There are so many roles an Interior Designer has to play during the design process, and not everyone has a team that can fulfill them all.
As someone who enjoyed doing full scale interior design for a portion of my career, I learned very early on that it was the finishing details of the project I was always the most interested in – styling vignettes, filling up bookcases with unique objects, and layering bed linens.
Often times, smaller teams or solo designers don’t have the bandwidth for this process at the end of a project, or it’s simply not in their wheelhouse. That’s where we come in. We work with designers to complete their creative vision for a home or space so they are able to move on to their next big project, while leaving the client feeling at home in their new – and finished – surroundings.
With over a decade of experience in the editorial world, we also offer on-set styling services to designers who are looking to create imagery that will enhance their portfolio and can be pitched out to media. This partnership also gains you access to the items in our shop, our prop closet and our photographer list, should you need one.
When partnering with Interior Designers on their projects, we let them determine how we can best work together to support the clients needs.
Some designers prefer a more collaborative partnership, and will bring us on to a project while they are still actively involved, working side by side on design decisions while we take the lead on finishing details. Other times, there is a clean hand off between the design process and the styling process, and we take over the client project on your behalf, while keeping you in the loop as needed.
For on-set styling, we like to do a walk through of the space being photographed so that we can take note of measurements, lighting, and angles, helping you build a shot list if needed. We determine what items need sourcing, and where we may want to inject life with plants, flowers or personal accessories. Then, we arrive the day-of with plenty of options for styling the space
