Ive lived here almost a year. We left our extended New England style Cape last year because we need to spread out and have space, especially from being onto of each other all the time. Charming and cute isnt so appealing when your constantly bumping into each other. I love tiny homes, but it was time to move on. We have almost three times the space here, in own new home. And closets. SO many closets.
Im finally fitting into the natural rhythm of our home and lifestyle. We started all these rooms labels and furnished with its own purpose. Very practical. Flash ahead to real life, real living.
We are finding my photography studio works best as a dual office where my little guy can hang out beside me and mine craft. We have discovered that all the rooms were reversed for their original purpose. The long of the short.... Everything is being used all wrong and it was very hard flipping and flopping and changing furniture around to suit all those changes as they popped up.
But we are here. Checked in at 'comfort, not so perfect' place.
With all that said; I Think my studio has reached the point of it's final setup. So I thought I would share just a few pics of how I mix work with home and kids. There is a cozy corner for the kids to cuddle up with a book or tablet and a new longer office desk for an extra computer for the kids to play and gab up a storm to me.
They didn't like me in my own spaces. They wanted the opportunity to be comfortably right next to me. Funny, I wanted more space to 'spread out', but my kids (sometimes) still need and want to be close by me. Thats a wonderful joy!
Antique Italian carved corner chair, sheep fur and blanket - the perfect cuddle spot.
Clothes to be photographer are all protected and covered on a salesman rack.
Wall Paper by Rebecca Rebouche, Anthropolgie, and the rest are all Vintage: canvas linens, fabric paper, and reflective rolls. Rebecca is in 3 of our rooms, because she reminds me to release my inner whimsy and childish joy.

And at night when Im working late, I have this antique glass globe I placed on a baby blue lamp base. I love it, but my older son calls it the "creepy baby face lamp." LOL!
This wonderful movie lamp form the 50s throws off so much light! A darling friend recently gave it to me, it makes me think of her goodness and sweetness whenever I pass it by.
