It's been said that visualizing what you want in life can make it happen -- and this little interior design studio is a testament to the power of positive thinking! For the last 2 years, I've wanted a light, bright and happy place to work outside of my home -- and in January of this year, I signed a lease on a beautiful space in downtown Lafayette, CA.
The studio serves as my workplace, and a mini-showroom where I have samples of a fabulous furniture line that I'm representing called Robin Bruce Furniture; along with gorgeous, custom framed, original art (for sale) by talented emerging artist Bridgette Thornton.
I thought it would be fun to show you in a series of blog posts, the before and after photos of how I took the space (previously inhabited by a hairdresser), and revamped it into my studio!
This is how the front right wall looked the first day that I got the space. I had that linoleum ripped up pronto, and had the walls smoothed and painted Edgecomb Gray by Benjamin Moore.
Smooth walls were an important visual factor for me in this space, because I didn't want the existing distressed wall texture to take away from the art that I would be hanging.
The biggest impact was made with the installation of a floating laminate faux wood floor -- it made a huge difference!
A pretty chandelier by Regina Andrew added a little glam to the space. The chandelier comes in 3 sizes and it's super affordable -- email me if you are interested in pricing. :)
Stay tuned for more before and after photos of this space!
Thanks for stopping by!
