After posting about home work offices that inspire me (here), I started looking at my own space and micro-analyzing every detail. I spend endless hours in here writing, editing, researching, making connections, sealing deals, reading and dancing to whatever's blasting from my speakers.
I took these pictures to give me a better look at what I have and what I want to change about it. As it stands, it all makes sense to me and is very user-friendly. But, there's something missing. I haven't quite put my foot on it, but there's something keeping me from giving my business the 200% I used to.
I love the green walls I painted. I love the chair (though a Missoni one would be uberly fabulous --do not the floral vase from the Target line!). And nothing inspires me more than the open windows lacing entire sunroom which has Cathedral ceilings.
But, perhaps the vintage wood English desk chair could use reupholstering? I'd been after a chair like that for over 8 years and finally found this one in Ybor City, Fl. I love it, but I'm thinking it could use some sprucing. A different desk lamp, maybe?
Who knows. It's all about the mood. And right no, my mood is inclined to streamline a bit more and get rid of some "small" things and invest in some bold, statement pieces. After all, this space is my money-maker. It's where my biz grows. Without nurturing the space, I can't grow!
What are your thoughts? If it were yours, what would you change, rearrange, add, remove, etc...? I'm curious, lovelies!
