Featured Room Designer: Gail from Gail Friend Designs

Thoughts on Organization: Getting organized was definitely my major New Years Resolutions this year. I spend most of my free time working in my studio area in my apartment. I was in my spare bedroom and was outgrowing it. So I went with a rather unconventional approach. In my apartment the living room and dining room are one open area. I made my living room my studio. I have my computer desk, art supplies, sewing machine, bookcases and storage in this larger room. I put my former dining table in the middle of the room for a work table. The former dining room is now a small sitting room with the TV and stereo attached to the studio area. This arrangement probably wouldn’t work for most people, but I live alone, so I figured why not? I have been so much more productive and I am really glad I made this change. I think at first most of my friends and family thought it was a crazy idea, but the get it now. I love it. I love using unusual items for storage. I have vintage suitcases that I organize and keep my patterns I design in them. I use old cigar boxes for ribbons and trims. I have a pink cupcake theme I am working on, so I have found glass covered cake plates for display. On my work table I have a cake plate with containers with my art supplies. The really pretty Valentine Candy boxes are great for storing beads too. I have attached a few photos. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to share.
