Wow! We're almost finished rebuilding the studio!
This looks a little messy, as it's still very much a construction site and has not been all prettied up. I'll do before and after session once we are truly "after"!
The ceilings are whitewashed exposed rafters.
The floors are just 3/4 inch ply wood...simple and inexpensive, and not good one side and in need of paint....
My (almost) last job was to paint the studio floor, and I chose this Robins Egg Blue. It just seemed like the right colour, but now I'm not so sure.
It is much more light, and has a delicate, seaside feel....
I've always veered away from blue in the home, as it can make it feel so cool....and warmth is very important to us after years of living in a cold house and chopping lots of firewood! But one of my sons asked why we never have anything blue, and that got me thinking....And I imagined a warm turquoise floor, with grass green, white and coral orange patterns painted on the surface- just a little...a few swirls and flowers....just because.
So now we have the blue base....and I'm having trouble getting used to it (it's been all of 12 hours since I finished painting!)....It feels a bit like a swimming pool. At least half of the wall space will be covered with colourful rainbows of wool. Do I try it out for a while? Do I paint on my surface designs and add all the finishing trim and furniture that will make half the floor space dissappear? Will the blue make it harder to photograph items well in the studio? Will it reflect up on the white walls and make things look dull, and always a little blue? I don't know? What do you think?
I need to have the floor finished by tomorrow so I can start moving in....So I'm going to take a break from studio colours for a few hours and immerse myself in colours of another sort- dyeing piles of yarns and rovings...and then make the decision!
