For this recreation of a studio from a 1940’s radio show I worked to capture the bold confidence and joie de vivre felt in the United States circa 1945, shortly after victory in World War II.  To accent the age of the period suits and dresses that I pulled and altered I layered them over shirts and blouses in muted neutrals.

I maintained a color palette of earth tones punctuated by mature navys, dark greens, and maroons.

Character choices were made based on the personalities that the actors developed using three adjectives from a workshop exercise.
