As I began this new journey as a blogger, I soon realized I need to set up a proper workspace.  The first thing I did, which is the first thing I always do when starting a new design project, is make a list of all the things I need for the space to function properly.  Once I have a clear vision of how a space needs to function I can start dreaming of how to make it beautiful.  I usually do this by collecting images and building an inspiration board (examples above).  This is my time to be creative and let my imagination run wild, not worrying about limitations such as dimensions and budget.  Once my vision is clear, I can begin shopping for the right pieces of furniture, lighting and accessories that fit my look as well as my room size restrictions and budget. 

Through this process, I decided it is best I have two workspaces in my house.  One I will call the "stylish desk", which is my personal space for organizing photos, recipes and other things I gather for work and inspiration.  This desk will be decorated with things I love.  And I would like it to remain free of all the clutter that quickly builds with a husband and two small children.  The other space will be called the "working desk" which is the one in my family room that I share with my husband.  And the one I spend most of my time at.  This desk will be less about style and more about function.  But still beautiful of course! 

Do you have any great tips for setting up the perfect workspace?  I would love to hear them.  Please stop back to see more great desk accessories and photos of my workspaces I will soon be posting.
