Inspiring Work Spaces

I have a confession to make:  I can spend hours looking at other people’s workspaces. No, I’m not a stalker.:) I just find great inspiration in how creatives arrange furniture, decorate their rooms, and generally make their surroundings conducive for work.inspiring workspaces

I love bright, airy worskspaces with huge windows that bring the outdoors in.

I love seeing cabinets or shelves that are cleverly organized.

I especially love it when a workspace reflects the creativity and ingenuity of the person who owns it.

Food for Thought:

“It starts with this: put your desk in the corner, and every time you sit down there to write, remind yourself why it isn’t in the middle of the room. Life isn’t a support system for art. It’s the other way around.”

-Stephen King
