HI FROM NY

hi friends. i’m laying in my hotel bed in brooklyn after eating far too many meatballs this evening. a very worthwhile food coma. i’m here just for a short trip to teach , but i wish i was staying longer because the weather is beautiful. finally i don’t have to wear summer clothes and deal with the LA heat.

also it’s officially fall and i’m feeling the changes already creeping in. i’m ready for exciting new projects, planning travel, and maybe even some cute boys if i’m lucky? one can wish. happy fall everyone. –bri

ps isn’t of audrey great?

REIMAGINING YOUR WORK SPACE

1409872588.341107.IMG_8733

the idea that you need to be creative or productive all of the time can often feel like a lot of pressure. we’re constantly working to stay ahead of the curve and put our best foot forward and honestly, sometimes it’s exhausting. one of the most rewarding things i did for the blog was to take a leap and rent a studio space. it felt like a big undertaking at the time but has really paid off in the things that we’ve been able to create. i thought it’d be fun to share some tips about workspaces and what i’ve found to be helpful in establishing a work zone and reimagining the places that we create. no matter if you’re working from your living room, home office, shared space or the 21st floor of a high rise we all need to mix it up every once in awhile because let’s be real, no matter your job, things can get kinda boring day after day.

make it fresh – take the time to keep your workspace clean, organized and tidy. it does take time -those plants that you love need a lot of care, and those white floors need to be re-painted every year (ours just were!), be willing to invest the time and sometimes money to keep up the things that matter to you. figure out what’s important in your space, and be sure to not let those things go. sometimes just simply rearranging my desk, changing my desktop wallpaper and organizing my desktop folders can put me in a better headspace!

make a statement – i’ve wanted to get a custom neon sign for the studio to hang over our desks. help me think of cool phrases! i was considering “be here, now” (since i have a problem with always thinking into the future) or “you better work, bitch.” (ha! a good b.spears reference).

make it yours – having your workspace feel like it’s a reflection of you is important. you’ll be more enticed to spend time there and invite people in when you feel comfortable and confident in your office. it took us almost a year to furnish the studio because i wanted to wait for the right pieces and not fill it with things that i’d get sick of down the road. we spend a significant portion of our day at work so spend time making it personal and filling it with the things you love, it’s worth the investment.

make a mess – whenever i’m feeling uninspired or stuck, i need to just make a mess and create something. call a friend over to the studio to paint or do a fun project. i keep a large area in the studio free to be a blank canvas that is solely meant for projects and shoots. i love taking these behind the scenes “not as pretty” shots. they’re a fond reminder of the creative energy and beauty that has been created in my studio.

make a new layout – don’t be afraid to move things around and mix up your layout. keep yoga mats around for afternoon stretching, put your feet up and work from the couch, push your desks closer together to encourage collaboration, work outside in the sunshine…there are so many ways to work – experiment and see what’s ideal for you.
