my office. our creative spaces. in our one car garage.

we live simply, in a small space. but like i mentioned in my post HERE, i needed a space to get my photography business & computer OUT of the house. OUT of sight. but where i didn’t have to leave my babies to work.  hmmmmmm….

we have a one car garage – and after some decorative renovations & organizing – no major changes or building… i have myself an office. and the idea expanded and now our boys have a creative/activity room connected to my office.  i still see several changes/upgrades/finishing touches that need to happen (like my picture “display” wall that needs major work still) – but for the most part, we are in action in our creative spaces.

listening to quiet palms in the wind & the sun pouring in through my open dutch door is enough to make this space simply divine for me.i really mainly thought gavin would love it the most – but truly, kai is obsessed with the space. and i love that it’s ok if he writes on the walls… they are chalkboard. and at the end of the day – it’s just the garage…in the summer – i anticipate we’ll draw open the curtains and open the garage and have a truly “indoor/outdoor” living & play experience.  i am excited to take the paints outside in the driveway and be creative & messy & free.

my goodness stacy this is SO FABULOUS!!!! I would kill for a separate space for an office and this is just so brilliant! I can see why the boys love it so much – the fairy lights totally make it :) I think garages are entirely different on our side of the world.. I could never make ours look that pretty! x

I love this glimpse of your space Stacy (the wallpaper!) – your heart for creativity and the ways that you so passionately and beautifully love your boys are inspiring, it’s just lovely! xoxo

tahnee — you’re sweet ;) really garages are not that great here either! i just painted the cement floor gray and painted all the ceilings and walls. i swear paint & sweeping goes a looooong way!!

WOW. So I know your people photos are over-the-top good, but even photos you take of the garage look UH-mazing. I LOVE the one of the sun coming in the window. You are talented, mama. This space is gorgeous. So happy for you and these lucky boys. :)

a few people asked about the little blue roller cart — it’s IKEA!!!
