Desperately seeking a fresh approach

I’m that person that constantly moves around the living room furniture, just for a change.

I don’t even remember all of the different combinations. Sometimes I move things around in a way that isn’t really functional, just for the sake of something NEW, visually.

I love working from home, but spending so much time in such a tiny room can be … difficult. This room is home to a lot of STUFF (namely fabric) and a lot of in-progress projects, and yet it also has to be a space where I can do interviews, meet deadlines, write articles, work on my novel, blog, and in general try to be a “professional.”

It’s hard to keep all of that contained to a little basement room without feeling claustrophobic, uninspired, crowded, frustrated, overwhelmed, and depressed.

And so even though my home office was “redone” less than two years ago, going from the bubble-gum pink I chose before I ever believed I’d have a daughter to a bold red with lots of black and white,  I was ready for another shake-up. I needed a shake-up. I wanted to love this room again.

The walls are staying, the gallery wall is staying, and my totally awesome built-in desk is staying, but we’re in the middle of some pretty major changes that will give me more work surfaces and prettier storage.

Stay tuned for the big reveal in the next couple of weeks. I’m already feeling ALL of the heart-eyed emojis for it and it’s not even done.

So what do you think?
