When we moved home back in September last year, we gained a lot more space than we had previously in our 2 bed flat and we didn’t even have space for a computer table, let alone a complete office. We had planned on making one of our rooms into an office, but the boys’ space became priority and so we still don’t have an office (it became a play room instead!), but we do now have a computer table, which is progress! It is still in a small space, but I am planning on making it nice & cosy for both us to use – me for my blogging, and hubby for his games.
We’re all dreamers though aren’t we, and if we don’t have our ideal space, we are nearly always dreaming about what it would be like. I would love a loft office with a slanted roof to have a VELUX blind, it would feel like a proper little hideaway! This is what I would imagine my office to be like:
I like bright colours rather than monochrome, but for an office I would go for something more calming & muted, so along the lines of a lemon yellow and white. Read on to take a look at my office basics wish list!
I love corner desks and workstations and I think this Micke one from IKEA looks simple, modern & stylish and could be jazzed up with yellow accessories.
A comfortable office chair is a must but as I am always up & about while working, this Shortcut one from Turnstone would be ideal.
I love floor lamps in an office as they don’t take up valuable desk space, and I love this Bauhaus Ochre Yellow one, it’s modern & stylish.
One of the main focal points would be the window, so I would love a VELUX blind, one from the Colour Collection by Scholten & Baijings (grey with lemon stripes).
As well as these basics, I would also choose some yellow desk accessories; a desk tidy, paper trays, and a white vase with a single yellow flower. I think these would set the room off just nicely and it would be a calming place to work, when I find the time of course!
What would be on your office basics wish list?
