We go behind the scenes of The Perfect Pear, to take a tour of Lauren's work space in BC, Canada.
"Being a blogger, graphic designer and photographer its really important for me to have a work space that I love! A place that's full of things that inspire me and motivate me to be creative and build my business helps me stay fresh and stress free! I'd have to say my cork board full of little notes, magazine clippings and gorgeous pictures is definitely my favorite thing in the space! I love updating it with some of my graphic design work, and pretty pictures! "
Tell us about your space?
My studio/ work space is located in the tiny corner of my room! Its the perfect little corner for me to blog, do DIY's and plus it allows a lot of natural light in which is great for pictures! The walls are a light minty turquoise color and I thrifted a cute little table that I painted black that which sits next to my window; all the bright light really makes me happy!Is this also your work space?
Yes, this is my work space and occasionally my craft space! I do most of the DIY's seen on my blog, The Perfect Pear in my craft space! The most recent crafts I've done are leather studded bracelets and some thin silver knuckle rings!
What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
I love bringing fresh flowers and foliage into my space, it makes it so much prettier to look at! :) The latest thing that I added is a cute little succulent in a seafoam green pot, I'm quite smitten with it!
How do you keep organized?
My desk is usually pretty clean, having jars and drawers with little compartments for papers and sticky notes really helps!
Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?
Jars! I love using jars to organized my supplies like scissors, pens and other crafty supplies like pliers and such! I love the rustic feel, but they're also really practical! The other tip I have is just to label things and have a definite place for everything and once you're done using it, put it away! If you have pretty ways of storing things, you'll be happy to clean things up and you'll like the way things look when its tidy!
Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
My succulent, as weird as this sounds is probably my current favorite thing in my little space! I occasionally put some of my graphic design work on my cork board but for the most part there's not much of my work around, just the odd jewelry piece!
How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?
I have a ton of notebooks that have scribbles of ideas all over the place! I love looking back into the notebooks and being inspired all over again! I also use the tool Wunderlist online to help with ideas and to-do's, its been a real lifesaver and I don't how I got anything done without it!
Where do you look for inspiration?
Other bloggers, Pinterest of course, Dribbble and I also really like looking at Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie as well!
If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream craft space?
I would move my space out of my room and into a bigger place, it would have gorgeous clean white walls with lots of storage space, a big computer monitor and maybe one of the walls would be a big chalk wall! I'd also love a hanging swing from the roof that I could take breaks and drink tea on! A girl can dream.
