Inside Red Paper Heart’s Homepolish-Designed Brooklyn Warehouse Space
In the posh hipster paradise of Williamsburg, Brooklyn resides the recently renovated warehouse space of Red Paper Heart. This art studio of designers and coders who work together to combine interactivity and animation needed a fresh space to inspire, so they called in Tina Apostolou of Homepolish. Check out their vibrant space:
Looking to keep the Brooklyn loft vibe, Apostolou kept the space open: “They are an art studio that creates animated, interactive installations and build the majority of these installations onsite so we wanted to create a space that reflected their creativity and showcased their work. For example, the big “pouf” on the wall in the break-out space, and Marvin (the 15’ teddy bear) are great conversation starters but also showcase their work to potential clients,” she says.
“Marvin also served as a great source of inspiration for the color palette of the space! We gave the whole space a fresh coat of white paint which made the already bright space even brighter and added pops of color which definitely reflects the fun, creative company they are,” says Apostolou.
One of the designer’s favorite pieces are the colorful (and useful!) dip-dyed stools from Serena and Lily. We love the layers of color that come with a sunny desert vibe.
“Most important was creating a conference area that is somewhat sectioned off from the rest of the space for client and internal meetings. We did this by building a partition wall with reclaimed wood and windows–it’s definitely the focal point of the space,” says Apostolou. We’re a little obsessed with the hanging bulb light installation and a dip-dyed picnic table that serves as the conference table.
Meetings can be boring, but that doesn’t mean your space has to be. Modern containers hold succulents and add a touch of greenery to the industrial space.
