As I mentioned in my last post, we’re moving into a new house! Along with all of the decorating I’m doing everywhere else, I also get to create my new studio from a pretty raw space. I’ll be setting up shop in a big open room in our finished attic. Pros: separate work space, it’s big enough to have several different work stations, there’s a door to the rest of the house so it will be quiet. Cons: the ceiling is low, so I have to be super careful about what furniture I’m buying, the floor is carpeted (so that eliminates any possibility of doing to occasional sanding up there…maybe good exercise to go up & down the flights of stairs ten times a day?:), & there’s not a ton of natural light… I mean, there’s enough to work, but we’re probably going to try to get some more windows in there at some point. To compensate for now, I’m going with all white to lighten up the space–white walls, white furniture (though honestly it’s always been my dream to have an all white studio. I just love the clean, bright look of it.) Oh, & did I mention that I’m also doing this project on a VERY small budget? This is when my bargain hunting becomes a serious gift. I know exactly what I want, & I’m just not willing to settle! I’ll be working on it over the next month, but in the meantime here’s some of my inspiration.
This set up is so simple & lovely with the Ikea desk & drawers. Those drawers are perfect for all of my little paper crafting supplies.
Probably anyone who’s searched for office space on pinterest has had this lovely one show up. Again, I want to go with white, but I love how well curated all the shelving is!
This one is simply gorgeous. Love the wallpaper, the lighting, everything. With the way the ceiling is angled in our new house, I might be able to do something similar against the window…one day. (and that acrylic chair is from Ikea, by the way..)
And this white desk with all white/acrylic/gold is gorgeous. I can’t wait to have a real desk! (already have it, tracked exactly what I wanted down on craigslist & made my husband drive me to queens one day to get it…)
With those lovelies in mind, I created this mood board with Bazaart (have y’all checked it out yet? Seriously, do it.)
I’ll post pics as my project continues!
