Achieving the "Creative" Home Office Look

Achieving the "Creative" Home Office Look

Sometimes it's the creatives themselves that create the space around them. However, more often than not, it's the spaces themselves that fosters that creative drive for designers, geeks, and home office dwellers to become inspired and get productive. Here's the secret on how to achieve that "creative" look...

First off, you'll need to throw up some art. Even a scribble. Anything. Frame it and use it as a starting point for more creative pieces to help spice up your home office space.

We understand the inner geek in you doesn't prefer to have a physical calendar in your space when you can easily use Google Calendar and sync it to your Crackberry. But there's something undeniably (we're gonna say it) "creative" in this day in age when you can use something that has utility (such as a calendar or a clock) without having its functional presence glued to the computer the screen.

Also, other tips from Vana from AT:Chicago:

• Keeping all the furniture white creates cohesion among the different pieces and looks great against the medium gray walls.
• The mix of open storage (to keep things accessible) and plenty of closed storage in the form of containers and a curtained closet (to keep things looking uncluttered) is smart.
• The overall mix of functionality (computer, printer, plenty of paper storage) and pure decoration (artwork, creative containers, cute calendars)

Now, it's your turn. Start throwing up some of your awesome works and share them on Unplggd's awesome Flickr group for the world to see!
