I did get the guest bedroom cleaned out last weekend.  It is coming together but I kinda left one thing out when I was thinking about it last week.  See it is a guest bedroom maybe 2% of the time.  The rest of the time it is my craft room.  So I need some inspiration of what I should add to the room to complement my sewing desk to make it a functional work space.  Here are some spaces that have got me thinking!

I love how compact but functional this space is with all the built ins.

Chez Larsson- craft space

Hmm - again more built ins.  But also cute frames and a place to post things.

Ok - so this is fantastic!  A place to hold things you need plus something decorative.
Ballard is always on their game.  I love the way this workspace is laid out.

Oh what I could do with a wall sized cork board.

Hmmm - again more cork boards.  And a beautiful collection of white vases.

Shoshana modern home office

Ok - so this is more of a bed shot than a workspace shot, but it shows how both can exist in the same place.

3XX Queen Street eclectic home office

What is there not to like about this room?  Fantastic roman shade, great color on the walls, and beautiful bedding.

How adorable is this!  I love french memo board treatment on the wall.

So crisp - so organized!  And I love those lamps!

Isn't this wallpaper amazing!  Love how they incorporated the wall decor in with the colors and shapes.

I love Traditional Home Office: 8th pic. Thanks for this post. I'm going to be doing an office-craft room / guest room soon too. Mine has an open door space so I have to keep it neat & streamline but pic 8 has given me some good ideas. :)

I love the sophisticated brown walls with the robin's egg blue chair and accents. But then the very next picture is the white one that is so fresh and I love that too! Maybe two craft rooms - one for me, one for the kids! Thansk for sharing such pretty and inspiring photos.

Beautiful rooms! I'm with you on the giant cork board. Endless possibilities. Thank you for sharing!

The rooms are all so inspiring and beautiful. I am in the process of working on my office/studio. I hope to have it complete by the end of summer. I am using the palest blush pink for the walls and white trim. I hope it turns out!

Yes, I too would love a great craft room...the one from Ballards calls to me. =)

This post make my heart flutter! Sigh..... I am painting my craftroom right now. Always changing my mind about how I want it to end up. :) Thanks for the pics!

I feel like I just had the richest dessert available in the universe. I want to move into my computer now and create in every one of those spaces! Aaaaahhhhhh --

These are terrific ideas-- great photos and for those of us who are in search of a more organized work space but haven't quite pulled it together yet, they are invaluable. I also so appreciate you stopping by my blog. Jane F

I love the second one and the ballard one. I think my must haves are lot of workspace, and the ability to reach most of my stuff from my workspace. Good lighting is a must too!

cool! Every creative crafty space does need a couch or daybed for reflection and afternoon nanna naps!! Happy Blue Monday <3

Karen said... @ May 31, 2010 at 3:55 PM

Whenever I see great spaces like these it makes me want to makeover my own home office/craft area.

Jenni said... @ June 14, 2010 at 10:05 PM

I LOVE that wall paper in the contemporary home office design - any idea who makes it? It would go great in my teen daughters room!

Those wall-sized cork board looks great for everyone who loves to keep their ideas and inspiration in a place they can easily see. Also, the design as shown with those storage spaces is fantastic for storing up your craft materials and keeping the work area neat.
