Color for the Crafty

Often created by ‘borrowing" underutilized or unconventional space within the home interior, today’s hobby and craft areas continue to surge in popularity when an interior redesign project is undertaken. As the nature of these spaces represents an area where creative juices are endlessly flowing, let your imagination run wild as the interior redesign takes shape! 

The enormity of hues offered by existing paint manufacturers provides an unlimited amount of color combinations, depending upon the ambiance that you wish to display within the hobby space. If your particular hobby lends itself toward a specific color or combination of colors, why not incorporate the color grouping as the basis for your room design? For instance, outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and fishing all lend themselves to earthy, natural colors. Forest green, sandy brown and sky blue would be an example of a preferred color grouping for a nature enthusiast that prefers the outdoor landscape. 

If your hobby space is "shared" as part of an existing room there are a couple of color options to consider. One idea is to incorporate a similar (or non-competing) color scheme that is apparent within the room. In this case, the hobby room takes on the color persona of the room where it exists. A second option would be to highlight the craft space by means of a decorative divider, using color to designate where the existing room ends and the hobby area begins. In this case, a folding screen or shutters can be painted and serve as a focal point, representing the entrance to the hobby or craft space. 

Since Hobby and Craft walls tend to ‘attract’ marker and crayon marks, handprints and other stains, using high quality eggshell or washable sheen paints offer real advantages for keeping the surrounding areas clean and looking new.
