You may have seen my pastel miami vibes studio goals tour video yesterday, but in light of my new enthusiasm for focusing more on my blog, I wanted to share all the photos and further info that go along with the video.
It is has been my goal to have my own studio for as long as I can remember, and even more so since I’ve been self employed. I’ve worked from home for seven years and whilst I love having the freedom to still work from the sofa if I want (cough, Monday mornings when it’s raining!!) having a new studio space has just allowed me to evolve so much as a creative.
Everything work related had started to take over our house, I had filming equipment in our bedroom, office space in the dining room and no matter how hard I tried our house just wasn’t big enough to style a creative space. I felt cooped up and needed to spread my wings to allow my creativity to flourish. I’d had a bit of a browse on what other creative studio space was available in Bristol but everything seem to be out of budget or shared desk space.
I found my studio via Meanwhile Creative, my friend has a unit in the same building, using hers as storage whilst they travel the festivals in their van throughout the summer. When I found this space, I was so excited. It seemed so perfect for me and in the excitement I had conjured up ideas of how I wanted to style the space before I’d even signed on the dotted line. I pestered Meanwhile Creative and couldn’t wait to move in. You can watch the vlogs if you want to see what it was like when I first moved in.
It’s taken a few months to finally get it properly sorted. I discovered when I moved in that filming was more difficult than I’d imagined on account of other people working quite frequently. I threw my toys out the pram and decided it wouldn’t work and that I’d made a bad decision and had failed and really couldn’t see past my strop. However, I’ve persevered and have managed to have some really productive days in the studio now. It’s not perfect but I’ve been working with the rest of the units to figure out the best and quietest days to try and film.
I need a creative and colourful space to feel at my most productive, and styling rooms up is a real passion of mine. The studio has very much been done on a budget with little money spent on storage. With just a lick of paint here and there and some carefully curated decor items I’ve created my perfect pastel miami vibes studio. This is where all the magic happens!
