Today is the sixth post of a whole week of posts that have been centred around organising your stash and planning some storage for your workspace this January. One of the best ways to decide how you want to organise your workspace is to take at look at how other people have organised theirs. Inside the creative studio by Cate Coulacos Prato is a fantastic book which does just that.
The book is set out into six chapters, each covering a different approach. For example there is one entitled “Small Space, Big Style” and my favourite, “Flea Market Flair”. There are hundreds of photos of the 35 studios that are featured from all around the world to inspire you and to show you lots of creative and quite ingenious ways of building a space to suit you.
What I like about this book is the variety of studios – they are not all custom built, glossy interior spaces – and you also get to meet the artists who work within them. This means that you find out how they work within the space and learn about their creative processes.
Each studio has a detailed floor plan and there is also great advice on lighting, personalising your workspace and hosting open studios events. The artists featured come from all sorts of disciplines, from jewellery to painting, from weaving to printmaking, so there is sure to be a studio that will appeal to you.
Inside the Creative Studio is published by Interweave Press and you can pick up your own copy from Amazon. Please note : The Amazon links in this post are affiliate links so if you buy the book through this link I receive a small referral fee.
The seventh and final post this week in the Sort, Store, Organise series will be published tomorrow and I will show you how I store all of my fabric scraps – those little bits and bobs that I can’t bear to part with!
