Workspace of the Week: Personal practical

This week’s Workspace of the Week is NeverMindTheEnd’s glossy white home office:

This home office is a wonderful example of a highly utilitarian space that feels very comfortable and personalized, without any clutter distracting the desk’s user. A mail sorter provides a space to hold a small notebook and mobile phone. The teapot, powdered milk container, and mug are likely used daily (or even multiple times during the day) to keep NeverMindTheEnd productive and happy. I also really like the open bookshelf, that keeps resources handy and looks attractive. The artwork (which appears to be on the theme of Duluth, Minnesota) is hung high enough on the walls so as not to interfere with the visual focus on the monitor, but still provides character to the room. This is a terrific space, and we thank NeverMindTheEnd for sharing it with us.

Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.

    Thanks for showing my space! I think I’ve gotten it just about where I want it.

    …just a couple of corrections: The mail sorter doesn’t hold my phone (it’s docked right next to the computer, with a lego stormtrooper guard), and my screen name doesn’t have any capitalization.

    I love the bookshelf!
    Such a small footprint!

    @nevermindtheend — Ah, it looked like a phone at the front of the mail sorter. What is that thing if not a phone?

    Very cool space.

    @Erin – perhaps it’s a Moleskine notebook?

    @Erin Doland – It’s actually a spare SmarTrip card (DC transit system). It’s one of the ones from the inauguration with Obama on the front.

    Love the space and the wall color! Which paint did you use?

    This is one of my favourite Personal Spaces, one I could see me adapting for my own use. I love that the desk has enough room to put a notebook, papers, etc. to actually WRITE on (you know, with a pen), rather than just enough room for the monitor and keyboard. And I am in love with the bookshelf, even tho’ my daughter says it looks like a Jenga tower (you know, the game). I agree and think it adds whimsy.

    Yeah, can you tell I love this space. Well done.

    I suggest to put a small mirror on the wall to reflect movement behind you so you are not startled.

    @Jenn – The color is RL Sanctuary.

    @Dede – Thanks!

    @Gail – I’m not too worried about being startled by movement behind me – the only thing behind me is my bed. http://www.flickr.com/photos/nevermindtheend/6978163252/

    Nice office! I’m particularly fond of the iMac :-) I think the longer I say on this page, the more jealous mine gets (my desk-space isn’t nearly so nice…yet!)

    How do you like the trackpad, though? I’ve never been a fan of trackpads on laptops, but the functions on apple.com make it look like you can do some cool navigation. Worth it?

    @JF – When I first got the trackpad, I kept my mouse around in case I needed it. I never used the mouse again. (Of course, I don’t use programs like photoshop, either.)

    Was wondering, what desk is that???! I love it!

    Where’d you get the bookshelf? I’ve been wanting one, but can’t remember where I originally saw it.

    Where did you get that desk from?

    The desk is from CB2, but they don’t sell it anymore. The book shelf is also from CB2, and still available.
