Workspace Dreaming


Do you know what happens when I have a few days to just relax and kick back? I start imagining the perfect workspace/office retreat. Don’t get me wrong, I love taking a break but I feel the time away gives me perspective about what’s important and what needs more or less attention. After awhile, I look forward to bunkering down in my home office/studio to reading, writing and blogging.

And I am already thinking about my New Year’s Resolutions and making 2013 the best year ever. First on my list of priorities to revamp the office this year. Do I aim for quirky French market? Or classic mid-century or maybe bright and playful?


The more I think about the modern home office, the more I think that I need workspace but I don’t need a dedicated space for my computer since I work on a laptop, it can easily be tucked away when not in use, leaving space open for writing and other projects. I’ve considered switching to a large round communal table as the central focus of the office with drawers, shelves and cupboards along the walls.

  1. My wish for my workspace this year? Keep it clean!

    Seriously, I’ve transitioned from a huge l-shaped combination of tables to a much smaller desk. I tend to write wherever I need to, and find that with an ipad I use my laptop a lot less.

    So for the coming year I guess I’m less focused on the workspace, and more focused on the work!

  2. Great post – now you’ve got me thinking. Your idea of a circular table is a great one!
    I want to generate more focus on my work in the coming year – learning from 2012.
