We wanted to start 2014 on a fresh, clean page – living space included. For this reason, our New Year’s Eve endeavours didn’t involve partying with friends. We actually stayed in and got organized for 2014 in favour of a big night out. We put on our favourite music, celebrated with a little bubbly, and started organizing our space – more particularly our solarium aka office. If you do condo living like us, you can probably relate to the small quarters; it requires some clever organizing to make the most of the very little space you do have.
If you are a writer, photographer, illustrator, or any other profession of a creative nature, you probably find yourself working all hours of the day and night. We often work at night, as it’s when the creative juices tend to flow best. Converting our solarium into an office was the best thing we could have done – now we have a beautiful view to look out at for inspo, especially when the creative juices are NOT flowing. I recently hung a few of my favourite garments for extra inspiration, and plan to switch it up as it suits my style mood.
With only a 3×3 ft corner, we managed to turn one side of the solarium aka our version of a corner office into a pretty cool space for only $100 at Ikea. As you can see in the photos, the desk converts into an even smaller version, where you can store your laptop. Now that we are back from street scouting in Montreal and Toronto, we are excited and inspired to utilize this small, yet very cool solarium and share our street scoutings with you!
What about you? If you work from home, how do you utilize your space to keep the creative juices flowing?
