...the studio!

(bird's-eye from the kitchen)

Baseboard molding and outlet plates are all that's left to do. Matt designed the walls and windows. I arranged things to keep my eyes awake and my heart warm. I can't wait to have visitors! So come in...



This sandy colored ikat print makes me feel like I'm on a safari:

A live jungle cat:


Found Brian Wildsmith's ABC's on the side of the road in Central Square:

Deadlines and starfish:


1950's French globe-turned-lamp from Bliss Farm Antiques, Rehoboth MA (thank you to lovely owner, Jackie) Also from Bliss, La Civilité (Puérile et Honnête) an antique picture book of manners for children, illustrated by M.B. De Monvel...she found these things on her yearly trips to the Paris flea markets! Lucky treasure and Christmas presents from Matt :



One of its interiors I would like to live in:

Out the window:


Things that are keeping my eyes awake:

Oops! There are some secret things hanging up...

Side ponytails, a mermaid:


Been surrounding myself in these colors the past few weeks...learning so much from their interaction, dreaming in them, playing with them: unlikely pinks, reds, crisp cherry, corals, golds, bright carrot. My mind's eye is working at full speed. Seeing new work ahead while I paint projects...Oh and this book about Maira is packed full of inspiration-cartwheels and wonder:



I'm so happy to have a place where my imagination can simmer and streeetttchhhhhhhhh out! Thanks for peeking!

Oh Julia, your studio is just lovely. The walls, with the little boxes of openness are genius. The globe and book are perfect. I am always hopeful that my found treasures will go to the perfect home and the globe and book surely found the perfect home.
