office inspiration for a blank wall

We moved into our new office space yesterday and it's lovely!! Big, spacious and lots of room to create! We'll post pictures as soon as the pile of boxes gets cleared, but until then, here's some inspiring pictures I came across to give me ideas for our new space.

My desk now faces a blank wall and I really love the idea and the look of an inspiration/collage wall

...or maybe something like these modular shelves hung on a brightly colored wall? We already have a limey/greenish-yellow colored wall that would work perfectly!

...but a bright graphic print would be a bold statement, too! Gosh, there are so many options!

musical illustration inspiration

I was admiring the artwork on the Flight of the Conchords album cover today (and anticipating the start of season 2 on January 18th! ) and came across fellow Seattleite Tyler Stout's illustrations. Along with the Flight of the Conchords album, he's designed many other great bands and music related posters.

colorful mugs

In order to get through the long, cold winters here in Seattle we need to stay warm, and there's never a shortage of tea brewing around our office. We're always keeping our kitchen stocked with the necessary basics like green or black tea or something unique like Chocolate Macaroon Tea from Todd & Holland to get us through the day.

These colorful Pantone mugs from W2 Products are a perfect way for a design studio to brighten up our cup of tea (or coffee) and would make any morning ritual that much more enjoyable. I love the tea color palette and the espresso colors (pictured below)! Check out all the other bright colors on their website!
