It’s not just how you work, but also where you work that’s important. Here at Apartment Therapy, we understand the influence that your physical environment can have on your state of mind, and that’s particularly true for the place where you work—whether that work is writing, or catching up on business, or just composing a few emails. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some incredibly inspiring workspaces, so that no matter your style—whether you’re a minimalist or a maximalist or somewhere in between—you’ll find a space that will inspire you to make your workspace the best possible space for you to do your very best.
