I love the pegboard I made to hold my craft tools.


Tell us about your space

Our house was originally build in the 50s but was added onto at some point. My craft room is a small "master bedroom" that was added onto the house (it has its own bathroom). The room serves as both an office and craft room for me. There is also a door that leads to our backyard so I can go outside for painting projects or photo shoots.

What have you done to make your space cosy, beautiful or inspiring?

I painted the walls a very light gray because I wanted the ceiling to really pop. I choose a coral-pink color for the ceiling.

I try to keep colorful props and craft supplies on display for inspiration.

How do you keep organized?

Lots of boxes, bins, and tubs. The closet is full of these.

Any tips & tricks for organising supplies?

Place colorful, inspiring, and frequently used supplies where you can easily see them and use them.

Which are your favourite possessions and are there any of your own creations on display?

I love the framed pegboard that I made to hold my craft tools. Some of my other favorites are cupcake holders and decorations that I used/ made for my wedding.

How do you organise your inspiration and ideas?

I used to have a binder where I clipped photos from magazines but now I mainly use Pinterest. I also have a few idea notebooks where I jot ideas and sketches.

Where do you look for inspiration?

Mainly online, sites like Cut Out + Keep and Pinterest.

If you had three wishes, what would you do to make it the dream space?

If I had 3 wishes, I would have a larger space with wood or concrete floors (better for messes than carpet), with room for a place to take photos of finished projects. I would also add some cool tools like a paper cutting machine.
