Averie Lane Farmhouse - The Studio Part 1

I'm super excited to share some details on the latest project at Averie Lane!

I wish I could say it was about our kitchen or maybe even an addition, but its not.

Even though our house is far from finished ...well, let's be truthful, not even really started, it might seem odd to turn our attention to an entirely new project, but as it goes ,we found what we really needed more than anything else right now was a dedicated work space.

Some of you may know, but many of you do not, that last year we took our side hustle and turned it into a full time gig. My husband left his state job and we dived head first in to running our traveling boutique. Its been nothing short of insane since then, but it also means that we outgrew our 8x10 office/studio rather quickly. With me painting hundreds of signs a week and my husband needing to sew in the same space it became a little too close for comfort. Not to mention it was in a basement with terrible light!

We decided we needed to get out of the basement and into a dedicated building. Ideally, if the budget had allowed, we would've went straight to building a large shop with a studio attached, but since we were trying to pay cash for the is new space we had to scale way back.

So, that brings us to the studio.

Several things went through my mind when deciding on how I wanted this studio to look. It wasn't going to be a big building, but I wanted it to have character. I needed the overall style to go with our existing outbuildings, but I wanted it to represent what the overall look of our property will eventually be like. The current garage is going to be getting a makeover and the house will to, so this studio is sort of like the practice building for it all.

I sketched out a design that captured my vision and showed it to the builders. Thankfully, they got it right away and we started the process.

We picked out 12x24 ft shed with 8ft walls and a metal roof. The builders provided the doors, but we were able to special order our windows.  We also are doing all the finish work and will be subcontracting out a few other things, like electrical and possibly insulation.

I'm going to try and put together a design board for the space just so I can hammer out the details as we head towards the finish line, but until then I will leave you with the shed as it stands now (or how it stood around 9 am this morning! Paint update coming soon - if you're impatient you can sneak over to my Instagram for a peek! @averielaneblog )

Farmhouse Master Bedroom in Country Living Magazine!

Wow wow wow!

I just had to pop on here and say thank you for all your kind words about our Country Living Magazine appearance!

Farmhouse Master Bedroom in Country Lvining

It's such an honor to have our bedroom represent the great state of Idaho! There are some amazing homes in our state so its a little bit nuts that they chose ours!

I'm seriously still pinching myself because its been a dream of mine to be in a magazine! I'm very proud of the hard work we've put into our bedroom and its the first time I feel like I knew what I was doing in design. Really, I look back at my older work and I can see a drastic difference! I hope to bring that same level of design to the rest of our farmhouse as we move further along with projects. We've got big plans in the works!

Oh, I also wanted to point one of the small tweeks I made to the room...pillows! The tribal pillows are my own fabric designs! How cool is that! You can find my fabric here: Spoonflower.com/AverieLaneBoutique  or on Amazon: Averie Lane Boutique Fabric
