Unique finds for your holiday table. We've got some good design for your next gathering. Get ready, set the table.

Inspired Workspaces

Posted on August 14, 2014 by Julia Reynolds | 0 comments

It’s that time of year…our summer vacations and weekend getaways are quickly winding down, although we are happily looking forward to the crisp, cool air and getting organized for fall. There’s something about the memory of buying new school supplies that makes getting back to work seem much more bearable. Whether your headed back to school or just refocusing old work habits, it’s fun to refresh your workspace. So with September's approach, we’ve put together some of our favorite workspace looks to inspire your creative study spot or home office.

1. Collected Inspirations: think collections not clutter. Tack or frame your favorite snapshots and prints to the wall. Organize that stack of favorite magazines and books. Surround yourself with the things that will inspire you the most but remember to keep these things organized and meaningful. [ Source: Ollie & Seb's House ]

2. Bedroom Bookworm: if your workspace is in your bedroom, make it a view you won’t mind waking up to----just because you have to work there doesn’t mean your desk shouldn’t be as inviting as your cozy bed. Make sure your desk compliments the rest of your bedroom’s decor and leave out the predictable office furniture. [ Source: Hanna's Room ]

3. Modern Simplicity: a minimal desk and shelves with a pop of color. Putting together this look doesn’t take a lot of designer-know-how. Head to the hardware store for couple of pieces of plywood to make a desktop and while you're there, grab some paint to spruce up that old filing cabinet. [ Source: est Magazine ]

4. A Tucked-In Nook: when you don’t have lot of room to spare, carve out a little spot in an unexpected place----try the end of a hallway or an unused closet. Just add some simple shelves and a stool and you’ll be productive in no time. [ Source: Elv's On Miminalism ]

5. Just the Basics: sometimes all your need is a place to collect your thoughts and type an email. A desk can look lovely in your living room or other main space when it’s not covered in junk. Keep the accessories simple and light. [ Source: French by Design
