I’m always super nosy about where people work from – here’s a post from September 2009 about my very old desk setup back in Wells Road and since I have made my own little desk space while Alex is working from home, I thought I’d share my current space.
This is our second spare bedroom which I furnished about 18 months ago, the last room that we finished. The sofa is a Friheten sofa bed from Ikea, and it’s great for this space because the bottom part lifts up and out, and then the back flips down, so you don’t have to move too much out of the way when it’s in bed mode. The duvet, etc all store underneath so the bed can be made up in a few minutes. The big grey cushions and the pink blanket are also from Ikea, and the pink cushions are from Target. The mirror was from HomeGoods and the stool is another Ikea buy.
The desk is a bamboo side table that Alex used to have in his room, but he just got a new desk set so I claimed this – it’s just the right size to fit under this window with all the things I need. The chair is a swivel chair I found on Amazon, I didn’t want a chair that was obviously an office chair and this is pretty comfy.
I’m using my MacBook Pro with my iPad as a second screen (I love this feature so much!) and all the desk accessories are from the Container Store (honestly, I was just sad I couldn’t go to the Container Store because I love it so much)
Now you’ve seen mine, show me yours!
