Working space issues

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

If you spend most of your day in your working area the least you expect is to be inspired by it and feel comfortable and pleasing while there. I'd definitely insist on a great lighting source (a must for non-headache working hours) and a large window to get you connected to the outdoors, nature even better (and provide you with ample daylight as it lasts). Secondly, an abundant place to work on, aka a large desktop, would get extra points. And storage. Shelves, drawers, cabinets, boxes, folders, anything. Taking storage into careful consideration is mandatory and, somehow, a non-ending duty. 
I still have some issues on my lighting in my home office. Although I get enough sunlight during the day, as soon as the sun sets I feel like a miner working under earth. I'm thinking of adding a floor lamp next to my desk (I love floor lamps!) and that means I've got some shopping to do (or, even better, some DIY).
How is your working space? Do you get a chance to update/redecorate it and what would you like to change?

  1. Goodmorning Eleni!Very nice woking environments..Any ideas for dinings rooms, too? I would love to see your recommendation, from your point of view...

  2. Hello Eleni,

    I couldn't agree with you more. I also feel like a miner at night especially when I am sewing. It is very hard to see and I usually have to call it quits earlier than I'd like because of it. I could definitely use some extra task lighting. The way our apartment faces, we get a lot of indirect light but very little sunlight except in the bedrooms.

    Hope you are feeling better today.


    Great photos.s

  3. I am in love with my workspace (especially the big window in front of me looking out at the beautiful redwoods), but am in need of some inexpensive overhead lighting ideas, such as the one above with the branch holding up the light.
