An Inspired Space

When I read a lovely post by one of my blogger friends, I always wonder what their "work" space looks like? Are you writing from a desk in an inspired space? Are there pictures of family, friends, and inspirations surrounding you? Or do you prefer to work in a space with clean lines and minimal imagery? Do you have a view of nature or do you prefer a dark and quiet space? 

I have discovered that my ideal "work" space resembles that of an old library. I love libraries. I love the coziness I feel in a room filled with shelves and shelves of books. I love the smell of the books as you crack open their pages. I love the history that fills the walls and the energy of education in the air. 

The McGregor Room in Alderman Library at the University of Virginia. I spent many a sleepless nights in this library. Hmmm  . . . maybe that would explain my Love for old libraries!?

The last image is my girl Mary Randolph Carter's desk at Ralph Lauren. You can read more about my Love affair with MRC here. I Love the incorporation of the vintage cabinents, the use of the school house chalkboard, the books, the photos, and the abundance of vintage treasures throughout the spaces in each of these images. I am now so inspired to play around in my office. I will be sure to post pictures!
