ourspacetocreate-stepsWhat is #ourspacetocreate?

We sell a range of goods but vintage school desks are at our core and what we love most. They each tell a different story with their unique scribbles and markings and provide a space to create and be you. We passionately believe that having a creative space is so important for children and adults alike. No matter how big or small we all need that nook, desk or corner to do our thing.

With all of the above in mind, we want to celebrate creative spaces and shine a light on their importance in lettings kids be kids and grown-ups to relax and feel inspired. We want this conversation to grow and become central to our story and something we as a brand champion.

How can you get involved?

We are asking people to share their creative space in their home, studio or place of work.

It doesn’t have to involve a desk, it could literally be an area you use to draw, read, get crafty, work or do the dreaded homework! We want to see a whole plethora of creative spaces that involve both kids and adults. The nature of a creative space means it might be a bit messy and we love that! It doesn’t have to be a perfectly styled interiors shot.

All you need to do is post a photo of your creative space on your Instagram feed and add the hashtag #ourspacetocreate

We will share our favourites each month and then pick one person to win the monthly prize. (To be in with a chance of winning you must be following us, @blueticking and the prize giver.)

June prize: A ‘Never settle petal’ print from the wonderful  Basil and Ford. The print is printed onto vintage book plates and is an original floral illustration by P.J Redoute.
