Not only is there a beautiful magazine called Where Women Create, but these next two books, which I discovered through fellow bloggers, Where Women Create : Inspiring Work Spaces Of Extraordinary Women by Jo Packham and Where Women Create : Book of Inspiration, by Jo Packham and Jenny Doh, provide plenty of inspiration.
I remember buying them when I had no creative space except for my kitchen table. These books had pictures I dreamed and drooled over. I thought these books would be appropriate this week, since Karen from My Desert Cottage’s Where Bloggers Create linky party is coming up on July 12th.
Some names of those featured may be familiar to some of you. Remember Kitty Bartholomew? I just loved her show on HGTV.
Last week’s design book feature, Carolyn Westbrook, is also featured in the Where Women Create : Inspiring Work Spaces Of Extraordinary Women. These first pictures are from this book.
Jo Packham’s own space.
Some others featured are: Wendy Addison, Anna Corba, April Cornell, Cheri Ellis and Cindy Ellis, just to name a few.
So many great ideas for your own space in these books.
Beautiful rooms filled with lots of inspiration for creativity.
These next few pictures are from the Book of Inspiration. This book features Ashley Carter, Lori Oles, Pam Garrison, and many more.
Great use of spaces that look like attics, basements, spare bedrooms, dining rooms, any place you can set yourself up to be creative.
I know that blogs and Pinterest can give you plenty of pictures with ideas for your own creative spaces, and Karen’s linky party is a great place to get inspired, but there is nothing like having a book that you can just pull off the shelf and look at the pictures up close and in-depth.
