We covet the custom walnut work station designed by Marvin Freitas paired with crisp white walls—but we really love the simplicity of everyday staples arranged by an architect. Pencils put in clay kitchen cups, paperclips in hexagon Kaleido trays from Design Within Reach. A stack of wall tape (from local Ax-Man surplus stores!) on hand for creating wall art or tacking up good thoughts, design ideas, or throwback family photos. Bare necessities to ignite creativity. Consider this a blueprint for your very own inspiration station.
