What Houzz contributors are saying:
Hang your music poster collection. As random as that may sound, studio walls are the perfect place to hang prints you've accumulated over the years. Silk-screened prints from concerts you've been to tend to fit in well here. Put them anywhere else and you run the risk of looking like a frat house, but tacked to walls in your studio, the colorful graphics are sure to get your creative juices flowing.
Since you can't paint your walls, it's important to add color and interest in other ways to dispel the institutional feel. Create a collage on your walls with inexpensive (or better yet, free) items like concert posters, museum fliers — any ephemera that speaks to you and adds beauty to the space. Arranged thoughtfully, disparate pieces can form a cohesive look that's totally unique to you.
OK, so this space does have a dorm room vibe - it's creative space, even though it belongs to a grownup. But here's where it diverges from kids' space: I love the way the orange and blue-purple of the posters on the wall work together. Plus, the organization of the posters is something of an artful collage, creating an interesting look from far away and close up.
