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?
