home office v 2.0

My home office 2007

so today i cleared the crap off the desks, put my purchases away, reorganised and rearranged my home office/study/guest bedroom. just wanted it to be less cluttered.

I typically like things within reach so my typical desktop has stationery, paper, laptop, lamp, coaster and tray for letters/papers. I was tired of seeing “purely functional” and needed to bring pretty onto my desktop with what I had to work with.


My desk with the breast cancer pink cutting board as the mat.

I needed something to store my wrapping paper and rolls. So I found this bargain of a cane bottle rack for it :) One of my more ingenious ideas.

My supplies cupboard. I hate dust and needed to have it stored clearly but behind glass. I chose white because it keeps things bright.

The other side of my home office. I’m standing right in front of the supplies cupboard.

It’s a small space, but it’s my little space for now. I am blessed to have something to call home, however un-ideal.
