Naturally, the room I get to have fun with is the circled room.
There are a few purposes that this room has to fulfill, the primary one being a spare bedroom, the second, and more everyday purpose, is a computer workspace and my craft room.
Here are a couple inspiration photos that I've saved over the last little while. Each one has an element or two that I'd like to incorporate, not necessarily the whole room:

Some other ideas I'd like to incorporate are:
On the wall opposite the closet (the left wall in the above pic), I'd like to put some sort of wall decal. Very tone-on-tone and neutral, maybe a cherry blossom tree, or other nature inspired image:
On the closet wall (the right wall in above pic), I'd like to make a frame wall of several frames of different items-some pictures, some treasures, some shadow boxes, etc:
Some other ideas without idea boards are:
- The dresser on the room board is going to be placed inside the closet as storage for the multitude of craft junk. Overnight guests don't really need a closet at all, and this frees up some floorspace.
- The shelves above the workspace are going to be 2 floating shelves and on the bottom one, NB's going to install some valance lighting for me for a cool effect and additional lighting.
- Clocks. I'd like to have a couple of the exact same clock set to different world times. Nothing crazy, but maybe 3 clocks with Ottawa, Australia and another time zone. Kind of like this:
I hope I'm not running in a million directions just because I actually have "artistic" license in a whole room in our house. I'm excited to have all of these ideas, but I don't want it to complicate the room or make it at all busy. Thankfully (or unfortunately more acurately) we've got a limited budget to keep me in check. Because of this fact, I'll only be able to do it little bits at a time, so I'll be able to evaluate as I go and hopefully be impartial enough to make it a space I'll eventually love. If not, none of it's really permanent anyways.
