A Dream Workspace | WeWork.Com

Wework.com, Dream_workspace, apple, blogger
Time and time again: I have written as to why I love living downtown (or perhaps those posts just serve as an affirmation to remind myself why I love having no storage or yard). Because honestly, I think it has so many extensive merits and I love living life in the 'hub'. However, that has come at the cost of other amenities that many enjoy. One of the most pressing is a home office. 

A home office. Oh how Jay and I have dreamt of our future home office. We truly cannot wait. We envision a neutral-toned room with ghost chairs, clean lines and ample space to get lost in thought. Or maybe we just want a designated room that we can close-off without question by saying "I'm working!!" and then retreating to our own quiet zen for a hot minute. But I digress, work really needs "space" -mental and physical- and garnering that creative/focused area to let yourself commit to the task at hand has been difficult for us in our downtown life. So all of this that we hope for below will, alas, have to wait:
Wework.com, Dream_workspace, apple, blogger, polyvore
^All details for items above can be found here.
To create and work I need white noise from SPEAKERS, an immaculate DESK with aesthetics and no clutter, PRETTY ADORNMENTS which invite me into the inevitable task, a GHOST CHAIR which declutters the mental space, a WINDOW to gaze out into as you manically try to continue your next brilliant thought, an iMAC for sheer size of screen, OVERHEAD LIGHTS to fight the urge to sleep, BRIGHT ART to percolate your own ideas, ACTUAL WORKING SPACE where you can rest items and notepads, a SOFT RUG to cushion the mental blows and, finally, SLIPPERS to tuck into as you envelop yourself in your work.

The bummer is that we don't have it now in our home in the big city. But the plus side is that for those of us who don't,WeWork has a solution. They have shared workspaces all over the world where everyone from Freelancers to Large Companies (& everything inbetween e.g. start-ups, non-profits, small businesses) can utilize a space to create, build, think, collaborate and work. The reason I took interest in highlighting them for this post was due to the fact that they are very prominent in my new home and I've heard nothing but good things about their services. Also, they offer an online member network to aid in collaboration ad offer an extensive list of discounts for entrepreneurs (ie. Healthcare, Web Hosting Services, Accounting Software, Travel, etc).

I know how much I desire a professional space to call my own and for those of us who cannot have one or do not necessarily need a full-time one due to space, money, resources,  nature of business, etc. WeWork has created an AMAZING alternative. Seriously, look at some of the spaces they provide.

What would be in your dream workspace?

I work from home...no desks, though! 21 years at a desk--19 of which were spent in a cubicle--and desks now feel like a prison to me. I sit in a big chair with my feet up on an ottoman, surrounded by windows! This is the life.

That desk is gorgeous!

I've never heard of Wework.com, that's pretty cool!

We had a home office that we turned into a dressing room. I prefer to work wherever is best for me that day and MFD prefers to work at the dining room table even though I HATE that. LOL

I love laptops. I can go anywhere and write. I have a small desk on wheels that I can roll into any room and work if I need a desk but I usually pick the brightest room and the comfiest chair to work in. Sometimes this is outdoors with an umbrella (since laptop screens are not easy to see in the glare of the sun) and a refreshing fruit infused water.

I hope you can find a workspace you love in your current home. My little portable desk was inexpensive and tucks away into a small corner when I am not using it. It has also been repurposed as a bar and tv tray when needed.

A home office would be a dream come true for us as well!

A home office would be great, but no desk, sitting at a friggin desk just screws with the back. Not sure what I'd use, but I would make a room totally for the cats, that count? lol

i've been in a white and gold or white and rose gold mood lately. just a clean work space for me. i tend to throw things around all the time!

Jax said...

Well, I work at work on a desk. Lol does that count? But it's no where near as fabulous as your design above. I really need to liven it up.

Love all those pieces! I'd love a little home office to blog and do the occasional work at home from. I wonder if i'd actually use it though, as I find myself doing my best work/blogging snuggled up in my comfy bed haha :)
