Studio tour: Poppies & Posies part 2

Name: Sierra Yaun & Juliet Totten
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Company: Poppies & Posies

What do you do? We’re floral and event designers.  We design every aspect of events from the flowers to the menus.  We really do it all!

What is your aesthetic? Our aesthetic is contemporary rustic. We love sourcing vintage and antique elements to use along side more modern elements in our designs.

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? Our studio is an eclectic mix of old and new. We found some amazing salvaged wood to hang as shelving throughout the space. It now houses a plethora of antique items such as bottles, apothecary jars, cameras, and tins. We added a newly upholstered couch, that Juliet designed the fabric for, and some beautiful linen curtains to drape our windows.

Favorite part of your studio? Our favorite part of our studio is probably our huge work table. We found it at a local flea market and are in love with all of its dings and bruises; they’re a real reminder that it’s had a whole history before coming to settle in our space.  Now we’re adding a few marks of our own.

Where do you go for inspiration? We find inspiration in the funniest things. Sometimes we’ll be strolling through the farmers market and create a whole design based off of some amazing piece of fruit we’ve picked up. We’re both from New England and love to also get out of the city to regroup and feel inspired.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? Cutting shears/ipod speakers.

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? A larger studio with tons of closet space to hold all of our props and vases.

Anything else we should know? We’ve recently become obsessed with Bahn Mi Vietnamese sandwiches!  We think they are the perfect nosh for a long work day.

Studio tour: Inspired Goodness

Name: Kimberly Canale
Location: Brooklyn, New York (Park Slope)
Company: Inspired Goodness

What is your aesthetic?

I favor mixing vintage elements with modern materials and techniques for a chic and timeless look. Like calligraphy on bright colored envelopes or using a scraps of vintage ribbon to wrap a party favor, it’s about taking things that are beautifully made and finding new and interesting ways to use them – a modern interpretation of time-honored materials.

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? Since my studio is located in my home, much of the look of it comes from what I’m personally drawn to. We have vignettes of vintage treasures – industrial influences and family heirlooms are mixed with flea market finds. Inspired Goodness tends to have those same sensibilities but with a feminine twist; think subdued colors and delicate accents like flowers, ephemera and vintage jewelry.

Favorite part of your studio? My favorite area of my studio is the large window to the left of my desk. Seated, I can view the back garden of the apartments below and brick walls covered in decades of ivy. Birds and squirrels are constantly stopping on the fire escape to say hello. It reminds me what I love most – being outdoors in the city.

Where do you go for inspiration? After living in New York for almost 15 years, I’ve amassed a list of shops that not only inspire me but have become essential resources for fueling my creativity. Anthropologie is my go-to source for cute clothes and home accents. ABC Carpet + Home has amazing gifts and is full of hidden gems around every corner. For materials and supplies, you can usually find me at MJ TrimTinsel Trading or Paper Presentation. And Etsy is my weakness for anything vintage.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? My computer is my essential tool – along with my calculator, a sharp xacto knife and self-healing cutting mat, I could pretty much work from anywhere. I could not function without mountains of blank paper and black Pentel EnerGel Pens.

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? I enjoy having clients over to my space – but sometimes I dream about having a small storefront so that I could interact more with the local neighborhood. I’d love the opportunity to create beautiful window displays for the people walking by. On the inside, the focus would be on providing an inviting environment to meet and entertain clients.

Anything else we should know? My first love is graphic design and along with the event design services, we also offer clients a full range of custom paper goods. From save the dates to invitations and day-of details, the stationery gives us a unique outlet to bring the story of each client to life in a more focused and creative medium.
