We’re all moved in. Soul Shine Studio is, like, a real thing. I share it with three amazing artists (Flora
, + Lynx). We make art here. We write here. Gather here. Teach here. Lounge here. Eat here. Play here. Work our asses off here. I can hardly believe it. We even got ourselves a real deal logo with a tag line and everything:
Soul Shine Studio: Awakening Creativity, Igniting Community, Radiating Possibility
We are so excited to have a space that blends together all of our art, and our collective vision for what we want to create here. We had our open house a few weeks ago. It was crazy good and it felt wonderful to open our doors to the blessings of new beginnings.
For those of you who couldn’t make it to the open house, I wanted to give you a tour of our space. Welcome to our home away from home!
The space is sort of broken up in thirds. Here’s the lounge/living room area:
I love how this space blends all of us together: Flora’s beautiful painting above the green couch and her Balinese umbrella. Pixie’s gorgeous painting and art above the yellow daybed. Lynx’s incredible hanging installation, her meaningful alter that she built with the mantel, her Turkish rugs mixed with my rugs. My art on either side of the mantel….we really wanted the space to hold all of us. And I think it does, beautifully.
Here’s our entry way:
We converted an old column into a coat/bag holder. How cute is that? Also loving the chalkboard door (Lynx’s sweet son arted it up for us)
Our “kitchen” space:
And the view to the other side of the space:
This is the creative space where art gets made. Looks quite tidy in this photo as we spruced it up for the open house, but normally not so pretty 🙂
The rolling carts (blue and grey) are from Ikea and worth every penny. Love those things.
Also really happy with this awesome tiered rounder. It’s large, super functional, holds a million supplies and looks perfectly industrial in our big space. LOVE. It’s from Create-ologie.
Loving this little corner. Paintbrush chandelier. Check. Vintage wallpaper and basket. Check. Old screened door (found on the side of the road!). Check. Cute rolling carts. Check.
This particular three-tiered rolling cart also came from Create-ologie (no longer in business). Perfectly industrial, perfectly functional, and perfectly amazing for holding gobs and gobs of paint. It was important for us to create a space where we could move pieces of furniture around pretty easily to accommodate all the ways in which we’ll use the space (workshops! gatherings! art making!), so the more rolling pieces, the better.
Loving our wall of bookshelves and sewing table. Lots of storage underneath the tables, too.
Every studio needs a tutu’d stool, right?
Table lamp + basket = floor lamp. How cute is that? Also, Lynx’s curtain is probably my favorite thing in the entire space. Love it so.
Love the tiered display piece? It’s a part of my home decor line and is available here
My dad built us each a desk made from old reclaimed wood. It’s hard to tell in this shot but we each have our own little computer station.
Hope you enjoyed the tour, friends. Lots of goodness will be happening here. Sign up for the newsletter
