Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine had an issue on home studios - it looks
like you can still order it if you are looking for inspiration. There
were people that had professionally done studios, and some stuck in a
corner in a bedroom.
I tried to set up a room after our second son left... but we have thrown
everything into the room... and that is where our youngest throws his
lacrosse sticks, pads and helmets. I would say our whole house is a
studio - our two older sons were in a visual arts magnet - and
architecture and art majors in college - you should see what the dining
room table looks like.

I'm pretty much moved back in to the house we gutted and remodeled. My
studio right now is the "catch all" until we get the countertops made
and I sew the livingroom drapes.
I need to be able to paint, make woodcut prints, bead, mosaic, mat and
frame, as well as pack and ship, etc. I'm trying to keep all
"schoolness" out of it. This will be a "school free" space (unless I
decide to do NCBT)
So I'm asking those of you who have home studios - what is your FAVORITE
thing about it? Takach presses, napping Golden Retrievers and fabulous
views don't count!
