workspace inspiration

As I mentioned in my last post, I've wanted to make over my workspace for some time now, years even.  For one reason or another, I have managed to push it to the bottom of my lengthy to-do list.  Honestly, I think it was easier to overlook this makeover as a priority since my current workspace is functional.  However, functional and okay are not words that creatives typically use to describe their workspaces.  Sure having a workspace that is functional is important, and even necessary most days, but it shouldn't decide the overall look and feel of the space.  I really want my new workspace to be simple, clean, inspiring and one that facilitates creativity.  After all, that's what it's meant for, right? Below are a couple of inspiration boards that I have compiled to help me create the kind of workspace that I have envisioned for carrying out my creative endeavors.  I started this process with a few staple items that I wanted to incorporate into the design of the space. Somewhat unintentionally, I ended up with two different design options, both of which incorporate these staple items.

option 1 / clean, subtle, and a bit romantic

01  knobs via anthropologie / 02  filing cabinet via cb2 / 03  blush peonies by karen buckle photography via the lane / 04  awesome mouse pad via freshly picked / 05  lindsay letters' be true canvas / 06  white desk via west elm / 07  eames eiffel chair via dwr / 08 scootin' print via minted / 09  capri candle via anthropologie

option 2 / clean with a little more spunk and bold pops of color

01 knobs via anthropologie / 02  filing cabinet via cb2 / 03  succulents + neon planters via wind and willow / 04  awesome mouse pad via freshly picked / 05  lindsay letters' be true print / 06  white desk via west elm / 07  bellini chair via dwr / 08 ampersand print via ampersand design studio / 09  capri candle via anthropologie

I'm curious.  Which one is your favorite?
