my creative space ...

... is sparse (at the moment), but all mine!



I picked up the keys yesterday, and now I can begin making this space more like "me". At the moment it only has a desk and chair (more ebay bargains), but my big printing table (from Ikea - love that place) arrives tomorrow. I'm thinking about an apple green colour for the window wall and maybe fire engine red or cobalt blue for the pipe - I need some colour!

I met some of my lovely neighbours yesterday too - including Sandra from Pepperberry and Co. It's great to be surrounded by people who "get it"!

Aside from that, it's all about businessy stuff here - like getting screens  made and ordering base cloth fabric. I hope to be printing sometime next weeek - yahoo!

Yes, yes. I vote for apple green. I saw a bathroom tiled in apple green the other day & cursed myself for being "sensible for resale" & sticking with neutral.

I LOVE your studio. x

clearing off that window has made such a difference to the light in your space. it looks lovely. i would leave it all white and just paint the pipes (and maybe the window sills) apple green. i can't wait to see what you end up doing...

Spin Spin said...

Yay, can't wait to see it all coming together...and if you're anything like me, there'll be lots of, erm, rearranging and playing around - fun!

That sounds seriously fabulous! And I think apple green would be lovely! Thanks for your comments on my blog... I think we must have something in common 'the best things in life are free' is perfect! I can picture a kitty version of that immediately!

Ahh the possibilities!! I have an apple green kitchen it is so bright, cheerful and fresh. The cobalt or red would look stunning with it. We used more like a Prussian blue to offset our green and it is a great combination (the colour was called Blue Whaler by solver). What an exciting journey to be embarking on, I can’t wait to see what you do with and in your space.

Oh Nic. I so have creative space envy right now but I am so happy for you. I just know how excited you must be feeling.

Love the idea of apple green and red for the pipe. It will look fantastic.

Nikki Cardigan said...

It looks perfect aleady Nic... because it's yours. But I can see how a coat of pant and a big printing table will make it even more perfect-er!!

inkcaravan said...

Oooh, how exciting for you! Is it within a creative shared warehouse environment? I've always liked the sound of that idea, it'd be so hugely inspiring. Have fun decorating. : )
