the new studio (interior!)

Michael & I moved everything out of the old & unlimited studio over the weekend, and into the newly-built studio behind our house.  Surprisingly, I wasn’t super sentimental about leaving the old space, even though I loved it dearly.  Perhaps I know it’s not really goodbye, as I live three doors down and know that I will continue to walk by the space every single day.  Or maybe it’s simply because I’m so excited about the new studio- a space of our own that we’ve been able to design from scratch!

We worked hard to make the studio look as if it’s always been tucked back behind our 18th century cape.  The exposed beams (found in Boothbay Harbor!), the gray floors, the horizontal planking, the beadboard ceiling, and the casement & awning windows all add to the overall historic feel of the building.

The famous door desk that has found its way all over the internet from Planet Green to Apartment Therapy most certainly made the move to the new studio!  As did my favorite Pottery Barn chair & office accessories!

A few tulips from Michael!

I was lucky to be able to incorporate a lot of the same furniture from the old studio .  In addition to the door desk, I brought along the zinc-topped table, the wooden bench, and the green storage compartment.  I was, however, able to make a few fun purchases for the new space, including a couple of modern yellow chairs from West Elm, a few pendant lights, a Dash & Albert rug, and the fireplace!

What fun!  Now instead of walking down the block to work, I simply walk out back.  I’m able to watch Orvis romp & roll in the yard, and when he grows tired of chewing on sticks & chasing squirrels, he simply waits by the door to come in and nap by the fire.  The entire setup could not be more perfect for our lifestyle!

Photos of the exterior are coming soon!  I need to finish the wreath for the newly painted blue door, attach strap hinges on the carriage house “doors,” and finish spreading some mulch around the new plants!
