This year I wanted to create a new space for me to create and keep my work organized. I thought what better way than to create a new office space here at home, away from the distractions of my kid’s toys, laundry that needs to be folded etc. I also wanted space where I had total freedom to bring on my favorite feminine touches and not have to worry about it being kid friendly.
This amazing futon from Novogratz actually doubles as a bed which is great for when we have guests but also nice for when I want to lounge or the kids want to lounge while I’m in there. (Hint: Stayed Tuned For a Giveaway!) I also like utilizing the wall space for prints that inspire me. I found these prints on Desenio, they carry a huge selection of prints and they are all on trend and affordable! Tip: If you don’t yet have frames for your prints, pick up some cute washi tape as a temporary or permanent solution!
This is my favorite spot, It stores all my favorite items, my cosmetics, skin care, and hair products. Its an all in one station where I can get ready without many distractions and having everything right in front of me. I like to keep it as clutter free as possible, I opted for these cute bins from IKEA that come in various sizes which have been helpful in having plenty of storage while trying to maintain a minimalist look. I also keep some acrylic storage options for my everyday items like brushes, foundation, etc. These shelves I got from IKEA are great and go super well with my minimalist look.
I love the look of these campaign desks and this one from Hayneedle was really affordable! I had the hardest time picking a desk chair, one with wheels wouldn’t work and I really wanted something I can sit comfortably in. This chair was the perfect touch of modern/Scandinavian for my space. I love the touches of nailhead trim and texture of the lined stitched velvet, I just thought it fit so perfectly with my space! My huge fuax monstera leafs are from IKEA as well as the glass vase they are in. They have really afforadle faux florals and vases!
My splurge item was definitely this huge brass floor mirror from CB2. I really wanted something that would open up and bring in more light, and this mirror did just that! Its the perfect spot for outfit selfies and it looks really chic! The small bench is from HomeGoods draped with a fur piece which I also found at HomeGoods. I’ve gotten so many people asking about my little glass vase, I purchased it from Urban Outfitters last year and its no longer on thier site for me to link. I shop there often for decor items especially for vases or planters they have a great selection!
Overall I am so happy with my office space and very pleased how well my kids respect this home office as “mommy’s work room”. There is still a couple things I would like to add in the near future, specifically thinking of an inspo wall with a collage space very soon! If you work from home or just like being creative it’s important to create a space or room that will inspire you and your work. I hope I have inspired some of you to create a beautiful space or even a kid-free space for you to let those creative juices flow!
