Craft Rooms, beautiful craft rooms..

So as I've mentioned before, I've recently moved house.

I moved into a much smaller house, but not so small that I feel claustrophobic.
But the most exciting thing about the move was actually the fact that I now have a craft room.

I'm sure fellow crafters know the significance of this. A place that belongs to you and you only, a place to craft, to muse and to ponder upon inspirations.. a place to procrastinate..

My craft room will also double up as my blogging HQ. Right now I'm sitting on the floor in my living room while I type out this blog entry. Terribly inspiring, I think not? I've set up my desktop and tables, I have two new shelves waiting to be set up and put into place, then everything to be sorted out and put into their respective spots. Unfortunately because this is a rental house, I can't exactly paint the walls, but I will be abusing the wonderful 3m stickers that are friendly towards painted walls.

How many of you ladies (and gents) have your own craft room? I'd love to see photos for inspiration. Flickr has been most forthcoming, but I'd love to see what you have done to your room to make it yours.

In return, I promise to post up photos of my own when I'm done with it! For now, let me share one of my favourite craft rooms I have found.

Andrea from Velvet Strawberries has one of the most beautiful craft rooms I've ever seen.

Look at that inspiration board! It's fantastic! I definitely want one in my room.

Have a look at the rest of the photos from her craft room: The beautiful pictures just takes your breath away! I know it did mine.

Absolutely, absolutely gorgeous.



  1. Wowie! Great inspiration for setting up your space! I've just moved house as well and am still working out the kinks in my new system. I did a blog post about my desk here if you want to peek!


    We are renting a furnished house, so the "before" shot is from the owners, not me! :)

  2. Those are beautiful! I'm giving up my craft room this week to move in with James' parents ;_; That said, the second we buy out own place I am going to spend the first day painting my new craft room with pink and white stripes :D

  3. Oh yes, I would love one in my craft room (if I had one)! You couldn't help but be so inspired in that kind of environment :D

  4. I have a craft space but no matter how hard I try, it just looks .... messy!! I am a chaotic creator and I just cannot maintain such inspirational beauty - but LOVE looking at spaces of people who can create and keep things looking so stunning!


I love to read comments and chat, so please do leave me some titbits! Thank you so much for adding that little bit of sparkle into my day. Hopefully my blog post added some into your day as well.
