Creativity isn’t all in your head. Sometimes it depends on your surroundings — especially when you’re at home.
For over twenty years, scientists have been discovering connections between physical space and the creative mind. Written by a noted architect, My Creative Space is the first book to turn this rich trove of psychological research into practical techniques for shaping your home for maximum creativity.

Here’s a sampling of the techniques you’ll learn about:

  • Which colors lead to peak creative performance
  • How furnishings influence mental processing
  • Optimal lighting and noise levels for achieving breakthrough insights
  • Pros and cons of messy versus neat environments
  • How memorabilia can break creative logjams
  • Why ceiling height matters
  • Which home-based activities enhance creative problem solving
  • And more

Illustrating the book’s 48 techniques are over 200 high-quality photos of creative workspaces and home interiors from around the world, many the work of top-tier architects, designers, and at-home creatives.

Whether you pursue creativity for pleasure or profit, work from home part- or full-time, whether you’re a writer, entrepreneur, creative professional, artist, crafter, or simply enjoy being inventive, this book will help you do it better. No prior expertise in design or psychology required!
