Creative Studios and Craft Room Inspiration

Creative Studios and Craft Room InspirationCountry Living

Do you have a space in your home where you feel inspired for creative pursuits? Maybe you have an entire room, or a table, or even a shelf or cabinet of your own? I feel like much of my house is a creative canvas and an opportunity for creativity, but when it comes to actually “crafting” or “making things” I’m not necessarily inspired or inclined to start a project (or really enjoy it) unless I have the space set aside for it.

Here are some lovely ideas for winter dreaming. Whether you want to designate space to wrap presents, for art projects, to sew, paint or maybe even make cards or gifts, I hope these images will help get the creative wheels turning for an organized creative space of your own.

Enjoy! Happy Monday.

4 Takeaway Tips for a Home Office {My Home Office}

The Inspired Room - Hale Navy Home Office

This weekend I shared quite a few inspiration images for functional and livable spaces (if you missed that post, you can find it here)! Today I thought I would share one of my own favorite functional spaces, my home office. Now, for those of you old timers here, you know this office is from my old house. While I have not yet beautified my new home office, I will be using my old office as inspiration for the new in many ways. My decor might change, but the lessons learned will still inspire me for my new home.

I featured this room and many photos in The Inspired Room book, of course, but today I wanted to give you a little peek at my office and offer a few of my own takeaway tips that you could use if you’re setting up your own creative space or home office.

1. Designate a special space to be inspired, organized and creative.

Being self-employed, I realized years ago that I needed to have a home office to keep me sane, organized and creative. If you are serious about a home business or just want to keep the family organized, make it your mission to set up designated space somewhere in your home (even if it is just a small corner of a bedroom).

2. Surround yourself with inspiration.

I need to be inspired by my own working environment so I can focus on the new tasks at hand. When I was setting up my office, I thought about the colors, the textures and the items I wanted to see around me. I hung inspiration boards above my desk. It all mattered to my productivity and sense of well-being!

3. Find organizational systems you can live with.

Having organizational systems that I actually use makes all the difference in how organized I feel! If I buy all the pretty bins and boxes but never use them, my office really isn’t functional at all. When I find I have systems that I don’t use, it is worth the effort to try something else until I find what does work for me.

4. Create a homey environment.

While I run a real business from my office, I still want the office space to feel comfortable, as it is still a part of my home. I found furniture pieces and accessories for my office that brought in my style and personality but served double duty for organization of necessities, such as my second hand store rattan shelving unit and my antique secretary desk. I put a large lamp on my desk for ambience and a comfortable chair for working. The homey and creative environment made me want to spend time in my office, so I’d say it was a WIN for PRODUCTIVITY!

Do you have an office space of your own?
