After years of living in some extremely small spaces (hello, tiny San Francisco loft studio!) I have really enjoyed spreading out in just over 1,000 s.f. I have room for my desk, and also a whole room devoted to a studio where I can really spread out! So why do I always end up in this little corner of my house!?
Seemingly every day, as I am writing my blog posts and working on the computer, I end up in this little, cozy corner of my home. It's not very ergonomically correct, and it's not particularly conducive to work, but it's my favorite spot!
I think it's because of the way the light pours into the room in the morning. It's the soft velvet of the couch that I proudly scavenged on Craigslist for $50 and breathed new life into! It's because I get to be near my Saarinen side table, one of the only things that I didn't thrift or scavenge but splurged on at a sample sale. It's also because I won't miss a beat around the house. I'm out in the open ready to see and hear everything going on in my home. Oh, and it's the closest spot in the house to the coffee maker...let's not discount that fact.
Either way, it's my little corner of the house, and I gravitate towards it. I plan on trying to cultivate a few more corners, if not only to "get my money's worth" with all of this space! But I don't really mind how often I work here. I might even make a new throw pillow for my corner!
Where is your corner? Do you end up in the same spot in your home time after time? Do you have to fight your significant other or pet for it? Give it up for cozy corners!
