Monday Workspaces

June 13, 2011

Monday morning seems like an appropriate time to think about lovely workspaces (okay, yes, it’s almost afternoon here in Eastern Standard Time). Browsing through images like these makes me long for a home office, or rather a work-from-home job is really what I’d need in the first place. If I had a wonderful, inspiring home office like one of these I think I could be very happy with that.

As much as I love white walls, occasionally I see a room where the color on the walls works just perfectly. This blue is dramatic and calming and a great backdrop for this desk. By Kristin Rivoli Interior Design, via Houzz.

This is one of the more appealing uses of stacks of books that I’ve ever seen. Using books in this way is a trendy and unexpected way to decorate and can also be functional, as in this case they act as little side tables. I’ve seen people stack books like this in very orderly perfect columns, but I think I prefer this more haphazard look. Via atelier abigail ahern.

If you don’t have a spare room to set up an office in, a large enough bedroom can do the trick. I love how this workspace isn’t shamefully tucked into a dark corner (where it would be miserable to work) but is allowed to breathe right in the middle of the light-filled room.

A desk with a window view is always preferable in my opinion. The home of  Linneas Blommande Värld, via desire to inspire.

I love the objects that artist, designer, and stylist Lisa Madigan has chosen to decorate her desk with. It feels natural and personal. Via 79 ideas.

An Eames shell chair is always a good idea. (Well, at least so far I’ve never seen one look out of place.) I also love the simple wall hangings here. A fun display can be created with nothing but a long thread and some postcards. From the home of Lynne Testoni of Moore & Moore wallpapers, photographed by John Paul Urizar, via Design*Sponge.

Lots of white and lots of plant life. Of course I love it! Via I drifted off for a moment.
