Upon discovering her work on Etsy, I was instantly drawn to Dimitra’s charismatic owls. It was also my first encounter with the term “pyrography”, which I found means “the art of decorating wood with burn marks” (wiki). Needless to say, I explored her shop and found out so many more things to love. Apart from her owls, I found that her bears were just as charming as her whales and foxes. I absolutely adore her whimsical take of the woodlands!
Browsing around her online shop is such a happy tour. I can imagine how happier it would be to actually walk inside a real store and be able to touch and see these creatives in person. Dimitra personally makes her creations from her home in Argos, Greece. And it is such a pleasure for me to be featuring her work space here on the blog. If you have been wondering what it’s like to visit Decor Asylum’s work space, here’ a peak:
Although I am from a country known for its sun, sea and long summers, I love the winter cold months and the woodlands. That is where I “travel” with my creations; in lush forests full of tall trees, moss carpets and beautiful animals.
I create in my home but that doesn’t mean that I confine myself just in the home office. A sketch book is constantly at hand’s reach in the living room and of course I always declare any surface – inside or outside the house- restricted if needed for my work in progress. Thankfully both my fiance and dog are very understanding!
Thank you for taking the time to get a glimpse of my work space and thank you, Rachel, for having me over at your beautiful blog. — Dimitra, Decor Asylum
Thanks much for sharing your work space, Dimitra!
