I am super excited for this weeks workspace feature. Why you ask… because it is Julie Murphy of Jack and Lulu and I absolutely adore her! Since, the first day I met Julie at the National Stationery show years ago… I knew we could be friends. She exudes warmth, kindness and creativity and has that wonderful bubbly personality that just draws you in.
If I could instantly transport myself into Julie’s home office, I would. Who wouldn’t want to sit at her desk, dream up ideas and gaze out the amazing floor to ceiling french doors. What I love about Julie’s space is the lack of clutter. At first, I couldn’t imagine anyone could work on such a clean desk. But then Julie explained that while a bigger working surface would be nice, keeping it small helps her stay neat and organized. She is able to rotate books for inspiration and keep papers, clippings and files stored away in bins. Working at home in Connecticut (their distribution office is in North Carolina where her sister-in-law and business partner, Karen, lives), Julie finds solace in her tiny corner where she can keep the Legos and Madeline toys of her kids at bay.
Not only is Julie’s workspace fabulous but her home is to die for. She was kind enough to share photos of her house so we can get the entire idea of what surrounds her while she dreams, creates and invents her fabulous paper line. Thanks Julie… you’re the best!
