Now, you know that I love to celebrate what a space is used for and pay homage to it's purpose through my designs. Obviously, since this space will be used to record songs I wanted to create something that made reference to music!
Let's look at the BEFORE and AFTER . . .
Can you tell what I was going for? The wall was meant to resemble a music equalizer. You know, one of these things you see on fancy CD players among other things.
I created this focal wall by padding and upholstering rectangles with different colored fabrics. The rectangles were cut from duct board for acoustic purposes. I attached the pieces to the wall with industrial strength velcro.
If you've been around for any length of time, you know I love color and luckily so does Amanda! :) This rainbow installation simply makes my heart happy!!
On the other side of the room there was a cutout with some shelves. We embraced the space and decided it was a perfect place to set up all the necessary equipment for recording music. The shelving holds musical equipment, a computer, office supplies, and a few decorative items.
The light in the space is really cool. Unfortunately, I had a very difficult time photographing it, especially in the full length shots. In person the fixture really adds to the design. Hopefully you can imagine how cool it is by these few photos.
Can you believe I found this incredible fixture at Habitat for Humanity ReStore for $20!!! Deal of the century! I dig it's retro vibe!
So, there you have it! A closet turned recording studio! What do you think?
I'm thinking about writing a post featuring all the functions a closet can perform if you think outside the box. Turning closets into offices is a pretty common occurrence. Has anyone seen other super cool ways to use a closet space? I'd love to hear about them! Leave links in the comment section!
Happy a glorious weekend!
