Inspiring work spaces

Adored Vintage Home Studio Inspiration

I don’t know about you, but I can’t really get much done when things are a mess and my environment is not inspiring or pretty. I feel like I have to have things “just so” before I can get down to the nitty gritty work stuff.  Once again, I am taking a break from the moving hubbub so I can unwind a bit and be inspired to continue the packing!

My new home has a finished attic and a finished basement which will be used partly for Adored Vintage stock and one of the bedrooms (the one with the most windows) will be my new office. It’s a small little room which I hope to keep sparsely furnished with my flea market finds and eventually a brand new desk, well, a brand new antique/vintage desk. The entrance to the attic looks like a little closet door which is in my office, so it might be converted to a giant walk-in closet (and also reading room and dance room) as it is only accessible through the office. Details, details.

All right mon cherie, I must depart and get back to it! The packing continues!

I’m taking a little break from packing, cleaning, and organizing and browsing around Pinterest while enjoying Chinese takeout. I should consider “Pinning” a hobby as I spend so much time on Pinterest gathering inspiration and sourcing ideas.

As each day passes I am getting more and more excited about my move to Portland! Last night I was laying in bed browsing through Etsy and Pinterest for Autumn clothing and shoes and Fall outfit ideas. I have not lived in a state that has a proper Autumn or Winter in YEARS.

Literally. I have lived in the Southern part of the US for over 15 years! As I was clicking through coats, sweaters, boots, and wool skirts…my head was just spinning! So excited for cool weather, rainy evenings with soup on the stove, and the scent of cinnamon and spice in the air.

If you haven’t already, go browse my Pinterest Boards as I have been spending quite a lot of time pinning outfit inspiration for Autumn in the Fashion | Autumn board and the Fashion | Women board which is where I have all the images above pinned!
