I’m not naturally a messy person. I am convinced of that. I simply do not have enough clever storage solutions. That must be the reason why I gravitate naturally towards the workspaces of architects, designers and artists. Most of them seem to be supremely tidy (at least when they have their studio photographed) and have plenty of pigeonholes, drawers and other means of tidying things away.

Gorgeous! How does Eero Aarnio get any work done, with that view?!
He is well organised, clearly. Or rather, has the right desk and equipment to keep himself organised (and probably a cleaner too!)
When my library was built, I loved having the space in the middle with all the shelving and the desk around the walls. But then when we had to make room *sigh* for an inherited dining table, I took my beautiful Australian blackwood round table into the library and put it into the middle of the room, filling the space. It’s fantastic having that extra ‘bench space’ to put things on.
Sadly, my study also has to double as a guest room (with an armchair/bed), so I cannot have anything too big in the middle. I do have a book trolley that I shuffle around though!
That’s a thought… I could get some of those and have extra storage space!
They’re all lovely, Marina Sofia, and so cleverly created! Really well done! I think I like the first one best – it combines ‘airy’ with ‘books,’ and it does feel comfortable. But Aarnio’s work space is so beautiful with all of that light and those windows!
I do crave the Finnish one, I have to admit! Something to aspire to!
Yup. Gorgeous. Any of them would do instead of the constant clutter in which I always find myself….
All beautiful but number 2 please!!
Your excuse is one I empathise with and so will shamelessly borrow: my new slogan will be What do I want? Clever storage solutions! When do I want it? Quite soon … but not just now, there’s a book I need to read first…
Very funny, and devastatingly accurate!
Missed it yesterday Marina. Too busy supervising the finishing touches to the new bathroom, which we can now ‘swing a cat’ in, so I’m calling it Saturday fun and I like number two best. (My daughter has a kitchen like that!)
Well done you – some actually do some home improvements, while others (me) just look through magazines…
That small house looks really cozy and comfortable.
The last one is lovely, but I’m not sure I’d get any work done there!
In Her Studio is far too neat for my taste – it would feel like living on a movie set rather than in a real home. I see so many people posting instagram shots of carefully curated book shelves (colour co-ordinated or arranged to resemble a rainbow) and I think what sad people they are
Yes, I agree – I’d never be able to find a particular book on colour-coordinated shelves. But that’s probably because I seldom remember book covers.
