Working Designer Wednesday: Cool Studio Spaces

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, take a look at the client meeting space at Stephanie Grace…love it!

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!
