I thought I’d share a few updates on the studio! We’ve had it for almost two months and has become my favorite place to be! Not only is it a place that can bring about peace + quiet, it’s also a place where people feel comfortable and can collaborate.
Our other friend Tim has been using his talents to give us the most amazing custom addition! We are seriously so lucky. He just installed this shelf/standing desk up at the front. Look at that copper detailing! He also built the table (in the top photo). We found an artist on Etsy to make us that custom metal diamond.
Overall it’s been really amazing. We’ve stayed within our budget and it’s makes such a difference. I don’t sit in the studio feeling guilty for throwing non-existent money at unnecessary decor. My tips for someone investing in a workspace?
- Set a budget and stick to it! It’ll never REALLY feel “finished” so take it slow.
- Go to IKEA for lamps, rugs + frames (so cheap!)
- Barter + trade for services or items.
- Invite people in. Even if it’s feels out of the way! Ours doesn’t get a lot of foot traffic but we are intentional about hosting or meetings.
