One thing with a red is that it is bold. And while I love that fact it can sometimes overwhelm a room. So softening it is necessary. One of the first things I did was add a curtain to soften the contrast between the white window and the wall. I purpose fully made it a-symmetrical because I new I was going to have a desk on one side of the wall. I already had the black and white striped dresser that looks great against the color. I added a neutral chair and felt like the wall still needed something So I added some art work to finish it up. I added sewing / craft desk but funny enough this area tends to get more use for something else. But I’ll tell you more about that next week. =)
I know red isn’t a popular color for studios right now, if I were following trends it would be a pastel or a gray of some kind. But I love red. I feel like its an energizing color that stimulates creativity for me. I think when it comes to your creative space you should do what feels good for you, not what is trendy or popular at the moment. At the end of the day a studio is your space. It must be a reflection of you and not what the world says you should be.
