Study inspiration

Our study at our old house was many different spaces during the time we lived there. Now that we are working from home for the foreseeable future, in our new home we are creating a true office space that we can use for work. One of our additions was french doors to create a sound barrier for when we are in meetings.

And finally, one of my favorite rituals of work focus is lighting a candle.
