This room was always the 'catch all' room. We used it as my husband's office, a place for the pack and play and changing station, and the drop zone where all donations and old toys sat until someone took them to Goodwill. One day I selected the pink diamond drapery fabric and off I went!
I wanted to create a fun and inviting craft room where my girls could let their imagination run wild but it had to be designed with storage and organization in mind as well. The pink diamond drapery was the jumping off point and I knew that I wanted a chalk board wall for them to draw and be creative.
This craft room is one of the first rooms that is seen when you come through the front door. So it had to be tastefully done so as to flow with the rest of the home's main level. The color palette is cute and fun yet inviting and soft all at the same time. The bookcase presents a more traditional element while the draperies and the silver rod and crystal finials are a bit more contemporary. It is a great combination of styles to create a young and current feel.
In this room I used a bookcase that I had in a previous room but it and the lamps were originally purchased through Lauren Nicole Designs. The storage craft table, chairs and bench were purchased from Land of Nod. The draperies and pillows were done through Lauren Nicole Designs as well. We painted the chalk wall with chalkboard paint and the art work was done by the two little inspirations Finley and Belle.
My favorite two items in this room are the chairs at the craft table because they have a shelf underneath the seat that is GENIUS! And I am in love with these draperies and the drapery hardware. They are the icing on this craft room cake!
The chalkboard wall is a big hit with the girls! It allows them to be free and express themselves. And the bookcase is great for baskets and organization. It is also great to have everything at their height to teach them how to put things away and tidy up at the end of each day.
