Art Studio

My boyfriend has promised to help me set up a little studio where we are temporarily living this summer. I haven't had my own studio or even a little workspace in forever ever. I have been dreaming hardcore about how I would want it to look. I have seen so many pictures of other artist's work spaces...with there personalized inspiration boards and lots of containers full of pencils and pens and papers and shelves brimming with little personal quirky things and artworks. I look forward to have a home where I can have a real permanent studio. Some beautiful day this will be true....but for now it will be in the attic space of the car dealership where we are living (sounds luxurious I know) with a huge window with a rather gorgeous view of the ocean...even though there is a rather very ugly industrial port and parking lot in the view too....but I cancel that out.

Hmmm...some inspiration maybe.

My dream studio would of course have to be seperated from the main house in a sweet little mini cottage like this. On the back I would have huge windows to see the view of the ocean or a gorgeous green forest and also to let in lots of warm bright light to work easier. When I took a break from my artwork I would have lots of flower pots and plants outside my little cottage to tend to. I just adore the blue door on the traditional Falu red with white trim cottage. The flowering tree is also so romantic. I imagine the petals would fall to the little entrance creating a sweet welcoming mat where I could have a little bench.

On the inside I would have to have a huge inspiration board with cut outs from magazines and paper scraps and ribbons etc. The walls would be painted light pink or light turqoise or have pretty floral wallpaper...I can't deside. I would also have collage wall of mix matched frames with works from other artists I adore. I love the quirky chandelier too with birdies, flowers, butterflies and ribbons hanging from it.





If only...
