At Call Me Faith Design Studio, interior designer Faith Blakeney likes to keep it green. She does this by using sustainable materials where she can, and plants to fill an environment with life and love. All of the desks are either custom made with reclaimed wood, or beautiful vintage pieces found at flea markets and the likes. The plants add a fresh, colorful design element, while oxygenating the air.
Her client, Deborah Burch, runs an ultra-hip, 360 degree Commerical Print, Video and Editorial Production Company production company called Song Productions. Her client list includes the likes of Bose, Sony, Motorola, GQ, Italian Vogue, and UK Glamour.
In terms of the design, the key was to respect the industrial bones of the space while bringing the outdoors in; to create an environment which is as livable (and breathable!) as it is functional. Deborah’s team often spend long hours in the space, so it is essential that the loft serves as a workspace as well as a refuge.
Faith did not want to use precious floor space for plants, as this production studio at times holds as many as 15 employees and countless boxes full of production material. Living Wall Planters provided them with the perfect way to bring nature into the space without taking up square footage!
Faith's vision for the space was 2-fold. The main office space (downstairs) brings nature inside, and with the large windows of the loft, almost gives the sense of being in a greenhouse. On the mezzanine they created the executive lounge. An intimate, inviting place where the CEO can meet with important clients. It is designed more like a living room, with a fantastic green view, thanks to their vertical garden.
