In which I examine two real life workspaces (not my own desk for once!)
In Part 1, I shared some tips on how to create an inspiring workspace. Now, we’re going to see some real life workspaces. Since I post an awful lot of pictures of my desk, I decided we’d look at some others today.
My youngest brother likes to write, draw, and build with legos. So his desk is very clear, allowing him a lot of space to do whatever he’s doing.
As you can see, Jack likes to have fun little items around him just like I do. However, he’s a lot more neat and tidy than I am, so this is a great example of how to have stuff without looking cluttered. He does this by keeping the majority of his knick-knacks off of his workspace, displaying them on shelves instead.
Jack collects plushies and game/movie/TV related memorabilia. He’s also got some books, games, notebooks, and legos on his shelves.
I really like Jack’s space because it’s fun, playful, but also neat.
Keegan is a youtuber, so his desk is set up for making videos and gaming.
It’s very clean and uncluttered. He doesn’t have any knick-knacks or personal items on his desk itself.
Behind his desk, though, he’s got a bit more going on.
He just recently switched his room around so he’d have a better backdrop for his videos. You can see that his bookshelf contains books, fandom memorabilia, and stuff. He’s also got a bulletin board, some records, his guitar, and some video game art on his wall. All of this will make a great background in his videos.
So there you go! Two real life workspaces broken down. As you can see, both are influenced by what they are used for and by the personality of their inhabitant.
