If you click on the photo it should enlarge and there should be a caption. Lotta shoulds…
My studio is a smallish room upstairs behind the kitchen.
At first I thought I would sleep here, too. I did so for a couple of weeks. Then I decided that if I were to paint here that might not be a good idea due to the fumes.
Stairs to the studio. Behind the double doors is the laundry room.
Panning to the left. The door on the right leads to a nice 3/4 bath. to the right you can see the screened in porch at the back of the house.
Looking into the kitchen from the dining room. That door leads to a narrow inset porch. Things are stored there. Ladders, grills, and such.
The door leads to the dining/living room.
The walls are not really this bright. The painting is by Robert Gratiot. The doorway leads to the front stairway. And, of course, every two story house needs a door to the exterior from the stair well.
There used to be a fireplace over there. My sideboard would look great there if only it weren’t broken (my fault, poor packing of the POD).
The door on the left leads into the kitchen. Painting by me and a chair that is so ridiculously ornate I had to buy it.
The simplicity and graceful curves of the newel post are what sealed the deal for me.
Even the ceiling is papered in this area.
Top of the stairs. Someday sewing area.
On a whim bought a queen size mattress and moved into the bedroom. Sculpture by Audra McKay Webster. Luckily the windows are shuttered to the top as there is a very bright streetlight out there.
The only closets in this house are the laundry room and the water heater closet down stairs. And I still have lots of boxes to unpack.
Sewing area. Looking towards the absurd wast of space that is the upstairs bath. Turn to the right and you see…
This area…. a closet? It is totally open. But it is a large enough area that I can use it as an exercise room.
Upstairs bath. That window, looking toward the rear of the house where you can see the roof of the kitchen and the wall of the studio.
Two person shower and a large soaking tub. Totally wasted space. The wall that separates the bathroom from the ‘workout closet’ is 8 feet high but the ceiling is 10 feet high. So, in effect it’s an open room. Can you imagine showering or bathing in such a drafty place in the winter?
Unfortunately crooked photo of a very sweet room. Book cases on either side of the fireplace.
Front door. Notice it has a bell for ringing… broken.
