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.
This Brooklyn sculpture studio is a bright and inviting space for artists to have sight lines to each other, easy access to physically help each other, and easy communication due to an open floor plan.
An artist wanted a space that would call her to create. The studio is tucked in between existing trees in close proximity to the main house providing a visual connection to her family that can easily be broken and re-established.
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 the basement, a sound proofed music studio was added for the family's budding musician. Sound proof panels were already in place, so designers revamped the area with a bright couch, new carpet, and profession style cabinets to make the space complete.
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 effective layout of this space gives it the full functionality of a non-studio apartment. Offset from the bedroom, the sofa faces the back wall creating an intimate seating area of its own. A cubicle shelf unit serves as a simple room divider between the living room and bedroom. Small, sleek accessories and decor make the space visually appealing while keeping it from appearing cluttered or busy. Tip: Use warm colors, like orange and taupe, to make the room look cozy without feeling dark. Design by HGTV fan bearkelley
The studio/pool house is actually a freestanding structure, but it feels connected to the main house because of a wood-clad accent wall. Pergolas cantilever out over the deck providing shade and visual interest.
Connecticut-based artist Joe Fig makes gorgeously detailed dollhouse-scale miniature set pieces of contemporary artists' studios. Fig visits and conducts interviews with actual working artists and has documented the working spaces, materials and even miniature paintings in progress of artists including Chuck Close, Roxy Paine, Eric Fischl and Tom Friedman. "I find artists to be some of the hardest working people I know," Fig told Think Small author Eva Katz.
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.
