I managed to take over one side of a small bedroom and the entire closet. Could not live without the flat file from Danica House. Really dating myself with that one. Can't have too much white laminated plywood or too many Ikea white cubbies. A small light table is propped up, plugged in and ready to go.
The Extreme Tree House show is giving me ideas and my husband high blood pressure!  ;) We do have a large backyard.....

I love your wooden cubbies! And great worksurface. Your little cameleon is cute hanging out on the corner!  :D

I have been obsessed with the Extreme Treehouse show, too! I've always wanted to get one of those large sheds and convert it to a studio!

Love your space!

Is the 'flat file' the really wide drawers? They're awesome! Is Danica House a Danish furniture store?

oooh i love looking at others workstation arrangements.  in my former life, i designed high end office furniture for Herman Miller...so offices are my thing.
i wish i had a nice clean simple white parsons table desk with neatly appointed accessories.  alas, i have 2 raccoons, uhm, i mean small children that would love nothing less than to explore and then destroy said work area.  so for now i have to keep my work area hidden and put away when not in use at all times.  et voila...my "studio".
it's all i need right now.  the drawer hold my paper and books.  the orange box on top stores my daily practice sheets.

Beautiful! So clean and stylish, with the acrylic chair. And I LOVE your molding and windows! Are you in the US? I'm in the southwestern US - most of what's around here was built after 1950 -- lots of mid-century modern, but I like the style of your house much better. And what a cool job you had!

oh thank you! i'm in the far north suburbs of chicago and the house was built in 1927.  it's a beauty.  parts of the house have been updated, and addition was put on about 10 years ago, and some parts have not changed at all.  and sadly we will be moving in a few months.  bittersweet for sure.  so packing will soon be cutting into my copperplate time!

Here's where I work.  There's a lot of natural light that comes in through four large windows.  It's small and I love it.
