Handcrafted Lighting, Vertical Garden and an Eclectic Green Room The BrandStar studio renovation is really starting to shape up, thanks to some forward thinking companies and a great design team. With their start in aviation, Lumicor is known for creating one of a kind lighting that are cost effective and sustainable. The company has created gorgeous ceiling panels for the lobby and halls, and even provided cafe tables for the prep kitchen that really highlight the beauty of BrandStar’s new and improved studio. FSB made sure the studio is up to code with their germ-reducing door designs and attractive handles, and Garden on the Wall completed their finalizing touches on their various installations. The green couch that inspired designer Heidi Pettee has set the tone for much of the eclectic decor, and with the help of Ryan and Russ, her vision was able to come to life.

Heidi finds a green couch, chairs from a vintage store and some one-of-a-kind vinyl wallpaper, carrying out an eclectic design that meshes with the lobby’s decor — thanks to some great work from construction guys Ryan and Russ.
