We head to Auckland, New Zealand to explore Harri's adorable craft room in her bedroom.
"I love that it is very spacious but still a very big desk and workspace. I recently just bought a trestle table for a bigger desk space and I’m loving the space I have to spread out a project (or a few) as well as display my favourite things like my ever growing magazine collection and millions of pens and pencils."
Tell us about your space?
My craft room is in my house is a urban suburb of waterfront city Auckland - known as the City of Sails in New Zealand. I’ve lived here for about 2 years but i’ve lived in Auckland my whole life. My craft space is actually my bedroom in my family’s home. I don’t think that it doubles as anything because my bed is equally important for my crafty/blogging space because it’s sometimes the best place for inspiration…..dreaming!! It’s also lovely to curl up on with my laptop to plan out a new craft or blog post. This is my room, where I do everything! I do all my crafts in here unless it’s a building project or painting because my room is carpeted and we don’t want the carpet changing colour.
What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
I have a cosy colour theme of white and wooden and let my belongings give colour because i’m a stationery fanatic and it’s always very colourful.
How do you keep organized?
I guess it’s comes quite naturally but lots of boxes and pretty belongings make it easy. I guess the things that I buy are always suited to my theme and are quite tidy but I love looking at ‘stuff’ and i would die if I went minimalistic. I just love designs and colour and prettiness to much. I’m just a lover of pretty things.
Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?
Go have a look on my blog, it’s full of it but using nice storage boxes or covering shoe boxes makes so much of a difference. But using lots of pen cups, and pretty things to organise your supplies makes you proud to show them off to your room to give it personality
Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
My favourite possession is probably either my DSLR camera or my pens and pencils collection. I have some of my creations on display like my instagram grid wall, sewing machine restyle and diy chalkboard cat.
How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?
My ideas and inspiration are kept in a big journal full of cut outs, prints, messy scrawl and colour but I also do lots of organising on my laptop and on pinterest. I have a list of ideas in my journal as well as in random places in my head and on notepads throughout my room
Where do you look for inspiration?
Well a go to place is always my pinterest but these ideas have always been used so usually my blog’s ideas just come from inspiration around my room and just from other books, magazines and sometimes someone else’s idea morphed into something of no similarity but to me they remind me of each other because they sparked the idea.
If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream space?
hmmmm….I would love to have more wardrobe storage for my stuff. I’ve got lots of space for clothes but I have limited space for stuff so I have to cut down on it and have it on display. Other than that it’s pretty much my dream space anyway.
