Amazing Spaces Studio Part 3

I was approached by Julia from Amazing spaces to work on her new studio office space in Wynberg, Cape Town. Over the last week I have shown you the before and my proposal for the space and below you can see the after photographs.

I am so pleased with how this project evolved…

Amazing Spaces Studio Part 2

Amazing Spaces is a Cape Town based business dedicated to marketing locations to the Film, Stills, Events and Accommodation industries. Over the last two months I have been working on the re-design of their new studio space. Quite the honour considering the BEAUTIFUL spaces they deal with on a daily basis.

Last week I did a before post, see the before photos here.

The overall look and feel we wanted to achieve was a clean, light space. We did this with a natural colour palate. I relish in the use of pattern and texture, this adds depth to the space and while we went with more of a rustic finish throughout we complimented this with furniture items with contemporary lines.  

Here is my proposal for the space -

We loved the metro tiles and exposed jars and because the space had little to no storage space we embraced the open shelf look.

Julia also had her heart set on a barn door… I say no more!

Amazing Spaces Studio Part 1

I have been very busy with this project over the last two months and finally I am very excited to share it with you… To start, here are a few before photos. Next week I will show you my proposal for the space and then <drum roll please> the after photos.

I was approached by Julia from Amazing spaces to work on her new studio office space in Wynberg, Cape Town.

Who are Amazing Spaces?

“Amazing Spaces is dedicated to marketing locations to the Film, Stills, Events and Accommodation industries. Since our inception in 1999, it has been our driving passion to create a diverse portfolio of truly outstanding locations incorporating a diverse set of architectural styles, situations, elements and features. In 2004 we expanded our portfolio to include top-class accommodation featuring many of Southern Africa’s and Mallorca’s premier private establishments.” – Amazing Spaces

This loft space has so much potential! Lots of wide open space and beautiful “bones”… Julia also had such a clear vision of what she wanted to achieve in this space, that made it such a pleasure to work with her. See my client board on Pinterest here .

The most challenging part of this job was re-doing the electrical layout, it always is with such old buildings… but all it really needed was great spacial planning, dry walling and a splash of white paint!

Here is the studio space before-

A dip in the archives- Project De’Lord

So its a rainy Sunday afternoon and I have been in bed ALL day, James is at work, Sullivan is snug next to me and its ME time… I have been busy with admin, freelance work and watching movies. Its been a great day, one that’s good for the soul! While mindlessly scrolling pinterest, as one does, I came across a sweet little quote that read-

” A Sunday well spent brings a week of content…”

 

So while doing some work, I all of a sudden missed drawing… now a days everything is done on the computer! I missed my varsity days where we were forced to embrace our raw talent… So I thought I would dip into the archives and show you a project I completed in 2010. House De’Lord, was a fun project, a loft redesign with a nautical theme.
