Currently my ‘office’ is a bit of a dumping ground. It’s a lovely space, with a brilliant window nook for a desk, but it’s full of higgeldy-piggedly furniture and it just isn’t conductive to working. I did buy a fairly nice desk from IKEA, but my hungover friend put it together for me, and now the desk resembles her hangover in that it’s a bit wobbly and the drawer won’t open.
I have a few other things on my to do list first before I can start on my office renovations (wedding, pass my driving test, go self-hosted on my blog!) but I can’t resist browsing for my dream furniture and accessories!
Like this beautiful Ginsberg desk
It’s quite pricey at £269, but if you are going to buy something classic that’s going to last I don’t think you could go wrong with a piece like this.
A more budget version would be the Lillasen Desk from IKEA
I really like the legs on this one, and it’s also attractive because it’s made from sustainable wood – bamboo!
I think this desk would look great with this lamp, also from IKEA on it. This is the Riggad LED Lamp, and I love it because I’m such a massive gadget geek – it has a base you can put your phone on to charge!! *lusty face*
I accidentally stumbled upon the Marks & Spencers homeware range yesterday when I was at Westfields Stratford (I got dragged to the top floor by my friends who were using the Bureau de Change that lives on the top floor of M&S. Who knew?!)
Anyway, I digress. I chanced upon this gorgeous chair, which I think would also go with either desk – the colours are lovely, and I think you could theme the office colour scheme around it. It’s brighter in real life than the picture.
Seeing as this is going to be my thinking, dreaming and wishing space, I might need an inspirational quote. I never like the ones I see in shops, so I think I would create my own with a website like BeFunky. I quickly knocked this one up using a picture I took on our trip to Derbyshire in February and paired it with my favourite quote.
I’m busily pinning all these ideas and other various bits and bobs (I am such a sucker for stationery!) to my Pinterest board – check it out if you want!
What would you have in your dream home office? I’d love to see any photos of your existing home working oasis’!
