My Studio

Come along with me, I’m going to give you a tour of my studio loft! Pretend you are just walking up the stairs and as you reach the top this is what you see…the room is yellow with pink accents. Very feminine and a bit shabby!

On the left hand side is a walk in closet that holds fabric, copier, business file cabinets and that yucky ironing board we all need. I had a plug put in the closet so it would be its own little room. Things can be messy and you don’t see them (no peaks, sorry).

Thanks to Pottery Barn I have the perfect work stations. Cutting height and lots of storage cubes. Add some bar stools and you never have to leave. Underneath the windows are my old sewing desks and file cabinets (also from Pottery Barn). 3 hours a day of direct sunlight so I had blinds installed. I love light, so most of the time the blinds are up.

Over in the right corner is my design wall, drafting table and yes, that old white TV! Doesn’t Bessy look great next to my pretty pink featherweight? 3 sewing machines in all, but the little pink featherweight is my favorite. (A Pfaff and a Bernina are very happy here too. Not to insult the other machines…they do a lot of work for us.) All those little drawers under the TV hold the drawings etc. for the new quilts I’m working on.

From the closet area you can see my computer in the corner. I have a corner desk and a wireless lap top! I am one happy designer!

  • Cindy Roberts - Wow! It must be pure joy to work in your new studio. I see quite a few cute pink items, too. It’s heart warming to see my cutepinkstuff in your home! Anne, have you considered an ironing board that folds into the wall? My husband installed one in my laundry room. I love it because I don’t have to store the unsightly, heavy contraption in my closet, pull it out and drag it around looking for a cool place with an outlet. I actually iron more now and look forward to using my rose scented linen water! I’ll post it on my blog just for you! I’m sure your hubby doesn’t want you to see this post! I purchased the unit at Home Depot for $170. Lowe’s has it too. Hope to hear from you when you get a breather! CindyReplyCancel

  • Amanda - It’s beautiful! My sewing room is the only room in the house that hasn’t been painted in the 11 years that we have lived here. It’s all because I can’t decide if I want my room yellow or not. I love yellow and pink together. Now I know. Thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel
