Design with Clarity
Oh how I envy you! I would love to have this! I would highly suggest that you right down exactly what you want to have in that room, do in that room, be in that room. And then, higher a carpenter that can build anything! You will want a lot of storage, even convertible storage that becomes a different room for whatever project your working on. (ie: if painting than, the crafting table would fold up and open the space for an easel and still or portrait. You will probably also need to have blackout curtains or window quilting to set up lighting for your painting subject. Then, maybe have the carpenter design an easel that folds up so you can convert back to a crafting area or sewing area...whatever you need. Also, create levels of storage up to the ceiling...stuff you use almost on every project at eye level, stuff you use once or twice a week above that, stuff you use once a month above that....shelving is your friend! & if clutter is your enemy, have them build doors or sliders that close the non-essential stuff out of sight. Have fun and use color and/or items that inspire your creativity!

I agree lots of storage (hidden) is a must in a craft/art room. I think the most important is lighting and it would be great if skylights and larger windows could be incorporated. At a minimum, lots of canned lighting. If it were me, I'd do white cabinets and even a white floor tile. Little color for décor for no distraction to your artistic creativity. (with the exception of art on the wall you have created). :)
