It’s time to make a statement with your business.
You don’t sell what everyone else is selling, so why should your business look like just another store? How would it feel to inspire your customers the moment they walked through the door?
My name is Sheena Birt, and I’m the owner of Color Story Studio. We work with businesses, primarily retailers, to transform their in-person guest experience through visual displays, custom lighting, and art installations.
In our Prime Now culture, it’s not easy to get a person out of their house to visit a place in person. Businesses that work with Color Story Studio use their unique look as brand assets in their marketing and social media strategies. Suddenly your customers will be taking selfies and doing the marketing for you!
Color Story Studio is passionate about setting your business apart from the rest. When you’re ready to break away, we can’t wait to work with you!

For the past few months, I've been creating something really special... ________ My husband, Ezra, and I are happy to announce that we're expecting our first child (a baby girl 💖) in early January!!! And today is special because I'm officially 20 weeks along. Half way! I can hardly believe it! 🤯 ________ Back in June, we went to Florida with family and had a mini photo session done. And seriously, what's a better photoshoot prop than baby's first ultrasound photo? In these photos I was only 12 weeks along (hence the lack of a bump), but you can see our excitement. ________ I've waited longer than most people to announce this on social because, honestly, it's way more fun to tell people in person! And also, I've been able to physically hide a bump until just recently. I'm finally starting to look as pregnant as I feel. ________ And speaking of how I'm feeling, it hasn't been the easiest pregnancy. Up until about 17 weeks I had my fair share of not just "morning", but all-day sickness.🤢 Thankfully, my health and my energy has turned a corner and I've been feeling like my old self again. ________ Now that we're in the downhill stretch, I definitely want to connect with any fellow biz owners with young kids about all the things! Child care options, work/life balance, maternity leave, etc. ________ But first, let's celebrate! Yay baby girl!!!! 💕🥳💖🥰
"Is that a map?" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we're not busy making moss panels or retail window displays, we are creating custom art work for business and residential clients. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This mixed media piece for @brows_by_megan combines a painted surface with tissue paper and metallic leafing. The result is organically textured, luxurious, and sparkly. It also happens to looks like a costal map, which is a happy accident. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It seems absolutely bananas to say this, but I'm currently scheduling work that will take me to the end of 2021. Between Winterlights, retail holiday displays, and some very large moss panels, I'm expecting my year to be booked out by the end of August or so. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, consider this PSA your friendly reminder that if you want to work with Color Story Studio before the end of the year, please reach out as soon as possible. Email is best (find it in my bio) but if you'd like to start the conversation in the DM's, that's ok too!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ________⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #colorstorystudio #retailinteriors #retaildesigner #installationartist #retailvisuals #retaildisplay #visualmerchandising #retaildesign #displayartist #merchandising #retailmerchandising #retailexpert #retailconsultant #retailvisualexpert #indyartist
Better late than never? It's literally been the fastest July of my life! ________ Here's a quick tip for all the brick-and-mortar businesses out there... ________ Big retail corporations are going to introduce their fall windows in July, but that may be too early for you. If that's the case, make sure your window mannequins aren't too layered up. You can show new fall product, but again, make sure it feels "wear now". ________ This is just one of a handful of tips that I emailed my list this month. If you'd like an actionable To-Do list to tackle that will improve your store's appearance AND revenue, DM me your email address and I'll get you added to my list today! ________ #colorstorystudio #retaildisplay #retaildesign #storedesign #visualmerchandising #retailvisuals #brickandmortar #boutiquedesign #saloninterior #retailinterior #salondesign #springdisplay #springwindowdisplay #installationart #installationartist
Huge congrats to my client @dtegreenwood on their Grand Opening today!!! ________ The owner, Dylan, and I first started talking about his business idea in February and I’m proud to see it so quickly brought to life. ________ If you live on Indy’s south side you must check out @dtegreenwood for their wide range of treatments and spa services. ________ And swipe over for a rapid behind-the-scenes install video! ________ #colorstorystudio #mosspanel #medspagreenwoodindiana #medspaindy #medspainterior #mosswall #indymosswall #installationartist #indyartist

Throwing it way back to the first pegboard we ever made. We made it for @nineandroxy as a permanent fixture in their display window. My favorite detail is the black edge on the shelves. ________ It's so hard to find good retail fixtures that can flex to fit the products you carry. Pegboards definitely fit the bill, but if they just don't do it for you, reach out and we can design something specific to your needs. ________ #colorstorystudio #modernpegboard #oversizedpegboard #retailfixture #retailfixtures #pegboardfixture #retaildisplay #retailinterior #retailconsultant #visualmerchandising #retailvisuals #merchandising #pegboard
