Nathalie here, and this month I am sharing my workspace/home with you all. Trust me, i was reluctant to share my apartment with you all, as I don’t have an specific work room. But I think many of you might identify with my area of work, also known as my living/dining/office room, so I welcome you all to my home!
Welcome to the DeSousa household (a.k.a my apartment – and yes!, we are in Christmas mood already!). We are blessed to own this large apartment with huge windows that let lots of natural light in.
This is our dining room, and our dining table doubles as my scrapbook table most of the time. In a few occasions, I have had to open a second table so that this is available for my teens and their homework. As you can see, my inspiration comes from my family, I just have to look up to see all the beautiful memories captured in the black and white canvases.
Whenever i am working on a project, I usually set my mat on the table (i own a few mats, but this American Crafts is one of my favorites).
When the kids were little, we purchased a small plastic toy box (it looks like a small sofa) that now houses all the paper pads and collections I own. Please don’t judge, I love pretty paper! Once the lid is on, there is usually an Iris case containing the kits I am working with. This bench/sofa sits next to the dining room table, and it is my littles (niece and nephew) favorite place to sit and play when they visit.
My dining room table is set next to the door that leads to our balcony. I use the back of the door as a way to organize, and store some of my supplies.
Since my work space is also my home, we have added furniture pieces that serve dual purposes one of them is storage for some of my scrapbook stash. Here is small slide show showing you some highlights from my space:
I hope this gives you an insight as where and how I work, and what inspires me. I love my work space since it allows me to be part of my family happenings while still doing what i love. I am sure many of you might identify with me. Though once one of the kids leaves the house, I will most likely used the extra room as a craft room! Time will tell 😉
This is all for me today, let me know if you have any questions.
Have a great day!
