A Girl Can Dream.
June 6, 2012 § 1 Comment
My dream office closely resembles that of Rachel McAdam’s painting room á la The Notebook.
Actually, I want that entire house, all of it, every inch, but let’s just focus on the room he sets aside for her to paint in (the likes of which I cannot locate a picture-ça va mal- so you’ll just have to see the movie if you haven’t already, which is blasphemy in its own right). The light, the view, the balcony…such a beautiful space that it is all hers, so specifically set up for her craft that once she enters it, all that is left to do is paint. I love that.
I decided to take a break from ruminating about writing and instead show you what my dream office would look like.
I’m pretty sure that it is a LONG way off, us being in a house where a room (along with our income) is expendible enough to become my personal writing sanctuary, but what the hey. I’ll look to Pinterest (to which I finally remembered my login information…phew, right?) to share a little bit about my dream with you.
First of all, I want an office that is absolutely nothing like this. This is my office hell:
No creativity can possibly happen there.
These next few, however, have my heart. Such wonderful spaces. The wood, the colors, the light. Oh, the light.
This next one just feels like a breath of fresh air, though how anyone could sit and write for any length of time in that chair, I have no idea. The chair would have to go.
And finally, doesn’t this gal look like she is having a grand ol’ time in her office? I can see why. Though the desk lamp would have to go and the carpet is not my favorite, I especially love the chair in the corner, perfect for editing or indulging in someone else’s words.
….aaaand within just a few minutes on Pinterest I went cross-eyed and reached my “why am I looking at all of these pictures that exist for the sole purpose of making me want things and “pinning” them so I can virtually have them but not really and I can’t take it anymore” threshold.
But you get the idea.
Someday, friends. Someday.
