Studio tour: David Beahm Design

Name: David Beahm
Location: 529 West 20th St.  Suite 11W, NYC
Company: David Beahm Design

What do you do? Custom Event Styling: social, corporate, not-for-profit and destinations

What is your aesthetic? We try desperately to remember for whom we are designing, so I guess we hope that our aesthetic is that of our client – with some occasional gentle judicious guidance, of course…

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? I like it because it is all over the place, just like our clients.  I have decorated it, hopefully,  so that there is an element that every person who comes in can find something visually that makes them comfortable.  There are clean, hard lines, no color areas, colorful areas, modern touches and oriental rugs to soften.

Favorite part of your studio? Number one – we have wide open space!   But I do love the way the sunlight plays on Vivian’s (our studio cat) fur through the glass bricks.  We didn’t have full sun in our last studio.

Where do you go for inspiration? We live in New York – I walk down the street and always see something new and wonderful every time.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? Wide open communication.

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? If I could find a way to plug my imagination into an imaging device so that clients could see the way I envision their events, our sales would be through the roof.  But when it comes to gadgets, bring on the newest and the best – they make me very happy.

Anything else we should know? I have the great fortune of being blessed with a garden on my rooftop in Hell’s Kitchen.   I have trees, about twenty five different herbs, decorative plants and, this year, nine different varieties of heirloom tomatoes that I grow in Earth Boxes.   Until we get a formal link, you can visit them on my New York City Tomato Cam.    View it at Click “Single” to bring up the cam.

Brooklyn Bride is growing!

Brooklyn Bride is going to be getting a face-lift soon, and it seems like the right time to bring on some new blood and get some new columns cooking over here!

I’m currently looking for 2-3 assistant editors to help with the day to day aspects of running Brooklyn Bride.

The ideal candidate:

* Has a great writing style
* Has a similar aesthetic to Brooklyn Bride – modern, fresh, quirky, colorful
* WordPress, InDesign + Photoshop experience preferred
* Can do 1-2 posts a week
* Specifically looking for people to help contribute with DIY, Real Weddings, engagement shoots, studio tours, product roundups, event coverage, etc.

Editorial positions are unpaid on a trial basis for the first 3 months, after which will be compensated.

To apply, please send a sample post along with an inspiration board of images that visually convey your aesthetic, and preferred topics to cover via email with the subject heading “editor position”.  Unfortunately I will not be able to respond to each applicant personally, but thank you in advance for your interest in joining the team!!

I’m also looking for an intern to help me out with submissions, running the FB page, managing emails, helping with laying out posts, etc.  You should have a love of modern design and weddings as a whole.  If you’re interested, please email me with subject heading “intern” and your resume with why you think working at Brooklyn Bride would be a good fit.  This position is only a couple of hours a week and you do not have to live in Brooklyn, but living in the tri-state area might be helpful so you can attend local events.  This position is unpaid.
