We all have a "someday" list - things we'll do someday, make someday, indulge in someday. High on our wish list is a dreamy home office - a true creative space where we can work, get inspired and get away from it all. We dream of the same thing for our kids -- a creative space where they can play, imagine, and invent.
All that daydreaming led to this. Our HUGE! roundup of 100 incredible and imaginative home offices, work areas, study spaces, and studios. For you and for the littles.
If you're looking for inspiration for your own space, start with Apartment Therapy's article,
10 Steps to a Home Office You'll Love. We also spent time surfing around Decor 8, Apartment Therapy, Lonny, and Little Bits of Lovely, the blog behind a terrific weekly post called Wednesday Workspace.
Check out our picks and by all means let us know if you've got a creative workspace to share!
