A beachy vintage workspace…

By April 19, 20132 Comments

Exciting news, we are currently half way through our garage renovation to convert it into a photographic studio. Denis and I both work from home, and we are lucky we have enough space to have our own dedicated work areas! I currently work upstairs, and this wonderful space is going to be Denis’s pad. Lucky boy!

When we bought our home, it was always in the plan to convert the garage, so 2 years on it is exciting to see the transformation taking place. So while Denis is doing the hard stuff, I have been starting to design the interior. Trying to incorporate touches of a 1950s beach side theme to suit the studio location, working within a strict budget and utilising our existing furniture, second-hand and hard rubbish finds!

Whitby Linen Fabric

I’m totally in love with the vintage inspired beachy fabric from Mini Moderns. If I could I would marry this fabric! I have a couple of teak chairs to cover, so better get onto that soon!

I’m really happy with the ply sheets we sourced from Bunnings for the feature wall. They have such a lovely wood grain, and mounting them in large long panels helps to give the illusion of more space and length to the room. And check out the amazing photo backdrop Denis built. It’s a seamless white wall (no sharp corners) that will be used for product and fashion shots, and also video interviews.

Come back again soon to see the finished product. Click here to check out more progress photos >
