Studio Matsalla Boutique Before & After Transformation

I thought it would be fun to share the transformation I made to my design studio/retail space here Carlsbad, California. I wanted to create a refined and modern California-inspired space with a Bohemian vibe. Since I'm a hop from the beach and situated close to the downtown Carlsbad area, I wanted a bright and inspiring space that would continue to inspire me every day - and reflect the laid back vibe of the surrounding beach town.

When I rented this space, it came along with a green and yellow paint combination, varying in shade from wall to wall. The black rubber baseboards weren't doing anyone any good so those also had to take a hike.

I originally considered polishing the concrete floor but the crack in the middle was too severe and I later decided on a warmer vibe and overall feel. I decided to go with a laminate floor that would be scratch resistant and weather any foot traffic for years to come.

I love this space. I'll take you through a before & after of the design library and bathroom I remodeled in the back area as well soon! Most of the merchandise pictured is for sale under the "SHOP" section of my website. If it's not there and you're interested, just shoot us an e-mail!
