Studio Updates

The Wonder Jam 4

I thought I’d share a few updates on the studio! We’ve had it for almost two months and has become my favorite place to be! Not only is it a place that can bring about peace + quiet, it’s also a place where people feel comfortable and can collaborate.

Our friend Danielle came over to create one of her amazing food typography creations while we worked. When it was time to be photographed, I popped over and snapped what I needed.

Our other friend Tim has been using his talents to give us the most amazing custom addition! We are seriously so lucky. He just installed this shelf/standing desk up at the front. Look at that copper detailing! He also built the table (in the top photo). We found an artist on Etsy to make us that custom metal diamond.

Overall it’s been really amazing. We’ve stayed within our budget and it’s makes such a difference. I don’t sit in the studio feeling guilty for throwing non-existent money at unnecessary decor. My tips for someone investing in a workspace?

  • Set a budget and stick to it! It’ll never REALLY feel “finished” so take it slow.
  • Go to IKEA for lamps, rugs + frames (so cheap!)
  • Barter + trade for services or items.
  • Invite people in. Even if it’s feels out of the way! Ours doesn’t get a lot of foot traffic but we are intentional about hosting or meetings.



A weekly email where I share things that made me stop and consider: opinions, other articles on the internet, trying new experiences, and products you might like to buy.

    Looking gooooood! How I wish I could have a nice, big space like you guys. The rental fees around this area here is just ridiculous… So I’m hoping to move to the suburbs soon (mostly to have a descent work area).

      It is REALLY nice to be out of the house although I miss my pup at home :) We bring him over there sometimes but deep down I know he just sleeps and I’m the only one with separation issues hahaha.

    This is SO exciting. A physical way to realize how far you both have come!

    […] Unfortunately, you can’t really take all the time in the world to make the space something special. You have to prioritize your list of wants and “must-haves.” For every day you take off to improve the space, it’s a day you aren’t working. We moved in and took about 4 days (and a bit over $1,000) to get it set up (biggest expenses were the floors + paint). About a month later, we had a working and neutral studio. […]
