If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen a few sneak peeks of some changes in the studio and now I am thrilled to share my new workspace.While Archer is still so little, I have been working more in the house and less in my studio, so I brought my primary computer and desk into the living room. This way, on the days I don’t have childcare I can fit some work in while he is napping and still be within earshot of his bedroom. The great thing about that is, I was able to set the studio up with photo lighting and a white nook, so I can shoot new products and add them to the new website (I swear it is coming SOON) much more easily.
However, on the days I do have childcare, we have someone come to our house to watch Arch, as working in the living room with that cute face bouncing around next me isn’t the greatest for productivity. Cut to… me making a new smaller workspace in the studio so I can still have the photo set up, but also have a place to work on my laptop. While I was switching things around, Behr invited me to try out their MARQUEE Interior Paint & Primer and I jumped at the excuse to give the studio a new look. I love how painting a new color can change the feel of a room SO much. By adding a big graphic stripe on the wall, I’ve set the stage for a graphic inspiration board and while I really loved the peachy pink floors, this jade color (“dark jade” to be exact) is another favorite.For the walls, I painted a bold accent stripe in “limousine leather“, giving me a light and bright space with just a touch of black… the best of both worlds.
What I love about having painted floors is that you can easily change up the color in one afternoon and match your current color obsession. I picked the “dark jade” for the floor after returning from a bright green Michigan to a very brown LA, and was looking to bring a bit of that green back into my life. Since it was going on the floor, I used BEHR PREMIUM Porch & Patio Floor Paint but had them mix it to match the MARQUEE color.I went for a slim plexi desk (actually a console table turned desk) so it wouldn’t compete with the bold paint colors and stripe treatment, or take up too much space. Also, how about those copper chairs (insert heart eyed emoticon here) and that beauty of a vintage rug?! OH, and if you look closely, there is also a little sneak peek of the new website I have been working on. I am counting down the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until I can get all the content finished, posts migrated, and get back to posting regularly. Until then, I hope you enjoy the updated studio as much as I do and hope it inspires you to try something new with color.

How’d you come up with the graphic dark stripe? It’s genius! Opposites make a space.

This is totally my dream room! The green floors are amazing.
Absolutely love the floor! Never thought about painting the floor, great idea! And such a rich color. Stunning!

Gorgeous Sarah! Totally obsessing over those floors!!!
Love your style girl! The floor color is amazing 🙂
Hi! I came here searching to see if there was any sort of update about how the white painted floors held up, as I’m considering painting the tile floors in my new house, and I was wondering, how did the white paint hold up after 2-ish years before you decided to paint them again? Don’t get me wrong, I love the new color, but just curious about how the painted tile floors hold up in general?
