MAK­ING ROOMS

Sally Coulthard on cre­at­ing in­spir­ing spa­ces in Stu­dio: Cre­ative Spa­ces for Cre­ative Peo­ple

The Simple Things - - FRESH -

Sally Coulthard is very clear about why mak­ing phys­i­cal room for the things you love is the key to creativ­ity: “A stu­dio isn’t just a build­ing or a room, it’s an ac­knowl­edge­ment that what you’re do­ing is im­por­tant enough to de­serve its own space.” Not do­ing so is “a kind of self-sab­o­tage”. Here are all kinds of in­spir­ing stu­dios, from the bright and breezy to the coolly un­clut­tered, to rooms which are green with plant life – and where print­ing, writ­ing and up­cy­cling take place. She ex­plains how to make the most of what you have with stor­age ideas, light­ing sugges­tions, screens and di­viders, so that even a corner of a room, or a cup­board un­der the stairs can be a cre­ative haven.
