An online resource for people interested in great design. Better Living Through Design is brought to you by Katie and Kris and is a regular read for us at AT: Home Tech. Katie was kind enough to share her workspace with us and like the items featured on their site her office is a beautiful collection of quality pieces.

What's always found on your workspace? My mac, scanner, drawing tablet, Settegiorni planner, phone, lamp and Timor calendar, sticky note pads.

Favorite thing about your workspace?
Lots of desk surface to spread notes out on, plenty of corkboard to pin images/notes to, and a window to look out of when I need to look at something other than a computer.

What do you hate about your workspace?
Probably that I tend to cover every surface with notes - and that I don't clean them up as often as I should.

What inspires you to blog? Is it reflected in your workspace?
Good modern design is inspiring, especially when it's affordable. I've bought several things that we've posted just because I love them so much. I think overall it's important to put your own stamp on a space by mixing things you've bought with other found items or gifts from friends, yet still making sure you can use it efficiently.
