New Spaces

creative perspectivesMy recent decision to abandon my container garden has opened my eyes to the possibilities of the spaces around me. After removing the planters and tiered shelves, and washing down the tile flooring, I discovered that the little garden space is quite a bit bigger than I remembered. It’s a lovely spot for sitting and thinking.

Which leads me to wonder how I can rearrange my office. I’ve been feeling sort of stuck in this long narrow room—it’s cluttered, fussy and distracting. We’ve got two desks, a small filing cabinet, a credenza, and two big metal racks full of equipment. If I turn my desk, can I still get to the door? What if I move the racks together and use them as a divider between my side of the room and Tod’s?

I think it’s time to get the measuring tape out and figure out how to get a new perspective on this room.

Make a floorplan to scale and use paper cut-outs of all of the elements to get the arrangement before you start moving heavy desks around. Saves your back.
