This space, found over at Design*Sponge, is where LA-based jewelry maker Melissa McClure does her work.

The deep gray matched with the light wood hues from the drafting chair and corkboard give this space a refined look. While dark rooms can get depressing, there's something about this color tone that makes the space feel cozy -- a space you'd want to curl up on a overstuffed chair, a good read, and a roaring fire. Maybe that's where Melissa transports herself to when she's working long hours on her jewelry line.
