The Artist’s Studio :: Alyson Fox

SO excited about the collaboration we’re kicking off today with MSN, where we’re going behind-the-scenes and into the studios of three incredibly talented and totally original artists. I’m a longtime fan of all of them, so it’s been an exhilarating experience to see each artist’s creative process firsthand and hear about how they got their start, what keeps them inspired and which artists are their personal favorites. Big thanks to MSN for partnering with us to make it all happen. First up, we’ve got the artist that the New York Times dubbed “the darling of design blogs” – the one-and-only Alyson Fox. Chelsea brought her camera and accompanied me to Alyson’s newly-built Texas hill country home to step inside her studio…

To get to Alyson’s house, you first travel a long and winding gravel road that, at some point, makes you think that surely you’ve taken a wrong turn. Just when you feel about a hundred miles from civilization, out from the cedar trees and hill country terrain stands a modernist’s dream with geometric lines, giant wood beams and huge panes of glass. The house, designed by Alyson and her husband Derek, was a true labor of love and quite the family affair – Derek’s brother and dad collaborated on the plans and structural design.

    honestly, i loved clicking through each and every picture and reading this wonderful story about alyson fox. i certainly wasn’t looking forward to that last click, a feeling i get reading so many of your stories that i don’t want to end. i hate to say that the msn plug was like hitting a brick wall. what a downer to an otherwise flawless feature.

    The copper touches, all that sunlight… Alyson’s place is amazing! Seems like such a quiet, relaxing space to get creative. No wonder Ms. Fox is such a prolific artist. I can’t wait to see the rug collection. I think it’s cool that MSN is choosing to support and expose artists in our community.

      The copper touches… YES. And the kitchen sink is from an old photo lab. Too cool!

      I know, right?? Some of her new rugs *may* be reversible, like the one shown on image 7 above. That would be such a cool feature, especially for folks who like to rearrange often, like myself. Thanks for reading, Katherine!

      Thanks a lot, Claire. She, too, is an idol of mine. Not only is she WICKED talented, but so stinkin’ humble and nice. It was an honor to go out and photograph her.
