Mountains. Jan 23

Most definitely, but being in the mountains, not mountains in the distance. Every time I was there at big heights, the Internet was non-existing or patchy, so it can only be my enjoyment space, not work space.

My ideal workspace view: Jan 23

The ocean, the mountains, or the countryside - any of these three. And I agree, not in the far distance.

My computer monitor.

Another stupid question from our anonymous department.

My ideal work space would be a log cabin at the end of the back garden, just like this:

Ocean or countryside Jan 23

I am not a mountain person, but I love wide views. I have worked in a room pretty high on a hill overlooking the Atlantic (including gorgeous sunsets and a fantastic tropical rainstorm) which was great.
At the moment I am overlooking a snowy park with birds which is also pretty good!

Working on a beach. Jan 23

I tried it a couple of times. I can't remember a place where my focus was lower, was pretty much impossible for me to work. Overly relaxing. Great for relaxation, not so great for working

My current one - i.e. my garden and its contents.

The one I have now... Jan 23

From my workspace I can see the countryside and the mountains in the distance.

The sky and a couple of trees Jan 23

Enough variation for when I need a pause to think, but not enough going on to distract me.

At present the sky is hazy blue, no clouds, and I can see the evergreen tree, and the red tiles of the neighbour's roof. In a couple of months (I hope) they will be largely hidden by the plum tree, white with blossom, but they may not. It grows in sandy soil, and it produced a bumper crop last year. It may take a rest this year, you never know!

Then the plum tree is green all summer, and I can see the plums appearing, growing larger and turning red, before the leaves turn yellow and blow away.

At other times I can see clouds, rain, mist or, if I'm lucky, glorious sunsets.

Mountains Jan 23

Preferably with a waterfall.

But my present view is also really nice, the sky, an abundance of trees and a cemetery. It looks really pretty whenever we happen to have snow. And... it's an unobstructable view.

The ocean Jan 23

I would love to have a 24/7 view of the ocean, but it's only 15 minutes away and I'm very happy in my home, so I'm not complaining. I look out on a park with trees.

like Neilmac Jan 23

I have worked in an office with a view of the Sacré Coeur, it was delightful. In winter I would arrive at sunrise with everything tinged with rosy warmth.

Also worked in a place looking out onto a quiet street near the opera house, with little old ladies taking their pugs for a walk and an opera singer who would warm his voice up on his way to afternoon rehearsals. Apparently a lot of the neighbours were famous, but I never recognised anybody.

Now, my office overlooks the garden. Like Christine, I have a plum tree, and a cherry tree and rose bushes. I mustn't look too hard in case I start noticing work to be done because that is frustrating when I have a deadline to meet.
