Updates Around the Studio

During the last handful of months, we’ve spent time piecing together some of the ever-evolving rooms in the house – the rooms that are done, but not really done. They need something here or there, but it’s not a rush, and so, we move slow. Very slow.  Our funny little nook has acted as our One Tail staging room […]

A Very Green Studio Installation

Over the weekend, we installed a very green (and sort of purple) wall of plants to the studio! Scott has been convincing me for years that a “living wall” would be a fun addition to our home, and while I’ve always loved the look, we were short on space in our small condo. This house […]

A Hometown Desk Makeover (v.2)

You deserved it!), and as is typical upon returning home, it’s been tough getting back into the swing of things. Chicago is finally feeling warm – it took long enough! – but the trees […]

The studio workroom is done! The very first, very, very done room in this whole house. Let’s go! This small room was a former bedroom of the […]
