I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend, crafting and catching up on all sorts of projects! I've been working on some new tutorials and projects for you that I will be sharing within the upcoming month. So don't forget to check back within the next week and see what I have in store for you!
Today's post is very special to me because today I will be showing you one of my most treasured spaces: Where I Sew!
When we first moved in, my studio used to be the "library", where my son Alex had all his gaming systems set up and the walls were lined with bookcases. It was sort of a living room, that really wasn't a living room, but it was! Then it became my workspace, where I had only my computer desk, a beige couch, and a vintage rug for decoration. From there, I started to add my own style to it and Voila! I now have my studio and sewing room.
As most of you know, I love collecting vintage furniture, so you can be sure of it that my sewing room and studio have quite a few vintage finds, combined with some modern furniture pieces that I have. I can't get enough of mixing the modern with traditional!
Most of you know that I'm a history fanatic, so of course I had to pay homage to one of my favorite historical figures, Marie Antoinette. I have her portrait in one section of my studio, with a set of striped-floral pillows that I made. I have to say, these are one of my favorite projects that I've done so far!
I LOVE COLOR, so it has be present everywhere I work! Accents of color are a great way to liven up your home and add a touch of brightness and happiness to any room. I've painted picture frames, collected colorful vases, and bought decorated tea sets that all have something to bring into my decor.
Ah, here is my sewing room! Yes, I know it's a bit organized, but that's for photographic purposes. Did you really think I would take a picture of all the mess that I have lying around? Besides, I had to clean up someday and I thought that taking these pictures would give me a good enough reason to do so.
You can find all sorts of inspiration for your spaces on Pinterest. One of my favorite pictures is that of the thread being framed on the wall. I had to do it for myself because the idea seemed so wonderful to me!
Even though it may not be organized 364 days out of the year, I love to try to keep things in an orderly fashion. I have all my fabric bolts, interfacing and batting rolls, as well as my threads, in this nice wooden shelving unit I got from Ikea some time ago. It's proved quite helpful, showcasing wonderfully what I have that way I can grab things and go (which is probably why it might get messy sometimes)!
So, thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. Hopefully this inspires you to add some color into your life and not to be afraid to add your own style into your working space!
Until next time, my lovelies!
