Home Styles: The Artist’s Studio

May 6, 2012

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

This week, guest writer Gabriella Cetrulo curates selections for creative workspaces.

Be it be writer, designer, photographer, or painter, workspaces are central to the creative process. The right light, space, and tools have the ability to impact the outcome of any project.

One aspect of creative workspaces that is sometimes overlooked is its aesthetic connection to an artist’s personal style. A visually stimulating workspace can inspire and keep an artist in the right frame of mind. With that as a guideline, I decided to find items for four timeless workspaces, inspired by the old world painters and photographers that still influence me today.

    No matter how large a work area you occupy, it is the feel of the environment that makes work not only possible, but creative. So in spite of having lots of space to create, I bring my work upstairs and sit in a sunny window, or work outside where my brain can breathe and I can infuse my work with the ease that nature brings.

    as an "artist", i have always had a space for working out my creative ideas - sometimes large spaces, sometimes (like right now) very small. i do feel that it is always good to have a place to spread out and CREATE - it definitely stimulates the artistic process and gives you somewhere to leave your sketches!

    I love the point of the article, which I take as meaning surround yourself with things you love. I love my studio and it is always fun to add new things. I love working in it and it really does enhance my creativity. Thanks for the article!

    Well done.

  • BridalSashesOnly

    Kathy Johnson from BridalSashesOnly said 9 years ago

    I agree, a designers workspace must envelope the bits and pieces that come together in the finished product, a work of art!

    Ahhh... creativity - the best therapy for a rainy day!

  • kathyjohnson3

  • ACESfinds

    Alison Herr Scates and Chuck Scates from ACESFINDSVINTAGE said 9 years ago

    Lovely! As a vintage seller, my studio is constantly with rotating vintage finds. I feel like a kid playing with toys arranging items on my desk, tables, and shelves, and that gets my creativity and motivation flowing. Great post!

  • DecadesOfVintage

    DecadesOfVintage from DecadesOfVintage said 9 years ago

    I agree that to be indicative of the owner of a corner of the world a workspace should be dynamic.

  • breadandroses2

    breadandroses2 from breadandroses2 said 9 years ago

    I agree: the aesthetic of a workplace is key.

  • gardenmis

    Priscilla from Gardenmis said 9 years ago

    Love your choices! I love my little sewing studio but hope to someday have a bigger one that allows a few more machines, a dress form and lots more fabric! Of course to have it let out to my herb garden would be even better. Thanks for the lovely article. :)

  • jadedgoats

    Judy Wright from JudithGayleDesigns said 9 years ago

    No lifeless cubicle for the artist/craftsman! Our lives defy corporate identity, and our workspaces prove it! Thanks for the great post!

  • WeeBindery

    WeeBindery from WeeBindery said 9 years ago

    Your statement is so true about workspaces! I love your finds! My workspace is a collection of countless antiques (1860 book press, my grandmother's 1920 sewing machine) vintage heirlooms and finds, fabric, paper and the list goes on! It's like stepping into another world!

  • TheIDconnection

    TheIDConnection from TheIDconnection said 9 years ago

    I want every single thing in this article! I have a tiny studio that has to do double duty as an office. Got some great ideas for streamlining my space.

  • kgpaintings

    Kirsten Gilmore from PaintingsByKEGilmore said 9 years ago

    The desk for the writer's studio is beautiful. Great picks! The only things I would add to the artist's studio would be a window with north light streaming in, and a vase full of fresh-cut flowers in front of it for a still life. :) I went to the farmer's market yesterday and came home with fresh peonies: the scent, the colors, the gradually opening petals, all of it helps transform my studio into a place where ideas flow and art happens.

  • faeriejane

    Valerie said 9 years ago

    what a seriously delightful mix-and-match. BUT i've found that as a chronic perfectionist it's easier to write when i set the bar low for myself, and fly under the radar of my expectations. i'm not sure, then, that I could write with those beautiful, but daunting EPIC bookends looming over me...

  • Made2Impress

  • TwistedTinkers

  • wonderboom

    wonderboom from wonderboom said 9 years ago

    What a delightful post... Although The Artist's collection neglected the empty bottles of wine, from the previous night's revelry. The Photographer: gloves to hide the silver nitrate stained fingertips & The Designer a scented eye pillow to combat headache's from tiny stitches !

  • Namaz

  • SDesq

  • HuzzahHandmade

    Kathryn Luciana from HuzzahHandmade said 9 years ago

    Perhaps the photographer wants a heat lamp to: expose his/her paper therefore rendering in useless, or maybe they want to expose their negatives to excess heat, therefore ruining them, or maybe they want it outside their darkroom to warm their feet. What a load of crap.

  • sinbadssister

    jennifer from sinbadssister said 9 years ago

    Kathryn, that's a bit cruel. I see the selection of objects as someone's harmless fantasy. OK, we may not need any of them, but isn't a lot of Etsy about window dressing and daydreaming?

  • leslieholz

    Leslie Holz from leslieholz said 9 years ago

  • paisleybeading

    LuAnn Poli from PaisleyBeading said 9 years ago

    Just love this piece, Gabriella! I so agree. A workspace or studio makes all the difference in the world for inspiring creativity. Having amazing things to gaze upon can help to pull you out of a slump. Colors, moods, styles, & attitudes of items in your space all effect the outcome of a design. Great selections you've featured here. Thanks for a great post!

  • MaejeanVINTAGE

  • MullaneInk

    Molly Shannon from MullaneInk said 9 years ago

    I love this article... the idea of a work space has become very important to me since I now live in a small apartment. I have to make my workspace moveable and adapt to any situation... which is a struggle but well worth it when I see the finished products.

  • PippiHepburn

    Lisa Best from PippiHepburn said 9 years ago

    I just moved into a workspace outside of my home. I have created totally different work and doing more. I am sure it is because I now work in a room with big windows on the top floor and see clouds and sky all day, yay! I also worked hard when I sewed in our tiny NYC studio apt with my husband his builder tools and supplies, a TV, computer and 3 cats. Then worked hard when we bought a home and I got a workroom. It does not matter if you are inspired to work, just keep working and you will advance in all ways! Thanks for the article!

  • earthlycreature

    Cindy Cantelon from EarthlyCreature said 9 years ago

    Studios, workshops, and kitchens my favorite spaces in the world. (not that I'm well traveled). I love visiting the spaces of other artists as well. The place where the creative muse takes hold and becomes real. Thank-you for story

  • cherylwasilowart

    Cheryl from cherylwasilowart said 9 years ago

    I chose the best bedroom in my house to make a studio. It's got a bump out with lots of windows and has the greatest light coming in. I'ts my favorite room which I have trashed completely by hanging tons of canvases all over the walls and push pinning artwork too. I have covered the floors with several canvases only to drip water and paint through to the floor anyway. My doors and closets have paint splatters and so do the walls. Ha ha ha and I love it anyway! It's my studio and I don't really care about any of that. It's a comforting place for me to be and it's my sanctuary!

  • TaylorArts

    Christine and Marc from TaylorArts said 9 years ago

    So true that you should surround yourself with stuff you love to add to the creative process. These picks rock. The only thing I'd add is that you should just go for it whether you've got the cool stuff and the cool space or not. So many people think they have to have everything perfect before they begin and so they never begin at all. Do what you love and the rest will follow...

  • VintageChinchilla

    Emily Jones from VintageChinchilla said 9 years ago

    That jello mold pin cushion is crazy ingenious, I might just have a use for the 20 of them sitting in my cupboard just yet!!

  • BizzieLizzie

    Bizzie from BizzieLizzieHandmade said 9 years ago

    I would be SO lost without my tools and my own workspace! I love being able to just hide out in my sewing room and let the creative juices flow. I have drawings from Lizzie all over my walls, family pictures and inspirational mementos to remind me just how lucky I am to be able to work from home amongst all that I love!

  • gilstrapdesigns

    Debra Gilstrap from gilstrapdesigns said 9 years ago

    This is very true the work space that we create for ourselves is very important. I try to keep the things that inspire me in my work space even though for right now it is the dinning room and once I get my own little studio I have a lot more things that inspire me to put in it.

  • flintandspark

    Amy from flintandspark said 9 years ago

    Great finds! I love when featured sellers have photos of their home studios - they're always so inspirational and fun to see.

  • thevicagirl

    VaLon Frandsen from thevicagirl said 9 years ago

    Spaces are truly what keeps you going. It is too bad that most of the things that are in this post are items to put in you space and don't have a lot to do with the space itself. Good natural light, nice colors, and plenty of inspirational simplicty are keys to having a great space.

  • floralnouveau

    Andrea Gillett from floralnouveau said 9 years ago

    It's amazing how creativity has a tendency to be very messy! I have the best intentions of keeping my "stuff" contained when beginning a design. But as my imagination takes hold, I start pulling out all sorts of flowers, fabrics, ribbons, brooches and shiny objects that inspire my creation. Then before I know it, I've made one heck of a mess! Some of you may find yourself doing the same thing. I think it's all part of the creative process. My place loften ooks trashed - but I wouldn't have it any other way! Be inspired, wherever your creative home may be!

  • LittleWrenPottery

    Victoria Baker from LittleWrenPottery said 9 years ago

    Beautiful the halo to wear print has to be my favorite, she has just a lovely haunting look to her!

  • PattiTrostle

    Patti Trostle from PattiTrostle said 9 years ago

    I can really relate to this. When I go to my studio I know it will have everything I need to do my work. The large windows with natural light is one of the most important things for me.

  • CynsibleCreations

    Cyn from CynsibleCreations said 9 years ago

    My favorite things have grown into my workspace. It has taken years. Its is my feel good place.

  • Originalsbydenise

    Denise Busch - Conradsen from Originalsbydenise said 9 years ago

    My work space started with a small roll top desk that a friend gave me, I moved it by the window and added a shelf unit next to it. It keeps expanding with folding tables, soon I will take over the entire living room. But, I love that I can take my craft with me to the beach , park .... I will spend days designing and soon I will have little bags of wire strung with beads ready to go.

  • dylangrey

    Tony Oliver from dylangrey said 9 years ago

    It is an honor to be included in this fine article and awesome collection! My desk is a place where I know I will find important things; laptop, large-font quotes, staging props, Seth Godin books and heavy, beautiful design books, an assortment of beverages, tools and a spiral-bound notebook for capturing every thought I do not want to lose. It is frequently messy but inspiring to me. That's why I designed The Reclaimed Pine Table for simplicity and durability.

  • tlclifford47

    Tracy Clifford from TheBarkingDogArtStud said 9 years ago

    I love reading about others and their studios. My wonderful husband of 45 years built me a studio and it is finally finished. He closed in 16 feet of our porch and glassed in 3 sides of it. Can you imagine floor to ceiling windows!! that face the south. Oh what light I have to work with whether I am painting or quilting. It is awesome.

  • poplovedesigns

    Andrea Hughes from PopLoveHers said 9 years ago

    Lovely curation, I would love to have that dress form in our studio! I guess we'll have to do with our Styrofoam modernized version. Not to mention a few of those other goodies! Our studio is a little bit of a combination designer, photographer, artist!

  • iloveludwig

    Astrid R. from AnAstridEndeavor said 9 years ago

    One of my favorite things is to visit and see inside the workspace of artists. It's fascinating how each individual's style and approach is reflected in how and where they work. Not only that- how the end product comes to fruition- amazing and so interesting. If I could be a fly on the wall- that would be the best!!
