Renovation Nation: Phase One, Completed

Yay! One year ago this month we began demo-ing on our condo. It's still a work in progress but one room is totally done- my studio! After being displaced for almost a year it feels so good to finally be back in my own space and I love the way it turned out. The wall color is Benjamin Moore "Grey Timber Wolf" which I chose because I wanted something light and calming, a color that would inspire me but also put me at ease whenever I entered the room. So far, it's been perfect.

I haven't hung anything on the walls yet so these pieces by Thirteenth Story and Thomas Durand (respectively) will have to hang out on the window sill for now. Also I should point out the aprons under the sills were hand-carved and stained by Seth (see why it took so long?!).

Seth brought home this "house warming" present the other day which is on a lacquered tray my parents brought back from Vietnam. One shot glass of water a month, I think I can handle that.

I'll be sure to post more pictures when I have the rest of the room set up. This might be the cleanest it will ever be so I had to make sure it was documented!

Looks great! You're motivating me to paint my studio. I like the idea of a pale gray - for me probably more in the green tones. Off to get samples!
