I’m one of those people who goes big and refuses to go home. Which is usually a great quality until I look around and realize that my apartment floor is impossible to see under the various boxes, clothes, or books that I’ve strewn around as I’m decorating or rearranging rooms to achieve that perfect aesthetic.
So I’ve found it important ever since college to have a workspace that’s separate from the craze of everyday life, a space that helps to stimulate the creative energies and helps me focus on what I’m working on. A tidy and clean desk helps me to similarly clear my mind and, because I reserve this space specifically for writing, I know that when I sit down it’s time to get down to business and not to be distracted by what’s new on my Instagram feed or whether to hang my new Warhol prints in my bedroom or living room.
Luckily those at WeWork understand the need for creative spaces and because of that offer shared office spaces all over the world (I’m not kidding, they’re everywhere!), so that whether you’re an entrepreneur, start up, or large company, you can reach your potential.
While blogging is not my full-time job, I am very passionate about writing and I’ve been a fanatic about photography ever since I worked for a photographer in high school. Which means that I spend most days when I’m not diving headlong into corporate America, looking all around me for inspiration and lugging my camera everywhere with me.
My desk, at any point in time, holds everything that I need to let the creative juices flow. These include my laptop, random notebooks that I’ve jotted ideas in, my camera, flowers, coffee mugs, mittens (I never know when inspiration strikes and I’ll be running out into the snow!), samples that I’m writing about, and pictures of friends and family. And to be honest, the only thing that I find myself lusting after is a white desk. I don’t know about y’all but I love the look and feel of a chic white desk and every time I see another blogger post a picture of her workspace I feel insanely jealous!
Do you guys have a creative workspace where you work? I’d love to hear what you’re dream workspace would look like!
