I announced on Instagram this week a delicious piece of news…I’m getting a studio space! Squeals! Hoorahs! Me, along with 9 other creatives, are opening up Hinterland Studio, a permanent space for us to work, shoot, hold events and classes here in Utah Valley. We want to provided a place for creative things to happen in the community. We are beyond thrilled to give a quick sneak peek as it’s been in the works for months and it’s finally coming to fruition. We’ll be showing some before pictures of the space, but for now, suffice it to say that it needs A LOT OF work. You see, it’s an old farmer’s co-op and former factory and it’s been vacant for awhile. Think inches of dust, holes in the wooden planks, etc. I’ll be giving updates about the space as we make progress on it but we’re hoping to have it ready soonish.

AND, if you’re a home improvement or a home decor company and would like to partner on bringing it to life, please contact me! It has so much potential and we’d love to work with you! We’re looking for furniture, decor, paint, the usual home improvement stuff that magical makes things look amazing. Email me at thehousethatlarsbuilt@gmail.com. Let’s make this happen!
