Studio Tour: Designer Hannah Collins


We are going behind the scenes at the office studio of Hannah Collins, the local restaurant designer whose firm is making a major style impact on the Bay Area restaurant scene. Her firm is behind the stunning décor of Barzotto, Flores, Phlox Commons, and the sophisticated-meets-welcoming women-led champagne bar, The Riddler.  Aside from her commercial work eliciting a convivial vibe for restaurant patrons, her own office studio similarly creates a feeling that makes us all want to pull up a chair and stay awhile. Plus, now we wonder…why don’t all office conference rooms have a shiny, sweet bar cart? Come inside and tour this incredible space, learn the motives behind the calming aesthetic, and see the items she can’t work without!

From Hannah: Our studio is where we call home Monday through Friday so we really wanted to make a space that was bright, calming and fantastic to work in! A neutral palette sets the background for soft wood touches and brass accessories mixed in throughout the space. We have lots of plants and fresh flowers to brighten our day and to add a real living element to the office. Our shelves are styled with our favorite books that keep us inspired and a twinkling of vintage or found objects that remind us of why we love what we do!

Style tips for your office:  Mix things you love with practical elements. Storage is key for keeping things de-cluttered. We use brass trays on each desk to contain personal items and current paperwork that needs to be addressed and acrylic trays to contain all our clients materials. Adding vintage elements, collected items and plants can really make the space feel personal and inviting. I also find an inspiration wall really important. It reminds me why I love what I do and keeps me motivated to keep moving towards my goals and manifest how I want the firm to grow.
