In case you missed my Guest Post for Let it Be Beautiful …
I’ve always dreamed of having a perfect space to work in and out of and as of a few months ago, the hubby and I moved into our first house (rental, but still … a house!) Until this major life move, we had existed in tiny apartments with tiny bathrooms and tiny closets and hardly enough room for a Costco shop, let alone an office. But now the “office” is filled with crafts (trust me, a wonderful thing to be full of), but I buy crafts every time I get bit with an idea, so the piles are growing, and my sweet little desk, it’s nearly bare. I do most of my work perched on my sofa, staring woefully at the office just across the way. Clearly my little office/craft-room needs an upgrade and a bit of TLC!
Because I know everyone dreams of a glamorous office (I mean, who doesn’t pin gorgeous workspaces on Pinterest?), I thought I’d break down what’s in my dream office first …
1. If I’m going to try out this whole fashion blogger thing with my very own fashion blogger office, I’d like to look the part! I’d love a bold chair (preferably with grommets or animal print!), a bold floor rug, and a sleek desk big enough to accommodate all of my junk. #hoarder
2. An inspiration wall. I’m torn between a chalkboard wall and a corkboard wall, though I’d venture to guess the corkboard is easier for tacking idea after idea.
3. Organization! I dream in organization — in perfectly-placed shelves and ergonomic storage. I’d store documents, ideas, and most importantly – my crafts! Also, the Container Store is magical.
So there you have it! Now it’s your turn. Tell me, what is it you look for in a perfect place to work/get-inspired? Are you happy on the sofa? Do you work best at a desk? Are you a neat freak or a stuff-collector?
