Friends, I'm stumped.
See, the back bedroom that we just completely refinished serves as my sewing/craft room and our office. Plus, Chris' dresser and clothes live in the (smaller) closet :). That's a whole lot of multi-functioning for one, pretty tiny, room. Since we put so much effort into making the bones of this room look sharp, I want to make sure the furnishings follow suite. Plus, it's a craft/sewing room. It needs to be inspirational, or I'll never sew ;).
I thought I'd start with a mood board. Similar to the one I made for the back entry. But, I can't come up with anything! What's a girl to do? That's right, hit the great interwebs for inspiration. I'm not sure why it's taken me this long to write this post, but just looking through craft room photos and offices photos has been immensely helpful and inspirational.
Want to see what I'm loving for offices and craft rooms?
This lovely office has been on my radar for a couple years. What I especially like is the *L* shaped table that gives lots of counter space with a minimal footprint, and the big armoire for storage.
This room is gorgeous. LOVE that lamp. What really caught my attention, though, is the creative fabric *storage*. All my fabric is hiding behind closet doors at the moment. Having is on display is not only beautiful, but incredibly helpful for remembering what you have to work with.
Here, I am loving both the lights (chandelier lights in an office are so pretty!) and the HUGE table.
I don't have room for an entire wall of storage, but I like the idea repurposing a console or buffet into a large counter area.
This room is amazingly close to what I have in mind. Like the first picture, it's a *L* shaped set up. The photo is a little blurry, but you can see a sewing machine at one end of the tables and a computer under the window. Love this.
This room I love solely for the the color palette. Okay, and all the great storage boxes :).
I'm thinking a lot about floating shelves, similar to this. I like how these shelves are customized and think a few of these a long one of the walls would be a great addition.
What are some of your office or craft room *must haves*? Do you have rooms in your house that do double or triple duty?? And, any ideas for creative fabric storage? There doesn't seem to be much on the internet about this.
