For the minimalist at heart….
Learn about Paperwaif’s journey from an unrealistic dream to a lifelong obsession with writing, designing, and creating directions that highlight positivity, homegrown styles, and whimsical moments.
Finally finished my home edit to include the perfect style studio and home office for the budding writer and designer who self isolates, locks the door and ignores the world, and stays up at all hours obsessing over failed novels, botched patterns, and those pesky details that derail a person’s success. While thoroughly discouraged and bummed with writing, emailing, and constant rejection, I finally decided to focus on something other than dismembered bodies, menacing mannequins, and the world plummeted to a humbling demise. From the other side, a simple but sweet home office now highlights my favorite pastimes. Since I am a waifly writer with little hope of actually becoming more than a basement dweller, I use whatever I can to create the look I want without spending much. Imagine old palettes and bookshelves, a twenty year old dress form, an Ikea desk that cost 50 bucks, and a trusty handyman that can construct anything (thank you by the way). Despite disliking pink, I went with a soft romantic shade that is barely visible in photos. Next, I added a couple of palettes, a mirror, light switches, a desk, and a few items from design school that I can’t live without. Obviously, not the upscale, sleek, in a city loft look that some may love. But for the middle-of-nowhere wallflower who loves an airy, minimal working space, this studio edit feels perfect for sewing masks, designing shift dresses, and writing yet another unsuccessful novel. To making failing look amazing…. xoxo Paperwaif
