Inspire Me Thursday - Fun & Games


Hola!
With many projects going on at once - forcing me to multi-task; I wasn't able to participate with IMT for a little while. So I'm really glad to be back to participate with this week's topic - Fun and Games.
So this is actually my idea of fun. Part of the reason for creating this art is that I am manifesting my little dream cottage studio for a cottage industrialist. Lots of fun and games will be going on inside this dream studio. I am having fun choosing the colors for the outside sample - imagine what the inside will look like! For my sample I chose shades of lime, chartreuse, cream, sky blue and purple.
Truth be told I really am keeping my eyes open for a craftsman home with all the details I drew; so that I can do a complete reno and paint it funky colors. Now in some parts of Raleigh I think the preservation committee would have a wee problem with my color palette. So I'd have to go with a more subdued traditional color on the outside and express my creative side on the inside.
So much fun.
Enjoy.
Lise

What will you name this magic studio cottage? I want to meander up the stone path and find out what's inside!

Lise, this is charming! It reminds me of how I used to collect photos of my dream house, along with all the wonderful home accessories I would have.

Good question about the name of the studio Royce. I'm not sure just yet; I'll have to think about it some more. I do know that I am inspired by the colors of your neck of the woods (Key West). So maybe something having to do with that part of the world...

As for the inside, I am picturing one long wall covered with painted cork. It's the inspiration wall.

It's like expanding the concept of posting art on the fridge. Creative projects and bits of ephemera may find a place on the wall.

Friends will visit and leave their artwork - it will be like a big guest book that encourages creativity.

Too cute. I particularly like that it's a bit crooked and playful looking. It makes it belong even more in a fun fantasy world of play.
