The Ecology of Colour, Dartford, Kent (UK) - The timber structure is a community arts studio, bird-watching hide, and park shelter all rolled into one. There is a semi- outdoor tiled classroom and storage space at ground level with an enclosed room upstairs offering views of the River Darent and surrounding trees. On the upper floor, shutters of various sizes allow for activities ranging from wildlife watching and drawing, to public events that spill out into the park. (photo by Jim Stephenson) by clarissa

James Turrell: Amba A Turrell Space Division (also called an ‘Aperture’ work) consists of a large, horizontal aperture cut into a wall. There is no glass. The aperture in a Space Division work appears to be a flat painting or an LED screen but is a light-emitting opening to a seemingly infinite, light filled room beyond. by gabrielle

White Light No traditional home office? No problem. Transform a bedroom corner into a work-at-home space with smart decorating strategies. Set up a desk in front of a window and complement the soothing palette by hanging sheers and long, floor-length floral curtains, which will add texture and height to the room. The built-in bookshelf is a natural (and  glorious) storage space. by katy

London basedArchitects, Platform 5 Architects have designed ‘Shoffice,’ a garden pavilion office. The glazed office space nestles into an extruded timber elliptical shell, reminiscent of a wood shaving, and forms a small terrace in the lawn. The interior is oak lined and fitted out with a cantilevered desk and storage. Two rooflights, one glazed above the desk with another open to the sky outside the office bring light into the work space. by beth

Being confused is actually a part of the process. When you step out of the known into the un-known things are bound to be a little foggy. So feeling confused is not a bad sign - but it is uncomfortable. And sometimes a lack of clarity means you are avoiding something important. Your fears, doubts and limiting beliefs have lots of space to hide in the fog. So you want to work with your confusion and bring in clarity. The Creative Dream Circle has tools, classes + resources to help. by sharlene
