Blend Studios Office

Posted by 12th August 2010

Blend Studios is a “creative collective” in Milwaukee, Wisconsin specializing in 2D, 3D, and sound media. I suspect they should also consider interior design gigs — their offices are unique and very personalized.

The office that has the most steampunk vibe is Nick’s — largely due to the mix of industrial salvage and antique wood used by his brother Jordan to make the desk and shelving.

Design notes:

  • fabric curtains to soften the industrial edges
  • damask wallpapers
  • dark colors — especially grey
  • Edison bulbs
  • leather furniture
  • soft throws

(One of the challenges I’m finding to using a lot of harder materials like metal and stone is keeping it soft enough to be comfortable. Office space perhaps doesn’t have to be as comfortable as a home, but I like how they use fabric drapes, upholstered furniture, throws, and wallpapers to soften the feel.)
