New pieces for my home office

A home office

Ever since we moved into our new build home 6 months ago, one of my favourite functional rooms (aside from the playroom) has been my home office. Oh, I love it. I adore being able to have a space that is solely for my writing and creativity – it definitely helps having a separate space away from the rest of the home, that is free from distraction.

I write in there a lot during the week and use it a great deal in the evenings too, once the children are in bed. I can also keep our home files and folders in here, as well as the technology and ALL the charging wires that go with them!

I realised recently that most of the images that I have been pinning on Pinterest, via my board ‘dream home offices’ have been fairly neutral. Very modern, simple, chic and minimalist. White…with a hint of glamour. And I do like a home office to look and appear tidy and neat.

Follow mummy of boy girl’s board Dream home office on Pinterest.

And so, thoroughly inspired by Pinterest (who isn’t??) when I was in pursuit of a new office chair – I decided to go with a white, padded one. This executive one from Wayfair is gorgeous and I am so happy with it. It looks so stylish and trendy and really compliments my desk and the colour scheme. Yet is really comfortable. The mid-back height is fine, and I don’t feel as though I am slouching despite this. I am sitting back in the seat and it is very comfortable. The height adjusts too, which is handy when my tall Husband wants to sit down and use the iMac! I even assembled it myself when it arrived! Very easy!

An office also needs to be practical as well as looking good too. Let’s be honest. And so storage is therefore essential to any home study – keeping files and paperwork out of sight and ordered is really important. This brilliant trolley 3-drawer filing cabinet from Wayfair is perfect. It sits nicely underneath the white desk that my clever Hubby built me, and can be placed on wheels too – for easy moving whenever I need to put it somewhere else. It has made a big difference to keeping a tidy home office already!

There is now absolutely NO excuse not to meet all my monthly deadlines and get as creative as possible, is there?

Love, Jess x

      Such great choice, for every taste too. I think they might just sell everything you could want ha ha! xx

    Oh i just love that chair, it is exactly to my taste. I like things to be tidy too, that’s why I can’t do shabby chic to save my lefe. Thank you for hosting x

    I’ve been pinning home office ideas like mad too – so now following your board to steal/pin some more! Love your new items from Wayfair, will have a look on there when I finally get round to doing mine! (I’m not being lazy, I just have to pluck up the courage to ask my landlady to remove a massive wardrobe from the spare bedroom) #HomeEtc

    I do love that chair – and loving all the white. It’d definitely encourage me to be tidy – well to start with – isn’t it funny how a colour can do that? Thanks for hosting #homeetc xx

      Thanks, and I know what you mean! The white is quite a tidy colour! xx

    • January 21, 2016 / 1:58 pm

      Ha ha! I do like to work in a neat area! xx

    • January 21, 2016 / 2:43 pm

      Thanks lovely! I feel as though I made such a good decision – I did swoon when it arrived ha ha xx

  15. January 21, 2016 / 8:33 pm

    What a beautiful space to work in, I would love a white room with no clutter just for me! The chair looks really comfy, but really stylish too. I really should sort out my desk, as he drawers have filling bars in so I could get really organised and get some filing pockets. However they are currently just filled up with paper and bits!

    • January 22, 2016 / 8:28 am

      I love a good sort out! Good luck xx

  16. January 21, 2016 / 9:09 pm

    Love it! I absolutely can’t wait to get started on my office. It’s a strange shape and has a sloping floor (hello caster wheels, goodbye desk) but I see it as a challenge! I love the sleek simplicity of your home office, perfect for getting away to. #HomeEtc

    Aaah I LOVE that pic of you and the littles!!!! Absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!! WOW — your new office is lovely Jess! I absolutely cannot WAIT until mine is finished! I’ve been dreaming about it for so long! Such a glamorous office chair — it’s fabulous. I have a kneeling chair at my desk — it’s not very sexy but it’s VERY comfortable! I might give it a face lift when I’ve got time — maybe paint it and give it a new fabric seat. Thanks for being the bestest cohost ever 🙂 xxxx #HomeEtc

    I was sure I had already commented on this, but I must have got sidetracked. Love that chair, I would love a proper office space, I have created a desk space but its nothing like having a proper office. Love the new blog layout too x
