Before & After: An Artist's Home Studio

Before & After: An Artist's Home Studio

You may remember Jenn Ski's Not So Unhappy Hipster Home tour from a couple of years ago. Included in that tour were two photos of her freshly painted home studio. Fast forward to the present and she has completed her vision for the space, which includes a lot more than just fresh paint!

For starters, Jenn removed the white wood paneling throughout, plastered over the concrete walls, painted, added new shades, and better utilized the height of her ceilings by adding two walls of built-in storage.

In her design (that was executed by Alosso) she included two rows of deep drawers, 23 cabinets in various heights, a floating desk that extends along two walls, and square cubicles so that her rolled paper, Epson printer, bulk shipping supplies, paint, and fabric all have a home. The cabinet wall opposite the window has frosted glass panels that mimic the glass panes above them and, as an amazing final touch, she added above cabinet 'uplighting' which helps keep the space light and bright.

She installed the three floating white shelves herself and displays a rotating collection of her artwork, along with a few of her favorite mid-century collectables. Jenn is still considering a few finishing touches like door pulls and trim, but all and all, her home studio is a wrap.

Congratulations, and amazing job Jenn!
