Friday Fun: Studios for Non-Artists

Why should artist always get the best rooms in the house, while writers are relegated to poky little holes beneath the stairs? I’m reclaiming some of these studios for myself!

The repurposed landing – clearly made for reading and writing. From Country Living.
Vertigo-inducing neatness, from IT Paper Blog.
A sea view is always welcome, from La Maison Boheme.
Comparatively modest and easy to repurpose as a writer’s study, from Living with Pattern.
The extravagant and spacious, from Pinterest.

  1. I agree with the above comment. While large spacious rooms with windows facing north are ideal for an artist, if my studio had a view of the sea I would probably spend the entire day sipping wine and watching the tide advance and recede.

    1. You know, I’ve been meaning to ask you about that: why northern light? My parents’ flat faced north and it was very dark for most of the year (plus hell to try and keep warm). Is that so the light remains constant when you are painting?

  2. The penthouse, or the sea, or the spacious one with the windows please! I think readers should definitely have studios (though I craft occasionally, so I could probably justify it anyway….)

  3. Oh, these are all so lovely, Marina Sofia! I’m especially drawn to the re-purposed landing – it’s bewitching!

  4. As everyone and their mother is going to be camped in the sea-view room trying to write (or is that, drink white wine?) I’m going to be in the room with the Matisse print! All those books and journals, my kind of space.

    1. Yes, that has proved rather popular this week, hasn’t it? I used to have a Matisse print like that at university – part of the coming of age ritual, I’d have thought…

  5. I want light, space, air and wooden floors, desk, bookcases. And NO clutter. And nice windows, but not direct sunlight — too hot.
