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!
