The blogosphere is filled with amazing craft rooms and home offices and lately I’ve been pining away for such a space for myself. But, I’m in a mundane boring office cubicle all day at my day job (unless we’re out in the field, which is cool) and in the evenings my creative workspace is me in our living room, either on the floor working on a project or blogging in the Ikea Poang chair with the laptop in my lap and usually sports on the television. Comfortable? No and Yes. Convenient? Yes and Yes. Inspiring? Notsomuch.
So here it is, a mash-up of things I picture when I think of the perfect workspace. At home. In my dreams I work from home of course. I picture a loft area or quiet little attic nook with skylights, white angled walls, and a mix of natural, neutral, rustic, and comfy furnishings with tons of organization options. A little touch of whimsy/funk/sarcasm thrown in too :)
Comfy layered rugs, DIY painted floors, a daybed for all those naps, tons of cabinetry, a huge work table, and since the space will be flooded with natural light from the skylight and glass doors, I want alot of plants hanging all around.
Tons of organization and functionality for crafting and crocheting as well as a desk area for blogging and working from home. Bright white planked walls of course.
There are so many great craft/office spaces out there with genius organization ideas, it was really hard to narrow this down to just what is here. I feel like have four different versions of my dream space floating around in my head and this is just one of them. Maybe by the time we actually have a room that can be this, I’ll be able to settle on some ideas. Until then, I’m pinning away!
What about you, do you currently have a space at home to create and work in? What is your favorite aspect of it? Or do you dream of one someday like me, stuck working on the floor with football on?
