#BEDM – Workspace

My workspace has quite a few functions: Its my office, my craft room, my gym and more often than not, a bit of a dumping ground. I would love for it to be more organised and have a space for everything and I’m constantly looking for ways to make everything fit within it. I’m failing at this at the moment so have started a Workspace Pinterest board to see if I can some ideas and inspiration. Here’s a few of my favourites.

I love the prints and simplicity of this workspace. Having inspiration is so important in a workspace and I love the typography in these.

Now this is what I’m talking about! Check out all the organisation here. Little drawers for paper, pens, odds and ends, shelves and cups for other bits and pieces. Perfection!

I love having the space to spread out when I’m working. Paper, pens, post-its etc are always all over the place, as well as having somewhere for my computer, my phone and my Filofax. Ideally, I’d also love somewhere for my sewing machine and other bits and pieces that I use to make things.

What does your workspace look like? What’s the most important feature for you?

#BEDN ~ Workspace

I realise this is a day late, but hey ho. Better late than never! I am quite particular about my workspace. Everything has to have a purpose if it’s on my workspace, but at the same time, I like ‘stuff’. Not only that, everything has to be tidy. So if one of my coasters moves ever so slightly, I need to line it back up nicely. Don’t judge me! I like it tidy! Apologies about the quality of light in my office. It’s bad, hence the need for fairy lights!

Desk Poppy the office dog Inspiration board Pretty techThe desk came from a local reclamation yard, bought for £30, if memory serves. It’s an old pub table that we sanded down & oiled. The chair is a pretty standard office chair covered in a Welsh blanket for two reasons: 1 – to pretty it up a bit and 2 – to help keep me warm! The old style phone works, but we can’t use it because it’s incompatible with our phone line, apparently! I like to keep stuff I use regularly out & tidy, hence the jars. (Plus they help to hide the not-so-pretty but ever so necessary tech stuff!) They’re cheap containers but look nice too. No office is complete without a dog in my view! And Poppy spends most of the day curled up on my Nana chair (so called as it was bought with money left to me by my Nana).

I like to keep inspirational things around me, but as we had the walls freshly plastered when we moved in, I’ve been reluctant to blu tak stuff to them and have only recently put pictures up. As a freelancer, I can work wherever I want, as long as there’s wifi & tea. But I’ve made my workspace just right and comfy, plus I always have tea, so I don’t work in cafes that often. Plus, I like just having to turn round & look at Poppy’s little face – it reminds me that I’m very lucky to be able to work from home and it reminds me why I’m working.
