When it came time for Karen Roberts to build her dream photography studio in her home, she knew exactly what she wanted – white walls, white flooring and white furniture. You may think an all white room is boring, but Karen’s studio proves that a white room can be fun, elegant and eye-catching.
I just kept dreaming. I would go to sleep at night thinking about that room. I wanted it to be an all white palace.
As a photographer, it was important for her to create a space that was versatile for the wide range of portrait sessions she shoots. She looked to other rooms and photography studios to help her craft a vision and bring her dream room to life.
I’m such a visual person – I go on Pinterest and type in something. I thought. .It would be beautiful to have an all white room so I went to Pinterest and typed that in. There is amazing stuff and inspiration just from seeing someone else’s space. See what it is you do like about the spaces you find, is it the color? Or the set up? You can compile different ideas and put it all together to make it what you want it to be.
Once Karen got some inspiration in her mind, she had to do some searching. She decided she wanted laminate flooring and the shag carpet in the room wouldn’t be suitable.
I thought, it would be cool if I could find a white laminate! I went into my usual flooring store, but they didn’t have any white laminate. So then I just googled “white flooring.” BestLaminate came up, and I saw the flooring and thought Oh my God! That’s perfect. It has the contrast and texture in it that I was looking for.
The white flooring she stumbled upon is Classen Premium Fresco 25964 – a shabby-chic flooring that gives an incredible unique look. This floor has been discontinued, however, our new Bestlaminate shabby-Chic vinyl flooring is a waterproof replica!
She wanted the room to be “Pinterest worthy” and have a really cool and modern touch to it. The white flooring would be perfect for her photo shoots as the light not only bounces off the ceiling, but off of the flooring as well.
White on white is just gorgeous – choosing this flooring was easy.
After Karen found her perfect flooring, it was time for furniture. She originally planned to decorate with an all crystal chandelier. She changed her mind when she fell in love with an all white corral chandelier. She went back to Pinterest to find more inspiration and found a clothing rack idea. She placed a vintage styled clothing rack with baby and children’s clothing on it for a simple and elegant touch to top off the room. The added furniture piece would not only be handy and accessible, but make for a great prop in photos as well.
It’s angelic – I just love this space. I couldn’t be happier with it.
Since installment, Karen has photographed many different shoots on her white flooring and is always coming up with a creative idea and design. Her white studio concept can easily be changed for different seasons and occasions. She is using her stunning room to better her artistic work and really show her unique and innovative style. Her white room creation is a reflection of the inspiring artist she is. Get inspired by her scene ideas here.
