Aren't these workspaces wonderful!? One of my first pinterest boards was my Where to Work board, I'm obsessed with a space that lets natural light in, has all the tools and toys that get me excited to work and that allows me to spread out with all my lists, my phone and of course, my giant coffee mug.
Recently, I moved my desk from a corner in our hallway into the living room. I'm now tucked in between the noisy radiator and our large drafty windows and so far, it's great! I kept finding myself hunched over the coffee table trying to edit images on a 13 inch laptop instead of sitting up and working on my 27 inch iMac. Moving my work station felt so refreshing that I finally gave in and purchased a subscription to Adobe CC, updated to Yosemite, and bought a new chair and filing cabinet.
While my space isn't quite as lovely as the ones pictured above, it seems to be doing the trick so far.
