I work from home & my desk / workspace needs to be functional, I spend more time than I’d like to admit sat at my desk and over the past few weeks I have been thinking of giving this area a makeover. I love to look at how other people style & organise their study, workshops & desks so I thought I would share a few of my favourites with you.
I love the exposed floorboards in both photos & I really like the wooden legs on the desks, I know that wood will play a part in my office space and currently have an old school desk as my computer desk. My husbands dad rescued it years ago when a local School was throwing them all away. I might give it a coat of white paint just to give it a little life & make it look fresh and bright.
I love having inspirational art work, photos & objects in my office. Things that are pretty to look at & that also hold memories, its nice to have an inspirational space. I have so many prints and photos that need to be framed. To find & spray paint some frames is one of my goals for the first half of 2015. Lets see how that works out.
My office needs lots of storage for all my papers, shipping materials and work bits. I love industrial looking storage, metal cabinets & drawers in particular, especially oversized ones. There are some great auctions near where I live & they often have old office / industrial furniture, I am going to keep an eye out for a few pieces.
Desk styling – I love that this is a thing & I need to organise my desk so it looks more cool & less dumping ground. Some people have such a talent for this sort thing, I don’t but I am going to give it a go. I think a space needs to be functional but also inspire you to be creative and thats what I need from my office / workshop. I love the metal accents and want to incorporate those into my space.
Do you have a space you work from in your home, does it inspire you? 2015 is the year I’m going to make my space more creative & a space that I enjoy working in.
