Our builder originally referred to this room as “the flex room” on their blueprint, and it couldn’t be more true for us. While many would dedicate this space as a formal dining room or an office space, for us, it changes based on the day.
On some days, it is my in-home studio space for newborn, baby, and small childrens’ photo sessions. On other days, it’s our bare, unstyled, extra room that I can’t quite seem to get some direction on. Since the above photo was taken, I’ve added a curtain rod and sets of sheers (essential for controlling the light during sessions) but otherwise no progress.
I want this room to be LIVING space, first, and studio space, second. But to keep it friendly for shooting sessions, the walls need to remain neutral (no bright colors or busy artwork to distract) and the furnishings need to be easily moved/rearranged to accommodate a photo set-up. I’m thinking a simple setup of colorful/mobile furniture and perhaps an interesting rug I can quickly roll up and away as needed.
I’m thinking some inspiration boards are in order…
