before & after: poppies and posies’ studio

As someone who has always dreamed of having a big, open, loft-like studio space with wood floors, industrial lamps, big windows and brick walls, I think I may die of envy if I stare too long at this amazing makeover of the Poppies & Posies studio, an NYC-based floral and event-design firm.

When Sierra, the co-founder of Poppies & Posies, sent these to me, I honestly had to block out some time to ogle every image. The space is so achingly gorgeous, and I love that every corner has been given love and attention. The furniture itself is rustic and spare, which allows for the lush colors of the flowers, vases and vintage knick-knacks to really stand out. Everywhere you turn there is a beautifully composed vignette or a mix of pattern and texture, which I’m sure provide countless moments of joy and inspiration to the workday.

There are too many lovely details to count, but luckily I’ve included them all after the jump. Get ready for some serious visual candy. Thanks for sharing, Sierra! — Kate

    i have also always dreamed of a big open loft studio as my condo – one with the bed in the middle the room. not sure that type of thing works unless you live by yourself though…

  4. I love it all, but can’t look away from the tea wagon! Perfect.

  5. Gorgeous redesign, ladies! It looks clean and tidy but not clinical; there’s a sense of almost rustic-ness in there somehow. Bravo, in any case!

    I am like 4 years behind on this post, but how did you get your hankies to stay hanging without drooping at all? I have a hat box full of them and I want to display them but I cannot figure out the best method.
