Inspiration in the Studio

Simplified Sunday :: Gallery Walls

We all have an album full of photos or a collection of art sitting in the corner that is waiting to be displayed. There is no better time than now to get out your measuring tape and create a fabulous gallery wall to display what you love most. From classic family photos to a collection of travel adventures, we’ve seen it all and are here to help you create a wall that inspires you daily.

We’ve created a collection of our favorite frames and art to kickstart your new gallery wall, along with a few insights for when you start brainstorming. If you feel overwhelmed tackling this yourself, we’re here for you! Send an email to to schedule a virtual consultation. We will provide detailed drawings with measurements, help you pick the perfect photos and frame for your aesthetic to create a wall of memories you’re whole family will enjoy.

Do you find yourself suddenly working remotely?  Are you missing your co-workers?  Is your work environment uninspiring or completely non-existent?  Schedule a consultation with one of our designers to discuss the challenges of your space, create a more visually appealing background for video conferencing or tackle functional issues. We will follow up with design recommendations and solutions to help you create a more productive and inspiring home office.

Gallery Walls

Do you have an empty wall and lots of family photos? Let one of our designers help you create a fabulous gallery wall!  We’ll help you measure and select the photos.  We will create a layout with exact measurements, recommend the perfect frames, and help you create a wall of memories for your family to enjoy.

Recreation Rooms
Week of April 20
Tuesday + Thursday Afternoon

Everyone has a favorite space for the family to hang out.  Whether yours includes X-Box, Ping Pong, or now needs to accommodate home school activities, we can help. One of our designers can brainstorm solutions for space planning, storage dilemmas and multi-purpose activities. We will follow up with design recommendations, working with pieces you already have while incorporating budget friendly ways to self-implement a refreshed space for the whole family.

Design Dilemma Consultations
Week of April 27
Tuesday + Thursday Afternoon

What’s your design dilemma or one thing that you’ve been struggling with in your home? It’s probably become more of a sore spot now that you’ve been working from home for a couple of weeks. Time to stop biting your nails over it, and schedule a phone consultation with one of our designers to talk through the issue. We’ll gather all the details and question why it’s been a challenge, while providing some creative talking points and potential solutions to ease the burden.

We recognize that these are tough times and we want to be part of the solution. Our team has pulled together and committed one hour of volunteer service to our community for every consultation we schedule throughout the Coronavirus pandemic. We are continually amazed by the charitable work of our clients and it’s always been part of our mission to support those efforts. We look forward to now taking that commitment a step further.

When we all return to normal (and we will), the home projects will be complete, all while keeping the family focused on something creative and positive during an incredibly challenging time.

We are committed to making this world more beautiful.
