Since moving into this place and having the luxury of setting up a home office you guys have been requesting a bit of a look around. It’s not finished and I don’t love everything about it but I thought I’d share with you a few photos as I had a bit of clean up last week. Disclaimer: my office is NEVER this clean.
This space is my office and I also have my vanity in here because obviously beauty is a large part of what I talk about so I like having them both together as it’s more functional for me. It is quite a big room! We live in an older rental so it’s been tricky to fill whilst keeping in mind that eventually when we buy our place will most likely be smaller. I decided to go with simple Ikea table tops and legs for now. It’s not the prettiest but it’s a huge work station so it’s functional. On the wall I have a peg board I’ve painted white with a plan of the year. I’m a visual person and every year I try to use a diary and it never works!!! I even bought one this year and I just haven’t been able to through myself into it. The reason I have them on pieces I’ve ripped off a planner pad is because I actually use these to highlight when I’ve completed content and if I’m writing out a month of ideas sometimes it can get messy so using these ones allows me to rearrange and redo the months as often as I need.
My work space is fairly cluttered but when I have it all clear it gives me anxiety. I like having photos, prints and plants around to make it feel more homely. The same goes with my make up area. I like having things out and accessible so I don’t have to go hunting around in draws for items. Alot of websites will recommend having a clear space and although I agree a bomb site won’t help you be productive – find a balance that works for YOU.
I don’t have the best storage solution for my photography props but the corner stash doesn’t bother me. I thought about getting a bookshelf but as I said we’re in a rental so I don’t want to buy too many things until we buy a place. I’ve labelled most things above. Let me know if you have any questions about any of the items :)
What do you think of my work space?
