Sarah & Abraham workspace

I'm so excited that Jennifer will be starting tomorrow! Here are some new pictures of my workspace that I took today. This room used to be a playroom, and then I converted it to an office about two years ago when I moved my computer out of the cloffice.

The idea was that 1/3 of the room would be workspace for me, 1/3 for my husband, and 1/3 for the kids. The kids' craft area didn't last long at all, and my husband's desk was quickly relegated to a small space in a corner of the room.

Now I've taken over the room completely, and my poor husband has been banished to the cloffice. Well, I moved everything from his desk and shelves into the cloffice, but he won't actually be working in there, so it's not really as bad as it sounds.

love this room. it looks very soothing and inviting yet efficient! seeing your computers, do you use pc or mac?

I use a PC. I'm sure I'd be much happier if I switched to a Mac, but I've been using a PC for 17 years. I was a business management major and didn't really get into graphic design until about 2 years ago.

Is the far desk a Galant (Ikea)? Oh how I want that desk system!

Your packaging/mailing station is lovely...I love that hutch/credenza/cupboard!

You are an inspiration to all those artists out there hoping to one day run their own business. At least you are to me :) I am a graphic designer, and hope to one day run my own children's design company. You can check out my shop itsybitsystore on etsy.
Love your blog!

Very nice and organized! I love it! How exciting..your first employee! :)

Sara Tams said...

Yep, the L-shaped desk is a Galant. I probably should have titled my post, "office by Ikea". The workstation is a kitchen island from Ikea that we almost got rid of when we remodeled our kitchen, and I'm so glad we didn't - it's a perfect workspace!

Oh I heart your space!! It is beautiful! I moved from my small "cloffice" to my larger "cloffice"...hmm..maybe I need to take over a room!!??:) Wonderful inspiration!

Alison said...

It looks beautiful. What is your key to staying organized. I seem to leave a mess all the time. I love it when it is all put away, but keeping it that way is another story.

name your design said...

Hi! Wow....your space looks super! Hope you had a great first day with your new employee. We should have lunch together very soon now that that kiddos are in school. Congrats on all your exciting news.

Carla Cavellucci Landi said...

Good luck with the new employee! Loved your workspace, you deserve all the success always for being so nice on sharing your experience! If one day I can start my new design business (knock on wood!!), there will be always a word somewhere talking about how you are such an inspiration!

I love your "space"!

where'd you find the boxes that you store the envelopes in?

Thanks for sharing!

Sara Tams said...

Those are the boxes they come in... I just turn them around so the label is facing the wall.
