DECOR: HOME OFFICE



Hello everyone! It's been too long over here, I've been very busy with work which is good, but also exhausting, and it makes it very difficult for me to have the energy to make new posts. Anyways, now I'm back and I'm very excited with everything that's coming. 

As I said before, I've been working very long hours, and all this time I usually spent it seating at my desk. We are lucky enough to have a room separate that we use as a home office, so we have one desk for L with his millions of screens (ok its 3 screens, but still) and I have mine which is currently a mess. 

Both desks are from IKEA (surprise) and are basically those that you pick the tabletop finish, and the legs. They are ok and useful for using them not everyday, but I'm finding now that the lack of drawers its taking a toll at my once perfectly organized desk. I am currently working remotely for the office that I worked in back in Dallas, and I'm also working on this blog, that even though it might not seem much, it still takes a lot of time, and space apparently. 

I have to have everything written down as I found that is the most efficient way for me to focus and free up my mind with endless to-do lists. So I have one little notebook for my job-job, one for my blog-job, and my agenda (confusing I know), but this is actually working for me. So counting these, plus catalogs that I need to have on hand, expense reports, receipts, letters, etc. it is making it very difficult to keep it nice and clean. 

I started thinking about possible ways to make it more functional, and these where some of my findings:

So, after looking at these and many more pictures, it is obvious that if I want to keep the area clutter free, I need drawers. I was trying to avoid that but since basically every solution for a no desk drawer involves either a box or file thing, and I don't have a space to put it. So, I do need a new desk if I want to accomplish some kind of order in my area. I started looking at some desks and ta-dah! I found the perfect one, quite fast actually, and it is actually very well priced considering how pretty it is. And the best part, its from Target! (virtual high five). I think everyone has been noticing lately but Target is really stepping up its game in regards to furniture and decor, don't you think? Every time I go I want to buy 15 carts of their home decor area alone. 

I'm getting sidetracked but here's the deal. I am getting that desk, but I wanted to go a step further and make a design board of all the things I would like to get that would make my office area really mine. Some of you might already know, but I have an obsession with Paris, like full blown Shoshanna Shapiro (I googled how to write that) from Girls, in my heart that is. But getting everything Eiffel Tower themed would be too tacky, so I tried to mix it up with prints and other accesories. And the cherry on top, a touch of pink, because I love the color, but don't want to make it look like a ballerina's closet exploded. 

Here it is!

I have always loved that chair, and finally last year my parents sent it to me as a gift! It is my dream come true. Even though the desk has only two drawers, that's really all I need, I didn't want one with a million drawers because then I would fill them up with things that I probably don't need and just clutter the whole thing again. So I'm trying to stay very lean as far as office supplies. The mini gallery wall is just full of things that make me happy and that I can look at and meditate. And the table lamp is another thing I would really love to get, since I'm all for mood lighting. And the less I have to look at an ugly ceiling fan the better. 

Here's where to get all the stuff:
1. PAPER SORTER. 
2. BONJOUR WIRE SCULPTURE.
3. KRISTIN PRINT. 
4. FABRIC BOX FILE.
5. CAFE PRINT.
6. PENCIL CUP.
7. STICKY NOTE DISPENSER.
8. METAL FRAME & PRINT. 
9. EIFFEL TOWER SCISSORS.
10. WHITE TABLE LAMP.
11. SCALLOPED BONE FRAME.
12. CORK BULLETIN BOARD.
13. FLOATING SHELF.
14. PEACOCK FIGURINE.
15. CASPER ARMCHAIR.
16. WRITING DESK.
17. RUG.

Hope you liked it!
