I know I’ve said it already, but I am so grateful to have my very own studio where I can craft and create. It’s been amazing to have a place where I can work and have all my supplies close at hand. I highly recommend taking a look at your home with fresh eyes, and try to find a spot–even a small one–to become your own creative space. For a little extra incentive to do so, check out this funky yet lovely office that I found at House of Turquoise by Olive Interiors.
I love the way the pale walls and desks in this room serve as a clean canvas for the color drenched accessories. If you look closely, there are a lot of different colors and patterns in this room, but all that white keeps the room from looking like a cartoon. It looks like a place where it would be easy to be creative.
I selected five elements in this room, and found tutorials that can help you DIY each one. Check out all the ways you can get energized look of this office for less.
1. Colorful Focal Art
2. Fabric Covered Storage Box
In My Own Style offers a tutorial for covering a shoebox with fabric and a metal label holder that is similar to the pretty storage box in my inspiration photo.
3. Painted Ceramic Stool
Ceramic stools can be a charming addition to a room. If you can’t find one in the color of your choice, no worries–The Painted Hive has a tutorial so that you can paint it in just the hue you want.
4. Upholstered Bamboo Chair
If you love the look of a comfortably upholstered bamboo chair, The Happier Homemaker shares a way to get a similar look from a thrifted chair.
5. African Juju Hat
Feathery wall hangings like the one in my inspiration photo are actually African tribal headdresses that run anywhere from $300-1500. Love Maegan has figured out a way to craft a very similar textural art piece for a fraction of the cost.
