Wordsmith’s Collective Thursday – Creating a New Creative Space

October 13, 2022

I was given the opportunity to convert a bedroom into a creative space recently, and have been planning how I want the room to look and feel. The first task was choosing the paint colour. This is always the most important as colours are certainly mood changers. I found that green is a very good ‘creative’ colour, so investigated the numerous shades available. Eventually, I chose a soft green, which will bring nature in, when we are in the depths of a grey and white Albertan winter. To continue the theme of nature, I found a lovely mural of hanging leaves, which are easy peel and stick.

With help from my youngest, Emjay, we painted the room in just one day, after I had washed the walls and covered the woodwork with masking tape. Then came the application of the mural pieces. Deciding on their placement was the first decision to be made. I didn’t want a straight line on one wall, but just in a couple of places. I think they worked out very well.

In the next few weeks I will gather items of furniture to put in the room alongside my writing desk. I want a long craft table and more storage and possibly some kind of rug. Eventually, the carpet will need to be replaced, as the hired carpet cleaner was no match!
