, very well done. Loving the sofa area.

Are you kidding me with that ikea lighting hack??? Fabulous. It looks amazing there

pastsoon said...

Jenny ~ omg...the DOOR! I am in total L.O.V.E. with that deep rich blue lusciousness. omg...love. I mean, I get it, you are in total new excitement love with all the new pretties and I get it, I really do. Well, maybe...because I keep scrolling back to the total rich classicism of that AMAZING door. Tell me already how to do it....I need it already. I think I am willing to learn how to wield a saw for this!!! So happy you sound like yourself again ~!!! Congrats on all your new goodies and the many, many accomplishments. TJF

Karen @ a house full of sunshine said...

Absolutely love that vignette with the purple chair, red lamp and navy door! Such an unexpected colour combo that works so well. Pinning! Thanks for the inspiration!

Deborah said...

Your studio is amazing! The furniture, the art, the small details all blend perfectly . The element that made my heart stop however, you did not mention, the navy door! Was that a vintage find, a DIY project?

Susan - Uniquely Yours or Mine said...

I love how bright the room is!

Mary Meyer said...

Such an inspiring space today on a gloomy day over here in NY. Love everything you did! Enjoy it.

My Interior Life said...

It's all oh so good. And I know what you mean about vintage overload - I tend to fall into that trap too. It's all about the mix of old and new, low and high, and as usual, you've pulled it off to perfection. That poppy red and lilac combo is a fave too, and the Cy Twombly print pulls it all together. Oh, and the door! Okay, I'll quit rambling now.

And thanks for the giveaway! It's awesome. Fingers crossed!

J. Lewis said...

So bright and beautiful! I love the combination of colors, patterns, textures...it is spot on, and really lovely.

blissful chick said...

GORGEOUS!!! thanks for sharing, I covet it all

{Hi Sugarplum!} said...

It's just perfect, Jenny...per usual!!! Can't wait for all the tutorials!

Han @ Brooklyn DIY Designs said...

Inspirational space!
I would love to know more about the purple chair and that door too!
I will be redoing an apt soon with boring flat doors, that door is stirring up ideas in my head!

Betsy said...

LOVING the door! What a great detail to the room - do you mind sharing what color that blue is? Its awesome!

gardeniasandmint said...

Any chance we'll get an update on the library soon? I'm absolutely desperate to see what you've done there. :)
Thanks for all the eye candy and inspiration.

I love to check out your blog each day as you NEVER cease to amaze me with your creativity and talent.

Emily Knippa said...

I like the vintage pieces you incorporated. Could you show us a picture of the whole space as well?

colleen said...

I'll ad my request for a source on the window blinds whenever!!!
Beautiful space.

An other lovely room! The white floors are the perfect backdrop to all your fabulous finds. I have golden oak floors in my office that I have been wanting to change, this might just be the direction to go.

Amy Kitch said...

This is a fabulous makeover! I am so envious of all your great finds. Your keen eye keeps me coming back for more all the time.

Isabelle said...

Okay this post is awesome, but I (like many others, obvs) cannot stop thinking about that navy blue door. OMG I am drooling over here. Please please PLEASE do a post on how that door came to be. What you've done with that door is so ridiculously delicious that I actually have a hardcore saw in my amazon shopping cart right now. That door is EVERYTHING.

Gwen, The Makerista said...

Every piece is just so beautiful and they all work wonderfully together! I'm sure you're so happy to have a space to call your own, and it feels really fresh and inspiring. So happy for you!

Marilisa said...

Jenny your office is stunning! It reminds me of an artist - Britt Bass Turner - whose work I think you would really like: http://www.brittbass.com/painting-shop/

Marisa said...

Could you tell me the source for the grey/neon fabric on the bench in your studio? I'm in love with it!

My question is the same as the Green Bag Lady -- Where did you get that awesome light fixture hanging in your office nook? I love it! And everything else about your studio. Thanks for sharing!

Dagmara Postelle said...

This is a stunning space. I especially love the lilac chair and the Garnet Hand Sculptures. Thank you for sharing with us.

Amity D said...

Beautiful-- I LOVE your white floors? are they stained-- or painted? if stained do you mind sharing the process-- they don't have that funny pink cast that many white stained floors do.

Dina said...

Please please tell us where to find that door you used!
