Okay, I thought I better share some of what is going on in our space!
Progress has been slower than we desire in the remodel and construction of our new studio space, but none-the-less, it is finally moving along! We are a bit further than these photos will show now, but I will give another update soon, as things are changing every day around here.
To start off with… this space was awful when we signed the lease…. a dark, dirty storage room in the lower level of the mansion that had not been rented out before. We knew it had potential for our first joint studio space… so we plunged ahead anyway!
Here is what we found….
Just to let you know… none of the stuff in the space was ours at this point, so it the cleaning staff had to remove all the items stored there before we could even get to the next step.
Oh, these pipes… they have been quite the challenge. We have chosen to ignore the ones on the ceiling (as most other tenants on our level have) but the ones coming down the wall are being encased in a wall for the most part.
The joy of old buildings!
Okay… this is a small hint as to what is to come for the space. We used some inspiration from this House Beautiful issue to add some design and style to our space. To transform this space we will definitely be pulling all of our design tricks out. Decorating with paint and color will be the most transforming elements. In the next post… I will let you in a bit more on what that inspiration direction is!
That’s all for today… thanks for stopping by!
