This month I'm still looking at the Studio Space. I spend a fair bit of time in my office and studio, as do my clients, so it's important to me that it gives a great impression.
This week I've been traveling and had the opportunity to get into new surroundings (and stores) for added inspiration. This inspiration has lead to new ideas of what I want my studio to be.
Now here are the changes I can't wait to start making to The Home Studio: - Remove the Dark Green Carpet and Replace with a light toned laminate or hardwood flooring - Paint! The black walls help to prevent extra light bouncing around but it's so dark! I'm looking at going to a light grey to lighten it up (if I start adding too much colour it does funny things to peoples skin tones) - New couch or slipcover - looking at a nice ivory or linen colour. Something light and neutral - Bright textured/patterned throw pillows on the couch (pillows say polish, fun, and comfort to me) - Replace the wood table with a nice glass coffee table for extra lightness - Get some framed work, an Uppercase living quote, and decorative pieces up on the walls - Pick up some small decor items to add life to the space - And so much more!
And what wishlist would be complete without outlining the someday dream. Here's Mine!
The Dream Studio: - Large exhibition space to showcase my own work but also other local artists & photographers - Office space with printing, framing, and work spaces as well as a reading corner - Dressing Room & Bathroom for clients (think old hollywood style - Vanities, couches, Clothing Racks, etc - Large Studio with Large Windows for Natural Light work (and a way to block the light too when needed) plus prop storage space (maybe a separate room) - Lounge area (couches, coffee tables, comfy chairs, table & chairs set etc) for consultations & ordering sessions. - Glass walls for a more open and bright feel
