MY HOME OFFICE SPACE


So this is where all the magic happens! 

We had an unexpected Sunday inspiration moment back in December and we went and bought a new desk to our little office corner in our apartment. This time, we didn't head to Ikea as a first thing when we were looking for a new desk. We tried something different instead and chose one from Jysk. It was such a refreshing change. Almost all our furniture are from Ikea and now we've had this little "growing up" moment and we've tried to look stuff for our apartment from elsewhere for a change. 

We found this desk at a sale, it was only 70€ and that was such a great find! Desks are usually pretty expensive so I'm really happy that we found a pretty one with such a decent prize. 


I find myself so inspired working at this little corner of mine. I call it my little creative corner. That grid actually used to be a grid basket we found from Bauhaus. J just took it to work and made a wonderful wall piece of it. I'm absolutely loving it. At first, I was thinking to put some Polaroid pictures in it, but then I found that wonderful free printable of a calendar from Pinterest, so I placed that there instead of those pictures. For the pictures I found a new location and I placed them hanging from that wonderful light garland. 

The light garland and those succulents are from Ikea and yes, we stopped by Ikea during our little trip too! It was right on the way so we couldn't resist. Those succulents were 5,99€ and the light garland was 9,99€. 

I'm so happy with this little space of mine! I would absolutely love to have a desk lamp somewhere close, but at the moment I believe I'm going to do just fine with the garland and a couple of candles. 
It's amazing how a little change can make one feel so much more inspired! This is a definitely a place where I'll be hanging most of my days before Dino is born.

  1. You design your place beautifully. Did you knit the blanket or did you buy it? :)

    2. That's amazing. 🙂 Can I have two more question? Where did you buy the yarn and how much you did need? :)

      Delete
    3. I bought the yarn from Aliexpress, just type in "chunky wool yarn" and you should be able to find them :-) For this one I used 2000g of yarn & I also made another one which is a bit larger and for that I used 4000g of yarn. It depends how large you want it to be, but I would recommend that 2000g as a minimum :D

  4. Light and clean space, no wonder is inspiring you. I love that watch, I am a big fan of watches of any dimensions and of cups of coffee. Oh, right, I don't see any cup on your desk, don't you really drink anything while working?

    1. Hahah, I do drink while I'm working. Water or coffee and I also like to keep the desk clean so I don't leave any dishes hanging :D

      Delete
    2. Oh, so you clean your desk immediately after drinking something? I'm impressed!
      I clean my desk only at the end of the day and there would be about 3-4 cups there: one for cappuccino, one for tea, a glass of water and/or a cup of natural juice.

    3. Haha, yeah - it's a habit :D

  15. Love it! I love the grid on the wall, and the addition of some greenery :). I'm currently working on changing up the spare room into an office/ blogging space, and I'm so lost as to which direction I want to go.

  27. I too keep a guitar in my office. It sometimes helps to grab it and strum a couple random tunes when stuck in the creative process. Another instrument which can be instrumental (yes, I just did that) in spontaneous breakout sessions is a kazoo. It has the added benefit of hiding poor singing skills.
