Beautiful inspiration from ‘Your Creative Work Space’
What does your work / creative space look like? Do you love to sit there and tinker away? I’m sure you’re familiar with mine, although more often than not I’m elsewhere – at the kitchen table, on the sofa, in the window, a nearby communal workspace or in a café. A wise friend told me recently that if you don’t use a zone (it might be for no other reason that it simply doesn’t feel right!), it means it’s either in the wrong place, or you have designed it in the wrong way for the task. So true! A few days later the beautiful book Your Creative Work Space: The Sweet Spot Style Guide to Home Office + Studio Decor by Desha Peacock landed on my desk. It was a sign! Known for her eclectic style and helping others see the possibility within themselves, their homes and personal style, Peacock advises that ‘your physical setting can either hamper or elevate’ your creative calling and offers tips on designing a creative workspace that will inspire the work you are meant to do. The book is packed with beautiful work spaces belonging to artists, designers, craftspeople, writers, and stylists – all of which will make you want to revamp your office in a heartbeat. Here are a few of my favourites:
Aren’t these spaces just so inspiring?! Does it tempt to you to pick up the book and make some changes? I can’t wait to get started – watch this space!
