Christine Lee

Hey absolutely everyone! Right now the written content team is using in excess of the blog! Our names are Jenna and Ramona, and between the two of us we create and develop most of the material you see on Juniper Print Shop & Jenny’s weblog. We imagined it would be enjoyable to give you a driving the scenes appear at how we style new Juniper prints in our studio place! We usually type involving 3-10 prints a 7 days, and those people photographs are used for the print shop web-site, social media, and style written content for Jenny’s weblog. This week we are styling Vale by Laurel-Dawn Latshaw. She had 4 new prints hit the print shop this 7 days!! you can store her selection below.

In advance of moving to our current place of work room, we experienced a dazzling and wonderful studio (check out out a tour of our aged room in this article) that was perfect for pictures, and we grew truly used to styling most of our Juniper Print Store content in-household. Our existing place has much more of a warehouse experience, which has made that a challenge! Last 12 months we have been in a position to have a few studio sets designed in the back of a person of our office environment spaces to give the search and sense of a true home. The sets are entire with shifting partitions, fake windows, changeable wall moldings and two diverse kinds of flooring, which indicates we can develop thoroughly unique rooms each individual time we model!


The to start with move is determining what kind of room we want to build. We typically rotate between residing rooms, bedrooms, or entry spaces. We knew we needed this print to be outsized, so we determined on residing room so we could dangle it around a couch. Our studio room has numerous wall molding options we can swap in and out to give each styled place a absolutely exceptional appear, so we opted for a common wainscoting right here.


Following we make a decision on our shade plan. One particular of our preferred elements of styling on a set is finding to use exciting, bold paint colours. While most persons are ordinarily drawn to a neutral palette for dwelling interiors, our studio space is the fantastic position to experiment with punchier hues. We depend seriously on our Benjamin Moore and Farrow & Ball paint decks. (Even if you are not a designer, a admirer deck can be super useful to assist visualize colors in your area!) We ordinarily choose our wall color centered on the tones of the print we are styling. We like to pull a lesser utilized tone in the artwork, or a complimentary shade. For this individual print, we chose a muted green by Benjamin Moore identified as Desert Twilight, that performed really properly the muddy blue-inexperienced tones the artist utilized.

Immediately after settling on our paint, we pick out a frame color. When styling smaller sized sized prints, we generally stick with ready-made frames in neutral shades like white, black, gold or wood. For this space we are likely with an outsized print, which usually means working with the Ikea Bjorksta frame. The Bjorksta frame only arrives in black or silver, so we love to spray paint it to get a new glimpse! Past year we wrote a really useful article about our “Tried & True” spray paint colours and designed these minimal sample body pieces that we use to pick out a frame shade all the time. We knew we wished to pair a gold or brass end with this print, so we introduced out a couple favorites. We finished up settling on Rustoleum’s Satin Bronze.

When we finalize our color plan, we come to a decision on what household furniture we want to use in the area. Due to the fact we went with a daring wall shade, we resolved to continue to keep the sofa neutral. We genuinely cherished the way this white slip covered couch popped against the environmentally friendly.


Following up is choosing a rug. Rugs can be difficult, so we normally like to have something in brain early on in the structure procedure. We were not certain if we wanted to use a bolder, striped alternative or anything classic motivated. We like Loloi rugs, so we pulled in three that we a short while ago extra to our prop assortment. (If you are in the sector we remarkably propose the one particular on the suitable. It is SO unbelievably gentle!)

At the time we narrowed down our choices, we introduced them into the space to see how they seemed. When the three vintage-motivated rugs looked lovely with the wall colour, they all felt a minor far too pink for the print, so we decided on the stripe.

Following up is incorporating little home furniture. Styling for a picture can be a lot different than styling for an genuine residing room. In your house you would generally make possibilities centered on how you stay and operate inside the place. For a photo, we are inclined to focus additional on scale, condition and visual balance. We made a decision on a wood dresser as an oversized facet table. Acquiring the further peak on this side of the frame gave the desk lamp a lot more visual equilibrium with the floor lamp and curtains on the other side. We layered in an supplemental wood side desk to generate some dimension, and then attempted a couple various coffee tables, right before in the long run selecting on two smaller ottomans. This aids the foreground of the frame to truly feel lighter and keeps your eye relocating through the area.

The subsequent stage (and in some cases the toughest) is picking pillows. Pillows can swiftly transform the sense of a area, so it really is generally good to have a shade palette and design and style in head. We’ve collected so many pillows over the a long time. We constantly uncover excellent picks at Concentrate on and other huge box stores, but our absolute favourite spot to source pillows is on Etsy!

Vintage Kilim pillows are a staple about below, and we love pairing them with modern prints. We generally suggest applying a high top quality down insert, it will make such a huge big difference in how your pillows glance and come to feel! If you need assistance with your pillow assortment, verify out our “Recipe For The Ideal Pillow Combination” post! Don’t in excess of-tension about obtaining it far too “perfect”. If you pick out colours and styles that you love, it will really feel best to you!

After some trial and mistake, we eventually narrowed down our options to just a several. Since we commonly want the artwork to be the focus of our images, we check out to decide on pillows that participate in off the colours of the print without having overpowering the house.

A person of the last actions in the styling approach is adding in a layer of decor. This can involve baskets, vases, trays… seriously everything you love! We have a Big assortment of styling parts right here in our studio. We really like to combine shades, components, and often add in parts that are a small little bit funky or odd.

We are usually on the hunt for new decorative items. We obtain a whole lot of our smaller decor at vintage stores and thrift shops. We also love to purchase new objects to exam out right before introducing them to the Shop Our Finds portion of the site! Some decor merchandise get applied a couple of situations ahead of getting donated or passed on to close friends, family or coworkers, though other folks have been in our rotation for Many years! Do you place any items from previous Juniper assignments?!

The remaining step is including greenery and bouquets. Even in a studio space, clean florals are a need to!!

As extended as you know what you might be looking for, you can source lovely flowers from just about any where! Some of our favorites are peonies, alstroemeria, ranunculus, chamomile, dahlias, mums, and we generally like seeded eucalyptus for some greenery!
