Erin Duncan Creative, Studio, Organisation

Home Studio Refresh

I’m feeling pretty maximum right now.
My cushions were launched and immediately sold out (Yay!! and standby for the re-stock!) and I found myself in a studio that was bursting at the seems.

There were boxes in every spare space. Product on every surface. Labels, tags, wraps.. and I still needed to work in here!

I had outgrown my current space but wasn’t ready to move out of my home studio. I continuously have to find ways to innovate with the space that I have. How can I fit more in? More equipment. More products. More shelf space. More desk space. More creativity and even more possibility?

There’s always a way.

I purchased a length of Solid wood table top from Bunnings and laid it across my current desk and draws.

Now I have a beautiful fresh large spacious tabletop, almost the whole width of the room. 


Another new addition is the Oak Look Bookshelf (thanks Kmart). This bookshelf is so popular, I actually stalked Kmart for weeks to get hold of it. #notevenembarassed

Now everything has it’s place again. 

The space is everything. It needs to have a feeling of flow and ease. Inviting and comfortable but uncluttered.
I am constantly moving things around, adding a new pot plant and switching up the art on the walls.

Organisation is key and there has to be a place for everything


One last thing, a little bit of luxury. A gorgeous soft rug under the table for my feet to rest on when I’m writing or painting. It makes all the difference. I often find my self sitting on the rug to meditate before I start painting. 


If you’d like to know more about how I keep my studio and my art practice fresh and flowing, this post is for you.
