By now, you've surly seen Heather Clawson's debut book, Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work, in stylish boutiques about town (or better yet, you already own it!). If you haven't had a chance to flip through, I highly suggest doing so. Not only is the book beautiful, but the content is highly motivating. All of the individuals featured have found success doing what they love and it shows; their work spaces are more like shrines than offices.
Couture landscape designer Miranda Brooks' Manhattan studio, also known as my newest obsession, is a wonderful example. The easy English elegance typical of her work translates beautifully into a creative space... that Hugo Guiness poster casually taped onto a whitewashed brick wall? Those well-loved, oversized chintz throw pillows? The dime store jar filled with fresh tulips fresh? Stunning! When I grow up, I want this. Now do you see what I mean by motivating? :)
Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work is unfussy, raw, and seriously, seriously inspiring. In other words, you need it. Plus, you're going to love the way that it looks on your bookshelf (beacuse let's be real - that matters to people like us).
