Cue the marching band and fireworks! We’ve finished the Checks and Spots HQ renovation and now I can share the finished space with you in this video…

 

 

I’ve been working out of the studio for a few weeks now and am in the midst of a full-blown love affair with it! The changes we made to the layout – like opening the space up by removing cabinetry, putting one long bench desk along the window and installing a built-in banquette – mean the space is now not only unique but also practical. As for the furniture I picked out from Freedom and the paint I chose at Taubmans, well they work better than I had imagined (phew!) and have helped create a space with personality.

By physically separating work and home, I’m finally regaining a sense of balance in my life. Work is no longer bleeding into every corner of my life. In fact, the walk to and from the studio has become my favourite part of the day as it acts like a little buffer between being a mum and being a business owner – and helps me to be better at both.

In case you missed any of the earlier episodes in The Studio Project, you can check them out here. Oh, and stay tuned for a new event series I’ll be running out of the Studio…I hope you’ll be able to come along!
