studio sneak peek

i know i promised i would show you some photos of my studio, so i've decided to give a little sneak peek before it's completely ready.  in my last apartment, my studio was so cluttered and not very inspiring, so this time around i knew i wanted to create a sanctuary where i could relax and let the creative juices flow.  i decided i wanted a seating area, so i could just hang out in my studio and be comfortable while reading or making things.  that area of the room is pretty much finished now, so here it is!


one of my favorite things in the seating area is my new rug, which i ordered from pbteen.  the colors in the rug help tie together everything in the room, and they really brighten up the place... plus it was on sale!  the floor pillow is also from pbteen, but it was waaaay on sale when i bought it and they are sold out now.

the loveseat is an old klippan from ikea... i ditched the worn out navy blue slip cover (from my husband's bachelor pad in grad school) in favor of a fun, furry white one.  i love it!  i made almost all the pillows on the couch, except for the two matching sequined ones in either corner, which my sister picked up at home goods.  the three pillows in front are made from my own fabric designs, printed from spoonflower.com (you may recognize my "helena" and "sing" illustrations from the shop!)... thanks to jess for recommending the site, it is fantastic!

i also made the cork board out of an old frame i found in my parents' garage.  you can see my new year's resolutions hanging in the upper left corner, along with artwork by some etsy faves like shannon rankin and shawn stucky.

i have been having a great time putting everything together in the new place, and i'm really happy with how it's turning out.  i can't wait to show more pictures once everything is ready!

xoxo,
lesley
