spring inspired

There are so many different styles that I love but when it comes to decorating my home I tend to keep it simple. I have a very neutral palette of natural dark wood antiques, white slipcovers and loads of ironstone. But there is one place in my home that takes me back to my inner childhood. The entire top floor of my home is my studio space. It is a sitting room, a work space, sewing room, drafting area and so much more. This space lives in a perpetual season of spring and is filled with things that make my inner little girl smile. I think we all deserve a place that makes us feel happy, safe and inspired. I would like to share mine with you...

 
My favorite rescue chair pulled from a dumpster many moons ago.
I never settled on the perfect fabric so I decided to recover it using an old quilt...


 
It may be a simple beginner sewing machine
but I really love it...


 
A work room wouldn't be complete without aprons...

 
I was very fortunate to have my little space featured
in an issue of Where Women Create magazine...
 
 
And I do have a swing...

 
...and a drafting area with a lovely view atop the palm trees...

 

 
...and when it's time for an afternoon siesta
this is the perfect place to daydream...

 
...of course I fill every nook and cranny with my collections...

 
You might remember I shared some of my spring
inspiration in Romantic Homes...
 
 

(I really don't look anything like this when I'm working!)
 
 
One of my favorite projects in this space
was the sink re-do...
 
 
I shared the instructions in an issue
of Romantic Homes last year...



 
I do feel so fortunate to have my own little getaway
even if it is right under my own roof.
I don't need to go far to be inspired.
I can work for hours on end and it never really feels like work!
Thanks for joining me on a tour of my work space.
I hope you enjoyed it!
