It should be known I do not work for a company in the creative field. I work for a company who thinks practically and functionally. But that's okay, because my brain is part reason and function and the other part creative and a bit of a dreamer. When I see pictures of office spaces that combine both function and creativeness it catches my eye.
The office space of Refinery29 is an example of that:
The workspaces are clearly cubicle-like, but the flash is achieved by adding that reclaimed lumber trim around the edges. Of course the stylish part is achieved by that Patrick Townsend designed Orbit chandelier (available here). I wouldn't mind the Non Random Moooi hanging light fixture over my space.
How about that cool Missoni-looking sneakers on the desk. Refinery 29 has a tutorial on how to make your own here.
The office space for Etsy is as you would expect - a bit eclectic and a bit home made.
Of course, those kilim rugs makes this space look comfortable. A nice plant on your desk takes out some of that artificial air blowing around you. Now put that nice plant in a cute vase and you bring it up a notch.
How about an Etsy print hung up on your wall?
Now excuse while I go and try to convince my boss to allow me to put bright blue and orange polka-dotted curtains on the windows.
