studio progress & seasonal flowers …

We are slowly getting settled into our new

“Bainbridge Island Studios”

. . . . .

Our Art Studio, which is right next door to my Design Studio

is finally getting it’s last coat of paint in my all time favorite true white color …

Benjamin Moore – “Super White”

It has always been my go-to white when I don’t want to see any traces of other colors.

I think it is the perfect color for this space as I want it to be all about the art …

and not necessarily about the space.

I am happy with the way the space is coming together

but there is still lots of work to be done!

We need to add an art sink, a clean up area, more storage cabinets,

and lots of shelving needs to be installed …

not to mention that the restroom which needs to be remodeled!

It seems like the list goes on and on …

So – until I can actually get in here and start playing around a bit with some art …

I have decided to bring in some beautiful seasonal flowers

to brighten up the space!

And flowers – well … they always make me HAPPY!!

I am especially loving all the cabbages and kales you can find this time of year!!

And – you don’t have to do a huge amount of planting to make them look good …

just stick them is a cool pot and you are good to go!!

The plants you see here came mostly from

“Thistle Floral and Home”

which is owned by my dear friend Shannon Castillo.
