My Workspace + Some Inspiration



Above is a little peek at how I spend my days... in my kitchen, on my laptop, drinking coffee and designing stuff. (I also just used a similar photo for my new Facebook and Twitter headers). I often dream of having an entire room to use as a workspace... here are some images that I've filed away for the day when I finally have my own home office.

I'm loving the mix of industrial style furniture with pops of bright color in the 
creates collaborative workspaces for entrepreneurs, providing them with infrastructure, 
services, events and technology so they can be inspired to do what they love.] 

This space employs the same tactic. Isn't that blue 
Eames Eiffel chair to die for? Via Ultralinx.

I would love to have a chalkboard wall in my future 
dream workspace. Image found over at Japanese Trash.

Gorgeous color combo at this desk. Via Everything Etsy.

Although it might not be the most comfortable choice, a 
lucite chair would look fantastic. Via The Clueless Girl.

A classic black and white gallery wall would be a great way to 
display photos from my travels. Image found at This Is Glamorous. 

And of course, I'd add some greenery to my desk. Via Domaine Home.

And if you're like me, you could look at inspiring workspaces all day. Although it may not be the most productive pastime, it makes you feel like if you had one of these spaces then you could be productive. So here are some more home offices to drool over.

Geometric Color Blocking Inspiration








Sources: 1 /// 2 /// 3 /// 4 /// 5 /// 6 /// 7

As evidenced by my previous post, I'm completely obsessed with these bright, geometric, color blocked kinds of designs. They've been inspiring me to do all kinds of fun DIY projects (one of which was my rock). Above are six of my faves.

Color Block Your Rocks





I picked up this smooth, oval shaped rock from a beautiful beach in Marblehead, Massachusetts that we go to pretty often in the summer - and it was just begging to be transformed. I've been inspired by these bright, geometric, color blocked sort of designs that have been all over the interwebs lately. So I went for it! 

There's not much to the tutorial; make sure your rock is clean, and use acrylic craft paints to create any design that suits your fancy. I did three coats on mine, but you could probably get away with two depending on the original rock color. And I used a cookie cutter in the shape of a tree to hold it up while it dried. Hey, you have to make due with what you have! DIY'ing at its best. I like these rocks too... so pretty.

10 Elegant Fall Decorating Ideas


Unlike almost every other human on earth, I'm not the biggest fan of fall. The main reason is because it means that winter is sure to follow and I very much dislike winter after maybe the third week of it. But I also get a little sick of all the hideous, over-the-top decorations that people fills their yards and homes with during the month of October. Now don't get me wrong, I love seasonal decor... but only when done in an elegant, understated and tasteful way. Like these gorgeous ideas:
