Real Home Series – Creative Comfort
What most girls will call a dream is the home and workspace of an entrepreneur, social media – Girl Boss Kasia Stanicich.
We’ve been watching Kasias journey for a few years as she’s gone from strength to strength so when we saw she had given her studio a facelift we asked if we could have a look! On the top floor of her family home is a dedicated space for Kas to create content and have clients over where she creates magic as a Makeup Artist. Her style is evident throughout the space, it’s both calming and glam – the perfect space for a client to feel pampered.
Tell us about yourself
Well, I’m Kas.. ha. I’m a full-time freelancer that dabbles in a bit of everything. I started with Makeup Artistry and have slowly built my blog and online space as well as offering content creation to local and international brands.
What is this space used for?
On the trend of ‘a bit of everything’ this space is a studio for my makeup clients as well as a home office for the weekdays. It’s pretty much where I spend 90% of my time, and it means I have a little creative hub right outside my bedroom.
What was your vision for the space?
I just wanted to be able to do anything. I wanted to constantly be able to change and update colours/details based on what I’m loving, so I kept most of the fixtures white or natural shades. Right now, you’ll see I’m into a bit of gold- lol. I also wanted it to be a warm and welcoming space, so made sure to add soft furnishings and lots of seating! I can literally sit ANYWHERE.
Where do you pull design ideas from?
To be honest, a lot of the fixtures were designed just based of what was in the budget- I’m lucky my Dad is a builder by trade and my brother is a joinery apprentice so the main feature (a la huge makeup storage) was designed and built by them to fit what I could afford. Once we found that was going to be all white I just started searching high and low on Pinterest for decorative aspects and a lot of those included some design books – which are proudly displayed around the room. You’ll see major inspiration for this room in the pages of those.
What’s your favourite feature or item?
While I’d love to say my makeup desk, it’s definitely all the gold. Look I’m not perfect and they aren’t all matching shades but they make everything look pretty and luxe and add a little glam.
Your go-to brands for this space?
Oh PAPIER HQ. I couldn’t thank Gabby enough for all the work she’s done to help me decorate with her prints. The walls were so plain until she worked her magic and she helped me pair pieces I already owned with some newbies that reflected my branding, style and the room itself. And of course the gold frames from Spotlight! So good right?!
I’ve got a HUGE space to fill next to the mirror that my dad and I DIY’ed (and I want to be totally millennial and get a neon sign) and then just adding personal touches to what’s already here. Ideally, I’d love to repaint the walls, they’ve got a green tinge to them right now which makes client photos almost impossible sometimes. Plus I’d love to replace the blinds with something less… black. They were perfect for the original use of this space (my brother’s gaming room) but I’m all light and bright now! Then I’ve just got a lot of ‘bulking’ to do with accessories- including more coffee table books. I need a whole library of things.
