I struggle with wanting a "cool" workspace. I want that clean, instagramable, artfully styled space that belongs catalogued in a glossy architecture magazine. But that's not how I operate. My space will always be more functional than formal. My tools are real, not props, and I need them within reaching distance. I need space to fill and surfaces to clutter, and plenty of shelving to store half done projects.
But that doesn't mean I can't pretty it up once in a while. And man, I do love my afternoon sunshine. Sometimes it wrecks my workspace with it's exaggerated shadows and I get all sweaty sitting there. But it does make for some excellent vitamin D absorption and some awesome photos.
