I recently came across this photo series of remote office desk setups. I love seeing other people’s spaces, especially ones where they do creative work.
I thought it would be fun to share my at-home creative space.
The second photo is from 2017, when I first realized the importance of having a space for creative projects. I still have the same wooden table, but donated the sewing machine because I didn’t use it often enough. I’ve since moved, but my creative space looks pretty much the same.
Here are the details:
What does your creative space look like? Maybe it’s your kitchen counter? The inside of a journal?
And if you don’t have a space yet, now is a great time to start making one. It doesn’t have to be expansive or expensive. Start small and cheap. Declutter a corner. Repurpose an underutilized piece of furniture.
This haven can be a corner of a room, a nook under the stairs, even a window ledge. It is a reminder and an acknowledgement of the fact that our creator unfolds our creativity. Fill it with things that make you happy. Remember that your artist is fed by images. We need to unlearn our old notion that spirituality and sensuality don’t mix. An artist’s altar should be a sensory experience.

If you do have a creative space, I’d love to see it! Reply to this email with a photo :)
