We can’t wait to find out who the winner will be!! In the mean time let’s get to know Briar Stanley.
We are all very excited to see who will be the Brother Australia Grand Prize Winner- what an amazing prize pack. Can you tell us about your exciting styling and decorating service package that is part of the grand prize?
It will involve and in depth consultation with me initially, and after getting to know what the winner would like for their ultimate creative space, they will go shopping with me to source everything, including product from Brother and sewing furniture to really make the design come to life. Once we have everything ready to install, I’ll visit the space to pull everything together and help style the room.
Do you get many requests to decorate and style craft studios? Quite possibly the messiest room in the house – a creative mess of course!
I’ve decorated quite a few home office spaces in my time, but it’s a bit of a rarity for a client to have a house big enough for a dedicated craft room – so it’s quite common that a room will have two purposes – a home office with a second table/corner that is dedicated to craft or sewing. However, I did recently do a design to help a client convert a large timber garden shed in to a craft studio, which was a fun challenge.
It’s that one space in your house where you can let your creative imagination run wild! A room full of half finished projects scattered around, piles of craft supplies waiting to be whipped up into something special and ideas for future projects splayed across the wall with sticky post-it notes.
This is the room for creative mess, but it wouldn’t it be great if that mess was somewhat organised so there was actually space to start those projects you have been wanting to create.
While there are lots of ways to organise your space and lots of supplies to be sorted; let’s just start with 5 little ways to get you going-
