My work space…
Working at home can be convenient, but it takes a lot of discipline to stay on task. I have to put myself on a schedule, so I don’t get distracted, which is easy to do at home, especially when there is always something to interrupt your flow. So for me, it is important to have a relatively neat space, so I can think clearly. I’m really working on editing and getting rid of things that no longer serve me. I switch back and forth from my laptop and my desktop, depending on if I am uploading images. One of the perks of when your kids go away to school, you gain space, and rooms to repurpose for other uses. My office/closet/pilates studio/ hair salon, used to be my 22 year-old daughter’s nursery.
I love pretty paper, and still like to write letters the “old school” way, there is something special about taking a nice pen to beautiful paper-different experience from a text, email or tweet. I love to pick up stationary when I travel, this cabinet is perfect for storing all my goodies.
My contractor “found” dead space in the wall and built this cabinet out, it is about 3 feet deep, and has glass doors and space at the bottom for storing boots.
I don’t ever wear these, but they make fun props…

Do you work at home? How do you stay focused? Do you have a “space” or room in your home where you can escape?
