This year’s kit is the Serendipity Shed. I’m so happy it is on the smaller side, help ease me back into larger projects. It would make an adorable floral shop, farm stand, or bakery. However I see something a little different.
Big open windows providing lots of natural light.
Every surface littered with tools and supplies.
And walls adorned with inspiration.
If you haven’t guessed yet, I’m planning on making an artist’s studio. More specifically an artist’s studio in France during the early 1900’s. I’m seeing beautiful architecture that has been neglected during the frenzy of creation.
A look inside an artist’s studio is undoubtedly a view into the artist’s mind. A place of creation and personal haven, the studio, like a diary, is full of an artist’s personal baggage… It is a place where one’s greatest artistic triumphs sit beside one’s greatest failures, finished pieces among works in progress, where piles of books, clippings, and other specimens of inspiration or just general interest collide, to form great ideas and eventually great works of art. It is both a place of joy and disappointment; inspiration and frustration. But most of all it is a necessary place in which an artist may grow. –
To do this I’ll need to raise the roof some and flatten it out (not a fan of the slant). I’m planning herringbone wood floors, enlarging the windows, and adding transom windows over the French doors. I’ve yet to decide if I want this to be set in a garden or in some way as part of a larger building. I think once I get it I’ll be able to picture it more clearly. Until then I’ll keep keeping on with my little pumpkin project.
