I ♥ my new studio...

This Valentine's Day, my love for my new studio has surpassed everything else...  My poor husband has been sidelined by my Ikea furniture and yummy carpet.  And I love my new view too.
It's been beautiful and sunny tonight and I couldn't resist taking a few photos.
But, the evening sunshine was pouring in, creating shadows and difficulties for the not-very-good photographer (me).

As you can probably tell, my shiny new studio is in my loft. :)
And I LOVE it.
Here is the other end of the room - still a blank canvas.

It's 8 metres long so just wonderful to be in.  It is, by a mile, the warmest and nicest room in the house at the moment, as we are doing other works too.  
I have space enough for things like this... rows of pretty jars :)

But - it is still a work in progress.
My ribbons for example...

I need a new solution for them :)
I'll share better pictures as I organise and set things up better.
But until then, I hope this has given you a glimpse of why I am so happy. :)
Have a great day.
P.S. This is my 2nd post today - Valentine's card below...
And I'll share my husband's card tomorrow ;)

Ribbon Girl said...

Jealous? Who me?? JEALOUS?? Of course not, I'm always this green :lol:

Lucy your room is gorgeous and I am so jealous that it's your own and you don't have to share it with anyone else and - I have those tall drawers but the smaller ones wouldn't fit under my work benches (even though I told my Dad I had measured them and that of course they would fit so then we had to take all the boxes back to IKEA) Oh you are going to have a fabulous time creating in there

Love Andrea xx

Lynn said...

Oh...this makes me happy for you...looks like a wonderful place to create....thanks for sharing!

Karen said...

What a fabulous space you now have. The window is a perfect addition. I have a beautiful room but it doesn't have an overhead light and is quite dark. I love how light and airy your room is.

Heather said...

Your room is beautiful! Thanks for sharing! I love the picture of your ribbons too!

Lin said...

What a great room, Lucy, and it's ALL YOURS!! Anxious to see more as you can share!

Ribbon Girl said...

Lucy if we all bring a chair we could have a class in your loft! Mary G x

ChickieChirps said...

It looks absolutely gorgeous Lucy! Your husband is going to be wondering where his wife is all the time now.
I have to confess my ribbons look pretty much the same as yours... I keep tidying them up and then a few seconds later they are back to chaos: (

Ros said...

Oh WOW! this is lovely ... my ribbons were just like your too ... solution ... my SIL came and tidied them! Enjoy your space .....

Laura.K said...

Wow Lucy. Your little room is gorgoeus. Really gorgeous. I would love to have a small room just for me and my hobby materials. Just dreaming.

Have a lot of fun in your little kingdom.

Beth said...

Oh my goodness, I'm green with envy! I currently craft on my spare room floor but we're moving soon and I'm looking around for inspration for my new craft room - yours is perfect. I showed my un-crafty husband and even he said wow!! I find the Really Useful boxes best for my ribbons, I've got one for each colour, they're really cheap and stack up well, they're not the prettiest though!

Love Beth xx

I wrap my ribbon around dolly pegs and fix them with a little bit of masking tape. I store them in a clear plastic box.

The photo of the ribbons is gorgeous, but why aren't they in the ribbon box I gave you?!!! Although I have to admit, they look much more pretty this way...

Jana said...

Love it Lucy! So bright and clean looking. I have those Ikea drawer units too and I'm loving them.
