If I had to dream up the perfect writing space it would be a dedicated office at home. It would be mostly white with a white desk and a vintage chair. Wallpaper when done right can be really beautiful. I'd have some kind of muted pastel wallpaper on one wall with an interesting pattern and a really pretty lamp on my desk. There would be an inspiration board above my desk where I could tack up inspirational quotes, photos and ideas. It would be the kind of room that immediately relaxes me when I walk in and inspires creativity everywhere I look. There would be a bookshelf full of books. All of my writing tools would be arranged in cute containers and my hot pink MacBook would look perfect sitting in the center of it all. I'd also have a pink bean bag. I have a thing for bean bag chairs. They are comfy and I think it would cozy up the space. I can imagine myself sitting in one brainstorming the next great idea for my novel.
It would look something like this.

The reality is that my writing space is pretty much wherever I end up opening my lap top. Sometimes it's standing at the kitchen counter. Sometimes it's on the couch upstairs or the couch downstairs. Sometimes it's at the dining room table. If I'm blogging often times I am multi tasking and the TV is on too. If I'm working on my novel it's always at the dining room table, TV off and Pandora station for studying on. Or else it's at a coffee shop. When it comes to that, I can't focus otherwise.
Maybe in our "mythical next house?" For now I'll stick to couches and coffee shops. It may not be the most inspirational or ideal but it works.
