Most of you know that I work from home. I sometimes rent a desk at an office building not far from here, when I really have to focus (send important emails, work on spreadsheets, that kind of thing), but most of the time is spent behind my own desk, at my own home.
My space was always one that inspired me. The wall behind my desk was painted purple right when I moved in a couple of years ago, and it had been that way every since. Some paintings and drawings were hung on the wall, as well as an inspiration board where I kept all sorts of things that inspired me; like photographs, more drawings, quotes, notes – you name it.
Even though I still like it, it always felt a bit… cluttered. I was ready for something more clean, more crisp, more crochet inspired!
So after we returned from our little vacation to Germany, we went out and bought a big jar of white paint. It was time to kick the purple wall’s behind! I was amazed that it only took two coats (albeit very thick coats) of paint to get rid of the purple. While the paint was drying, I ordered a bunch (16 to be exact) of 30×30 cm empty canvases, for a special project. It took an afternoon, some thread, and a whole lot of patience, but it paid off.
Remember when I used to make weekly mandalas? Remember how everyone kept asking me what I would do with them? While on vacation, I had a light bulb moment; I should hang them on my white wall!
Now whenever I work from my desk, I can gawk at my lovely mandalas :) Here are some more peeks at my work space.
I love my new space; it’s making me want to work harder and create new things, and that, in my book, is definitely a plus!
I’d love to see more work spaces and creative places; leave me your links in the comments! :)
ps I’m working under the supervision of Lotso!
