I am not much of a "clean" workspaces person. They look really nice but all of mine inevitably collect a nice layer of cruft. This is more or less representative of what mine looks like mid-project; I tidy up a little at the end of the night so that I can find things again the next time I'm down here.
Still, too many things and not enough places for all of them. I need to get some more shelves, and take the time to fill up my drawers that I bought a while back.
For research, imagine a nice armchair surrounded by stacks of books.
