i'm so excited to share the install, and dramatic transformation, of mark's new music studio. mark, my fiancé, recently asked me to make over a space inside his dental practice. if you want a refresher, or you missed the details, you can read about that here.
mark really wanted the room to be dual-purpose, it had to function as a music studio but also serve as a private consultation room for patients. the room was on the smaller side, it was no longer usable as an exam room, so i chose streamlined pieces to make the most functional use of the space.
to begin, i needed a jumping off point, and this piece of art was just the thing...
mark really wanted some 'cool' elements and suggested a lava lamp. hmm...okay, but i bet i can find a more modern interpretation. let me introduce you to these beauties by jonathan adler...
i wanted the space to be dark and moody with an edge, so i painted the walls sherwin williams 'anonymous' and found these great industrial overhead fixtures. our contractor installed these on a dimmer switch to give the most control over all those bulbs!
to temper the dark walls, i chose a pale blue velvet chesterfield sofa where mark can play his guitar comfortably. let's face it, sometimes the creative process of making music can take a long time. two vintage brno chairs easily fit along the shallow desk and allow lots of multi-tasking in the space.
take a look at where this room started...
and see how it looks now...
i can't tell you how much i love how this room turned out, and mark loves it too! a big thanks to mauldin construction for excellent work as always. i look forward to more jobs with garrett and wes, and of course mark too!
design swell. live well.
design is a way of life.
