Only a few months late...

All this time I've been itching to finally respond to Deborah's call to post studio pics. However, up until last week, my upstairs domain was replete with cracks, water stains, hideous curtains, filth, and loathesome piles of half-written syllabi. No more! Greg has painted, and I have un-piled, and the studio has finally emerged.

It's funny, because years back I had apartments much smaller than this space. Add a galley kitchen and you have my first hovel in Chicago, right behind the Pleasure Chest on Broadway. Sensational!

Anyhow, here it is. 100% cat-free zone (too many papers), occasional guest room (otherwise that's my readin' bed...*sigh*), blue sanctuary of bliss. Recognize the comforter, PJ? Quite a lasting investment.

Oh yeah, and usually my laptop is on the granite table, but it was with me that day. And yes, I finally framed my goddamn diplomas. If not now, it would've been never.

Recognize it? I think it swallowed my theory textbook.

Thanks for posting. For some reason, I wasn't able to see the photo. Is it just my computer acting up?

Oh, I take it back. The photos showed up. My connection was just taking a loooong time.

Nice room! Having a bed is important for creative nap time. The cot or bed is what I love about studios at colonies.

Cute! It reminds me of your room on Helen Street, minus the purple carpet and plaid wallpaper. Sloping ceilings, etc.

Byf--isn't it totally my old lair all over again? Only one bedroom upstairs in this casa, however, so no room to add the "break the bed" bed.

I don't have my neon phone anymore, either, thank goodness.

Should I see if Kacy still has my purple carpet?

Byf said...

Ha! I thought of Kacy, too. (I have no idea why I remember that she got your carpet.) I have an e-mail address for her somewhere ...

I love the color, Mary. (I'm debating on colors a lot these days.) Nice digs!

Wow, Mary, what a great room! Your house is coming along! I love seeing photos of the progress!

Wow! It's so uncluttered. Wish I could get my study to look like that. Actually I did - once on a Saturday morning in July of 82' between 8:30am and 10:00am. Didn't last till noon though.
