Studio Tour: Smock

Name: Amy Graham Stigler
Location: Wisconsin
Company: Smock

What is your aesthetic? Classic with a modern edge. With a good amount of vintage quirkiness thrown in.

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? Its a true mix – modern, vintage, classic, playful, formal, organic, stylized…which is what I hope to convey in the Smock collection. I just can’t commit to one look…it must be the art historian in me.

Favorite part of your studio? My showroom…because its filled with great windows and light. And Smock products. And there is a tiny balcony, which I adore.

Where do you go for inspiration? My “library”  which is a walk-in closet at my studio filled with books and miscellaneous ephemera. I also frequent flea markets and thrift stores (in order to replenish my library) and any and all museums. And my morning runs always leave me feeling inspired. Especially if I am in the woods.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? My Mac and my ultra fine black sharpies.

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? A full time assistant would be nice.

MSW Spring sneak peek

cherry_blossoms

OK, so I’m not totally a pink person, but I do make an exception for the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.  When I got my issue of the latest Martha Stewart Weddings (arriving on stands Monday!), I caught my breath a little after opening this spread, with florals by Matthew Robbins.  Check out the full gallery here, and if you ever have a chance, go to BBG in April when the blossoms are fully bloomed and sit under the trees, its amazing!  [secret tip: if you shake the tree a little, it will be like its raining pink petals!]
