A Not So Confining Space


I have been going crazy trying to organize and re-organize my studio at home. I have two bookcases that hold books and crafting supplies, but they dont match and it drives me insane. One is white with red on the interior and the other is ugly brown fake wood.

I have a big white ikea desk, a big black bulletin board, some little storage wall things that are turquoise and then 2 white plastic container things and a stack of 3 black crate things. I hate it. hate is maybe too powerful of a word, but it all really drives me crazy. I feel so good when I am working in an orderly space, and this space is not orderly or structured. I like the white and the turquoise, but have been missing at least one element to make the space feel cohesive, well obviously i need to paint the two bookcases to match already. But anway, I just realized what I was lacking besides structure and matchy-matchy-ness...

MAPS and GLOBES!
yaaaaay!
those are the final elements I need! I have been daydreaming about starting a globe collection for awhile, but haven't been able to decided where to hold said globes. And I love maps, but never buy any because I want them to have a purpose, other than the obvious maps for finding locations to travel to. I think maps may suddenly be an even greater guide being used as decoration, they'll help me feel directed in my creative space. YAY!

I am inspired by this great side table by Knack Studio
the map detail is perfect.
I totally need to obtain a little storage unit
and paint it turquoise like this one from Knack Studio!


love the globe collection and space of the folks at Somethings Hiding in Here

I'd really like to start a globe collection of different colored and sized globes as opposed to just the traditional turquoise based globes. I need variety.
I covet all of these...

GLOBES! Such a cool idea for decoration. They always make you feel like you're navigating your way somewhere neat, don't they?
Also, maps are great for lining drawers, wrapping gifts, framing and hanging, and covering a bulletin board (where you can stick pins in every spot you've visited!)
Hope those ideas help. :)
