Minnesota's North Shore. 
Each day: rest. explore. dine. repeat. Always the perfect get-away. 

"Nature teaches us simplicity and contentment, because in its presence we realize we need very little to be happy."

coffee house event center

It was such a pleasure to design the coffee house event center for Mugshots Coffee Company. Working with the owner and general manager to capture the dream and vision was a great experience every step of the way.


This is where it started, our initial meeting at the site of an old scrapbooking store...


I'm always so excited for the AFTER photos!  Here are the final professional photos of the space. A clean, light, modern spot designed for Millennials in mind. 
Along with ebony wood tables and aluminum chairs, there are refurbished upholstered booths, a dual-sided fireplace with bean bag chairs, tablet-arm lounge chairs, a coffee bar to chat with the baristas, and a high top counter to work on laptops next to the open garage door feature.

In addition to the coffee house, the event center hosts several live performances and bands as well as a conference room available for rent by the public. Located at 10518 France Ave. South, Bloomington, MN. Support local.

Even as an adult, I love back-to-school time and the change of seasons. You can feel it, you can see it.
A fresh start.

Simple pleasures.
Sipping blueberry mojitos 
Celebrating a milestone with great friends

Weekend doughnuts and lattes
...And lots of sunshine

mad men and minneapolis

I'll admit, I started watching Mad Men after reading an article with photos of the award-winninng set design. The authenticity of the period in history is what intrigued me, and the story line has me hooked into the final season!

Described as a time capsule from the world of 1960's advertising in New York, the mid-century furniture takes center stage. The styles and details of the set design are so cool to see transform throughout the drama.

Mad Men Article (via Interior Design Magazine):

At the beginning of my interior design career I worked on various ad agencies in Minneapolis. I love designing spaces with purpose and intention.  Adversing agencies need to reflect their company brand, attract potential clients, and spark the creativity of employees.  Sienna Lynn Studio is currently working with one of the top advertising agencies here in Minneapolis.  With the final episode of Mad Men approaching, this real Minneapolis workspace design begins...much more exciting!
