Visually Speaking /// Workspace Inspiration

Posted April 09 2012

So we recently made a big purchase for the studio (more on that in an upcoming post) and it has gotten me thinking of re-vamping and re-organizing our work space. I'm really into the Industrial Vintage look and I love wide open loft style spaces with touches of retro styling. I especially love when this look is accompanied by exposed brick and wood flooring as it adds warmth to what can come off as "cold" with the typical industrial feel. I always say that I am torn between lofts and bungalows as I like the characteristics of both. Someone recently turned me on to the modern farmhouse (here, hereand here) and I must say I think I am in love! Our current space is nowhere near the likes of a loft or a farmhouse, we do live in a cottage-style bungalow and all, but I always find that putting a 'mood board' together can help you accomplish the look in the spaces you have available.

As a side note, while Pinterest is awesome I'm a bit disappointed to notice images either with no credit at all or with links to someone else's blog, not the original source of the images. I try my best to seek out the sources, but sometimes it is impossible as it is just blog after tumblr after image bookmarking site, and so on. With that being said if you know the sources to the Pinterest-linking images let me know and I'll update them straight away. update- I used the Google Image search and it took a little digging but I found some of the sources. A few are missing but I'll be sure to use this tool from now on for images in question!
