Today I wanted to share our home office with you guys. When we first moved into this little farm cottage the one things we knew we wanted was a home office/study. We wanted to create a little haven where we could feel inspired to work and study without feeling distracted by clutter and mess. We tried to keep the space clean and express our unique personalities in our decor, we also got our frugal on and got most of the stuff for free, charity shops, made by yours truly and gifted from lovely parents.
Take a gander into our little abode.
^^ I promise we do get work done in here.
^^ No office is complete without some motivational art all over the wall.
^^ I used a clipboard as a frame to add a touch of whimsy and so I can interchange artwork. The little chalkboard is for writing love notes of course! I also added a string of photos.
^^ Bright coloured frames and motivational quotes, to really get you working.
^^ I have an unnatural fear of frogs, so this is the closest I will ever get to batmaning it, and frog woman just doesn’t sound like a superhero I would want to be. The little pot plant in the background has rosemary in it. I read an article about rosemary improving memory.
^^ This guy is always studying.
^^ everybody needs a pompom garland in their office.
^^ My reading corner. I would suggest everyone arm knit themselves a blanket. These babies are so warm and cosy!
^^ This was Carl’s grandfathers chair, that was given to his mother. She covered all her furniture in this hideous material, because she had 3 boys running a mock in her house. I would have loved to get this reupholstered in a nicer fabric.
^^ You can’t have a reading chair without a basket of yarn. That’s just crazy.
^^ I lightly spray painted this wooden ladder to give it a more weathered look. The little bookcase to the right is just 4 black crates.
^^ The bottom ladder step is filled with books.
^^ We are plant crazy in this house.
^^ Starwars lego, biker mice from Mars and harry potter books? We nerd it up hard in here.
^^ on top of the crates we have old cameras and a basket filled with this and that.
^^ Books, books, books and my grandmothers wedding cake topper.
^^ We have a long ledge above the cupboard, we have 4 crates up there filled with nonsense and on the other side we have musical instruments and this plant.
I hope you enjoyed the little tour of our home office. This post was inspired by WeWork a community of co-working office spaces across the U.S, they have great rates and is a mighty fine option for everything from start ups to freelancers. Go check them out
