Creative Living Spaces with Wolves Wool

In my recent interest of designing a creative space for me to work in, I’ve reached out to a few local businesses that specialize in home decor! The first is Wolves Wool. Based in Victoria, they design incredible macrame pieces + sell incredible vintage pieces for your home. A creative delight! Elaine answered three of my questions along with a few photos! Here it goes!

1. As a creative person, how have you created a space for you to be inspired?

Elaine: It is hard to stay inspired in a stagnant space. I am always changing and tweaking my home. Creating a space is so much more than the material things you buy, it’s about creating a mindset where you feel comfortable and productive. I like to find and make things that provide me with a sense of coziness. I love picking flowers when I am walking my dog and displaying them around the house. (They usually die in like a day, but that’s besides the point.)  Your space is an extension of you, similar to the things you wear. Make your space as unique as yourself. I’ve found a lot of inspiration from various instagrams and websites like apartment therapy, but I’ve always adapted it to show my taste.

2. What is the most important thing to integrate into your home/workspace in order for you to feel motivated?

Elaine: I love to listen to music or podcasts while I am working from home. I cannot stand silence, it makes me feel secluded.  Without upbeat music I’d probably just watch Netflix all day. Also a big breakfast. That’s number 1. 

3. Do you think functionality and creativity can live in the same space? How so?

Elaine: A space needs to be functional before it can be anything else. You only need to walk into a chair so many times before you realize this. Having a creative space to me just means a space that you can be creative in. So fill it up with pieces and shapes that inspire you. I have a shelf that I continue to add treasures to (some are for sale on my Etsy shop). I also have a lot of plants that keep my space feeling fresh and help filter the air. 

Thank you so much Wolves Wool for being a part of this blog! Look below for more images. 🙂
