My "studio" is not really a studio. It's a space at one end of what is supposed to be our dining room, but is not a dining room. We call it the "awkward" room even though we don't feel like it is awkward. It's a space with multiple uses...a sitting room, library, eating area, shoe storage place, and my painting studio. My easel is on one end of a table by a couple windows (natural light) with a small chest for storage. Some miscellaneous painting supplies litter the floor. It's perfect.
