I tried to design my space to inspire creativity no matter where I looked, whether at the computer, the mountains, or the trinkets lying around the edges. I love that my desk is neat and organized, yet there are enough objects that I can look to when I need inspiration away from the computer. Sometimes, I just need to pick up a piece of yarn or a pen and a notepad to hone in on my creative ideas.
A worthwhile attitude to minimalism. Simplicity for the sake of simplicity is pointless; gauge what works for you and stick with it.
