    The work of Tessa Neustadt stands out for its washed-out color palette and dreamy landscapes. Working out of a cozy, minimalist studio right in the heart of Los Angeles, we chat with Tessa about her process and what it was like growing up in a creative family. Photos by Angi Welsch While perusing our online print shop, the work of Tessa Neustadt stands out for its washed-out color palette and dreamy landscapes. Working out of a cozy, minimalist studio right in the heart of Los Angeles, Tessa’s aesthetic is clean but comfortable, mixing bright whites with patterned rugs and worn-in pieces of furniture (she has a set of four rolling wicker chairs that she scored for a couple hundred dollars on eBay; “I feel like it had to be a mistake,” she says), giving the place a homey, eclectic feel. The wide windows lining the length of the studio bathe the studio in light, making the space especially photogenic and perfect for Instagram-worthy shots, including the occasional “fancy selfie.” Tessa’s clean design aesthetic carries over into her photography as well. With a focus on prints that feature washed out beaches, soft landscapes, and pastel colors, Tessa’s body of work is bright and comfortable, much like the studio space she has carved out for herself. 'My mom was my biggest inspiration growing up, hands down,' Tessa tells us. 'She was always finding creative outlets for herself and, in turn, me. She also loved decorating the house, and styling for the different seasons. We would sit in her bed flipping through House Beautiful, tearing out the pages we liked for inspiration and for the shop she dreamed about owning one day. Fast forward to today and here I am shooting interiors and designing, while my mom owns an antique store and flower shop!' With a variety of her oversized prints and paintings on the wall, Tessa's studio is also a perfect example of how to decorate with her prints, and showcases her design skills, as well as how simple it can be to mix contemporary art pieces with vintage décor. (Several of her prints are framed and lean against the wall, a look very reminiscent of Carrie Bradshaw’s early '00s NYC apartment and the kind of choice that cements Tessa’s “cool girl, we-definitely-want-to-be-you” vibes.) Whether Tessa’s at home in Los Angeles or off traveling the world (she recently shot a campaign in Mexico – color us jealous), Tessa likes to keep an eye out for her next shot. Her Instagram account is a colorful look into her everyday life, and a place where Tessa shows off everything from her daily food (ranging from artisan pizza to homemade waffles) to sneak peeks of the many beautifully designed studios that she gets to visit and photograph for work. These studio visits, in turn, keep her motivated. 'It’s so easy to come up with excuses as to why we’re not achieving something we want: I’m too busy, I don’t have the resources, I don’t know what I want, etc.,' she says. 'My biggest piece of advice is DO IT. You don’t need to have some huge game plan; just figure out a first step and start there. Get that ball rolling. An object that’s in motion stays in motion right?!' When she’s not busy photographing, Tessa spends her time traveling and hanging out with her Jack Russell Terrier, Olive. In the next year, Tessa is looking forward to an upcoming trip to Europe, something she’s been anticipating for a while now. “My childhood best friend is getting married in the South of France, but I’m hoping to hop around a bit and see more of Italy and maybe even Croatia,” she says. 'Being outside is [always inspirational] for me. Going to the beach, going on a hike - it instantly rejuvenates me.' To see more from Tessa, follow her on Instagram Shop Tessa's work
