I have re-decorated and rearranged rooms in my home multiple times, but this is the biggest makeover Ive ever done from the ground up. On my birthday in June we sold my parents house, which was a long time coming, and even though it broke my heart to let go of my childhood home, there is a big blessing in it all from my parents for our future. From this I allowed myself one big splurge to makeover my whole studio. My whole life I have outfitted my home with hand me down furniture, thrift finds, etc. Which is really wonderful and has made my home very homey and often sentimental to me. In my studio space I always just made it work with what I had, but I allowed myself to create my dream studio, and it felt like the biggest birthday gift ever from my parents. I am so grateful for this space and everytime I walk in the room to create I am filled up with gratitude.
My biggest goal was to be able to transform my studio from a jewelry studio to a jewelry/ magazine writing space. Before my jewelry supplies cluttered two huge desks and it was hard to even think in this space unless I was submerged in jewelry design. Over the past year I have made jewelry less and less b/c of the magazine and Skyline Fever. So now I have all my jewelry supplies tucked away in this desk with drawers where I can easily access them if I'm inspired to do so, and have also created an inspiring place to write my magazine. I sit at this desk with the window open, watching the deer outside, usually with Banjo b/c he loves watching the deer too. It is now a space I can go to to sit and daydream about the magazine and feel super inspired. The whole feel of this space has just shifted incredibly.
A little side note: I do NOT think you have to have the perfect space to create, ever. I think it's often an excuse so many of us make to not create something, by not having the right space. My dream of starting my own business years ago began on a card table behind my couch in a 3x6 space. If you have the passion, you make it work, regardless! That being said, there is also nothing wrong with creating a beautiful space to create in if you are able to. It can be truly inspiring to do so. I'm very grateful to have this space, but I would never stop creating if I did not have it.
