I've never known what to call this room. It's so much more than an office, so I've settled on calling it "the studio." It's where I work, sew, write, surf, develop photos, and exercise. Opie is usually close by, lounging on his green velvet throne, or trying to snuggle me while I'm working my core :)
This room is joined to the living room by a set of original pocket doors, and when the doors are open, it feels like a very big space. I love the flow! Robert's place has a similar set-up, but not on the same scale as this :(
I have not repainted the hallway. I'm a firm believer that hallways should be treated as rooms and that they can handle dramatic color, and so, the purple stays! I love this hallway, especially considering how boring it was when I moved in.
Fingers crossed that St. Joseph will work his magic on Sunday...
