Default help for decorating a stamping room

After 17 years of marriage and many many moves we have finally purchased a home where I have a room all my own for my stamping and scrapping supplies. The only drawback is that it's an interior room in an unfinished basement. I want to make it as bright and cheery as possible so I was hoping to get some ideas from all of you. It does have an overhead light and some nice lighting over the office area so I'm looking for decorating/painting ideas maybe a la Mary Englebreit style. Pictures would be great since I'm a visual learner. A million thanks in advance.

Add things to the room that inspire your creativity! Think about what makes you want to stamp.

Default decorating room

My suggestion would be to paint the walls bright, cheerful colors that will refelect the light well. I've taken over my son's room since he is off at college and the dark blue walls really absorb the light. Not a good thing. The wall infront of my desk is covered in shelves and peg board so that everything I need is right before me. I find I use everything more if it is where I can see it. Keep the walls simply painted and you can decorate them with all of your samples, card fronts and other wonderful creations you make and reveice. Most of all, make it a space that you LOVE being in.

Go to this link. There are pictures of a bunch of stamping rooms here. I wish I had my own. I looked at these and just drooled. http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...y.php?cat=3376

Default Lucky You!

I would paint the room bright. Use lots of lighting - get those GE reveal bulbs to help show true colors. I was looking at a house that had a craft room - it was painted a nice shade of green - almost the gable green. The Mary E. prints were in that room and it looked great! Good luck and happy stamping!
