MAKE IT / 43

today we will be making a napping tent with bramble workshop! make a comfortable corner in your home or office to take a break from your day. take a book in there and just chill out. (she’s also making these custom, if you want to buy one from her etsy shop)

we put ours in the new studio. here’s how to make the tent…

what you’ll need:

• 1/8 inch rope Two wreath forms (from Michaels): 18” and 12”
• 74 unstained wood beads: 46 small and 28 large
• One 2” wood cabone ring
ScotchBlue™™ Painter’s Tape
• white paint
• brush
• silver spray paint
• wood stain in oak
• Four 12 foot long pieces of white netting
3M™ Safety Products disposable respirator mask used when spray painting

how to make it:

• Stain beads with wood stain and allow to dry.

• Using ScotchBlue™™ Painter’s Tape, mask off 1/3-1/2 of each bead with tape at random angles. Spray paint beads silver, dry, and remove tape.

• Paint wreath forms white and allow to dry

• Cut 3 lengths of rope: two 11 foot and one 8 foot. Set one 11 foot rope aside.

• Mark 11 foot rope at 5 ½ feet and 8 foot rope at 2 ½ feet. This will be the center and where the cabone ring is attached to hang the canopy.

• Measure and mark 9 ½ inches on either side initial marks. (there will be 3 marks per rope.)

• Wrap tape around ends of rope to prevent fraying and make threading beads easier. Use needle-nose pliers to pull rope through if necessary.

• Thread 5 beads through each end so that they’re just above the second set of marks

• Thread rope through 12” wreath form and tie a knot at mark

• Measure 5” from knot and mark

• Thread rope through 18” wreath form and knot at mark (you will only use four of the holes in each wreath form)

• Thread rope through 9 beads (alternating large and small) to hang at end of rope and knot.

• The 8 foot rope will have one end that is shorter- this hangs above the opening of the canopy. The other three ropes should be the same length and have 9 beads on each end.

• Attach 9 beads (alternating large and small) to either end of the second piece of 11 foot rope and spread beads apart at random intervals. This is a decorative element that hangs on either side of the canopy opening

• Attach cabone ring to top of canopy frame using a lark’s head knot.

• Drape the four pieces of fabric over top of canopy structure with about 18” of fabric hanging down in the center of canopy

• We hung a plant from the center for the finishing touch. (planter from urban outfitters)

to style the tent, we used pillows from:
west elm (here and here)
anthropologie (here, here and here)
moroccan wedding blanket from maven collection
triangle pillow by caroline z hurley
baskets from connected goods

i love how the finished product came out. it really adds warmth and comfort to our studio!

STUDIO WALLS

my studio is coming together slowly but surely. i wanted to take my time with the decorating process, searching for pieces i really loved and that felt like me. i knew that i would be spending a significant amount of time in the space and wanted it to be inspiring, functional and relaxing at the same time. i am keeping the “sitting area” really simple because we often move around the furniture for shoots, but i did think a piece of art over the couch would be nice.

shop items seen above: pink couch by cb2, polkadot rug from ikea, white pendant lights from barn light electric, wooden side table from lulu and georgia, black and white stool from finn style, fuzzy pillows from west elm, triangle pillow from caroline hurley.

i found a couple of pieces of art from artfully walls to use around the office (especially love the painted pebbles above by garima dhawan).

the one above is by eva magill-oliver. love those natural frames too!

i debated between doing a single piece or a gallery wall above the couch (i really like both!!) but ultimately, i felt like the gallery wall would be harder to remove if we needed that wall for a shoot. sometimes functionality wins, right? i’m really happy with the britt turner piece i chose. her work has been a favorite of mine for a while. artfully walls has a cool feature on their site where you can try the art on your actual wall which helps in making these decisions for your home.

which is your preference over the couch? single piece or gallery wall?

shop this gallery wall: hora, woman, round and round, and navy geo.
