With the start of the new year, it’s always a good reminder to get our acts together - a clean slate as we get a little more organized, eat a little bit better, or set some goals that we want to crush to make this new year our best one yet. So, with all of that energy in the air, we thought it would be a good time to share one of our favorite projects, which you may have seen featured last year on Rue Magazine. Our Boho- Chic Podcast Studio is the home to a podcast you should definitely be listening to if you’re looking to do some self-improvement - or even just need a bright spot to add to your commute or weekly routine.
When author, cover model and 3x Fitness World Champion Lori Harder reached out for help creating an earthy, Mykonos-inspired podcast studio, we were thrilled with the opportunity.
At first site visit, we saw the potential for this to be our latest favorite project. The space where Harder hosts the popular Earn Your Happy podcast was filled with tons of natural light and good energy and we couldn’t wait to create a comfortable, professional space where our client and her (podcast) guests could relax and enjoy themselves while getting down to business.
To achieve this, we used a neutral palette and relied heavily on texture, plants and statement pieces to make the space come alive. Incorporating mostly vintage and artisanal items into the room created a layered boho-chic look and really drove home the idea of California comfort. From your first step into the space this vision is brought to life through the Mexican handmade amate paper display that while neutral, packs a big punch when it comes to style. We chose to leave these pieces unframed and slightly floating for an organic vibe with a really cool shadow effect.
A live-edge desk and vintage hemp kilim rug define the recording area where we used two existing accent chairs, each styled with linen tie dye pillows. The woven pendant light in rustic brown adds contrast and a little drama above as we kept the desk mostly clear for this efficient workspace. Behind the desk, we kept it clean and green, with a Madagascar Dragon tree potted in a woven basket, potted staghorn ferns in twine crocheted hanging baskets and a small accent table for water and snacks. And finally, on the wall, a simple strand of ceramic unglazed moon chimes.
And, because every podcast room needs an area to "podcast and chill", we made the small nook a space just for that!
A hooded rattan chair with vintage-textile pillows and a throw blanket is flanked by a round jute rug and gigantic wool floor cushions for a cozy corner spot. The tall ceilings gave us the perfect opportunity to add a giant beaded globe light (previously purchased by Harder) to draw the eye up and add a “wow” to the room. We finished it off with a few more indoor plants and Spanish moss for a space that feels light, airy and totally inspiring.
