Welcome to the space I spend most of my days in... my studio. I realized I never shared this space since I recently changed from two rooms into one. I downsized alot of supplies and created a space that would make me want to be in day after day. I daydream of having a huge studio one day... but for now, this 10x10 room will do. Actually, this is MASSIVE compared to the space I had in my rent house just 2 years ago.
There isn't any furniture in this room that is store bought. It is all old stuff that came from my parents house, so it's very sentimental and homey... I'm slowly trying to get rid of all of my plastic boxes and just use old wooden boxes and muffin tins for my supply storage. I have my eye on a huge antique stamp drawer I spotted at our local antique mall. I'm hoping its still there next time I get paid from our local shops that carry my jewelry. It's only $25 which is actually a steal, but we are being super careful with our $$ right now b/c things are tight to say the least. I'm also using several of my mom's vintage mixing bowls for storage as well. I love the pops of teal mixed in with all the wood. The awesome orange velvet chair was a $10 thrift store find!!! It is such a rad chair. A little wonky, but I still love using it. That cool wooden peg hanger that I have all of my necklaces hanging on was a .50 cent thrift find!!! What! I just love little gems like that. The beautiful wooden scroll mirror is a piece my dad made. One of his earliest pieces actually from his lifetime of being a woodworker. I'm so honored to have it hanging in my space.
I believe making your creative space an inspiring place to be in is so important. At least for me it is. Being a full time designer, alot of time is spent in this space, so having it be a place that I want to be in is key. Do you have a studio space that you feel at home in? I would love to see it if so, send me a link!
