Collinsville Studio

By: Jessica Robinson

Our new studio is fabulous!  I'm loving every little detail.  I love having such a clean and creative design studio to work in.  The Collinsville area inspires me so much!  There's an amazing energy in this building and the surrounding area.  So many phenomenal artists and designers have made Collinsville their home.  Every special touch we add to the new studio makes it feel more like home.  (I seriously just might move in here!)
I've shopped my little heart out at Used Furniture of Canton.  OMG! that's all I can say.  Each and every time I go in there looking for something I walk away more than satisfied and beyond thrilled. (both with the quality of the furniture and definitely the price)  I've also hit up Hadsell's a few times for vintage blue color Mason jars and some depression glass pieces. 

Our new, in-house graphic designer is Nicole Schmidt.  She's amazing and completely talented.  Nicole is such a fabulous asset to our company and I am always blown away by what she creates!  She recently designed the most incredible new logo for us (which is about to be printed into fancy letterpress business cards).  Why not stand out!?  She also designed our invite for our private cocktail party celebrating our new design studio.  I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next!! 
This weekend, be inspired by Mother Nature and maybe pick up a copy of Well Wed magazine.  It's wonderful and should be glanced at constantly and cherished!  We are assembling a spectacular team of wedding industry leaders to do a wonderful styled shoot for their magazine.  While snooping around, we found a huge space in the factory that would work perfect for a wedding or special event.  So, we're going to host a fabulous shoot to inspire everyone!  Just wait to see what we come up with.  The ideas are just brewing right now.  But I can tell you they are Fabulous!!
