With a nod to the California artists who draw inspiration from the state's rugged beauty, this room is the perfect space to conceive of and create art in the San Francisco Decorator Showhouse 2014. Sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay and the Presidio greet the artist, and the paint-splattered studio floor is a work of art in its own right.
This former garage was converted into a dedicated music and studio space. New drywall, baseboards and trim were added as well more masculine touches including dark hardwood floors, industrial shelving, leather and wood chairs and an oversized ceiling fan, as seen on Fixer Upper.
In designing his backyard home office/writing studio, Marco Morelli went with a warm but dramatic look. He chose Studio Shed's corrugated steel panels and Collins Block siding to sheath his shed's exterior. The red exterior complements and contrasts with his home's creamy yellow exterior. Once their shed was in place, the Morellis added a path, vegetable beds and play area.
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.
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.
