Artist’s retreat

Beautiful pastel artist's retreat

I discovered Stacey Van Berkel’s photography recently and particularly loved these images that were part of a feature for Canadian Home and Country magazine. There’s a great story behind these pics too which makes them even more special. The cabin belonged to Stacey’s brother and is situated on their parents beautiful property in Nova Scotia Canada. One day whilst walking by, Stacey had the idea to transform the neglected cabin. So together with her family they totally gutted it and then transformed the space into a charming painting retreat for Stacey’s mom. The turquoise door came from her grandparents house and many of the decor objects came from her grandparents and other important people in Stacey’s life.

I absolutely love this studio space, it is so inviting and uplifting, the perfect spot to inspire creativity and be revitalised. I could easily spend some time there, soaking up the sunshine and dabbling with the some water colours, don’t you agree? Do hop over to see more of Stacey’s gorgeous photography here. Wishing you all a wonderful and creative weekend!
