Studio 125 x Unison Home Challenge

Interiors & Decor

It’s been so cool to see Studio 125 evolve. I knew when I got pregnant that I would need to have a place to separate work and life, but what I didn’t expect was building a space that would be a creative haven for not only myself, but for the creative community. It’s always a work in progress to finish a space, and the entryway was one location that needed some finishing touches. We wanted it to be a warm and inviting spot for guests and clients, a home away from home in a way. With a new season around the corner and a studio expansion underway, we were excited when Unison reached out about their #UnisonHomeChallenge. It was a good excuse to add those finishing touches to the entryway, and after hearing all the details of this project, we gladly accepted. With the Unison Home Challenge, each contestant was asked to redecorate a room with $1,000 worth of Unison product. With those marching orders established, we selected a few modern products we thought would compliment and heighten our current entryway design. We had so much fun with this redesign adventure and can’t wait to show you the results! Follow along with us as we take you on our #UnisonHomeChallenge.

I’ve shopped at Unison many times before, and what I’ve always loved about their offering is the modern home accessories that help bring finishing touches to a room. We picked up a decorative ladder to display magazines we’re loving, and the wire baskets helped organize clutter and keep items within reach.

One can never have enough baskets in their house– so it made sense that I’d bring them to the studio too. Most often used to store toys for both the baby and dog at my house, we use them for throws, magazines, and slippers (for those cold Minnesota days!). They also make a great home for plants!


Hub Ladder: We love this hub white ladder for the entryway, it’s useful for hanging magazines and acts as a fresh and airy accent to the space.

Black Band Waste Basket: We actually styled this waste basket as a plant holder, but this item can double as both! We love the natural-colored braided palm leaves paired with the classic black band at the bottom.

Copper Plant Hanger: The copper tones + leather strap on this plant-hanger work well with the rest of our entryway aesthetic and add a fun vibe.

Tosca White Basket: The cutest storage solution around – this white basket helps with organization and aids as the perfect little book holder.

Piatto Wall Clock: I love the copper metal outline around this concrete clock, which matches the other studio decor so well.

Other Unison products we’re loving that you can plan to see around W&D soon.
