Okay, I didn't want to scare you right off the bat with our studio. Thought I'd ease into it....
You may remember this gorgeous home office from yesterdays post. This I love. Braxton hasn't signed off on it yet, but I'm campaigning for a black and white color scheme. B/W figures prominently in the rest of our house, it's sophisticated, easy on the eyes, and you can add pops of color to liven things up a bit.
Time for the looong trip back to reality.......this is our studio/office as it is today. I must really like you guys, because no one gets to see this part of the house usually. Welcome to command central.
|This is my planning/dreaming/clean space. It's technically a drafting table, although I never actually tilt it. I draw and design here....oh, and twirl the chair back and forth....a lot.|
|This is Braxton's dirty space. Notice the tools hanging above the desk....he's tidy like that. This is where he makes lamps and other things.|
|Braxton's clean space. This is where he designs and makes quick drawings of ideas for future designs.|
|The Computer desk. This is where I post and do research for the blog. Whenever Braxton sits here, there is lots and lots of cussing because Minerva ( what, you don't name your computer?) is slower than his PC.|
|One end of the room has double french doors. Even though the room is partially under ground there really is quite a lot of natural light. I rarely turn on the lights in the daytime.|
|The stairs, which we painted blue along with the desk lamps, leading down to the office from the main house.|
|This has much more white than I had in mind, but I love the clean vibe. The super shiny desk top will really throw a lot of light around.|
|Oh my God, the chairs. Heaven. I would love to hang black and white photos and I think the black frames are really sharp. My walls are already white, so this could actually work for me.|
|Industrial chic. Nice, but not quite right for us.|
|A little too clinical, but again, black and white.|
|Love the nature motif.|
|Perhaps my favorite.|
|If I can't convince Braxton to go with the trippy zebra, I also like this more sophisticated choice.|
My plan is to give little updates on our progress every Friday. Now that I've put it in writing, I have to do it, right?
We are expecting beautiful weekend weather here in Virginia. I hope the same for you.
Have a beautiful day.
