But the reality is that most of us create in spaces that are put together piecemeal with a jumble of tables, drawers, cupboards and storage boxes – a mend and make do approach, you could say.
I work on one side of our living room, with the cutting-sewing-working-dining table the divider of the space. And I’m grateful for the dedicated workspace.
But it doesn’t stop me from imagining my dream studio and the elements that make it so, such as light:
This wall of glass is from the portfolio of São Paulo architect Vitor Penha, found on Pinterest but originally from the Desiretoinspire blog. It lets in a huge amount of natural light, but not blindingly direct sunlight – perfect for hand embroidery.
