Creative Space…

I found this creative space via Flickr.  It was designed and finished by designer, creator, writer, stylist, consultant and photographer (wowzer) Elizabeth Maxson who uses it as her personal home office.  Elizabeth painted all of the walls, flooring and furniture.  One of the details that makes this space work so well is the neutral, rich [...]
