A concrete paver walkway with Mexican pebble joints leads from the main house to the backyard art studio. Pea gravel is used as a clean, budget-friendly mulch material, and plantings are kept to a minimal for an easy-to-maintain landscape.
Paired with a functional and beautiful low-water landscape with clean lines, this backyard art studio was designed for a client who wanted a contemporary work space outside of the main residence. The shed-style, finished studio structure with two sliding glass door entries and clerestory windows maximizes the natural light entering the space.
This bright white home art studio receives pops of orange, yellow and red to liven up the space. A pair of orange and white chevron armchairs grounded by an abstract yellow rug offer a small, comfortable sitting area while the artist is at work. The simple red table lines up with the windows and provides plenty of space for painting. Design by Holly Bender Interiors.
Before this room's makeover on HGTV Design Star, painter Lois's artwork and materials were scattered around the space. Contestant Danielle created this storage-packed workspace — complete with a view — to add daytime function to this dining room.
A backyard art studio is a contemporary work space outside of the main house, while cozy evenings can be spent around the fire pit. Minimal planting, modern details and exterior lighting complete the outdoor space with a polished look.
Concrete paver walkways with Mexican pebble joints lead from the main house to each area of the backyard: the art studio, the fire pit and the concrete patio. Pea gravel is used to create a low-water landscape for this California outdoor space.
Gentle mounds and boulder piles enhance the site's drainage and reduce the total planted area and water use. They also create wildlife habitats and collect runoff. A drainage “moat” was built to prevent runoff from collecting under the house.
The shed-style art studio has two sliding glass door entries and clerestory windows to maximize the natural light entering the space. Square concrete paver walkways with Mexican pebble joints connect the studio with the house, fire pit area and concrete patio. Pea gravel makes for a clean and budget-friendly mulch material.
After the backyard transformation by licensed contractor Chip Wade, the Schroeder residence in Atlanta, GA now has a lot of function. An old playground is replaced with an art studio complete with a Dutch door, dog bed, sitting area and painting desk, as seen on HGTV and DIY Network's Elbow Room. Before the renovation, the Schroeder family lacked a place to play and make art.
This studio was designed as a workspace to create original artwork but also to showcase the client's art, artifacts and personal collections. While most of the furnishings in the room feel industrial, the lighted "Texas" sign brings a bit of folk art whimsy to the space. The rugged table and mismatched chairs provides a working surface for multiple people and projects, and pieces of modern art interjects color into the white room.
