Still Somewhat of a “Pipe Dream”…

When we decided to leave New York, I was the designated “house hunter”…in retrospect,  that was an awesome challenge.  We had many of the usual requirements, but top on MY list was a studio.  Did I get it?  Well, not exactly…

I looked at some bona fide ones.  Real studios with a track record…art on the walls, paint splattered on the floor,  good vibes…do you think they “convey”?… (real estate speak).  In the end, “must-haves’, aside, we were seduced by a sunset across a valley…the house just came with it.  “It” happens every night (how could I have been missing those colors? for 30 years!)…gorgeous, but STILL…a studio? nope.

I picked a bedroom with a closet (two, actually)…THAT was a step in the right direction.  Look closely at the photo.  That closet actually has my name on it.  Destiny! With only one exception, I have never had a “studio” with a real closet…with doors…that close…and hide the stash!  (My number ONE requirement)

That bedroom had an odd little room attached to it.

B-i-i-i-g closet?  perhaps…

Just outside of the room was an odd space.  Sort of like a group study corral (the family had five kids).  It “went” the day we closed on the house…but the space remained.  

A reading spot?  No light…maybe good for a photography set-up?  a library?

You can see where this is going, I am sure.  The house with “no studio” was showing some promise.  Did I mention the bathroom just off the “library”?  But where would the paper stuff go?  Hmmm.  How about that other room just to the left of the back stairs?  To make a long story short, I have claimed it ALL.  Four closets!  With shelves “to order”… The color choices remain “unique”, the piles, a bit daunting…but it is ALL mine…stay tuned.

ps:  My mom is better.  At 87, I admire her determination to “get her life back”.  Another, “work in progress”.

  1. Ahhhhh Yes! Let it ALL be your Studio and enjoy every inch!
    Beautiful Floors!
    Will be fun to see how the piles and boxes unpack & claim their new cozy spots!
