Workspace Inspiration & Giveaway Winner
On my list for this past weekend, source accessories for my workspace at the office. Yes, I’m returning to work full time and I want to make my workspace more reflective of my love for beautiful spaces. You could say I wear two hats, one as the marketing manager for a business consulting company and the other, as an interior decorator. Both hats blend creativity with value driven business principles and for that, I love them both.
I want to take my generic workspace from drab to fab by creating a more homey feel. I hope to accomplish this by adding a table lamp, artwork and some colorful accessories, all on a shoestring budget. Here are photos I’m using as inspiration…
Here are the items I’ve pulled together so far…
What do you think so far? Have you decorated your office workspace? Would you consider it? I would love to hear what you think. If you have already, I would love to see your space, send me pictures!!
The winner of the Wire Home Furnishing giveaway is…
Kerry at First Time Fancy!!! Congratulations Kerry!

I love all those work spaces, they look like they'd inspire productivity.
I spoke on the women's post panel for "From Drab to Fab: How to Make your Home Office Space Fabulous and Fantastico" (or something or another title) and realized that most people's biggest mistakes when it comes to home office design is that they shove a desk against the wall and stare at the wall all day. Studies have proven that one will be more productive if able to look out a window or at least look at a stimulating piece of art (or a collage of inspirational images).
The images you've chosen all illustrate this, but my favourite office space shown here is the one with the red bookcase - I love how the desk is placed in the middle of the room instead of against a wall. It's a great option for people who have the space to spare!
Thanks for sharing - can't wait to see pics of your office!
Congrats to Kerry too!

I decorated my home office a couple of years ago. I find it's so much more inspiring to work in a room that's filled with colours and things that you love - it makes work a lot more enjoyable when you enjoy your surroundings :-)
There are a couple of pictures of my home office on my blog on the Portfolio page.
I just posted the same picture of the office with the horse artwork on my blog today :-) And I'm having a giveaway for a beautiful horse photograph by Diane Schuller. I bet it would look great in your office :-) Hope you'll stop by an enter :-)
PS - Congrats on your new client in the US.
You wear your hats well and are quite successful with them all... Wife, Mother, Marketer, Blogger & Interior Decorator!
