Creative Spaces// Design Inspiration

It's no secret that I really enjoy design, whether it's book covers, typography, or interior design and I recently made a Pintrest account to collect and sort inspiration from around the web. Before I made an account, I didn't really understand the Pintrest craze but now that I have an account, I totally understand. Collect those pretty pictures and pin, pin, pin.

Here are some of my favorite work spaces that I found and I love that a lot of these are DIY friendly.
What I love about this is that it's really vibrant and bright. Although it's not the "typical" bookcase, it still does it's job done. It's a collection of IKEA boxes that are painted and then stacked. Super simple yet pretty. If you don't want to DIY it, Design Within Reach sells similar shelving boxes(photo via Marie Merseir)


Pastels! It kind of has a 60's vibe and the chair reminds me of elementary school chairs but everything works surprisingly well? (photo via Dutch lighting brand, Leitmotiv)

Usually when I think of peg boards, I think of garages or a toolroom but the pegboard that's used here really organizes the supplies. I love how plants are also included. For more of a daily use desk, I'd probably end up hanging a lot of framed quotes with geometric terrariums on the shelving. If I understand the shelving correctly, it's a frame that's screwed onto a board, which I'd probably switch out for a piece of plexiglass so I can view the terrariums from below.

Here's another rendition of the peg board work space. This definitely has a different feel from the previous peg board workspace. I like the use of washi tape for hanging posters, which I love to do. I got my washi tape from Etsy, but a lot of mainstream craft stores carry it, too. I've heard that dollar stores such as Daiso also carry it. According to Adore Home, where the image is from, the table lamp is from Target and the bunny print is a Laura Blythman print. (via Adore Home

I love the shelving that was used in this space. It's a super simple space but with everything paired together, it comes alive. The chair seems to be the same chair as the peg board work space above. I love how it repurposes old belts into a functional piece. If you're interested in doing something similar, Design*Sponge has a belt shelving tutorial. (image via Apartment Therapy)
