The overall aesthetic of La Mistingeutte Studios is representative of the transition of Art Nouveau design into Art Deco, which gradually occured between approximately 1910 and 1920. And for this reason many authentic furniture and decorative peices from this time period are found throughout this workspace.
The hallway at LA Mistinguette is lined with frames displaying black and white photography. Each of these frames were either purchased second hand or reused from a previous location. Local thrift stores were frequented for about a week on the way to and from other errands in order to accumulate black frames in various sizes. By the end of the week, ones that were simply a good fit even if they weren’t black were purchased as well, and then painted black instead.
