There is one whole area of the studio that I use for photo shoots. I placed diamond wall panels from Wall Dimensions on the¬†north side of that area. I wanted something that would give dimension to the white walls since the south side of that area is boring and has no furniture or decor. With a little styling of old and new pieces, it became a stylish wall.
We’ve lived in our Bungalow for 7 months now and I’m finally settling in to my basement studio. We painted the entire room white a few months. And what a difference it made! I chose Sherwin Williams Extra White on the walls. It immediately created the ambiance that I need for this space.
I have 3 zones in my office. A sitting zone, working zone and photo shoot zone. I wanted a comfortable sitting area that was modern and stylish. This sofa and chair fit perfectly.

I Instagrammed my studio this week and got some inquiries about my desk. I’ve had this desk for a few years now and I’m just not getting tired of it. My father in law built the sawhorse legs and my husband built the top. We used Surface Skin from Blik to cover the desk top. Though it doesn’t offer storage. it offers all of the tabletop space that I need! Go here for¬†a somewhat easy sawhorse desk DIY. If you’re not in the place to build one,¬†Ikea has these leg options¬†and tabletop options. Below are more sawhorse desks to feast your eyes on.
I am so thrilled to be featuring Cori Magee’s apartment on Simply Grove. Cori Magee is an amazing graphic designer who has an eye for everything cool and stylish. Her scandinavian design inspired space feels so comfortable yet so put together. Cori’s space is also relatable and doesn’t feel stuffy nor too proper. I asked Cori a few questions. Enjoy below.
What inspires you when decorating your space?
I find so much design inspiration on-line, both digital-magazines and design blogs. I also enjoy a handful of printed mags, like Dwell, Living Etc., El Mueble, Elle Decoration UK and Habitania) Also, museums, restaurants, the sidewalk‚Ä¶.inspiration is everywhere.
How would you describe your interior aesthetic?
Not an easy question to answer. I pull my ideas from so many places and then I decide what works for me and the way I live. Ultimately I think I enjoy a modern aesthetic mixed with old and new, warm wood finishes mixed with a black and white palette… Modern Merger? Can that be a thing? Sort of like personal labels, I think interiors should just be what they want to be, typically it won’t just be one singular style, but a combination. And no matter which styles are combined, it should always represent your personality.
