...or where?  Is it a chaotic corner or are you lucky enough to have your own space

Here's my place of creation that I share with some of my dragons.  The other side of the room doubles as my dressing room :lol:

Wow, this looks extremely tidy, Gill! I 'm lucky to have a large desk in my big basement room that serves as a guest room, computer room, audio studio, and gym! My desk has books and CDs all over the place (off limits to anyone else!), between the graphic tablet, the printer, the large monitor, and the scanner. I find all I need there most of the times, but there are the other times when I wish it was organized (but then I find what I want, and conclude there is absolutely no need to change anything!)

I like to be tidy wherever I work!    Though what isn't in shot here is a set of stacking boxes (floral of course) that houses my disks and other paraphenalia.  It's all hidden behind the door.   Fortunately, one thing that didn't show up here was the layer of dust - hasn't been done since middle of last week (nawty me)

I ditched the printer ages ago.  The inks used to dry up and was a waste of money as I don't print very much.  If I DO need anyting printing off I zoom it over to hubby's compter and he does it.

Not exactly tidy, but not to messy:D

This is my little creative cockpit where I spend most of my free time either Vueing, making music or gaming.  Paul, I see you might be a gamer as well eh?

There was a time when this whole corner was a mass of black spaghetti cables, keyboards, huge consoles and other stuff. But the miracle of modern technology (and saving buku pennies) has allowed me to streamline down to what you see here. 

The tall black thing in the right corner is a Bose L1 sound system. The sound is so pristine it forces you to be a better musician. The black box on the floor is a power board with harmonizer and guitar synth. Wind controller, module and recording deck on the left and Alvarez, Mike Kelly and Godin instruments on the right.

I have to keep the side panel off my pc with a fan blowing into it.  My vidcard (overclocked) gets way too hot. Sometimes, I'll turn everything on and turn the lamp off and just sit back and look at all the pretty lights lol.......

Yeah man, marriage and children force me to stay home more than i would like to, so i gotta do something when not at work or in Vue, so gaming is the extra(; My Wacom is t ucked away, bit i got all the pretty lights on my G-11 keyboard and my razer copperhead to finally blink for when i a,m REALLY bored:P  You got one hell of a setup there buddy. I cannot have my cover on either as you see or it'll blow up:D My GTS is way overclocked. And still...Crysis plays like crap...looks nice though:D

Quite tidy Paul - for a man !!  Though the area does look very masculine.  The photos are a nice homely touch though :)

Mark, yours looks a little too chaotic for my taste but with all the music stuff in there as well, it's hardly surprising.  I do like your table lamp though. 

Thing with me is - I like using the technology but I hate it being on show.  My 2 external drives on my desk are camoflaged with dragons and postcards.    Yes, my TV is in a big cupboard and the doors are only open when it's being watched.  AND I don't have a TV in the bedroom.  Hubby has a little mini TV in his tiny computer room but I rarely go in there.  He makes model planes......I need say no more !!!!

Nice thread, very good idea Gill.

Here is where I sit right now - office. Being self employeed I can do Vue whenever I want - or have the time. Therefore mostly in the office, not very often at home, where i only have a bit of space on the desk of my wife. Her empire there.

Well, my space is a bit cramped. And between the OCD and the bi-polar i kinda have to keep it relatively  clean or my head will pop:D

Now that looks a lovely space to work in Walther.  It looks really serene and calm.  The surroundings look great too - the shape of the windows and the old fashioned radiators.  I like that kind of thing :)  The big plant breaks up the whiteness just right.  So far, you have my favourite Vueing place!!



  wabe    ( ) ( posted at 9:03AM Tue, 08 July 2008  · @3264355

Thanks Gill. It indeed is an old castle where we have our office now since February this year. Very serene really and inspiring. I enjoy still coming here every day.

An old castle? WOW what a wonderful place to work!!  When I win the lottery I'm going to buy me a castle 😄



  wabe    ( ) ( posted at 9:12AM Tue, 08 July 2008  · @3264360

Well, we just rented some rooms in here of course. Not very expensive even but with a lot of atmosphere.

Cool idea! I love seeing where everyone works. Here's my space in what used to be the diningroom. I didn't tidy... much.

Oh and I think we should all move to Wabe's office. it's big enough for the entire forum! ;)

Gosh I'm just looking again at Mark's and Trepz's systems. Fantastic looking speakers and Marks musical equipment looks great! Must sound really nice in both places. I have a couple of tiny speakers i bought at the super market. They make all sorts of fantastic noises too... especially when I set my cell phone down somewhere near them. sheesh!

  gillbrooks    ( ) ( posted at 10:31AM Tue, 08 July 2008  · @3264415

My speakers are built in to the monitor but that's OK because I listen to music on the hifi (covered in a lace cloth - of course!) that's to my right :-)



  Trepz    ( ) ( posted at 10:47AM Tue, 08 July 2008  · @3264421

I will trade my speakers for your dual wide screens any day of the week:D

Hummmm. interesting idea. I shall think about it. ;)

  Akhbour    ( ) ( posted at 5:30PM Tue, 08 July 2008  · @3264632

Some great working places, should be fun to create there!

Mine is a bit crowed, there are all kind of critters in my little part of the living room! ^_-


  gillbrooks    ( ) ( posted at 5:55PM Tue, 08 July 2008  · @3264646

Is that a tigerskin chair I spy ?



  Akhbour    ( ) ( posted at 6:15PM Tue, 08 July 2008  · @3264650

No, it's real artifical zebra skin! ^_-

WOW, can you believe that setup Wabe has?  I think he still lives with his mother.  :^)

LOL - how do you know? And she is doing still the washing for me - no question.  But I can tell you, we have a wonderful morning here - here a little image I just did out of one of the many windows here.

FAKE---I see some of Linda's lush plants and some from Martin Frost in the window of French Kiss! 

Can you believe how clean that room is?  Like they say, a clean desk is a sign of a sick mind :^)

  FrenchKiss    ( ) ( posted at 3:06AM Wed, 09 July 2008  · @3264826

And Walther always told me I wasn't quite right in the head, so...

Okay Gary! Let's see yours! :)

  wabe    ( ) ( posted at 3:20AM Wed, 09 July 2008  · @3264832

Oh well, you forgot to mention the fake fog plants that someone has provided! But do I feel just a bit of jealousy Gary? Good!

I'm green with jealousy over that view from your window wabe!  I'd love to see an outside view of the castle.

No problem, here is a photo taken in February (when we moved in). It is taken from the side you have seen in the first image - and you can guess which building I am in at the moment.

So far Wabe takes it by a landslide.  Gimme a day or so to chase the rats out of my office and remove the cobwebs  from the walls.  I also have to figure out how I am going to extricate the family of racoons living in my desk drawers.  When I have it cleaned up, I will snap a pix for you folks. 

  Akhbour    ( ) ( posted at 12:00PM Wed, 09 July 2008  · @3264966

Ok, but I would like the photo with the racoons! I don't care much about rats but racoons are funny! ^_-
