Last week Apartment Therapy featured this spread on Robin’s Gorgeously Green Artist Barn and the Home Tour was so amazing that it really stuck with me throughout the week.  It might be one of the best Home Tour’s I have seen on their site and thought it was more than worthy of a little share with you.

Indulge…

This barn was created to be her studio, and was constructed by Robin herself along with George, owner and creator of GeoBarns.  As a gal who has longed for a studio of my own, for as many years as I can remember, I am now perfectly convinced that I need to move to Connecticut, Vermont, or any of the surrounding states George might be willing to work, so that I too might build myself a GeoBarn with his help!

There is something about the idea of living or working on a Farm with chickens that I am completely and utterly drawn to. Throw in an amazing place to create, some industrial chic pieces, mixed with soft colors, beautiful encaustic art landscapes, and a vintage Anthropologie-esque vibe and I am sold!

To top things off, this barn was constructed in a budget friendly manner and with an Environmentally Friendly Approach, by using a salt treatment on the wood rather than a chemical treatment to protect from the elements. Nifty, huh?

I urge you to visit and view the whole Home Tour, it is pretty fabulous and you really can’t get the full effect from my miniature collage o’beauty.
