10 Second Studio Tour: Rebecca Atwood

Ever since we met Rebecca Atwood at our Easter Egg Decorating Party last year, we’ve been absolutely hooked on the textile designer’s signature style of beautiful patterns and rich color. Last week, Rebecca was kind enough to let us into her home studio for a quick tour. Although the space is quite small, just a tiny room in her Brooklyn brownstone apartment, Rebecca has done wonders with it— packing it with beautiful objects, inspiring images, incredible color, and texture. I’ve always admired Rebecca’s ability to craft stunning yet wonderfully simple pattern and getting a sneak peek into her process was a real treat! Check out the studio tour above and some of the outtakes from our visit below! (And don’t forget to follow us on Instagram for more studio tour updates!) —Max

    I love the brief whirlwind studio tour idea! But I might rather a bit of a video pan of teh space, and perhaps duration of a minute…or three…but maybe my attention span is longer than average? Nah. Not that ;) Great new ideas, though!

  4. Rebecca M says:

    I like Sarah H’s idea for a video pan and to expand the time…just a little more, please?

      hi guys!

      these videos were created as a column for instagram, hence the short time. we run extra photos on the site so you can see more pictures at a slower pace. but the vast majority of readers aren’t reading the site in the same way, so we’re creating new forms of content as a way to connect with readers where they are. our longer form videos, which we’ve done in the past, just aren’t as popular with readers, so we’re testing out these short videos, which have been doing much better so far.
