Today I wanted to share with you guys a little tour of our home office. At first, it was full of leftovers, pretty much anything that didn't fit with the rest of the house. It was the dumping grounds for every item that didn’t fit into all of our other spaces. And lucky for me it happened to be a lot of black and white, so I decided to paint the walls white, and go with it. I will have to admit the white walls are not my favorite, but gives me the freedom to change things up and allows me to mix in whatever colors I'm in the mood for. To make a long story short, I ended up pairing down some of our extra accessories and clutter and created an office that is now become one of my favorite places in the house.
Here are a few photos of our home office:
As you can see from the photos we have two very large work spaces, a large desk and an old drafting table. This allows me to spread out and keep my crafting separate from work at the computer desk. It also allows me to do different things at the same time or to make a mess, if I would like. Keeping work separate from play definitely keeps me inspired and productive when I’m working at home.
Another thing that keeps me inspired and productive is having a place for everything. Mason jars, trays, metal baskets, basically anything that will corral supplies or clutter gives me a much better peace of mind and keeps me less distracted. It also allows visibility and access to supplies when I need them.
Something that keeps me inspired to work is fun artwork and inspirational quotes. I change out the frames all the time to match the seasons or the mood that I'm in. It's always great to see good reminders around you that you can do anything you can put your mind to.
My favorite part about this home office is the natural light that comes in during the day. Along with the white paint it keeps things light and bright and helps me to focus.
What do you love about your work space and how does it keep you inspired? Remember, it doesn't have to be immaculate or perfect; it just needs to reflect you and your style.
