Get The Look/ Studio Marcus Hay


Photography: Jonny Valiant, Interior Design & Styling: Studio Marcus Hay


For the Dining Room/ Office Space, Studio Marcus Hay wanted to design a space for the client that served 2 purposes. One to entertain guests for dinner and also a workspace where meetings and work on laptops could be done around the robust industrial worktable. Painted in a calm gray/ blue and featuring art inspired by New York and Fashion, The space is habited by a Fashion talent agency by day and it's founder as a dining room at night. Mixed with an eclectic mixture of both functional mid century and more industrial pieces, this space serves dual purposes very well.

We continue our series of Color & Trend Forecasting section at Studio Marcus Hay Finding inspiration in color combinations all around us, we use Instagram to capture the above images. In the beginning of Winter we find color is the best medicine for the winter blues as discovered at ABC Carpet & Homes showroom in NYC. Also at Le Bon Marche in Paris we turn towards Japanese with the great combo presented in store with their range of Japanese Hasami Porcelain. Nothing beats the inspiration of color in nature, beautiful purple scallions on set at a recent Williams Sonoma Cooks shoot really catch the eye.

Working with a number of wonderful Photographers including Christina Schmidhofer, Peden + Munk, Seth Smoot and Chris Court and also the amazing Prop Stylist Philippa Brathwaite we have been carving out the holidays in lots of spectacular ways.
