I know, I know. I’m a horrible friend. It has been forever since we last talked about the studio. The truth is, summer showed up and our lives got really busy and kind of flipped inside out. It put the studio on the back burner in terms of decorating it and really getting settled in, but that’s [finally] all about to change! My mom has helped me out a bit this week, going and picking up some much-needed shelving, and it has gotten me really fired up to get organized and cozy in there. Cozy. That’s the operative word. In a way the prolonged delay has been a blessing. I’ve realized that I want to make a bit of shift in designing the space. I’m still totally in love with the bright white walls and painted floors, but when it comes to everything else, I definitely want a cozy vibe. This little home office I spied over on West Elm’s blog is pretty close to striking the chord I want to hit when finishing up the space.
I love super clean, bright white, girly spaces, but in truth I’m a lady who is all about the cozy. I love rich jewel tones, a bit of gold, warm wood tones, and a comfy place to sit. My desk chair is high backed and upholstered. I typically sit cross-legged behind my desk, barefoot with my hair piled on top of my head in a messy top knot. I like making a steaming cup of coffee and feeling enveloped in warmth. Those are the spaces where I feel most comfortable, most inspired and most invigorated. So, like I said. I’m so glad I took a bit of time to really mull this over and make moves in that direction. Here’s hoping that in a few weeks or so I’ll have a finished space to show off! In the meantime, I thought I’d share a little update about my thought process and when it’s all said and done I’ll break it down for you all helpful-like. Stay tuned!Upperlyne & Co. from West Elm.]
