Studio renovations are really coming along! As you can see, we painted the room this weekend. I have to thank Brian's wife, Amanda, for her interior design expertise. I would not have chosen this color on my own - but now that I see it on the walls I am blown away by how good it looks. We also took down the ceiling tiles and painted the frame semi-glossy black. The plan is to build wood ceiling tiles for the center, and ring the outside edges in white. Or something like that...With a 1/2" black rubber floor, gorgeousl black & white area rug and white trim, it's going to look amazing!
