Growing up at the saltwater’s edge has shaped Minnette Baker and Brandy Hollingsworth’s style in repurposing found items and creating one-of-a-kind home accents.
Minnette and Brandy are true locals with family roots dating back to St. Augustine’s first settlers. They are inspired by the beauty of the nation’s oldest city that surrounds them daily. They strive to make creations with an organic and relaxed feel, while still being a little funky and unique.
The mother-daughter duo humbly started repurposing, revitalizing and refreshing furniture and other objects years ago as a means to redecorate on a shoestring budget. It has since turned into a life practice as well as a flourishing endeavor known as Saltwater's Edge Studio.
They see abandoned objects as the chance to transform remnants of the past into beautiful and functional statements for the home. Their mission is to bring a bit of Florida style to their clients’ lives through pieces that reflect simplicity, nature and innovation.
The ladies of Saltwater's Edge Studio say home is where their creativity begins. Therefore, they work out of their homes where their imaginations can thrive surrounded by things they love and inspire them. Brandy adds that their homes are the perfect reflection of what they create: function plus style.
They even show their items out of their homes. “By purchasing one of our furnishings, you are welcoming a piece of us into your home,” Brandy explains. “We believe you should be welcomed into our homes as well.”
