artist date # 3: creating the perfect workspace

13 Feb

At our old apartment my workspace was lacking. Translation- I had no workspace. I mostly worked sitting indian style on the living room couch with a pillow propped on my lap as my desk and my computer on top. It wasn’t the most ideal situation for a person who works out of their home half the time (by the way I realize I have never told you what I do for a living other than write and blog! So odd! I promise to write a post about it soon). Luckily our new home has a second bedroom and considering we don’t have kids and don’t have sleepover guests often we decided to make it a joint workspace. Dream come true!

I’ve had such fun daydreaming about how I wanted to decorate my workspace- one that is both functional and inspiring to work in. Inspiration photos I pinned:

office 4

office 2

office 5

office 7

As you can see from the pictures above I’m all about a white palate with pops of color. I love having inspiration boards around the desk. I love flowers or a plant to be incorporated and I love personal photos and trinkets to be seen. Last Friday I decided to spend my set aside artist date time unpacking office boxes and starting the process of building my space. So far I’ve ended up with this…


It’s a work in progress. So this is where you come in! I’d love love love to see pictures of your work spaces- please send them in! I’d also love any tips you may have for creating the perfect workspace. Help me decorate!

    I have a record player on my desk now. It changes EVERYTHING. Love the giant bulletin board!

    I love your artist date ideas! And I wholeheartedly believe in having a space you love. Trev redid our basement so that I could have my own office/studio. It’s here:
