I've been in a hiatus for a while, there was a lot of stuff that went on but hopefully I'll be able to get back to my writing mode.
A few months ago, we moved to a smaller space which we had to downsize a few things and one of them is not having a private work space. It was quite a struggle not having that place where you can have a spot to retreat to for a positive effect on your creativity.
Creating a work-friendly space made it to my to do list project. Since we're just renting, we are restricted to hang anything on the walls so adding some shelves was not an option. We had a spare corner by the Living room area, it does not really call out invigorating but it can transform to a natural work-efficient extension of the living space. I propped my desk and a chair, I added a few elements that played together like a task lamp, a plant, a candle, an art work and some office accessories. Underneath it is a small filing cabinet and on it rested my printer. There's also a storage box to store papers, magazines etc.
See, sometimes an unused corner or space is all you need to achieve that spot for productivity.
