This home workspace features all the amenities needed for an art studio, including a sink and ample natural light. A long countertop provides additional workspace, while a center table creates a great spot for completing all types of craft projects. Blue tile gives a nod to the home's waterfront locale.
Simple lines of the desk and a mix of metal and wood on the workstation chair keep things neat and streamlined while the art reflects the beauty of the Northwest with mountain vistas and Seattle’s Space Needle.
Fun details bring some personality and vibrancy to the outdoor space. A colorful pom pom garland is simply strung across a vintage easel and paired with a large succulent plant. On chilly nights you can hang cozy blankets on the rungs of the easel to switch up the look even more.
To use the table for artistic reasons, it's outfitted with practical organizers to keep supplies within reach. An upcycled soup can keeps paintbrushes handy while a tabletop easel allows resident artists to work on their masterpieces at their leisure.
Just off the master bedroom is a spacious master bath featuring two dressing areas and a step down shower room that gives the feeling of a spa-like oasis. One theme of this showhouse was the variety of high quality artwork and novel ways to display it including this embroidery displayed on a stand-alone easel.
This long, narrow space is used to its maximum advantage as a home office and studio, with a long built-in desk that's situated ideally to enjoy this home's sweeping waterfront views. An easel in the corner gets the benefit of loads of natural sunlight from the room's many windows. A drafting table is functional for projects of all kinds.
As the home took shape through multiple renovations, Erin and Andrew reserved the later phases for expanding the home further, taking on external projects like widening the driveway and adding a stone retaining wall. The basement was another of the family’s last renovations. It was converted specifically with Henry in mind, and it has the color palette to prove it. Like in his bedroom, reds, blues and whites intertwine throughout the space. With an easel for art and fun art on the wall it’s the perfect play space for expanding little minds.
Ironically enough, before even knowing what the room was once used for, designer Young Huh envisioned it as an art studio—the overhead lighting is that good! Her magical design, called “Young at Art,” explores the allure of an artist’s studio. The walls are covered with Fromental’s Braque (a large-scale collage inspired by Cubism) while a Mason Gerard easel and an array of abstract art complete the design.
The closet, painted a bold pink and filled with cans of paint and figurine palm trees, was a happy surprise.
