In the end of April I have been thinking about a color scheme for my craft room. It has been crazy here and nothing really happened there to be honest. Currently the room looks like this:
Yesterday the painter was here again (yes yesterday) to cover up all the mistakes, missed spots and screw ups. So officially the room is ready for the move in.
I’m not really bothered that we pay rent since June… Unfortunately with everything going on here, I have no clue what to do with the room. So that is where I need your help. Here are my first ideas and thoughts:
I wanted the craft area to be near the window. Right now the light situation is really bothering me and I can only sew when it’s daytime. The other important thing for me was enough desk space. I want an area to cut fabric without robbing around on the floor. And this way there is also room for crafting gatherings. And of course I need as much storage as possibly.
When turning around it looks like this:
I wanted a little area to sit and read, drink a cup of tea or even chat. The room will also be functioning as a guest room. Since I didn’t think a couch would fit in here I went with a lounge chair which can be made into a bed. Maybe I even have room for two chairs. That would be nice → hence the chatting.
So here is the room layout. What do you think? I’m mulling over those questions right now:
• Is the room too packed with all the storage space?
• Should the desk be on the left wall?
• Is there enough space to comfortably sleep in the room?
• Do I need this much desk space or is one desk element enough before the L-thing starts?
I have tried a few alternatives:
Or a variation with the desk on the left side.
I actually like the last picture, now looking through my options again. But still the wall is not very sturdy.
So I’m lost in all my thoughts. Any comment is appreciated. Go crazy, I’m counting on you.
Have a great weekend, Tobia
P.S. Oh and about the color scheme. I think I go with a petrol shade but only in the area of the reading nook. This way it’s easy to change if I’m sick of it.
