I have been putting off fixing up my studio forever and at this point, it’s downright embarrassing. I have plenty of space and great natural light. I’ve also played around with the furniture placement and think I’ve come up with the optimal layout. But as usual, I have too many ideas and I’m torn as to which direction to go. Warning: this is going to be a long thinking out loud session.
I had always planned on a light, airy space like these:
with an inspiration wall like these:
and an area for painting like these:
shelves full of books:
and an area for lounging. I have a big couch draped in white just like this:
Now if that were all, I’d be done (or at least, I could be done). But as usual, I have too many ideas and can’t make up my mind which way to go. I mentioned my four red leather chairs last week. They remind me of chairs you might find in a Paris bistro like these:
I like having them in my studio – one is at the computer, one is on the other side of my work table, one is in the painting corner, and the fourth one floats around. But I think that red leather lends itself better to looks like these:
So I don’t know whether I want to work the room around these chairs or just store them and keep to my light, white color scheme?
Or a third option may be to try to work the red as the accent color like in these photos:
If I use red, I think I’d also like to add some yellow because currently I’m just in love with it and it goes so well with red:
I think that’s enough talking. I need to make a decision, get off my butt and just do it.
