The Schroeder family asked chip for an outdoor space where their family could come together and create, so in his design, Chip included an art studio so that the family could come together and have a space to create and keep their art.
Chip Wade and his crew from HGTV's Elbow Room removed an old, dilapidated playground and replaced it with an inviting art studio so that the Schroeders could pursue their passion for creativity. The studio is serene with a beautiful chandelier, plush chairs and beautiful art painted by the family.
Designer Justine Sterling transformed a low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial to create a studio. It’s a walkout basement with two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space to create a project room for the children. The room is now a lively children's workspace.
The shed-style art studio structure has two sliding glass door entries and clerestory windows to maximize the natural light. Concrete pavers with Mexican pebble joints surround the building for a clean, polished look.
A blue patterned wallpaper adorns the walls of the desk area in the Summit Art Studio. The space features a variety of patterns and textures. A drawing desk features storage space to keep art supplies.
One of the elements of this backyard makeover was an art studio that can double as guest quarters. It sits on a raised turf area, with grassy lawn adjacent: perfect lounging for the owners' big dogs when the artist is at work.
This vestibule combines warm finishes with rich textiles and artwork to create an intimate space. The custom-designed double doors pocket carefully into back-lit niches and offer a dramatic entrance to the art studio, which sits at the back of the house like a hidden gem.
This backyard art studio is designed as a contemporary work space outside of the main residence and paired with a functional and beautiful low-water landscape with clean lines to match. The studio features sliding glass doors and clerestory windows to maximize natural light and is surrounded by sleek concrete pavers and Mexican pebble joints.
This low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial is now a lively children’s workspace. Artwork—hung from Ikea picture rails and curtain rods with clips—fills the room with vibrant color. In this electronics-free zone, the kids paint, draw and play games at their white craft table.
A spiral staircase leads to the downstairs lounge, which was designed to be more of a creative outlet for artists seeking inspiration. Here, black and white accents offer the perfect foundation for bold patterns, while a cushioned sofa and matching chairs give the owners room to discuss their latest projects.
