Commercial Spaces

Picture this: An umbrella-studded beach on the Italian Riviera. An aerial image of boldly hued life preservers floating placidly in a pool. A pair of llamas donning pink balloons on the surreal salt flats of Bolivia. This is the work of fine-art photographer, Gray Malin. Even if you don’t know him by name, you’ve probably seen his wanderlust-inducing photography. His shots evoke a feeling of beautiful sunny days and unforgettable vacations. They’re an aesthetically pleasing distraction from the chaos of everyday life. To put it plainly, it’s the kind of

By now, it should come as no surprise that the state of our minds is directly related to the state of our spaces. Feeling scattered and stressed out? Well, your home is probably right there with you! Feeling like you’re on top of the world? Chances are your home is in tip-top shape too (nice job!). And if anyone knows this principle be true, it’s art therapist and yoga instructor Jessie De Lowe of the popular lifestyle blog, How You Glow. Jessie recently enlisted the expertise of Laurel & Wolf interior designer Ryen Conley to turn a blank

Pastel pink paint, an old-school peg board, and photos of fashion collections past fill the walls of online retailer JustFab’s new and improved brand room. Looking at the sophisticated space, you’d never guess that underneath all that glam used to live a giant, floor-to-ceiling white board, which had definitely seen better days. So, what was Laurel & Wolf Interior Designer Kimberly Winthrop’s biggest obstacle when designing the space? “The walls for sure! A lot of them were stone or brick, which was tough for the look we were going for. Also finding out one wall had a

Can’t make it through a Monday without a triple Venti coldbrew? Then it might be time to change up your office design. Studies show that happy spaces lead to happy employees, who in turn, are more productive AND inspired. Coworking space Industrious got the memo and enlisted Laurel & Wolf to transform their downtown LA offices. “We believe that people should be excited and proud to come to the place they work, and that that surge of good feelings will translate into their daily work,” Industrious National Launcher Leah Alexander

We feel so lucky to have been invited into the homes of some truly special people this year.  So as it draws to a close, we’re looking back on all of the amazing clients and spaces that made 2016 magical. From a country music star’s southern glamour den to a food blogger’s quirky bakeshop to a magazine editor’s new office, these are the makeovers that made our year! A Glam Office for Cosmo’s Editor-in-Chief Michele Promaulayko, the recently appointed editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine has style for days. We helped her bring the boldly

Becoming the editor-in-chief of a magazine known as “the bible for fun, fearless females” is a major undertaking, especially when said bible has over 17 million monthly readers. But the witty Michele Promaulayko, the recently appointed editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan (and the new editorial director of Seventeen), knows the recipe for success. “Cosmo women possess the ability to surprise and think outside the box,” Michele says. And for a magazine that’s been around since 1886, those are two very important skills to have. Over the years, Cosmo has stayed relevant by consistently reinventing

From boutique airlines to boutique hotels, to well, boutique-boutiques, there’s something about shopping small that burns a hole in our pockets and brings joy to our hearts. And while infinite options exist online, there’s no denying the personal experience that local, brick and mortar stores provide. Our favorite newcomer? Adelante. Redesigned after ten years in business by Laurel & Wolf’s own Claire Zinnecker, this boutique is girly girl done Austin-style. Decked out in soft, blush tones, marble print wallpaper, and rattan accents, the design reflects the edgy-feminine look of the clothes. So,

Anyone who’s ever had the pleasure of being a bridesmaid knows that standing by your best friend’s side usually comes with a hefty price tag. According to researchers, the average bridesmaid can expect to spend $1,695 between the bachelorette party, bridal shower, gifts, travel, and the often not-so-stylish dress. And if you have to throw down a cool couple hundred on a gown, you better hope that it’s something you could see yourself wearing on more than one occasion. This is where innovative dress rental service, Vow To Be Chic, comes to the rescue. Aside from being the online destination for bridesmaid dress rentals, the

Carly Kuhn grew up in an artistic family, but she never set out to become an artist. “That was always my brother’s world. Growing up, he could create these perfect photograph-like pieces.” But in moments of downtime during her gig as a TV producer at shows like Chelsea Lately, she started to doodle. Those doodles turned into an Instagram account, which caught the eye of Sarah Jessica Parker and Rachel Zoe, and led to work with brands from Dior to Prada and Capitol Records. “I suddenly realized that I don’t

How would you like to wake up every day feeling refreshed, revitalized, and ready to go to work? Studies show that a well-designed office has a direct positive impact on the health and productivity of employees. To put it plainly, stylish design equals happy workers, and BLND PR has definitely not missed the memo. The boutique public relations firm based out of Hermosa Beach, CA, has mastered the art of working hard and playing hard.
