[ my studio tour ]

SO TODAY I thought I'd give you a little glimpse into the room I seem to be spending WAY too much time in nowadays ~ my studio, aka office.

I'll warn you now ~ don't expect to be blown out of your chair or anything ~ I haven't really done all that much to it!


It is a fairly bright room, with no direct sun but a nice big window to look out of. I can watch 'pacing man' come out onto his balcony a few times a day to pace back and forth, or 'underwear guy' who comes out in his whities to talk on his phone.


Yes, I know, these are fakes but hey, at least they add a bit of pretty in here.


I love my numbered boxes from Pottery Barn and jar of antique thread spools.


A view from the doorway ~ notice all the IKEA finds. Cheap and cheerful! I store all my fabrics and sewing supplies in the drawers ~ keeps things nice and tidy.


My matryoshka dolls and big clock that I can't seem to get mounted up onto the concrete wall without screwing in a hole.


A view to the other corner ~ this room's pretty small.


My embroidery hoop art that definitely gives the pale walls some personality.


And of course the junky area. Obviously I've still got some projects to tackle someday!



But for now, it's working just fine. I wonder who's down at the pool...

Ok, back to work! After completing my character outlines, my plot outline, my chapter outline, I've got to submit my first actual chapter tonight. Hope you enjoyed the mini tour!

I am blown out of my chair at how cute and tidy it is. Love it. If you find yourself in Vancouver, please help me organize mine. ;)

Looks great, Lisa! Much more tidy than my office which looks like a tornado came through. Working on getting it put back together today. That's the plan anyway. :)

Nice and bright! I love work spaces like that. Love your drapes. Ikea too? Or did you make those? Loving the fabric. :-)

I love the drapes, too! Such a nice bright space. Too funny that you see 'pacing man' and 'underwear guy' ... hahaha...

Lisa,

How tidy is your study!! That's amazing how organised you are! Much easier to work in a clutter free office. Love all the white, it brightens up the room.

All things nice...

I would love to work in your office! I love the white contrasted with the dark wood floors and how everything looks so clean!

Your office is lovely, Lisa! So clean and bright. No picture of underwear guy? Perhaps that's best :)

Lynda @ Happenstance Home said...

Adorable room. Love the drapes! I love that you name people too - we have a whole bunch of "characters" that we dont know personally, but we name based on their actions, etc. Two liter smoking guy is one of our faves. Best wishes on your writing. I havent been on the computer much lately so Im just catching up a little.

Your office is a million times cuter than mine.....for sure!
