This was an incredibly fun project for us! Marggie, the owner of Bennyani Photography, hired us to reimagine her newly leased office space.
Her vision was to have a clean, home-like interior where her clients – mostly families with young children – would feel comfortable. We created a new floor plan, hired a contractor to build-out the space and selected all of the finishes based on how Marggie would be using her new space.
Understanding a client's needs and how their business functions is crucial to creating a beautiful yet functional space.
One of the unique services Marggie offers is "smash cake" photography. For those of you not familiar with this service, it entails giving a sweet little one-year-old a birthday cake they can eat or play with...however their little heart desires.
For that very reason, we
chose a luxury vinyl tile (LVT) in one shooting area and carpet in the other shooting area. The best part is that the LVT flooring allows for easy cleanup!
The new tenant space also offers a farmhouse look and feel with a soft, neutral palette of grays and whites.
We personalized the space with a cozy fireplace, clear glass, decorative pendant lighting, fresh white shiplap on the walls and reception desk and new carrara marble laminate countertops – all of which became a great backdrop for Marggie’s photography which is clearly the "star" of the space.
Here's what Marggie had to say about her experience with The Designery:
"Working with the ladies at The Designery made designing my studio so much easier. They listened to exactly what I was envisioning and then provided me with numerous samples. They provided "sample sets" that included flooring/paint/carpet, etc. that went well together so I could envision the look together. They gave great advice from everything from floor durability to shades of paint and how they would work with natural lighting. Dyonne and Jill are super knowledgeable in their trade. Combine that with their passion and amazing creativity and you will end up with a beautiful space!"
