Now that I am working from home, as a blogger and freelance writer, my attention in our new home is being drawn more towards creating my dream home office. I am lucky that we have the space downstairs to have an office, for I do love having somewhere that is dedicated to my working area. At the moment it is quite a plain, dull space – magnolia walls and old furniture that doesn’t really compliment the new-build home we now live in.
I love the above photo – that rug is fabulous! (source).
My current desk is too small. My diary and notepad fall off it and my printer is crushed into the corner! So Hubby is going to build me a desk that spans the room. Eeeeek! Also, after Christmas the walls are being painted by a decorator. I will either go for white or something equally as bright I think as the room isn’t all that large, and I don’t want it feeling too dark in there.
I am therefore scouring and pinning ‘dream home offices’ like mad on Pinterest. I seem to be drawn to the Scandinavian/Nordic style of white, modern, clean living. With statement prints, bold stationery & prints and practical storage.
I love the idea of having it quite girly in there too – with feminine touches such as plants, cushions and maybe a fluffy cream rug on the floor. My Hubby hardly ever uses the space himself and so it can really be all mine! For my writing inspiration, and for me and my devoted iMac.
