the art of an inspiring space






i've found that i'm most inspired when the space around me is inspiring. i also realize that there is little to nothing that is groundbreaking about that sentence. i'm always changing up the way my desk looks, whether it's because i find something new or just get tired of the way it looked before. recently, i've gotten rid of some of the clutter and tried to organize and create a simple look.

color, animals (owls, giraffes, cats...you name it), magazines, design books, and a lot of white. that's what is inspiring to me at the moment. oh, and antique fans.

what's inspiring to you?

  2. Oh my gosh, Lauren! This looks amazing - you have such an eye for design!

    I also enjoy a clean, non-cluttered space and agree that I feel like my mind is clearer and more open to creativity when I have a workspace that fits those requirements.

    Come do mine next? :)

  13. I have the exact same desk and LOVE IT! I love that you've left more space in the cubbies than I have, though! Makes me want to lighten them up.

  19. Very nice! I'll allow way more clutter on my desk at work than I will at home, but at work I have to be surrounded by pictures of loved ones and my kids artwork. I just layer the new on top of the old - it's fun to look back and see how they have grown just by the art that they give me for my office.

  20. I love bookshelves that aren't traditional, like the one in your pictures. My bookshelf has a vase with flowers, candles, picture frames, and more! I even have some shells from hubby's and my honeymoon.

  22. There are numerous benefits of shopping designer swiss rolex
    online. Online store permits you to shop for designer catier love
    conveniently without even stepping out of home. You can shop for the designer softshell jackets online and get it delivered right at your doorsteps. Also you will get great collection of designer discount gucci handbags to choose from which you might not get at traditional stores. Generally traditional stores have limited cheap chanel handbags collection.
