The Day’s Design Flower Studio :: The Inspiration

I’m probably a little premature on this post.  Perhaps it’s a little bit of a dream yet to think that I might actually have a completed studio space in the near future.  But my new flooring came in, so right now I’m going to live on a hopeful note.

I don’t have it all figured out quite yet, other than to say I have a space.  The loosely outlined plans are to turn my bland basement into a working studio area.  Flowers seem to take over my home, and for once, I would like to prep for a wedding and keep the mess contained to somewhere besides my kitchen.

In my imaginative mind, out basement is sort of shaped like an “S”.   it’s a walkout basement, so there’s an entrance off the garage and also a couple of windows which provide some extra light.  Now imagine dividing that “S” in half – one side (the half with the entrance) will be a sitting area.  I have an antique sofa to reupholster and I’m looking for some other beautiful yet functional pieces to fill the space.  The other half, which I like to refer to as the back half of the basement or the bottom of the “S”, will be my flowering area.

Some items for my shopping list there – an old wooden work bench or possibly kitchen island as my main prepping and designing space, shelving shelving and more shelving for storing containers, wheeled carts/shelves for completed centerpieces and a few miscellaneous pieces of furniture for storage and additional counter height creating area.

My timeline for this project is still very much unknown.  For anyone who’s ever remodeled a room or house, you know that things just never go as planned.  Everything takes twice the expected amount of time.  And if you’ve read my blog for any amount of time then you really know how drawn out my projects always are.  Throwing two little girls into the hustle with a husband who’s in the height of his busy season is just a recipe for chaos.  I’m not even going to pretend that I have a deadline in reachable sight. But my special order flooring has arrived, so that’s a step in the right direction.

I’ll leave you with just a little glimpse of the inspiration behind my space.  Again, this is a really loose interpretation, but it’s at least getting me headed in a direction.
