Could you imagine working in this studio?!

This week I officially went back after the summer (cue the daily posts!). As many of you know, before I decided to focus on my own projects I worked for a multinational corporation in a large open plan office over looking a car park on one side and a motorway on the other (guuuuh!). These days my work environment looks a little different. But I've learned that wherever you work there are always small updates you can do to shake things up a little and make it your own. Take Holly Marder's lovely studio in Delft, Holland. I featured it a while ago here, and now she's made some wonderful updates....both small and large. Let's take a peek.....

Could you imagine working here?!

A few items I know and love: Cove and Leaf lines posters. Anne Black hanging planters. Wicker chair from Tine K Home. Leaning rack from Walden. The fab side-cabinet doors are from Superfront.

Holly's bedroom is pretty lovely too (in case you missed it previously). 

See the full feature which includes 'six steps to a fun, fresh and functional home office' over on Holly's blog

For more office inspiration today you might also want to check out the creative studio of Katrin Bååth, a beautiful Italian design studio and the fabulous studio of an interior designer. Soooo fab! It wouldn't feel like work in any of these would it?!

Love these work links too:

My 'work' Pinterest board features over 600 lovely office, studio and atelier spaces - can you believe that?!

7 daily habits of highly productive people (strange, it doesn't include slow coffee and long breakfasts - not sure about this list?!).

This beautiful studio has been created by IKEA! The Alex drawers are a favourite of mine.

How lovely is this mid-century desk? Hurry though, it's a one off!

Now I feel like I need to update my office - again! How about you? I'd love to hear about your work space!

Have a lovely day!

The lovely home and atelier of an artist

This Friday I'm part of the  'Makers Spaces' blog tour, a new book by Emily Quinton. And it got me thinking about the wonderful creative spaces people live and work in. Johanna Bradford  and Kristin Lagerqvist shot this simply beautiful home and atelier in Varberg on Sweden's West coast a while back. With a sea-view on one side and forests on the other, it's the perfect place for Lisa Burenius to paint and enjoy life with her family - Petter and Eddie. The artist describes her interior style as 1930's with a personal twist, and loves to surround herself with personal objects, books and ceramics. Her advice is to 'listen to the house and trust your instinct. A home should be personal and warm, it should tell a story about who you are'. I feel her home is a perfect example of this, don't you?

It's wonderful to see an entirely unique home where the personality shines through. It's got soul.

Lisa has some great ideas too - I love the way the books have been arranged so that some are facing outwards and piled high. I also like the simplicity of the fern leaves in jam jars and the retro set of garden furniture outside. All in all, a truly inspiring home.

What do you love most about this space?

You can see more pictures here if you'd like. 

It's well worth checking out Lisa's website  too- I love the video showing her at work in the atelier.  Her work is available here.

I often dip into the art studio archive for ideas. And my office Pinterest board has oodles of work space inspiration. Hey, if we've gotta work we might as well make it pretty, don't you think?

Have a lovely day!

PS do you have a wonderful maker's space I can share on the blog this week? If so, drop me a mail!
