A multidisciplinary company mastering floral design, event design and styling, Munster Rose started as a side business out of Jackie Reisenauer’s home in Minneapolis, MN. Jackie and her mother, Barb, quickly outgrew Jackie’s home and also needed help with the high demand of their services. So nine months ago, Munster Rose moved into this St. Paul, MN studio and added designers Jessica Sequeira and Kelsey Knight to the mix. The ladies at Munster Rose had high standards for their workspace, and this studio has proven to meet all of their needs.
Jackie and Barb’s young company needed a studio with ample work space, a private area to meet with clients away from the mess of floral arranging, a place to store props, and a place to keep flowers chilled. They have had to make some adjustments to the studio to allow it to function well for them, but it is becoming everything they could ever want. “We’re design-minded people in a design-minded industry. We wanted to create a space we, and our clients, found inspiring. [Our goal was] a studio that felt like a home to great ideas,” Jackie says. “We slowly decked the space out with pieces we really, truly love. Whether that’s custom artwork or what have you. In retrospect, it made more sense to do it this way – accumulate pieces over time as we began to understand how we move and flow within the space.” The result is a studio that isn’t just functional, but also an inspiring place to both work and design.
The giant windows, open floor plan and high ceilings are the architectural elements that make this studio a showstopper. The pieces that the Munster Rose team has added have brought even more personality into the space. They have everything they need with a walk-in floral cooler, work space, consulting space and even a nursery so Jackie’s son, River, can be near while his mom works. All in all, the minimal yet lush design fits their brand well — a combination sure to garner and accommodate more floral-loving clients. –Lauren
