creative space needed

Today is one of those days where I feel inspired to DO something, to create something…to just take my mind off of the everyday work at hand and enjoy a quiet project. It’s been a crazy work week and…what? It’s only Wednesday?!

I’m sitting at my desk with a cup of hot tea and a sleeping dog at my feet, looking all around the room trying to decide what to tackle next. My office needs a complete makeover. We painted this room before we moved in, but that’s about all that’s happened in here. I have temporary drapes up to have some privacy and my desk is covered with work computers and notes and paper…then there’s the hubby’s desk covered in tools and projects that had to be put on pause when we moved. The laundry is also down here, as well as a few boxes yet to be unpacked.

I have a blank canvas: white Pottery Barn desk, armoire and bookcase, and BM Edgecomb Grey walls.

This space needs life! I spend a lot of my days here now that I am able to work from home a few days during the week and it is just screaming for a creative touch. I need this space to make me feel inspired! Plus, I want to have a place designated to fun crafty and sewing projects too. You know, for those days like today!

Here are a few of my inspirations:


Better Homes & Gardens


Martha Stewart


Martha Stewart


homemade grits


Home Decorators


core77


Deming Design Studio


Apartment Therapy

 

Maybe my problem isn’t so much that I don’t know what to do…maybe it’s that I want to do everything at once!
Any suggestions?
