Wishcasting: Space

wishcastingI'm wishcasting again with the divine Jamie Ridler. This week Jamie asks, "What space do you wish to create?"

There is a little room off the back side of our bedroom. It sits on top of the garage with slanted ceilings that follow the roofline.

A few years ago, we set it up as a studio with my husband's drawing table, a window seat that he built, a futon from my single years, an old hutch that has followed me since my teen years, and some other odds and ends.

It's a stark little space with plain white walls and a bamboo floor which we laid. It's not the most temperature-controlled of spaces. It gets hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

I find that we just don't use it as much as we could.

I wish to make that space more usable. More loved. I wish for it to be a quiet retreat in which to create. Perhaps a place where I can sit with my computer and write. I wish for it to be a comfortable and welcoming space.

I'm not sure what it's missing or how to take it from "eh" to "ahh." I just know it needs love.

So, that's my wish. What's yours? What space do you wish to create?

  1. Hmmmm. Seems like there ought to be some way to make it work. At least by starting with some paint, eh?

    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too!
