Studio Number 19


It's no secret that I spend a lot of time on Pinterest (possibly too much) but it's not always the pinning that chews up minutes. I just can't resist clicking through from pins that take my fancy, and that often leads to great discoveries and more internet browsing. Inevitably there will be more pinning, but sometimes after I've shared it with you on the blog first. 

Today's case in point is Studio No 19, founded by interior and commercial stylist Mia Widlake. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Mia is happiest when she's designing or making things, and in addition to her interior work, produces a range of clay, cloth and soon to be launched lighting products. 

It was two separate pins from Pinterest that put me on the path to discovering Studio Number 19, and I'm so glad I did. The first that caught my attention was a collaboration with Ginger and Fig, a new eatery based in Brooklyn, Pretoria. 

Well suited to the artisanal eatery's homemade, organic style food, the crisp white interior has lots of greenery and an industrial edge. I love the feature lighting, square wall tiles and herringbone flooring.

The bathroom wall display features plates from the Studio Number 19 Plates Collection. 

The other pin that grabbed me led to some incredible interior styling work by Studio Number 19, for Anatomy Design, a design studio in Johannesburg selling a beautiful collection of furniture and homewares. The stunning rugs are by Paco

For more examples of their work, the full range of products and blog, take a look at the Studio Number 19 website.

  1. It's so easy to get side tracked on Pinterest, but, you're right, I've found some of my favourite interiors this way. That chair in the last pic is totally yummy, and I love the Ginger & Fig design. x

  2. I love looking at these clean interiors - it's a welcome change from the clutter that surrounds my studio.

    1. Thanks Jackie - glad you like them. Happy weekend! x

  3. Oh Pinterest, an endless source of inspiration, I could spend all day pinning if I had the time. I've never seen herringbone floor like that have you? It's really interesting, almost like a tile perhaps? It looks striking beside the subway tiles. And that copper (?) chair is divine! Mx

  4. Thanks for posting our work, its exciting to see it up here! Kate (KA.AD and Studio Number 19)
