Why the birds? :<) They are my Cordon Bleu finches and they watch me work every day. They love the light from the window and the classical music playing - I also love Adele - and their sweet little noises are an enjoyable background when I am working.
Before I posted I made a quick sketch of my work space - which takes up half of my living room - to give you an idea of the layout. It is sits in the front right corner of the room and is basically a square that I work inside so that I can access everything while sitting in my chair. My apartment is very small so I need to have everything very organized and compact - especially in my work space.
