October is the time for ghosties and goblins. Fall landscapes and shadows give flight to the imagination. Do you see things that aren’t there? I do.
The picture at left is the artist studio that I recently had the honor of working in. I have to admit that I sweat whenever I work with people who make their living from creative endeavors. I want them to have a really inspiring space to enjoy. This space had to do multi-duty as a studio, gallery, storage, relaxing, and entertaining space. It took us 4 days of organizing, but I am thrilled to say the client loves it. My greatest pleasure is that the client has her beautiful creations showcased for her visitors and for herself.
I not only see something that she didn’t see- how the space could look in just a few hours- but I also see the people that she will be gracing as she hosts parties and gatherings that she hasn’t been able to have in a while. So as you look at the photo below, try to see the admirers that are gazing at her striking art. If you can’t see the potential in your space, come attend a seminar or request a decorating consultation. The only thing spooky about what you don’t see is letting your home go under-utilized.
