Studio Friday: Negative Space

This is my studyroom/studio, which you may have already seen on my flickr site. I actually love my room a lot! I painted it pink, because I have always wanted to have a room with pink walls and white furniture. I just wish I were allowed to paint the window frames white, too. Even though I love this room, there are still some corners I don´t like that much, because that´s where I store all the clutter that I don´t have room for. Take a look here:

This is where I store my sewing machine, drawing-blocks, some notebooks (because the shelves are already packed), a bag with wool in it, an old shirt that I wear when painting, and sometimes other pieces of clothing, too, as you can see...

Pink walls.... I love them. I am trying right now to decide what colors to paint my office. I think I am going to use a sage shade.

The pink walls are fab, I've told you allready. I'm so in envy! :-)

And I'm a bag lady too, with boxes and paper bags behind the armchair in the living room, next to my bed, in the hallway. You are brave to take a photo of your bags!

take care!

You have a lovely room there. I like the big windows and the pink walls! It is indeed a shame you can't paint your window frames white. I think it would make the room look bigger.

it reminds me so much of back home...sigh!
I love your room, your wall color is so fabulously great!! The brown window frames (oh I know how heavy those are to open up, hahaah) are a fantastic contrast to the soft pink!!! That is exactly what I love!! Funny how that is so negative for you.

My space which is tiny in comparison to your slooks like your little pile of things, hahaha! I just have things all over the place. I will save up thopugh so I can get some shelves one day ;-)

Thank you Marianne and Tine for the compliments on my room, too!

And Tine, you can see the picture on the easel, if you go to my flickr page! It´s the pastel drawing of some tulips I made in my drawing class. You can find even more of my drawings there. :-)
