Amanda I took great pride in setting up the studio when I moved into my new home. We went all out--buying pink and green tupperware bins (to match the logo/banner at the time) and even painted the walls bubblegum pink. We also ended up with black accents (I think it stemmed from the purchase of the cheapest area rug we could find, which happened to be black)--which somehow evolved into a mishmash of accessories in zebra print/houndstooth. We loved our space. It was bright and cheery and a symbol of our success thus far.
Long story short--my eyes were tired of looking at those bright pink walls. Our logo/banner has long been changed to something more neutral and felt like the room needed to reflect more of the Miskabelle style. So, the leftover tan paint ("peanut butter" to be exact) from my kitchen was graciously painted over the pink by my lovely husband. And from there, I began to give the room a more romantic, vintage feel (suiting for a vintage studio, huh?). Here's how it turned out (and click HERE to see how it looked before).
|Door-less closet as our rolling rack, cheap shelving displaying a mix of vintage and modern kitsch|
|collage of vintage wall art and framed fabric/scarves, romantic curtains, sewing desk, ugly but necessary plastic bins|
|Vivienne (the dress form) on gray photo backdrop wall, photo board decorated with vintage brooches/clip on earrings, desktop knick knacks in vintage wooden bowls|
It feels a lot more us. And I love that I didn't even spend a penny to make such a huge change. I am all about re-using found objects. The only issue? Now that Amanda lives in Virginia, we have a second "studio" space that needs prettied up. Re-do #2 on the way!
