Beachy Vintage Bathroom

This is one of 3 bathrooms that I am renovating over the next 3 months. In fact this one should be complete by this weekend. I was inspired by a crisp white palette with beachy tile undertones. This bath is the largest in the house, so I guess you could call it the master. Although, it is pretty small, I thought adding a classic pedestal sink and lightening up the space could make it feel larger.

The home which is over 100 years old has classic influences mixed with modern updates. The windows have an all wood trim and I am thinking of doing a cafe curtain here to minimize the warmth of the brown…still not ready to go for painting out the trim completely white.

I hope it will come out really beautifully. I will be sure to post photos early next week when the renovation is complete.

Maybe some sea green color or pattern somewhere? What do you think?

Shop Photo Friday

I am feeling exuberant about my product photo shoot last weekend. Although, I usually prefer to work with photographers, sometimes it’s necessary to get creative with styling and work up a little photo shoot on your own spur of the moment. Here are the results of my playing around in my studio last weekend.

I’ve taken a bit of good advice from a friend to hone in on my PInk Pianos style story. It’s been fun to think about what I love about design. Global accents like this pillows are one example. 

I often focus on the details…so knobs and hardware are small accents that feel important in designing a piece of furniture.

Another aspect of having a design studio that I love is creating products that I would want to own. These Belgian Linen Gallery style frames are something I plan to create more of as I develop my decor line. 

Last but not last, I’m excited to share with you this vintage modern accent chair. Finding the great vintage shapes and pairing them with modern fabric is the genuinely exciting for me.

I hope you have found my photos and thoughts on shop ownership interesting. Enough about me, I would love to hear from some of you about your Journey with product development. How do you find inspiration?..and how have you developed your brand and style? If you would like to be considered for a Friday feature please contact me. I’d love to bring new designers to the attention and benefit of us all!
