Shell Rummel Studio Tour

My studio is my haven. It features big windows, gorgeous light and allows me the freedom to run my business for the Shell Rummel brand from my home. My design team and I create home decor textiles, rugs, pillows, bedding & bath collections as well as products for stationery, fine art and gift markets. I am also a painter and this personal creative space is where I do my best to honor the Muse. 

 

It’s a comfortable, feel good space with high ceilings and the most beautiful warm light that streams in all day long. Most days, my two talented long time designers work side by side with me.  yes, it’s compact, but I think that allows us to work closely on projects and to brainstorm with ease. Good energy yields great results!

My perch:) I came upon this huge 7 foot long wood table nearly 25 years ago and it makes the perfect studio table, although admittedly, often it is hidden under piles of art supplies, fabric swatches and art works in progress. When in bloom, I am surrounded by 6 stunning orchids, my favorite flowering plants as well as beloved seashells and stones from my favorite oceans.

A glimpse of one of my organic watercolor paintings in progress. I like to experiment with different mediums, from inks to oils but the unpredictable fluidity of watercolors makes them my favorite to paint with.

The linen covered mood board behind my desk constantly changes as images and ideas come to mind.  It is a visual storyboard that breathes life to those ever important creative sparks.

This year, our studio space began to literally burst at the seams!  I design for home decor markets and receive sample products (comforter sets, duvets, towels, fabric by the yard, pillows, bone china…) as collections launch and come to market.  We are clearly running out of room for it all! I’ll be planning a Spring Sample Sale to make room for new products.

My best companion, my rescue pup Baci, is always underfoot in the studio. She’s deaf so touch and texture are her comfort. You can always find her napping on our soft wool rug samples. She is, without a doubt, my favorite subject to photograph!
