Pinterest Studio Challenge

If I could build my own craft room, I would install those tricked-out shelving units that Belle found in Beauty and the Beast. Who wouldn’t love to glide on a ladder from your fabric tape collection to your meticulously color-coordinated paper stacks?

We’re giving you the chance to dream big and design your own virtual studio space. Enter our Pinterest Studio Challenge and create a pinboard that reflects your ideal crafting studio! Do you see yourself out on your front porch, with your paints, brushes, and all of nature at your fingertips? Or would you prefer a multi-story crafter’s pad, each floor dedicated to one kind of hobby?

Whether simple or sumptuous, we want to see what kinds of spaces would launch your creativity through the roof. Pin everything from mural-sized calendars and funky rugs to artistic lamps and innovative organizational systems. Please compose a short paragraph that sums up your creative vision and include it in the description of the board. Comment below with the link to your boards so we can find your dream studio!

The Pinner with the most creative and innovative board will be awarded a $25 gift certificate to The Shoppe to spend on products to help fill up your creative studio, and two runners-up will receive a copy of Where Women Create Summer ’12*. Take a look at our sample pin board to spark your interior decorating vision!

*Contest is open to U.S. residents only. Deadline for entries is July 30, 2012.
 
Update: Congratulations to Kim Collister! We loved the beautiful colors of both the interior and exterior of your dream studio, and the fun, upcycled ways to store supplies. We will be in contact with you regarding the details of your prize.

    you can find my DREAM workshop laid out in my BOARD above…oh if only someone would drop a million dollars in my lap so I could create it.

    I want a roomy space with spots for all my supplies but something visually pleasing so that everything could be kept out. Also peg board is a MUST so I can again leave my supplies up on off my work space but still be easily accessible. I just want comfort with a little bit of style – I want to produce more rather then be searching for my supplies.

    keeping my fingers crossed

  2. Of course I want to play! What fun. Here is a window into my dream studio: http://pinterest.com/dianneft/pinterest-studio-challenge/

    At my old house I had 4 craft rooms with different crafts in each. Now I have a tiny space in the kitchen and the rest in storage or sold. I miss it! These are a few of my desires!

    How fun is this!? Can’t wait to go check out other dream spaces! My favorite thing to do in the whole world :0)

  5. Laura Obiso says:

    I have a small studio but it’s all mine. I love different styles. Most important is cozy comfort and function. I’m planning to redo my studio so this is perfect..I’m having fun dreaming…
    Here’s the link to my favorites:

    Love collecting ideas for studio spaces. I currently share our family room space for creating – but dream of more space one day.
    My board is here:

  7. Dawn Sansone says:

    I just love, love, love this challenge. anything I can get my hands on with eye candy of people’s crafty spaces really get me going. Pinterest and your magazine Where Women Create being at the top of that list.

    I go between wanting a cottage shabby look for my studio to going industrial to go 40-50′s retro. As long as I have plenty to look at for inspiration, a place for everything and unique storage solutions such as vintage bubblgum machines I’m sold.

  8. Shannon says:

    So how do I actually enter the contest?

  9. My Dream studio would be more about color and design, things that inspire me, more than the organizational side of it. I can work pretty much anywhere. I am good at re-purposing items to organize. Just give me a space where I am inspired by color and things I love and I am in Heaven.

    Here are some of my favs:

  10. Creatrix space at the Design Studio of the Gods!

  11. Shannon says:

    Yes, I do.

  12. Barb Nichols says:

    Here is the board with my current studio http://pinterest.com/barbnichols/my-studio/. I’m getting ready to move down the hall to a new bedroom and can’t wait to pull together a new space with all the wonderful ideas pinterest has to offer. Here’s my favorites. http://pinterest.com/barbnichols/studio-ideas/

  13. Mo says:

    You know, the studio I have right now is pretty inspirational to me as is. But of course if I had unlimited resources in a perfect world, I would love to put together a dream studio… the main ingredients would have to be light and LOTS of color and vintage pieces for storage. Here are a few of my ideas

  14. Cydney says:

    Once I get my head wrapped around a jewelry project, the funcionality of my studio is the most important. When I walk in, getting ready to play, I need inspiration, support, comfort, and eye candy.

    My dream studio has room, but not too much open space, a nook or two, one for reading, thinking, contemplating, drawing, designing, and an occasional nap. The other would be the “office” area for research, inspiration or supplies, for correspondence and contact with the outside world.

    I need light that can be controlled so that it is not harsh. I need an outside space to breath and look up. Sometimes, I need to let my mind go blank to fill it up.

    I need personal artifacts that remind me of someone or something.

    I need time more than anything!!!

  15. Oh my goodness…I want everything in my craft room. My husband calls it my craft shack and right now this is my inspiration board for all that I want it to be. Mainly I want it to be organized but who knows if that will ever happen.

  16. Judith Davis says:

    I have been carried away, I’m afraid, and would probably need a loft in the garment district of NYC to house all the wonderful items I’ve pinned on my Dream Studio board.

    I’m still adding furniture and other items, so it is a work in progress, to be sure.

    This has been fun! Reminds me of when I was a youngster, my mother would give me a Sears & Roebuck catalog, a pad of paper and a pencil, and I would sit for hours making lists of all the things I would buy if I had the money….actually, things haven’t changed a whole lot in over 60 years…I still dream of having the perfect space for all my wished for treasures!

    Great! Then all you need to do is create your dream studio on a pinboard, and include the link to your board in this comment section.

  19. Valerie says:

    Through out my life I have always been attracted to the bright & bold colors of the world. Over the past few years as I have worked to develop my crafts I find that I’m captivated by the soft, muted colors of the shabby chic world. I adore bringing life back to an old piece and incorporate it into my world. When designing my board for my “dream” studio I found myself captivated by the shabby chic items I found on the web along with a few bright/bold pieces that I felt would blend in nicely. I hope to one day bring this studio to life (I have to win the lottery first). I’m still adding but I hope you enjoy. http://pinterest.com/vfimple/studio-challenge

    http://pinterest.com/emily477/my-dream-studio/. I pinned a variety of the sort of things I’d want in my studio. The description on the board tells the style and uses for it. I have a small shed in my backyard so I could make a VERY mini version of it. With Pinterest, I can dream and plan with visuals. It’s great!! http://pinterest.com/emily477/my-dream-studio/

  21. Retta says:

    Oh boy, did I have fun with this challenge! Wait until you take a look at my board….I’m not sure what I’ve done is what you had in mind :)

  23. This was really fun putting together my dream studio! I love old, distressed things which work well with my mixed media art. Here is my board! http://pinterest.com/pennystamper/studio-space/

  24. This was great fun. I love to work with fabric, sewing for myself, my home and gifts. I also work with paper, repurposing home decor items with decoupage. Clay is another passion – love to make modern and reproduction Medieval and Renaissance jewelry. Thanks for helping me discover my vision on this board – now I can make it happen! Here’s a link to my board – http://pinterest.com/mommawitch/studio/
