A Room of One's Own

Dear Friends,

Where do you spend your day?  Are you at home, in an office, or in a classroom?  Maybe you work in a library or in a store. 

I'm in the process of re-doing an office/sewing room/make-a-mess-place at home.  Right now all I have is a gallon of paint called "Pistachio" and a few curtains with little violets, but baby steps!  What type of work space would inspire you?

Now in reality, not many of us own these fab lofts, or have entire rooms to spare, but here are a few smaller-scale work spaces I hope will encourage any doubters out there (including myself!)!

corners are great for making space stretch + adding coziness

cleverly hidden spaces & a little peg board

bookshelves---store up, not out, brilliant!

image
even a former mud room can be a great studio space, plus what great light!

image
this could even go in the living room or kitchen & not take up a lot of space


For the office-workers (depending on company policies), bringing plants, a lamp or two, and some wall or scrapbooking paper can go a long way!

happy artwork and some bright pops of color

how sweet is this?!  a miniature garden for the office!


And for those of you who work at the gym, the superstore, or as students, how cute are these DIY locker accessories?  Find the link to this whole article here.

Wherever you spend your time, I hope you find inspiration in your work and in the space around you. 

Until Soon,
Sara/ "Jane" xx
