Designer Jared Fanning, whose work includes illustrations (see the chair above), maps and a wonderful collection of posters using quotes from Frank Lloyd Wright (below) shares his ideal home work space. He and his wife, a photographer, have joined the growing number of people embracing a more fluid worklife – one that would allow them to work from a tent or a beach house.

A friend of mine is renovating her house and I spent time looking over swatches of fabric and thinking about color, sofa shapes and rug pile earlier this week. It was so nice to get back into that head space again. Renting has kept me from doing too much major work on the house that we live in…that and a rather tight budget! So it was fun to step into someone else’s shoes and indulge in a morning of talking nothing but interiors. It also re-sparked my interest in interiors shoots. Always on the lookout for great home offices I came across this one in Elle Decor. It’s the house of cosmetics queen Jeanine Lobell, actor Anthony Edwards and their four children. The whole home is pretty amazing – great use of color. But I especially enjoyed this workspace. The crisp white of the walls and the gallery of paintings is a perfect back drop to the desk. I feel like you could write the great American novel sitting at that desk.
