Dreaming of... Creative Spaces

I have this habit of bookmarking/saving/dog-earing/tearing out my dream rooms for future reference. I have files stuffed with kitchens, mudrooms, living rooms and my latest obsession, workspaces. I've talked about the workspace that the hubby and I recently created from one of our closets. Even in its unfinished state, the fact that it is my dedicated space makes me feel ultra creative. I can only imagine how I'd feel in one of these spaces:

I am looking foward to owning a house where I can make my own creative space:) I love the room upstairs and the one outside.

Whoa - these are amazing! I love the upstiars one with the slanty ceilings and the outdoor shed one.

Kotori said...

These are all so inspiring... how clever is the attic space that's been redone with those slanting ceilings? Genius. I can't get enough of seeing peoples' creative spaces.

Jenny said...

I love the second one with the yellow. What a great island!

Blair said...

OH, all lovely! Love the red and yellow in the last room--so happy!

i've always wanted an attic room...*sigh* one day! (:

The attic room just happens to be Martha Stewart's... If that makes us feel better about not quite having that type of space just yet!

I love that cow parsley wallpaper in the second photo, especially in that happy yellow tone. And the room itself is pretty fabulous as well. Such a great use of that IKEA wall system with the egg shaped containers. Of course, Martha always gets it right. But my fave just might be that little shed, oh my goodness, can you even imagine!

Love these!

I love the distressed cabinet in the third from the bottom! I'd take that in a heartbeat!

i YEARN for the day when i have a big space where i can keep all of my crafty things in a tidy little area.

Katie said...

I do the same thing with bookmarks! I try to go in and weed it out once a month, but at this point, there are so many, it's a lost cause!

paula said...

I too dream of a creative space all my own one day. The second and third image have the organization that I just adore.

Love the outdoor shed. I'm going to forward this to my husband ;)

Amy said...

Those are all fabulous workspaces! I like the first one best - I think the tall stools pushed me over the edge...

Kasey said...

these are amazing indeed.

Magchunk said...

That pink one with the ruffles makes me a little claustrophic, but I adore the little shed.

Joyce said...
