Bright and Beautiful Seattle Studio


I first saw the photos of Aran Goyoaga’s beautiful studio on Instagram. It was the location for the Seattle Blogshop, and I was totally jealous that day, seeing photos roll in from all the people who got to attend it. I thought the space was just beautiful…with all that white, the exposed beams, and lots of light coming in. So obviously I had to find out more about the person behind this dreamy space! Aran is a food writer, stylist & photographer who lives here in Seattle. She recently started offering workshops and classes in gluten-free cooking, food photography, prop styling, and floral arranging (which all sound amazing…wish I could afford to go to every single one!). Plus, she’s written a book: Small Plates & Sweet Treats! Pretty talented lady.

That kitchen area is just to die for. I love, love, love the neatly arranged rows of open shelf storage, with all the pretty tableware.

Aran Goyoaga’s studio is amazing!

Pretty blue dishes

I like this way of storing knives too. I’ve heard it’s better for your knives as well as being handy.

The rest of the studio is reeeeaaally pretty too! I like how Aran kept the space open, airy, and bright. It feels like the perfect blank canvas for lots of inspiration and creativity--a place for beautiful things to happen.

So good, right? I can’t get enough of it. What’s your favorite part? I think that first photo has got to be my favorite. Dream kitchen!!

    These photos are all lovely. The space is open and airy, so natural light can combine well with the lanterns and the IKEA chandelier (the "flower" like one). Thank you for sharing!

    I really adore that kitchen! but mostly i love the mug shelves (as I am calling them) I really enjoy a good, cute mug and have always dreamed of a cute way to display them while they aren't being used.

      Me too! I can never have too many cute mugs (and bowls too!). Did you ever see my DIY belt strap shelves? They're an easy project so you can display some of your favorite pieces and keep them handy, while you work on your dream kitchen with tons of open shelving :)

    Oh what I wouldn't give for a studio space like that! So beautiful and functional and just perfect. No wonder Aran's work always looks so great. You know, that and the fact that she's insanely talented. :)

      Right?! She really is.
