I realized that several months ago I promised to share a look inside my studio space, and I’ve finally gotten around to taking some photos. It’s probably always going to be a work in progress, but I thought it would be fun to have a record of the current setup. Maybe the next time I have an update, I’ll also have better photography skills. 🙂
The desk (similar) and chair are from IKEA. I stained the desk’s legs and love how the little shelves give me easy access to my most-used reference books. To the right of the desk I’ve tucked away a photography lightbox Nathan built for me, as well as a beautiful, vintage Replogle black ocean globe (I’ve always wanted one of these!).
This was a Christmas gift from my parents. Nathan and I recently refinished the stand (really pretty walnut), and I love how it turned out.
Here are a few of the things on my desktop, including the best candle ever—oatmeal cookie (similar)! I’m trying to keep the desk mostly clear except for the things I use every day. I’m glad Nathan talked me into upsizing to the mid-sized desktop— it’s nice to have the space to spread out.
On the main wall I have a mini gallery wall started, including prints of Marc Chagall paintings that we displayed at our wedding, the poster for the 2011 film version of Jane Eyre (Nathan and I saw this at the Chicago premiere), a You Make Everything Beautiful print from Rifle Paper Co., and Starry Night Deconstructed. I plan to add to this as soon as some lovely picture frames I’ve been watching finally go on sale.
Behind my desk I have two ceiling-height bookshelves, and a few weeks ago I played around with roughly organizing the books by color. I’m a little late in hopping on this bandwagon, but it’s fun for a change and makes me look at my library in a new way.
Thanks for letting me share! What does your home workspace look like?
