It’ll soon be a year since I started writing for Design*Sponge, and the same amount of time since I shifted from working in an office to mainly working from home. During this past year I’ve come to realize just how important our workspaces really are, and how much they can inspire the work that we do.
I’ve always been one to decorate my desk at work and make it my own, but there’s something extra special about creating a personal office space at home — the options for creative and fun solutions are only limited to one’s own imagination. My current workspace is an antique secretary desk located in the hall of my one bedroom apartment. It has dents, scratches and signs of various artistic endeavors that punch up the charm factor.
Lately, I’ve been looking to add some art and lighting to make my little nook an even more inspiring place to work from. To get new ideas, I’ve browsed our archives for offices that feel both unique and surprising. These 12 cheerful workspaces are bound to get the creative juices flowing! — Sofia
