Mood board = spice up your workspace


mmm pink gets me in that right working mood :)






It’s August and a large part of the Swedish population are back at work (in other words, nose to the grindstone :) after a long vacation. But I don’t think that work should be a chore – a job should be so much more than a boring ‘must’.

You need two things to spice up your work place: Inspiring surroundings and creative people. Something that can bring life to your working day is a personal mood board. It can take the form of a picture at your desk, flowers, or photos in an inspirational collage. I am going to frame all of my favourite small pictures and make mood board above my writing desk :)

That work has to be serious and boring isn’t really passé in 2012… everything is what you make it, so if you don’t like what you do… do something else :)

I wish you a wonderful start to a new, creative Autumn.

    Love this! My workspace is a little less than inspiring at the moment – ideally I would have some cheap but sweet flowers, a little moodboard, maybe some cute stationery. I adore the first four photos – the ribbon board, the pink touches, the heart-shaped paperweight. Absolutely perfect.
