Desk Porn For Bloggers My Workspace Wish List

Running a business from home sees me spending majority of my working day at my desk as many of you can probably relate. With a house move on the horizon, I will soon be planning my new work area (see how I’m already claiming a room all for me!) That’s priorities right there.
 

My Ideal Workspace

Organisation is a must for me. I can’t work with a desk covered in crap. I like trays and files for my paper work and holders to store my pens and highlighters. Although it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to hide them, as everybody helps themselves to them. I really want a pegboard and will probably use some Ikea fixtures to store things in, like some of the ideas you see on Pinterest. I love Pinterest! You can get so many ideas from there, not sure if every project I’ve tried looks as picture perfect though.

 

Home office ideas

 

The desk I have now, I bought from Ikea a couple of years back and it’s been brilliant. It was super cheap and It has loads of space on top and nice and sturdy too, so there will be no need to replace that.

I have one of those black leather look office chairs at the moment, but it takes up far too much room. I’ve never really liked it to be honest (somebody bought it for us). There are some nice cheap office chairs out there, so I am sure I will manage to choose something that fits in well with my theme.
 

Accessories

You just can’t have enough accessories! My favourite being pretty stationery. I am definitely more of a pen to paper kind of person. So I have plenty of notebooks and journals to keep me organised and there is always room for more in my collection.

I love quotes too, so a cheap way to decorate your space/office wall is to create your own quotes on a software such as pic-monkey, print them off and frame them, that way you can customise them in any way you want to. Here are two that I made in under 5 minutes.

Techy Stuff

I am very happy with my current DSLR camera so I won’t be needing a new one for some while. I do my blogging on my Mac and I love it! The best thing I ever did was to switch from PC to Mac. I do have a bit of a mix though when it comes to the keyboard, mouse and monitor, so my aim is to start saving the pennies and replace them with Apple ones.

So that’s my wish-list for my new office when we move, think I’d better get saving up fast!

Do you work from home? Do you have your own workspace or do you work from the sofa?

    I totally get that! I have to have a room to go to, because if I sit on the sofa with the laptop, I would end up watching TV instead, I’m so easily distracted 😉

    At the moment I’m sitting on an IKEA small step ladder as we have no office chair. It’s been driving me nuts but I can’t find a desk chair I actually like. The one we bought originally from IKEA the wheels didn’t move so it was useless on carpet. I want more storage in my desk area so I can get all the clutter off my desk.

    Gorgeous ideas! I currently blog from our dining table lol! I’d love to have my own office but we don’t have the space. I would like to turn one corner of our dining room into an office area though at some point in the future x

    I have a whole pinterest board dedicated to desk porn haha. I have a dream office space in mind and I’m determined to get it. I love some of these. Especially all the white accessories. xx

    Hi Jane, I’d love room for an office or even a quiet corner somewhere, but we don’t have the room, so I blog from the sofa. At work I pinched a hard wooden computer chair as I find it far more comfortable than those leather like chairs…. I do hope you get your dream office!

    xx

    It always makes a huge difference when the work space is nice and tidy but I find it hard most times with kids dumping everything on my desk, from felt tips to a lego brick! Peg board is a great idea.
