before and after

before & after: studio renovation from johnny vintage

by Kate Pruitt

Some people can juggle multiple projects at once and execute them all fabulously. I admire this skill and am insanely jealous of such people. I can’t seem to handle more than one venture at a time without becoming utterly overwhelmed and morphing into a tornado of unpleasantness and anxiety that my boyfriend lovingly nicknamed “Stressball.” It would probably benefit me to take lessons in multitasking from Jonnie Anderson, the incredibly talented woman behind this studio makeover and myriad other successes. Her amazing etsy shops Johnny Vintage and The Spiced Pear carry some of the best vintage out there, plus she holds an MFA in photography and has a few design blogs in the works. Johnny’s eye for vintage is exceptional, as is this clean, bright and airy studio that her family has created out of an old hatchery. Originally converted by her mother into a farm shop for rebuilding cars (her little brothers’ work), the whole family now uses the space for multiple projects. Jonnie’s prop styling pops against the all-white backdrop and the combination of the bright studio setting and her crisp photography results in truly irresistible vignettes. I want to snatch everything up in one swoop! Thanks for sharing, Jonnie! — Kate
