Inspired Office Space

February 22, 2016

I am excited to share that I have recently moved into a new office space. The space is located in a lively area of Santa Barbara, lovingly referred to as the “Funk Zone” by locals. Nestled near the train station, the area is home to an eclectic collection of warehouses, industrial operations, art galleries, and more recently, an impressive collection of hip eateries, and award-winning microbreweries and wineries. The overall vibe of the neighborhood is lively, creative, and offers a different feel than the rest of Santa Barbara.

Right now the office is about as bare bones as it gets; but with a lofted exposed beam ceiling and one giant floor to ceiling window, the cozy space has all of the potential to become the perfect creative retreat. As I finalize the design details for the transformation, I wanted to share some of my work space inspiration and product finds. I look forward to many inspired hours of productivity in the future and not to mention, the inevitable runs to the nearby Metropolis for lunch, or the post-workday glass of wine at The Santa Barbara Wine Collective.
