Inside Nadia's Workspace

What is your favorite item in your workspace?

I'm obsessed with mood lighting (can you tell??). My favorite objects are my sunset lamp, the Hue Go light that changes color with my mood and my neon pink clock.

How do you spark creativity?

I find inspiration in my inner world, my feelings and thoughts, so my creative process usually starts with writing. My journal is always somewhere next to me.

I also keep inspiring books and magazines on my desk so I can pick them up during the design process when I hit a creative block.

How do you manage work-life balance?

Working for myself and creating every single day is not easy, so I try to take breaks and do something just for fun as soon as I feel tired and unenthusiastic about creating. Inspiration always comes back once I've had enough fun and rest. Letting my inner child play is at the core of my creative practice.
