Work Space Envy

Today I spent the day reorganizing my work space (aka 'the garage'), while dreaming of having a fourth bedroom, or a basement, or an attic space, or better yet, a guest house in the back yard that I use as my 'studio'!

I believe that it is true that you can be more efficient in your tasks if you have a designated work place.

Here are some of the few that I have lusted over:

I love the painted wall!  And this is just a closet space!  

How about a room to call my own like this one?

Or simply a back yard getaway:

Well, a girl can dream can't she?

Inspired by my friend Marion Philpotts

My beautiful friend Marion Philpotts-Miller is one of the Principal Designers at Philpotts Interiors, based in Honolulu, Hawaii.  She has an incredible sense of style and I might add, one of the most talented people I've ever met!
She recently inspired me as I was surfing www.houzz.com and I came upon this fabulous room that she and her team put together for a recent San Francisco Decorator Showcase:

I love the neutral palette, with the pop of blue!  Very serene, sophisticated and spectacular!  The geometric pillows caught my eye and I added a version in green to my etsy shop!

I invite you to visit www.Philpotts.net and view more of Marion's work!  She's a gem!
