Yes that's right! We not only outfitted the Almost 30 nation with custom apparel, but also their stunning office space. It turned out so magical we decided each collab needed a dedicated blog post to itself. Last year I launched my latest side-hustle, interior design under the name Dazey Den. This was one of my very first big client projects and I am so excited to share.
For those who may not have heard of the powerhouses that are Lindsey and Krista of Almost 30 Podcast, here's the scoop! These gals have become media moguls as their popular podcast has over 12 million downloads. They have interviewed top doers and thinkers of our generation such as Rachel Cargle, Marie Forleo, and Sophia Amoruso. Krista and Lindsey touch on important topics like entrepreneurship, self-development, wellness, culture, and spirituality.
It was a really cool project where we wanted to make an office space that was both playful but also elevated, just like their Podcast. Mixing in bold color similar to their branding with grounding pieces that also reflect the meaning behind their message. It’s a space they want to be proud to bring their team and powerful/well known interviewees into (Covid-permitting) and feel comfortable and inspired.
We mixed in meaningful and personal pieces, like my original paintings made just for the space (including an abstract portrait of both of the gals on the mic which is hung in the recording studio space), with both new and old furniture finds.
What made the project also unique was that it had to be designed as both their HQ and Lindsey’s personal home. Outside of being the Almost 30 office, Lindsey has a separate bedroom area and uses the living room and kitchen space as her own. I know this well as my boyfriend and I, who both work for Dazey LA and Dazey Den, work and live from home too. We’ve learned tips and tricks over the years on how to work well from home and keep working/living spaces useable for both. I had to take into account it being multi-purpose when sourcing the right furniture and considering layout. They really picked an awesome commercial/residential location and multi-use building that lent itself to that as well. Being flexible and getting creative is SO helpful when making a live/work space.
