I rarely read craft books from cover to cover, genuinely reading every page, but I did with this one. There is a lot going on here. The very beginning has profiles of several professional designers or crafters and their studio space. There are also some redesigns of general household spaces, sections on creating crafting space in closets, rooms with another main purpose, a rolling cart, or other ideas. The biggest thing the book has going for it is lots of creative inspiration for craft storage ...more

Studio Spaces invites you into the crafting studios of six working artists. Through the pages of this book, you will see different storage and organization ideas that can help you tackle your own space.

With many photographs and descriptions of how they utilize their studio space, what I enjoyed the most is how they incorporated the rooms to function amongst their family. These are not areas tucked away in the dark corners of their homes, but right out in the o

This little book is full of beautiful photos, great projects and wonderful ideas for setting up your own creative space. I intend to use quite a few of the ideas myself.

Pretty pictures and good ideas, but nothing stands out at new or revolutionary.

Lots of cluttered, colorful rooms and objects. Most of it made out of cheap materials, and I don't mean that in a good way. Most of these rooms and ideas were the same from page to page. So much color. My eyes are burning. I find it hard to believe that many people will find much inspiration here.

Don't touch my creative place.

This book is visually inspiring. Anyone with a hobby knows that having an organized space with tools and supplies easily accessible and sufficient workspace is essential. Most of the organizational options can be found at Ikea or The Container Store.

Highly recommended for people who want to get all of their crafting junk under control! Also recommended for people who would like to organize a beautiful home office or workspace. Many of the ideas would work well in a kitchen or playroom.

It had some great ideas for transforming small spaces and organizing a home office, however, I really didn't like the style choices. The schemes were very mod and "fluffy" for my tastes but, again, good ideas to perhaps impose my own style with.

This is an inspiring book. Yes, some of the features are beyond my means to be able to do, but others are simple and down-to-earth. I especially like the vintage styled rooms/crafts and unique container ideas.

There were some clever ideas here and some room for thought, but nothing amazingly different. The studios are awesome - but do people really work in them?

Excellent ideas for organizing craft and/or work space. Repurposing/recycling ideas too. I will want to look at it again and again!

I love some of the ideas in this book and found it a good read. It was not how ever one of my favorite craft books.
