Studio Space

Photobucket

I'm really excited to say that I've found some studio space to work in here in Atlanta - really close to my house. The space has 3 rooms, plus a two hallways and a bathroom. It's really perfect for me and all of my creative ventures. I spent yesterday doing a little moving and painting, not to mention planning how I am going to jazz it up a little. I know it's just my studio, but it has to be at least a little inspirational, as far as looks go. I actually really dig the white walls and cement floors, but I think I'm going to paint the floors high-gloss white.

the little squares on the floor are just from the linoleum squares that were just removed.

I added a little unnecessary curb appeal yesterday. Chartreuse green planters with trees and a turquoise doors is a lot more "me" than the previously dingy white door.

I'm really excited to move all my artsy stuff into the space, and just be able to spread out everything and be creative. It's been a struggle to contain my "work" stuff here at our condo -- for the past year or so, whenever I've done something at home for a client (be it furniture or canvas work), I always feel the need to clean everything up and put it away during the project, so that our home stayed neat. Now, I can just leave my projects out and work on them as I like. Much better! Plus, I'll be able to work on client's larger pieces at my studio, versus invading their homes with moi. :)

All in all, a step in the right direction, and I couldn't be more excited.

  6. thanks, friends!

    angela - YES! As long as I get to see your loft! I actually tried looking at your blog last night for inspiration pics of it :)

    dayka - yes maam! It's super hard to find good artist space in this town. this space isn't planned to be an artist studio, bt it kind of worked out that way. however, i hear that the goat farm is a good place to call.
