“I need my own home-office,” I said demandingly one morning.
“Ok,” was the answer. “You can have the landing.”
…and that’s where it all began!
I thought long and hard about what I really wanted from the space (whiteness, calmness, minimalism). I had a clear-out but was determined to be realistic about what I needed to have around me and therefore what I would require in the way of storage solutions.
I decided upon a top 4 to promote an inspirational space:
1. Something exciting to sit on your desk and create a bit of atmosphere. I chose a beautiful lamp that looks white and clean in the day, but creates a cosy glow to work by in the evening.
2. A bin in an outrageous colour to add balance to all of the white!
3. Mirrored Storage. Remember – I have only been given a little landing as my space and therefore need to create the impression of as much ‘room’ as I can.
4. Layered blinds in different textures. To soften up the hardness of the desk and provide a bit of shade from the afternoon sun.
I am so interested to find out about other people’s working spaces. Do you have a list of ‘must haves’? Apart from the requisite mug of hot chocolate of course.
