My Studio


Well, here it is.....my 'new' studio.

I still have some organizing left to do,
but I've been creating away this last week
and loving it.



My room is on the front of the house now,
and I have two windows which lets in more light.

I love these windows because they're low
enough that I can see out of them while I'm playing.



My walls are painted Heirloom Lace, the
furniture is white and the carpet is soft beige.

I love how much lighter and brighter the room is.




I swiped my corner cabinet from the livingroom
so I would have more space to hold my pretties.





I also booted out my little computer desk
and traded it for a 6 foot table because
I make just as much clutter at my computer
as I do on my work table.



I placed a vintage door between my computer table
and my cabinets which is really fun
because it makes it feel like two separate spaces.



I didn't have enough room for my ironing board,
so I created my own on top of my fabric dresser,
and it's working out great.

I took a piece of wood the size of the dresser top,
covered it with a thick terry cloth
and a piece of muslin to match my room.


Back to playing!

Have a beautifully creative day!

Debi, it's gorgeous! You must be in heaven with all the natural light coming in. I love everything about it, but I especially like the way you've stored your trims in that cubbie unit. What a great idea. And the ironing surface is inspired!

Great job!

Debi, such a beautiful space! And I am in complete envy of your lace storage! Where did you find it? What's it called? (so I can search etsy/ebay for something similar)...

Sweet Debi- I think this is one of the prettiest "play rooms" I have ever seen- EVER! It is just perfect and not only a great place to WORK and create but a place to be and just love spending time there! I would LOVE a pretty, feminine room like that- You have worked hard to get that and I am so happy for you! xo Diana

SOOO pretty. I would never get any work done. so many beautiful things to look at. Very peaceful.

Karen said...

Oh Debi It is just perfect! You have to be so happy! I love that you have two windows. And it's even raining outside!!! I would love that!!!

If you could see mine now...Holy cow what have done? Of course changing things up instantly comes to mind - but...time is a factor here.

I am waiting for the flooring guys as I write. Tonight, it all goes back in...sigh.

Of course Mark has decided he wants hard wood in his office now too - so add one more room to the growing list of new flooring!! YIKES!

You are keeping me sane...thank you!

HAGD! Karen

this is stunning...I'd have to say that I really love your wall cubby of laces and trims....have you used my crochet trim yet..I was actually trying to find it in among your gorgeously stunning collection of beauties!
What fun you must have in your new room....I'll bet you go in there and can't help but be overwhelmed with inspiration.....galore! am I right to assume you'll be in there most out of all the rooms in your house?

the two windows...are great...what a luxury it is indeed to have natural lighting when you're creating...that in itself is inspiring!

thanks so much for sharing this!
I loved every ounce..and I'm going to go through the photos again after posting this comment!

Sonia said...

Oh Debi,
Thank you for coming by last night. Reminded me I had to come check out your 'New'studio. And I am swoooning. I love it. It all looks so pretty decorated and so organized. I like the colors you chose and textures... The lampshade frame idea is awesome!!
I should be moving to VA in the end of Feb, beginning of March so I am starting to pack stuff slowly... Moving to a smaller space so I will need to get rid of some things. Wish me luck.

PS. I apologize for not being as good about keeping up with blogs but I do think about you. Have been crazy busy here.

Love and Hugs to you Debi,
Your friend
Sonia
