Sprucing up my Home Office

As you may have noticed I have been throwing myself into this blog of mine with gusto. I am really pleased with the way things are going right now and a few months back I decided to set myself up a little corner in my kitchen to call my office. And when I say little I mean little! Squarely nestled away at the back of the kitchen aside my dining table sits a desk.

At odds with my black, white and purple colour scheme the silver and wood style desk is where I work. It has everything I need for now. It houses my PC comfortably along with my printer and associated  junk  necessities ie stationary, coffee cup, notepad(s) and diaries, as in plural, because 1 is never enough (likely to get lost).

I have a shelf  loitering around awaiting the day when it is put to some use that isn’t solely gathering dust and I threw a cute little wall sticker up. It is by no means the polished, tidy space you expect from a blogger, rather a hastily put together chop shop of items proudly given the (unworthy) title of Tracey’s Home Office.

It is missing one thing though. A chair. There is a distinct lack of somewhere comfy to park my ample behind whilst I lose myself fully to a whole blissful uninterrupted day of procrastinating writing. The chair currently masquerading quite badly as an office chair is in fact a dining table chair. Super comfy to sit on for when I’m eating my dinner. Not so comfy when you haven’t moved for 3 hours and are losing all feeling in your bum! True Story.

If feel another wishlist coming on don’t you…………. In a true case of keeping up with the Jones’ I can waste hours, yes hours, searching for desks and chairs to make my little corner more appealing and comfortable. I have visions in my head of what it would look like and me sat there in my new swanky chair like the gorgeous Eames ones you can purchase at Nest.co.uk.

Or the black glass curved desk from Very I have my eye on currently as it matches my dining table. Essential qualities for a desk in my opinion however other qualities include enough space to comfortably work on and house everything I need it to.

This is my next project. Now I can tick off redecorating the living room off my never ending to-do list, I am enlisting the help of Olivia’s dad in bringing my pc up to scratch to help me be more productive and less reliant on my laptop. The laptop is currently looking a little worse for wear but has done me proud.

What items would you have in your office wishlist? Do you have any tips for me or where at home do you work from?

    I dream of having a dedicated work space in our little terrace. It can be hard to read the blogs about someone’s renovated office while I’m perched on the edge of the sofa looking at the piles of toys and baby stuff in every corner of the room. Maybe one day…

    I love the curved desk was considering it for myself for my home office as well, but not sure if it is totally what i am looking for as seems a little smaller than i may need as i work from home and also need a desk for my hobbie of crafting

    I love that wall sticker! Perfect spot for it. I spent hours searching for my perfect chair for our home office too. It’s important when you spend so much time sitting on it!!
