Meet Beck from Studio Beck.

By November 15, 2021No Comments

Studio Beck is a boutique Interior Design & Styling Studio based on the Gold Coast in Queensland, founded by Beck Smith.

As creative as she is methodical, Beck is driven by a desire to create dreamy & captivating spaces that are as functional as they are beautiful, ultimately bringing a better quality of life to those who inhabit them.

Studio Beck covers the full range of Interior Design services and Interior Styling & Photography on the Gold Coast and beyond, with Concept Creation, Custom Joinery Design and 3D Visual Renders available virtually Australia-wide.

“Making life beautiful through dreamy & captivating spaces…”

We had the pleasure of collaborating with Beck on the design & interiors of our space. Together we made: The Ocean Club.

Did you want to know a little more about Beck & the story behind Studio Beck?

Great, we asked a few questions for you.
Check out her answers below.

1. Tell us about how Studio Beck came about?
Circumstances due to Covid temporarily uprooted our life on the Gold Coast and took us to WA for most of the 2020 year. I started the Studio Beck Instagram account as a creative outlet while I was away from my normal life, sharing inspiration and things I love. That then led to my first project; designing Frais Studios on the Sunshine Coast. The completion of my first solo project cemented the direction I was heading with Studio Beck and has sent me on this crazy trajectory of incredible design projects, such as The Ocean Club! 
2. Who/What/Where inspires you the most?
Designer’s who are always inspiring me are Tamsin Johnson, Arent & Pyke, Flack Studio, Alexander & Co, Athena Calderone (Eye Swoon), Kelly Wearstler, Eny Lee Parker, Sarah Sherman Samuel… just to mention a few. I’m currently living vicariously through these accounts to seek inspiration from locations afar: @palmheightsgc @belovedmary @seeladanse @viancasoleil. I’m always reading articles on Yellowtrace, Est Living & The Local Project. Mostly, I can not wait to travel once again to experience first hand the inspiration that comes from other cultures, architecture, interiors, and landscapes.
3. What would be your dream project?
I have a great appreciation for Mid Century Modern architecture so an absolute dream of mine would to be renovate an original MCM home. It would be such an honour to work with architecture that is still so prevalent half a century later! Then to spend time filling the home with pieces that tell a story, sourced from all over the globe.
4. What do you love most about being located on the Gold Coast and where are some of your favourite places to wine/dine & be inspired?
I love the energy that exists throughout the creative community on the Gold Coast. Everyone is so supportive of one another which is so important as I think of design as a constant collaboration. I feel lucky to have worked with other creatives who are humble and driven purely by their passion for creating. 
Our favourite restaurants for a treat night are Labart, Lupo and Etsu. To wind down on weekends, you’ll find me having an ocean dip at Kirra with friends and then popping into Tupe Aloha for a sneaky coco marg and chilli wings! 
5. What advice would you give to someone going out on their own in business?
My advise is just to start. No one starting a business has a complete grasp on what they’re doing or how to do it, but if you just give it a go then you never know where it could led you!
