I lurk on craftster a lot but I have a new studio area (moved houses) and it's so pretty that I was dying to share!

First, it's in a house that was built in 1929 and have lovely plaster walls, hardwood floors, and wood trim I need to strip still due to gobs of paint on it.

This photo is part of my business area. The singing flowers are based on Alice in wonderland and the cabinet hold pinback button parts.

A close up of how my button parts are organized.

This is where I craft and work on the computer. All my crafting supplies are on the shelves above me and then the finished products are put in my closet next to me if need be. I use a lot of vintage travel cases to hold my supplies and found I can write on them with a dry erase board marker

These doors lead to my bedroom. They were originally clear glass and that was bad considering I have kids and a roommate that would come in to the studio. The house is old and my doors don't lock so I put scrapbook paper over the window for now. The red thing above the door is a kissing ball I made

My favorite thing in the room. I love this weird vintage vase! Test tubes and wire? Perfect!

what a perfect scheme!
personally I think it has a definite 1920s feel it might be the red and brown with the flowers you chose
eventually instead of the scrapbook paper maybe you can try some of that window paper to make faux stained or frosted glass not that the paper looks bad or anything

I love your space, and the singing flowers.  I love that movie/book.  My dd's middle name is Alice due to that movie and a long story. 

I would love to do a swap!

Sooo pretty! I painted one wall in my place the same shade of dark brown. I had since regretted it until I saw your color combination. Thanks for the inspiration. Love your style. Where did you find that beautiful buffet-type table?

Thanks for the room love Smiley

The buffet table is actually something I bought while living in Japan. I've never seen anything like it since but it's perfect for holding massive quantities of supplies.

I love the idea of the frosted paper stuff. I had thought about doing like mercury mirror paint too. It could turn out really well... or really really bad lol. I'm willing to try though.

I didn't paint the room the chocolate brown color but I was way way too lazy to repaint it when I moved in. The other rooms were seriously fug and I've already repainted too much. I wanted a break so we left it the brown color. I'm glad I did though because it's totally grown on me
