Work in Progress

My craft room is no more:

It looks so small and sad now. It won’t take long to turn it into a lovely little jewel box of a bedroom though.

And my new craft room?

Barren and colorless and cluttered with my husband’s desk and ugly, needs painting file cabinet.

Which color do you like?

craft room color choices ||

If you can’t read the writing on the wall (ha!) the colors are ocean liner, indian ocean, mint majesty, and spring stream. Sorry for the bad lighting, but that’s what the room looks like with no lights on during the day. I wanted to get a good impression of how each of the colors worked with the available light.

My inspiration this time around?

This lovely dining room from Design Crisis:

I love the combination of bold color with neutrals and wood tones. Since that’s mostly what I have to work with, this is a good starting point for me.

If you have your own craft space, what color is it? If you don’t, what color would you paint one if you did?

Anyone have any pictures they want to share? I’d love to see where you all create! Link them up in the comments below!

  1. I like mint majesty – not so dark/intense and will lighten up the space more. Although I love all the colors!!

  2. I was going to suggest the lightest one too but since your husband will have to live with it maybe his thoughts could be taken into account!!! LOL
    Then again I’m more into green than blue so I think I like the second one better (indian ocean I think?). But you should choose the one that inspires you.

What do you think?
