      Thanks, Kay. It’s the smallest room in the house, but the one I spend the most time in. Much easier to settle in now!

    Your personal interior designer approves! It gives you a nice bright environment to inspire your next novel! Excellent!

    I love how your office makeover turned out—I used to have a writing room that color, but sadly it never got pulled together like that. (Then we moved.) Did you laminate your kids artwork or frame it? You’ve inspired me—I think I’ll do a little beautifying while waiting for my galleys.

      I didn’t laminate or frame anything. I lazily hung it however it came home from school (some laminated, some mounted on cardstock, foamcore, or construction paper). The dark bookcase was a $35 find from a second-hand store and is a nice contrast to the lighter wood desk. And of course, rearranging the desk so I didn’t sit facing the wall helped a ton! Good luck, and let’s see pictures of yours.
