The extension plans for our house include an upstairs studio which has been earmarked for ME!! It will be a long rectangle with a cathedral ceiling and is going to serve as my office/sewing room/TV room. Since having kids we have had to do without an office and when you run your own business it can get very frustrating. I also make the patchwork cot quilts that we sell at CHALK and with 2 shops now it is almost impossible to produce these in the limited space I have.
My intention is to have the office area and sewing bench up one end with a floating bookcase on casters seperating it from a 'den' where I can watch as much crappy television as I like without interruption.
I have threatened to have a door at the bottom of the stairs to which only I have the key and I think they almost believe that I will do it.
I can not begin to tell you how excited I am about this part of the house - I often find myself daydreaming about it and I'm petrified someone will tell me we can't have it as it seems to good to be true.
Here is the inspiration for the sewing area of my space - my dear friend Kris has an amazing studio in her home and I'm hoping mine is half way as inspirational as hers.
