I’m dreaming of a bright craft room…(to the tune of White Christmas). Who has not wished for a space dedicated to their hobbies. A bright, clean, beautiful place that is all theirs. A meticulously organized space with a place for everything and a place to sit and breath in inspiration. OK, maybe that is a bit over the top, but a clean & organized half of a guest room sounds pretty nice!
Since we moved into our new house 2 years ago, I have been planning to design a functional room for both crafting and guests. After many hours of daydreaming and browsing Pinterest for inspiration (follow my Home Decor – Craft Room board for more ideas), I am finally ready to pull the trigger and make this space pretty and functional. As I am busy behind the scenes here making this transformation take place, here are a few of the rooms I used for inspiration:
Sabrina at Pink Little Notebook nailed it with her simple, clean look in her office reveal. I am really loving the white furniture and that gorgeous blue countertop. Her room is organized and bright and serene enough to get deep in thought or craft mode. I will need a bit more storage area in my design however to stash aware all the goodies I tend to horde.
Besides storage, lots of countertop to work on is a huge priority for me too. Erin at Strawberry MomCakes is inspiring me to consider a corner desk in my space to use the L shape as an advance for additional countertop space. Once again she went with crisp, clean and white as well and I love it!
I just love this pegboard the Abby from Just A Girl and Her Blog created. You can check out the process here, and click around to see her awesome craft room makeover. Abby is quickly becoming one of my top bloggers to follow as I love her style, craftiness and blogging advice. I definitely want to incorporate a pegboard in my craft room for beautiful organization of tools.
Another pegboard I love is from Claire at Heart Handmade UK, especially the coral color. I am planning on either coral or teal as the accent color in my crafting space, and maybe a little of each. I love the way the color pops against the white furniture and the corner desk is perfect for my room too.
Now it is time to stop dreaming and start doing. Back to work on making my dream space a reality. Please stop by and follow my Craft Room board on Pinterest for more of my favorite craft room ideas and inspirations!
