Workspace Inspiration

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 andย 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.

Wooden Desk

1 / 2

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.

Art Work


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.

Storage Solutions

5 / 6

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

7 / 8

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.

Bill’s Cafe Restaraunt

I knew whilst I was in London that I wanted to visit Bills. I’ve seen so many cute posts about it & heard nothing but good things. So I thought the day before my brother ran the Marathon would be the perfect time. I went with my husband, brother & mum, none of us had been before.

I took loads of photos whilst I was there, I may have been a little excited! There are a few Bill’s in London and decided to go to the one in Covent Garden Wellington Street. We made a great choice, it was a lovely restaurant so cute inside and the staff couldn’t have been nicer. They have paid great attention to detail and we would recommend it 100%.


We ate there for breakfast and the menu was fab. All of us enjoyed what we ordered and it was very fresh and super yummy. I would love to go back for Dinner next time.
