My newly decorated workroom

I thought you might be interested in a glimpse at my workroom, given it's just been decorated and is now at the very tidiest it will EVER be!!
It's decorated in Farrow & Ball's 'Wimborne White' (Wimborne in Dorset is coincidentally where some of my closest family live!!).
There are still too many boxes around for my liking but once I have disposed of some of my older artworks, I will be paring down the number of boxes and ultimately the idea is to have most of my stores and stocks in cupboards or hidden under the big table.
I do my sewing on a desk, which is actually a Studybed, which folds out to become a double bed when needed.
There's plenty of work room and I am going to resist the temptation to put 'stuff' on there, and keep it to just sewing machine, cotton reels and current project...
I also have a large table where some of my fabric scraps are kept in clear drawers, alongside other stashes such as embelishments, inks, and so on.
I've left a nice clear space on the worktable so that I can cut larger pieces of fabric, or set out projects such as keyring making or card-making. Like most creative people, I tend to work on a number of projects concurrently, which can sometimes lead to a challenging use of space!!
I also have a chest of drawers and a small cupboard, where I store packaging, fabrics, pens, books, sketches, paperwork, tools, trimmings and more fabric!
At some point I will get a hanging rail system, so that I can display some current original artworks on the walls and add a bit of colour. But for now, I can't wait to start on my next project!
It's great to have a dedicated space to work in. I love the fold away bed idea :)
