My friend Jordan and I are joining forces and taking over this 20 by 80 foot basement space. A his and hers studio of sorts, it will be our dual office — serving as part music studio/rehearsal space and part photo studio.

We're starting our decorating and furnishing adventure first thing come February, and one question remains... what color do we paint the walls? Personally, we both like Tiffany Blue.

As you can see, the space is underground with no windows and raw concrete floors. We're going to light the room with floor lamps and fill it with all our awesome guitars and cameras. Both desks will probably sit facing the room, looking out from that back wall. The color of that wall is probably the most important, right? Even if we don't paint the entire room, I have a few ideas for color choices. Any suggestions?

Also, I really loved these various spaces in Tiffany Blue. They all feel light, airy and very happy.

1. The dining room of Kristen James + Mike Dunn is amazing; not only did they nail the perfect Tiffany teal blue, but their mid-century modern decor really pulls the room together.

2. The author of Color Me Happy blogs daily about her inspirations. One of her most recent projects involved reclaiming her office and turning it into a functional yet highly stylish workspace.

3. Kristen and Mike's kitchen is incredible, done in dark woods and shiny steal appliances. I love that they've carried the Tiffany teal blue in accent pieces around the house, like in the kitchen!

4. I found this cute vignette of a yellow chair that pops so nicely against a textured wall on Inspiration For the Home.

The most important thing, for me personally, is that the space represents both of us. Jordan leans more toward modern, minimalistic and I lean toward vintage, eclectic. Help us with your ideas :)
