Recording Studio Feature Wall

Recording Studio Feature Wall
Happy Monday friends! I hope you had a festive St. Patricks Day! This week and particularly today is very important for us! We are having inspections to make sure everything is in tip top shape before we hand the keys over to the new owners of our home. We’re hoping for no major surprises, but we’ll know for sure how things will play out in the next few days!

Anyway, now on to the stuff you really want to know about. I am in the middle of designing a recording studio/room for Amanda (if you remember I designed her music school’s waiting room/office area not too long ago). Well, Amanda only has a small space for the recording area, but that certainly doesn’t mean that it has to lack in style!

My idea was to embrace the function of the room (to record music) and create a feature wall that spoke to that purpose. So we cut up a ton of rectangles and upholstered them with batting and colored fabric.

The idea was to create a feature wall the resembled a musical equalizer. You know, one of these things. . .

Of course I couldn’t help but add in a ton of color. . . bright, rainbow shades make me happy! 🙂 Here’s how it turned out!

I still have some things to add to the room like: a new light fixture, an accent chair, a desk area, and more. It should come together in the next few days, so hopefully I’ll have some finished photos to share with you next week!
See you tomorrow!

    That is rather genius. Definitely not for every space, but that’s what makes it amazing… you know? The fact that it’s the *right* space for it… I bet it would absorb sound fairly well too (with the batting) — but you probably already thought of that 😉

    What is it that you wrapped with the fabric? Was it for sound proofing or just to balance the acoustics? My husband &I are in the market for our first house and once we’ve got one, one of our bedrooms will house his drumset. I would love to do something like this to soundproof the room eventually. It’s such a wonderful idea!

    I do that redecorate with my mind thing too Dana! 🙂 You should give them your business card and tell them how awesome you could make their space!

    Haha! Thanks Lindsey! I love creating spaces that speak to the people inhabiting them! Love your new desk redo- the pattern on those doors is AMAZING! 🙂

    Hey Ashley! The base of the rectangles is duct board (buy it at electrical supply shops). It is great for sound proofing but it’s a bit expensive, so be ready for that. 🙂 I’d love to see what you end up doing in the room!
