Office Details.


I’ve been promising a tour of my office for so long now, you guys have probably given up! I’m almost ready to give you a full tour, but I thought I’d show a few highlights until then…

I like to keep this room very white, mainly because I find it’s lightย and happy to work in, but it also makes taking blog photos so easy – they always come out so lovely and bright! I’d love to have a pink or maybe patterned wall in here, but I doubt I could ever decide on something I’d like long enough.

My desk is quite simple, I have a Block wire mesh board behind it with a few bits and bobs attached, along with a Dowsing & Reynolds lamp. I try and keep my workspace quite clear so I can get on with work, but I do find that it’s all too easy to keep putting cute trinkets and vases of flowers on top! Although I couldn’t resist adding in my cute skull cactus planter – how cool?

The wire K letter is from Oliver Bonas, one of my favourite stores for finding cute home accessories. This was actually copper at one point, but I painted it gold to fit the room. That’s the kind of person I am, okay?
The K print is from EYI Love, a Glasgow-based store that I highly recommend checking out – especially if you like marble and metallics.

On the opposite side of the wall sit some IKEA Alex drawers, which are filled with makeup and accessories! I pretty much have a drawer for everything over here – from sunglasses to Essie polishes, and even haircare. Organising these drawers is one ofย my favourite things to do… I should probably be more embarrassed to admit that, huh?

Also in the room is my beautiful West Elm Mid-Century desk, in the most incredible shade of mint green. I use this as a dressing table, and I’ve provided only a sneak peek for you in this post as I’m waiting to put my new mirror up. All will be revealed soon!

Finally, cabinets line the far wall – these hold most of the shop stock, and also a few of my own bits and bobs. It’s so handy to have this storage space, it really keeps the space clean and tidy.

Look out for a full tour coming soon!

    I actually feel emotional looking at your office, it’s beautiful bahaha! Our flat doesn’t have the space to have a proper office so we have an IKEA desk in the corner of our bedroom that my boyfriend has insisted is his desk because he has a desktop PC and needs to watch his ‘lad’ YouTube videos. Bleh. I’ve tried to persuade him to drop ยฃ1,000 and buy an iMac but no. He’s actually broken the cupboard on the desk too where his PC hides so I just want to start again and get a whole new desk and make it my own blogging/work space! I really like the wire mesh board to hang bits and pieces from and the West Elm desk looks PERFECT! Do you think if I show him this post he’ll let me have my own office space?! I can dream…!

    • HAHA oh Lucy, you are adorable. I definitely think you should persuade him to create a workspace… for inspiration purposes. x

  • Debi Heys

    So many sunglasses and so many nail polishes, wow! I absolutely love your design – especially the grid wall that you’ve clipped the pictures to – looks gorgeous. I’m obsessed – I’ll be coming back to this when it’s time to redecorate!

    Ok that is Office Goals much! One thing I wish I did have was an office, I do all my blogging from my lap which is comfy but I wish I had a dedicated room, also where I could potentially start up a collection like this!

  • I’ve got the same West Elm desk in white, it’s a lovely design but I need to do more with it in terms of the storage (and it came marked SOB) – why didn’t I think about painting all the copper letters/items a silver colour? I always struggle to find silver pieces!

    Ive been waiting to find out where that mesh memo board is from for agesss! I absolutely love it, but don’t think I’ll have enough room for both a dressing table and a desk to house it in my new flat. Can’t wait for the full tour; this is all just Pinterest worthy!xx
