I am planning a little studio redo this fall.  Right now it has carpet.  Carpet and painting don’t live well together.  Case in point the huge red paint stain in the middle of the room (which my husband only recently came upon ;) .  So we will be putting in a new floor and while we have everything out, I am going to put a lot of thought into how it gets put back together.   Here are some images I’m using as inspiration. (Though what I’d really, really like are high ceilings with huge skylights, sigh)


I am painting most of the space white except for the interiors of two closets that are spaced just as in the first image.  The interiors are going to get a few coats of my very favorite paint, Farrow and Ball ‘off black‘.  The opposite wall in my studio I am also painting with ‘off black’.  I am also planning on white/grey floors and a long wood work surface in addition to the work table I already have.   So hopefully in a few months time I will have a much more efficient work space that is a bit softer on the eyes!

    Gorgeous inspiration photos! I’m sure it’ll turn out beautiful :) When I redid my studio, I was thrilled with the results and much more inspired to work (no sky lights – I’m in the basement with two tiny windows!)
