Art Studio Inspiration

Surprise! I am posting this on a Friday, although I regularly post here every Monday. I wanted you to see the mood and inspiration board behind my upcoming design studio redo project. I have been planning to update my art studio for some time now. In fact, its has been evolving and changing over the years, but there are always tons of art supplies and tons of products being made, so it was hard for me to find the time for an update.

I knew that I really needed to do it this Summer before I hosted my Shibori workshop class because I was expecting a group of 10 people and I wanted the space to be more functional and streamlined place for them to create.

Also, I am a big believer in decluttering as an artist to let go of old projects and create a space for new more meaningful projects to arise. Apparently, a good time to bring creative projects like this to fruition is during the full moon, so the fact that the studio redo just happened to coincide with the full moon in July, appealed to my mystical side as well…more on that later. 

First, I created studio space pin board on Pinterest where I currently collect photos of ideas that appeal to me for a studio space. If you would like to join this board and pic high quality studio pictures along with me please message me on Pinterest and I will add you to the board.

Art Studio Mood Board

I am drawn to the light and bright palette of the photos above, I also had some similar pieces in my studio. My built-in cabinetry is almost identical to the vertical corner storage in the photo on the left. Also, I have a long custom butcher block work table, that I use to build my products. These photos capture some of the current pieces in my studio and the overall coastal modern feeling that I wanted to create. As a product designer, I prefer a mostly white workspace because it is a clean slate, much like the walls of an art gallery. The white paint allows me to focus on the products that I design. ​

Home Tour

I have intended to share a glimpse into our own living space since I started PinkPianos in 2009. While many of these walls and backdrops my look familiar, (I have shot many Before and Afters in various rooms of our flat) this is the most complete peak of the space ’til date. One activity that never bores me is restyling the mantle, since out fireplace is decoration only, I always like to dress it up with different accessories. Our friend and photographer, Amelia took all of these pictures on the way to a photo shoot of my client’s space. One thing I noticed when putting together this post is that nearly all of the rooms in our home have original artworks. Part of the reason is because I know plenty of artists and the flip-side is that artwork is an affordable and fun way to customize a living space. The turntables belong to my husband and they have provided endless amounts of musical entertainment and energy. The last room that I will share with you is my studio. Every artist needs a light-filled workspace. Photo ledges are a great way to organize paintings and visual inspiration. I have plans for a large linen tack board in the works over the next few weeks.

Until next time, I’d love to hear what you think about our ephemeral yet, curated place. Feels good to be back after a weekend of celebration!
