My Craft Room: Part 2 {Inspiration Board}

as promised, here is my inspiration board for my Craft Room. {if you’re new, i moved into a house this summer with an extra bedroom that i staked claim on for my craft room…. and i’m having so much fun planning and decorating it!}

inspiration for decorating a craft room

just looking at all those pretty things together gives me shivers. LOVE the colors! it all started with the fabric. gorgeous!! and you know how much i love yellow, gray, and aqua as that has been my blog color scheme for awhile now. so it was natural that i wanted to surround myself in colors that i love and that look fabulous together. and you can never go wrong with flowers. in my book.

here’s the break down of my inspiration board:

-wall color is Graceful Gray by Behr {huge fan of Behr paint}

-fabric is Button Bloom by Waverly {very pretty line found at Joanns}

-spray paint colors are Aqua and Lagoon by Rust-Oleum {perfect for refreshing my thrift store finds like- a $3 chandelier and $3 chair}

-yellow circle mirror is from Hobby Lobby {seriously wish i lived next door to that , but alas, the closest is 1.5 hours away}

-white frame is from an antique store in Midlothian, VA {i’m pretty sure its NOT an antique… but great find anyway}

and as of last night, davis is done assembling my boxes from The Original Scrapbox. YAY!

plans for this week: stencil one of the walls and arrange the furniture in the room. and if i have time, start organizing the masses of crafting supplies.

so i’m not sure how i feel about black with the color scheme above. every room needs a little black, or so something like that. buuuut, not sure if its going to fit into my bright, cheery color scheme. what do you think? should i just stick with dark grays?

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    I have that fabric!! It’s my favorite fabric in the entire world! I’m afraid to use the rest of it (I bought out Joann’s stock of it) because I might never be able to buy more!

    Ohhhh I lovee these colors!! So beautiful! Maybe instead of black, you could do charcoal?! Close to black, but not quite there? Just an idea. Thanks for sharing, and God Bless!!

    What a tease you are! That is going to be such an awesome/cute craft room. Can’t wait to see it!!

    Love love love these colors and the fabric! Yes, definitely dark gray over black. Oh I want to decorate my craft room now!!! It’s kinda hard though because I have very little wall space and so I’m kinda of stuck with indecision. I can’t wait to see how yours turns out!

    Love the fabric! I am partial to those same colors. I think a little bit of black might make the colors pop. I always have to have some black in the room.

  11. 13

    I think that a little black would still be nice. Something about just gray seems a little muted (I even do love gray), but with your colors black will look cool too!

    The gray-yellow-turquoise is such a great combo – I don’t know if black would fit in or not? Maybe more dark gray would be the way to go . . . it’s really going to be lovely! (this is my 3-year-old’s new favorite word!! Lovely, isn’t it?)

    Oh such a gorgeous color scheme – it’s gonna be so fun to craft in there! That fabric is adorable. As for colors, I’d personally stick with grey, maybe darker, and avoid black. I love black too, and I think it would look lovely as well, but I think grey would help play up the tan/grey-ish pieces of the fabric more than black would. Whichever way you go, it’s gonna be so pretty! Cannot wait to see – and I’m sure you can’t either! ;)

    Love the new blog layout too! I was excited to see it since your new [totally cute] business cards were made to match, and I am just loving it!

    Love your new header, very professional looking! That fabric is perfect for you/CA! Can’t wait for the full reveal! I’m sure I’ll be completely jealous. ;)

    Love the colors – how can you not be inspired to create when you are sitting in a room which those bright yet calming colors? I would put a dark beige or light brown instead of black :-)

    I JUST recovered a chair in this fabric for my own craft room! I love it! OOH, such a compliment to my style ;)
