This is... the space in which I create

I was so excited by this weeks This is… theme thought up by Quilting Mick because it motivated me to do something I've been meaning to do for ages - put more up on my workspace wall. I have so many postcards by amazing artists from the Design Festa, so yesterday was the perfect time to do it.

So, this is, my space. Let's not use the word "manic"....


I still dearly miss the studio I had in Australia, with two walls of window with lovely soft natural lighting, but this space is still very special to me. I used to share it with my husband, until one day the dear man decided that he'd let me have it to myself. Now it's my own space to mess up (a lot of the time) and to keep tidy (sometimes) when I want.

I hung the postcards with fabric covered wooden pegs (bamboo - sustainable wood) and strung them with thin strips of vintage kimono fabric.




I also bought this cool room divider. It has adjustable poles that push into the floor and the ceiling to stay put. While I didn't need to divide the room as such, the mesh frame gives me so much extra hanging space. There are a bunch of hanging baskets on the other side too.
It's getting close to bedtime, but for a little while, I'm going to go and check out everyone elses spaces. Thanks for a great theme Quilting Mick!

That looks like such a nice room (gosh that sounds so bland...). It's a warm, welcoming room and makes me feel good.

A very clever divider indeed. And pass on a hug to that dh for giving you your space.

Love your gorgeous studio! Those fabric covered pegs look fabulous and that room divider is really clever.

Wow - what a gorgeous space. The more I see of other people's spaces, the more embarrassed I feel about my own. I really should have at least tidied it up...
You have a really lovely design aesthetic, and it shows in your space. Beautiful :)

I love your space too-so organised and cheery. Those cards are gorgeous and they are displayed so well. How kind of your husband to recognise that you needed your very own area-what a sweetie. Your bags hanging up look awesome.

p.s. That's SO cool that you got to meet Patrick face to face. I saw on his blog that he was there, and I had wondered if you'd crossed his path.

I love the way you have hung your postcards - they are very eye-catching. And the room divider is a great idea and the perfect opportunity to use limited space and display your beautiful bags... Great ideas.

I like the hanging postcard idea. (my favorite card is the one with the bun in the oven...that's an awesome drawing) And I'm quite jealous of you having a whole room to with as you please. I'm gonna have to work on that

Your studio is fantastic! It looks like a really inspiring space to work in. You've done a wonderful job of making room for yourself in a teeny-tiny Japanese world :)
