I love finding new blogs and I love sharing inspiration and talent with all of you, so when I find a new to me site with some beautiful pics to share, it’s a perfect fit for my Feature Friday series.
Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, meet Laura Trevey, a wonderful artist, who I have just discovered from Bright, Bold and Beautiful. She is a delightful artistic talent and I think you will love her original paintings. I have a particular fondness for watercolors, so have been swooning over her colorful Etsy products and her new studio space that she just finished up.
How would you like to work in a space like this? Energizing and beautiful, it’s a work of art in itself. You can see Laura’s works of art hanging on the wall. Like this adorable and colorful dress hanging above Laura’s desk. Laura shopped at Ikea, which I think is so smart. I just visited that store again last weekend and it truly has some great ideas for a home office and organizing.
Here is what Laura says about her Ikea purchases:
My desk is made up of two Vika Artur trestles and a nice glass beveled edge top. I love my Jules swivel chair as well.
Here’s how Laura describes her new studio:
More of Laura’s paintings. I hope you’ll check out Laura’s Etsy shop for affordable art for your home. Those hydrangea prints really caught my eye. The pegboard is such a great addition to an art space or craft space for that matter. Perfect!
Laura shares her wall color: Spring Mint by Benjamin Moore, such a pretty, yet soft blue for a space like this.
I hope you got inspired by seeing Laura’s studio space. Thank you Laura for letting me highlight your work AND your studio. It’s so energizing!

Wow, thanks for sharing such an awesome artist…I love her workspace! Heading over to check out her shop! Happy Weekend!
What an amazing work space, inspiring for sure… I would get a lot done in there! I love the vibrancy of her art work, such beautiful flowers and the dress above her desk is stunning, what a talent!
Thanks for introducing us.
How lovely… what a great space to create in!
What a great space. It looks like it would be a great place to work from.
I love the look of her space … spare, yet warm and inviting. Ikea rocks!

Rhoda, her space is great! Her artwork is truly fantastic… love it! I especially love the dress picture… adorable!
Thanks again for participating in my little interview! I really appreciate it!
What a lovely space. I sure wish there was an IKEA near here. The closest one is 2 hrs. away. I may just have to go and check out the couch you posted about, with the slipcover. I’m wondering about the quality….
Oh thanks for sharing. I love the canvas above her desk. I am getting ready to do something above my fireplace and I like the idea of one dramatic item. The whole oversized thing. Very cool.
Too funny I already have her etsy store as one of my favorites but I didn’t know she had a blog too. Her work is beautiful.
You always feature such lovely blogs, beautiful homes and clever, creative women! Thank you for sharing your discoveries with us. I love the work space/ office Laura created. I like the paint choice for her walls.
I am going to give some thought to the $100 question before popping over to answer.
Have a splendid weekend, my friend.

Hey Rhoda! What a cheery and yet relaxing studio Laura has. Thanks for sharing it with us. I also just went over to blog and answered the question. It took a little thought. Love the picture of you.
Have a fun weekend!
P.S. I’m having a $35.00 Jiffy lube gift card giveaway. I hope you’ll stop by and enter.
Well, I am proud to say that I have Laura’s artwork in my house! She did a very special water color JUST FOR ME… for my kitchen. I am proud to say that I have been following her for a long while. She is a true artist and showcases other artists on her blog every day. Make sure you also go to lauratrevey.blogspot.com (Watercolors by Laura) There she shows her artwork that she post each day. She is very reasonable and a fantastic artist!!!! I LOVE HER! She is a true artist that also showcases others. Nancy from OHIO
