Inside Vickie’s Home Studio
I love seeing people’s workspaces. You can learn a lot about the way people create by getting a glimpse into where they do so. Franky, up until now, my space was mostly a hot mess. The time and effort hadn’t been made to create the light, open, and relatively organized home studio that I’ve always wanted. I think in the back of my mind I was holding out for a huge, warehouse space that made both geographic in fiscal sense for my life and business. You know the kind — with loads of natural light, exposed brick and overlooking the city, but was also close enough to walk to? (Note, I live in Texas. Most things aren’t close enough to walk to.) Alas, though handmade home is where the heart is, and thusly so is my workspace. Recently, we gave the room I use for an office a makeover including ditching carpet in favor of Pergo floors, bright white paint in lieu of dark teal (which is a color I love, but not so great for shooting photo and video around), and bringing in as much shelving as could fit in the space. The result: a great compromise. A cool space that looks a like a small, New York City apartment, but in the comfort of my own home located on 1.5 acres of land in Austin. Watch the video above for a peek, then head on over to Facebook to post a picture of your creative space — I’d love to see it!
