It’s not all in your head when it comes to creativity. It can sometimes be influenced by your surroundings, particularly when you’re at home.
Scientists have been finding links between physical space and the creative mind for over two decades. My Creative Space, written by a well-known architect, is the first book to translate this wealth of psychological research into practical methods for shaping your home for maximum creativity.
Here are a few examples of the strategies you’ll learn:
- Which colours inspire you to be your most creative?
- How does the environment affect mental processing?
- For achieving breakthrough insights, the lighting and noise levels must be optimal.
- Messy vs. clean environments: advantages and disadvantages
- How memorabilia can help you break through creative blocks
- Why is ceiling height important?
- What kinds of activities can you do at home to improve your creative problem-solving skills?
Over 200 high-quality photographs of creative workspaces and home interiors from around the world, many of the work of top-tier architects, designers, and at-home creatives, are used to illustrate the book’s 48 techniques.
This book will help you become a better writer, entrepreneur, creative professional, artist, crafter, or enjoy being inventive, whether you seek creativity for pleasure or profit, work from home part- or full-time, or enjoy being inventive. There’s no need for any prior design or psychological knowledge!
