    Very nice office! I especially like the kitties:)

  • I love that book-pages lamp shade, Natalia! If you ever do a how-to blog about it, please share the link with us here. 🙂

    • Thanks, Annie! It was very straight-forward. I bought Modge Podge glue and a paintbrush, and just plastered it over the lampshade. Very similar to papier mache projects, and lots of fun!

  • Princess Jones

    This was so cool. I felt like I was peeking into your life!

    • I’m glad you like the feature, Princess! If you know anyone else whose office you’d like to snoop through, please send them my way. 😉

  • Kevin James Breaux

    Love my office. Love it.

    • Me too! It’s so nice to have a masculine room to share here. And I adore how clean and organized it is. Not to mention the great natural light and one of the best uses of patterned carpet I’ve ever seen. Who wouldn’t love working in that office? =) You’re a lucky guy!

  • What a fun series. It is fun to peek into the work space of others and see where they draw their inspiration and motivation. Melissa’s spot is tough to beat, but I love a little something in each of these!

    • Thank you Jessica! I agree; it’s hard for interior design to beat the outdoors. Mother Nature has us all beat. =) But yes, I love elements of every space so far. I’m lucky to have such great spaces and writers featured on my site!

  • Oh, thank you for letting me know! I’ve fixed it; the link should work now.

  • Katy

    Can I send pictures of where I write? And awesome piece. Made me think of ways to spruce up my own writing space. 🙂

    • Hey Katy! If you’d like to send me a few sample pictures, my contact info is on this page, above, but I try to share offices that are unique in some way — and I have several lined up — so please don’t be offended if it doesn’t work out. Thanks for stopping by!

    You post all those beautiful work spaces and here I am writing my stories while sitting in my unmade bed in my PJs and listening to dubstep. I wish I had some beautiful inspiring place to work in, maybe then I could actually get some work done.

    • Well, let’s not underestimate the power of PJs. 🙂 We can’t all work in beautiful places all the time, shame that is is. That’s part of why I share these offices and spaces, because to me it inspires even when I’m stuck in a cubicle or computer lab or whatnot. Imagination is a beautiful thing!

    Dear Annie, can you explain me the relation between Emily Dickinson and Halloween? I can’t find information about this and I read you’re comments and I agree with you about poems and poetry. Can you help me? Sorry for my English.. I’m Italian 😅
