The Workspace

The new place has three bedrooms, which is more space (in the US) than we've had since we left SF. For now the kids will share a room, we'll have a bedroom and there will be a workroom/office/guest room. I have been wandering through Flickr, looking at interesting workspaces for inspiration. I know that I don't want all the furniture shoved up against the wall and that the desks shouldn't look "desky" and boring. I'm thinking a big work table in the middle, with shelving and supplies along the wall on bookshelves instead of office plastics and metals - maybe an antique dresser would work. Also want some comfy seating for reading or studying.

The beauty of having three bedrooms is that we have a lot of flexibility in how we use the rooms. In a year or two, the kids will need their own rooms and we wanted that option without having to pick up and move again.
