Come behind the scenes at Nur noch and see Ronja's bedroom / craft room in Hamburg, Germany.
I love my bedroom because of its big window and its high ceiling. Earlier this year I painted the entire wooden floor in my flat white and I also have white walls. This way every room in my flat is always bright and I have the best lightning in my bedroom/craftroom to take pictures for my blog, at least until 2pm.
Tell us about your space
I craft everywhere in my flat (Well, not in the bathroom!) but my bedroom is my official craft room because I keep my sewing cabinet there. The type of sewing cabinet I have was very popular in the 60s and 70s. The sewing machine stands on a folding device and can be sunk into the dresser, if you furthermore close the doors and fold in the lids, only a small drawer is left and the sewing machine is hidden. I also store my fabrics in my bedroom in a shelf that I built out of apple crates and everything else I need for sewing.
What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?
I keep cats everywhere! That makes every room cozy. I also always have fresh flowers and lots of plants. Give me cats and flowers and I am ready to craft!
How do you keep organized?
I don´t! I throw everything in my drawers, cases and trunks and then I pull everything out again when i need a special item. I´s like trying to keep a black hole organized. I don´t recommend this system.
Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?
Nope, Sorry! I am fresh out of organizing tips but I would love to get some myself! :-) The only wise words I have are: ALWAYS wash your brushes directly after painting with them....That´s all I got.
Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?
Just recently I got one of my favorite possessions as a gift from my aunt. I never really knew my father’s dad because he died when I was small. My granddad was a doctor and in the 1930s he wanted to move to Africa to help the people there so he let a company built him a HUGH oversea trunk with his monogram. A few months ago my aunt decided that I should have this old oversea trunk because my granddad and I have the same monogram. I am over the moon! Otherwise half of my flat is filled with my own creations. In the beginning of this year I cleared nearly my whole flat empty and started to redesign the whole thing new with my own pieces and my own handmade furniture.
How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?
I keep everything in my head. When I started blogging I used lists and sticky notes but that felt too much like an office job. These days I live more in the moment. I have tons of different materials and objects that would be great for upcycling projects in drawers all over my flat and whenever I need a new idea I just look in my treasure-drawers and a new inspiration will come to me.
Where do you look for inspiration?
Absolutely everywhere: I love to get inspired by the material itself, I can get lost for days while browsing the internet and magazines and I love to brainstorm with my wonderful creative friends.
If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream space?
1. I would love to have more space for storage.
2. In a perfect world I would have a small photo studio in my craft room.
3. My craft room would look much better with a overlock sewing machine in it!
