Art studio mood board

Quite a few years ago I helped my sister (the one who is the illustrator) with her studio and I blogged about it here.

So when Patricia van Essche, a very talented artist and illustrator and author of the wonderful PVE design blog asked me to help her out with her new art studio it took me about 2 seconds to say, "Yes!".  It turned out she didn't need all that much help really - mostly a little encouragement. She had a good idea of what she wanted; a lot of white (yes!), clean, sleek, and organized. Right up my alley. 

We worked over the phone and via emails and I compiled it all in these mood boards. You can read about the details on her post here

I can't wait to see her big reveal when everything is installed and complete ... It is coming along very well! 

If you are not familiar with Patricia's work, you will definitely want to check out her custom hand drawn illustrations on her blog or in her Etsy shop here. They are suburb - her subjects range from pets, to homes, your favorite vacation spot, and even your special event. She has done some wonderful logos and even a few blog headers. Her blog is filled with inspiring posts that reflect her positive outlook and desire to capture the beauty of everyday life.

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I am posting late as I just got back in town myself after a very fun weekend with my family.  :D

I recently came across Patricia's blog and it's so fun to see that you're working together. I love blog land! And I can't wait to see Patricia implement your plan. Heading over now to check out Patricia's post too.

Your mood board looks great! I am loving the light pendants, table, chairs, just the overall vibe.

I know when this studio is completed, it is going to be so modern and chic!

Looking forward to see the finished product.

Have a good day, Sherri!

If it were not for blog land, we would never have met and for that I am forever grateful for your help with organizing my thoughts for my studio.
Wishing you a wonderful week.

As soon as I started reading this post I thought of Patricia's new space...all white, cool floors...and then I read on that you were in on the design...it's really a small world isn't it? I love her blog and of course her work. Looking forward to seeing the finished studio on both of your blogs!

Hi, my friend!

I've been thinking so much about you lately! I'm so sorry I have "disappeared", my life is incredibly busy... I need you to tell me to slow down again..LOL remember? :-)

Anyways, I saw what you wrote at Marianne's ABC series. Thank you so much! By the way, I love you too! :-)

I love this space you created. But again, you already know I'm your fan #1!

Have a great day, my friend!
