For any creative person, it is important to have your own space to be motivated and inspired to work and do your thing.
So, when I made the decision to head back home to Plymouth, I wanted make sure I had the space I needed to create and work on projects. This meant that for the past few weeks, I have been decluttering and re- doing my entire room.
Although the process was tiring, I happy to say it is finally done and I could not be any more prouder of what I have done.
With any project start on, I always have to look for an inspiration. So for my room it was Industrial, meaning; stone/brick wall, grey walls and quirky furniture. I found the best place to find pictures and research was Pinterest.
( Here is a board I created on Pinterest.
I would like to add, when I did a collaboration with Make Space in the summertime, they asked me " What would your dream closet look like?" I posted the following, which was the same decor and inspiration as my room right now.

The pictures that are hanging on my wall were purchased from John Lewis, Etsy, Camden Market and my own work.
The Wallpaper and paint I used on my walls were Graham & Brown Fresco Ledgestone and Colours Matt Grey Hint, which I purchased from B&Q.
As for my beanbag, I purchased at Kas Australia in Dubai Mall, before I left last year.
With this desk, I liked the idea that it looked like an easel, which is what artists use to hold their canvases. So I decided to place my printer, my sewing and supplies in each of the bottom shelves.
With my desk, I wanted it to be a library/ working space, which is why I have my bookshelf above my desk and one beside it.
The actual desk itself is Linnmon/Finnvard from Ikea, which they have in white, grey, birch (wood) and black.
Dresser and Wardrobe Area
For my dressing area, I wanted it to be closer to my wardrobe and have it all in one place.
It is also something I got from Ikea, which is called Brimnes (Dressing Table)
