I've moved…a lot. So, when coming up with my ideal Studio with Style, I opted to find elements that would work in almost any one room space. Drawing inspiration from my favorite artist du jour, Mark Weaver, I went with a color palette and design sensibility that pays homage to MCM without trying to replicate the look in its entirety.
I'm not going to lie — I kind of love this look and will be saving this inspiration board for when I have an extra room to decorate. Here's a breakdown of the different pieces in my perfect studio (which of course has amazing closet space):
1 - EARTH Screenprint by Mark Weaver. This is unfortunately sold out, which I suppose saves me from having to go and re-outfit my whole living room today. The husband will be happy.
2 - Moving Light Sconce from Anthropologie. I absolutely love the industrial look of this lamp. Using wall sconces rather than floor or table lamps takes advantage of often underused wall space.
3 - Ventura Cocktail Table from Room and Board. This table is 54 inches long, long enough to serve as a "dining room table" when guests are over. And at 20 inches deep, it's not going to take up the whole floor.
4 - Grace Rug by Angela Adams from Design Within Reach. I've loved this rug from afar for a long time. It's a perfect tie in to the print as it reminds me of flying through space (you know, from the last time I went).
5 - Cable Yellow Throw from CB2. This mustard yellow throw provides a great pop of color and is also something great to snuggle up with on cold nights.
6 - Illusorio Cabinet from Anthropologie. Don't let this cabinet fool you. There are actually only 3 drawers on the left and the right side opens up to four shelves for storage of a variety of items.
7 - Storage Cube in Grass Cloth from West Elm. Two of these flanking the sofa could act as end tables, seating for guests and storage for pillows and blankets from my fold down couch.
8 - Flex Orange Sofa from CB2. This sofa folds down to a platform bed with real pocketed coil mattress innersprings. And it's covered in a retro inspired orange fabric to boot.
9 - Natural Steel Leaning Mirror from Room and Board. A leaning mirror will give the room the illusion of more space...plus a girl needs to be able to check her ensemble from head to toe before leaving the house.
