What is your aesthetic?modern with a touch of traditional, clean lines, bright, fresh

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? I’m very fun and outgoing (hence the orange walls). When designing our space, I laid out every single detail in my head then on paper before actually looking for each piece. The same with our clients, we like to get to know you and find out your personalities and story. Thus making each event personal and unique, down to the fine little details.

Favorite part of your studio? My office, it over looks the entire downtown Ypsilanti.

Where do you go for inspiration? Fashion, Home, Architect and of course wedding magazines/articles.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? My Mac, can’t live without nor do business:)

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? Yes, I would love to one day have a store front. The view is lovely up here but the interaction with people coming in and out everyday; would be awesome!!

Studio tour: Always a Bridesmaid

Name: Xochitl Gonzalez

Location: Downtown Manhattan

Company: Always a Bridesmaid

What is your aesthetic? City Chic

How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? It’s colorful, warm and a bit eclectic, which I think is definitely what we try and bring to our clients.

Favorite part of your studio? I love that we took the time to line our shelves with the toile print. It makes me happy on a daily basis.  More practically, I love that we have the space to meet with our clients, show sample vases and still have some of our team able to do some work.

Where do you go for inspiration? Fabric stores and linen shops really do a lot to get my juices flowing. But, a trip to the Met museum is a sure-fire way to come up with some ideas. There is just so much there.

What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without? If they stopped manufacturing safety pins, we’d be out of business.   That, and a scanner!

Is there anything you’d upgrade to? The only thing we’d change is our location. We’re on a VERY busy street and it is a comedy routine when we are loading up gift bags or getting deliveries.

Anything else we should know? For some bizarre reason, despite having a decent amount of space, Mayra (my business partner) and I keep our desks about 1 foot apart. It’s strange.

Ah, how I dream for an office of my own just like Alisons!
Name: Alison Hotchkiss & Kelsey Sheofsky
Location: San Francisco, CA
Our Aesthetic: Clean, modern shapes, personalized details, bright colors
How we convey our aesthetic through our studio style: We keep our studio as organized as possible so we don’t get totally overwhelmed. We keep inspiration boards by our desks to add interesting images and ideas we come up with during the week. It’s also a good way for us to work through design ideas for our clients.
Favorite part of our studio: Big open windows that look out to our lovely neighborhood, bumpin sound system, loads of storage for all our design books, inspiring photographs on the walls.
Where we go for inspiration: Art and photo shows, flea market, traveling to different countries, dining out, architecture and design books, having lots of friends that are designers and photographers
What tool do we use that we can’t live without: When we are traveling…iphone, flash drive, travel printer, gossip mags and travel and leisure. When we are in the studio…our 4,000 vendor database and 1000 photo venue database, fabric swatches, french press and peets coffee
Anything we’d like to upgrade to: laser printer, espresso maker, someone to cook lunch for us everyday?
