12 Creative Spaces for the Organized Artist

Whether you’re a traditional type of artist, like a writer or painter, or a modern-day website designer or blogger, creating a designated corner or room for your projects is key.

.
Research has shown that our brain associates our environment with its corresponding actions, which makes it easier to access certain parts of our brain when we’re in that space. For instance, we become better cooks when we’re in our own kitchen. Our brain naturally calls on past memories of cooking when we’re in that familiar space.
.
If you write your poetry in the same location every time, your brain builds stronger neuro-pathways to your creative “brain zones.” Tapping into your creativity becomes easier if you always write, design or perform in the same environment. And let’s get real, if you’re creating something, minimizing writers-block (or whatever your creative equivalent is), is everything!
.
So here’s your next project! Carve out a distraction-free zone that is your designated creative space. Stock it with all of the necessary paint brushes, notepads or pictures that will help you create your best masterpiece. Prioritize comfort, and organize the space for optimal functionality.
.
By designing a space that’s functional, organized and beautiful, we become more likely to use it. And if we’re more likely to use it, we’re more likely to get busy on our next big project!

Here are 12 Art Studios & Creative Spaces that have us inspired! Whether it’s a unique storage idea, colorful display or funky design, we’re grabbing some ideas for a unique creative haven.
