Nothing changes how a room feels quite as easily as paint. That was certainly the case for me moving into my last studio in Northeast Minneapolis
The paint from the night before had dried and had some time to mellow out. Walking into my art studio, and I couldn’t be happier with my paint color selections!
I selected a couple of Pratt and Lambert wall colors, Putty, and Sierra Night. They are set off against a couple of white columns that had already painted 100 before I moved in. My freshly painted walls look great against all the different tones of wood in the space — 3 different, mismatched browns on the trim and doors and a natural maple on the floors.
As I moved into the new studio space, I was intrigued by some of the architectural oddities of working in an old warehouse-type build. Pipes & wires, transom windows, and wall-mounted conduits that run to who-knows-where — I don’t know that these things serve much of a purpose any longer, but I appreciate all of the details and the visual texture that they add to my new studio space.
