In love with this creative workspace from the home of Darcy Miller, illustrator and editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings. It’s the chicest craft room I ever did see! It’s not only fully stocked with all the supplies you could ever need for any creative project, but it’s also beautifully organized. Everything has a home designated based on frequency of use, so things are accessible and easy to find. With the exception of the art supplies which bring a cheerful rainbow array of color to the space, most everything (the walls, floor, ceiling, furniture, and storage containers) is black, white, and gray. This creates a uniform look and keeps the room from feeling chaotic or overwhelming.

Ahh a new year is just around the corner, full of promise and fresh with opportunity to make things happen! When it comes to goals for the year, I find it helpful to plan and lay them out in a calendar that allows me to see at a glance what I should be doing when and when certain deadlines are approaching, so I can get my butt into gear and actually accomplish what I aim to. The Neu Year calendar is perfect for that. I have one in my office, placed vertically on a door that my desk faces. It’s nice to look up from my computer and be able to quickly see the whole year at once. Since it doesn’t have gaps between the months, it has a good flow, which is great for planning across months easily and clearly seeing the distance between any two dates in a year.

At the end of this month my husband and I will be moving to an area closer to where he works. We signed a lease on a two bedroom apartment and I’m excited that I’ll get to use one of the bedrooms as my office. Woohoo! Of course, I’m already dreaming up ideas on how to set it up. It’s not a very large room but I think it might fit a sideboard in addition to my desk and chair. I’m thinking maybe something like this:
I’m also thinking of paint colors. The room doesn’t get a ton of natural light so I’ll probably go for something light to keep it from looking dark and depressing. Any favorite paint colors in the white/ivory family that you’d recommend?
I’ll be sharing my inspirations, plans, and progress on here, so stay tuned!

It’s almost a brand new year (can you believe it?) and for many that means a new planner with fresh pages for jotting down plans, goals, to-do’s etc. I’ll be getting a 2012 refill for my pink leather Kate Spade organizer (pricey but one of those purchases I don’t at all regret because I use it everyday and even after a few years it still looks great). If I didn’t have a planner already, I’d be considering one of these stylish picks:
1- laurel denise planner, 2- tudor city large debra, 3- jonathan adler 17 month agenda, 4-bijou soho diary, 5- cavallini leather daily planner, 6- dozie bowtie pocket planner, 7- sarah pinto stripe weekly planner, 8- moleskine assorted month daily planner, 9-russell and hazel mini binder, 10- faux snakeskin vintage daily planner
Do you get a new planner each year, refill one you already own with new pages, or prefer to organize your life digitally?
Came across this glam brass holder and colored pencils set and thought I’d share.
