We are excited to share a new “Workspace” feature with our readers. We’ve turned to some wonderfully noted bloggers, writers, photographers and artists to share their inspiring workspaces. We’re excited to see their environment and what inspires their creativeness.
Our first inspiring workspace to share is from Jeanne, creator of the lifestyle blog Shop Sweet Things. Her blog focuses primarily on shopping and fashion, but also includes other interests such as home decor and design, kids and family, recipes and sweets, as well as spotlighting related industry events and new discoveries in her city, San Francisco.
We asked Jeanne to answer a few questions and here are her answers.
How does your workspace reflect your personality?
I don’t have a home office, so very often, my workspace is on my dining table. I’m the type of person that will make any situation work, or at least make the best out of it. In this case, I try to make this area dining-friendly, kid-friendly, and office-friendly. I surround this area with pops of colors, fun arts and objects. And I generally like to keep my styling modern, simple, and clutter free.
What inspires you when it comes to blending blogging and fashion?
I think a lot of times, my lifestyle blog influences my taste in fashion. Whether I blog about home decor, arts, DIY, kids, or even food, I get inspired by the colors and style and it rubs off on how I want to be dressed. I actually don’t follow too many fashion blogs because many times I don’t want to fall into the trend. I rather let my surroundings dictate my taste and I find that has been the best way to develop my personal style.
Tell us what your ideal work day would be like.
My ideal work day would definitely involve my kids. I know it’s nice to get a day of work done without their distractions, but I love it when they’re around. Now that my eldest daughter is almost three, she sits next to me doing drawings and saying silly things. She is such a free spirit and it certainly inspires me to be the same when it comes to work and blogging.
Thank you Jeanne for sharing your lovely workspace!
