Meet Emily Lou Inman from Brick Dust & Glitter and get a peek into her new studio space.
It was also really important to me to blend what was already in there and not separate the two areas. My blog, so important to me, is ongoing and I wanted to keep that space as a stand alone, rather than sharing one desk for all my jobs. So to really tie the space together and make it look as if it were a complete and whole room I have introduced a rug. A huge one too that connects both areas and means that the room feels whole rather than disjointed. It brings comfort to the space and a warmth with the colour which happens to go beautifully with the simple colour scheme already.
Until now I have always worked out of a cupboard! My sewing machine fit away nicely in a cupboard by the dining table and I would just get it out when I wanted and put everything away when I was done. Now, that I’ve become hooked on quilting, we are sacrificing space around the house to enable me to work!
Giving myself a desk devoted to my sewing machine means that I can act on my creative thoughts right when they come my way. It means that I can use my sewing machine when I want and play if the mood takes me.
At the same time, the room remains versatile, providing a space for the different kinds of work I do. How wonderful to be able to access all my equipment easily whenever I want. Hello beautiful work space!!
