Moving the Studio - seeking design solutions

Where am I moving to? Downtown Orlando Florida. 
This incredibly cool space is in an old motel. 
Meet the new Robin Maria Pedrero art studio - before I move in. 
 I am very excited to have the opportunity to be in this space.
The floor will be placed in next, then I can move in.
I am looking for suggestions on a creative way to improve on the wall lamps 
which are for now a fixture that is staying... any good ideas?

Amazing space, I like the Retro feel. I would be tempted to embrace that style,but update the fixtures.
What ever you do will be wonderful & work well after all it is the heart of your art!

The wall lamps are hideous. To say they should be removed is an understatement -- they should be detroyed and all trace of their existance on earth should be wiped out. Lacking that option, perhaps you could have new shades made; sewn from your fabric designs. Maybe you could place a tall pedestal under each of them, with your wine or other 3-D artwork prominently displayed. Or, perhaps you could build and mount some sort of storage cabinet around the light fixtures - to hide them, or at least distract from them...

Other than the offensive lights, I LOVE your new space! Best of luck, and I hope you get tons of collectors beating down your door!

Just decorate the heck out of with your beautiful art. That's a no brainer. : )

Congratulations Robin! How wonderful!

Nice space-those lamps-ugh. First get rid of the shades. Then how about a vertical screen shade-even made from rice paper-with maybe another clip on light pointing down.

Nice space, congratulations!
It's depending what kind of look you want to create and what kind of style. I would add those galvanized outdoor lights from Lowes: I like the industrial look because it is neutral, looks clean and gives the place a modern touch. That way your artwork stands out and speaks for itself.

Let us know what you've decided, I am very excited for you!

Thanks for all of the suggestions.
The floor will go in tomorrow and then I will get a better feel for the space.
