An Artist’s Sculpture Studio

Artist studio 0

One of my dreams is to have a studio. I love to paint, dabble in sculpture and of course, it would be wonderful to have a dedicated space for my interior design business.

Designer David Coote took a small garden shed and created the most amazing Artist’s Sculpture Studio and Retreat.

Though not very large in scale, it is enormous in charm and function. As you enter you can see a daybed to the right and straight on you can see the studio area. Notice the skylights and windows. There is literally light from almost every angle.

Here is a closer look at the studio. I love that the back wall is covered in old barn board and the floors are stunning!

A small pot belly stove keeps the studio toasty warm in the cooler months.

And there is even a small hot plate when you need to re-charge and have a bit of tea!

To the right is another bed in a bit of alcove. Notice the lovely window and beautiful open beamed ceiling

A close up shows old brackets and barn wood shelves for storing old casts and an antique wash tub to hold towels and cleaning supplies.

The alcove also has wonderful skylights. I expect the light floods this studio and changes all day creating the most interesting patterns.

There is even a wash basin and water to freshen up – so charming!!

Notice the old re-purposed closet doors which hide all the sculpture supplies.

And these doors swing open to let even more light and the lovely gardens in.
