Mojave Desert Inspo at The Green Building

This lovely inspiration came from the newly established design company, Starling on Bond.  Quin Johnson, lead designer, wanted to elicit the natural feel of the Mojave Desert, while still appealing to a Brooklyn aesthetic.  She created a handmade teepee as the lounge area, with some gorgeous throw rugs from Patina rentals.  The best part, is she incorporated this gorgeous copper fire pit, to enhance the feel of the natural elements that we sometimes feel like we miss out on here in the city.  If you can't go to the desert, bring the desert to you!  She loved the idea of having pops of turquoise, to give a little bit of a Southwest vibe, and I love how she wrapped raw pieces of the stone in leather, as another way to give that hand crafted and natural feel.  The Green Building itself has been working on some great new elements, and transformed their garden area into a modern and clean respite.  The wooden walls, and desert grass make for a gorgeous backdrop, and really ties the shoot together!
