How many of you are writers and creatives dreaming about your perfect writing home, where you can fill your notebooks? Or maybe you are looking for a large bright space, or even just a little corner with a small desk, window, some photos, and a shelf for your notebooks and scribbled notes? Or maybe outdoors on the deck immersed in nature, or in a rain porch with a hot chocolate. A quiet space of solitude?
I dream about something visually pleasing and uncluttered, with so much light: a space of simplicity and quiet, but also wonder. Have you ever dreamt of how you would design such a perfect place?
Searching for the perfect home.
I am currently looking for a home, and doing the months-long housing search, determined to find the perfect home with a beautiful writing vibe. And while prices are soaring, I am sincerely hoping to find a place this Spring. While searching for my ideal writing home, I have thought deeply about what a home with a great writer’s vibe would be like. Over the years, many famous writers have enjoyed lots of interesting and inspiring writing spaces, and as you can see here, you can make a writer’s space just about anywhere.
What design elements do you dream about?
Here are some thoughts I’ve had about design: big windows with lots of light, spacious wooden floors where I can do a Yoga session before I write, bright corners in the living room or den where I can read or curl up with my notebook, a large desk of with book shelves in a writing office tucked away down the hall or up in refinished attic, a nice big wooden kitchen table where I can spread out my notes and manuscript pages and letters to magazine editors, a sweet bedroom chair for reading that novel or jotting down last notes before sleep, a garden deck for morning-writing while listening to the birds, an front or back enclosed porch for rainy days, and a lovely wooden tray for bringing my tea and notebook to bed. These are only a few ideas, and the more I look through house and designer websites, the more inspired I am to make a place with the right creative mood.

Let me know, because I will keep this in mind during my house search, and it will inspire other writers and creatives as well.
