At the moment, I do most of my blogging curled up on the sofa, laptop on my knee, with papers, notebooks and cameras strewn around me like confetti. As I am beginning to get a bit more serious about my blog, I often fantasise about having my own dedicated blogging work space. I would love a calm, organised corner of my home where I can settle in and really focus on my writing without distractions.
Our spare room is currently a playroom (aka a colossal mess!) filled with all the girls’ toys and any other stuff that doesn’t have a proper home. I have dreams of transforming this room into a hobby room and turning one little corner into A Mess In A Dress HQ.
Obviously you can’t have a home office without a desk. We already have an old pine one in the playroom, but as a blogger I’m going to need something a little more Instagram-worthy. Ikea is always the first place I look for stylish yet affordable furniture.
I absolutely love this white Hemnes desk with add on unit. It looks really pretty and also has a whole heap of storage – perfect for a hoarder like me who wants to get organised.
Seeing as we’re talking “dream office” I figure I may as well dream big and pick a computer I would probably never be able to afford in real life.
I was never really a fan of Apple computers until my husband let me borrow his and now I am a total convert. I am so insanely jealous of anybody who owns one of these bad boys, but at well over £1000 a time, I think it will be staying in dream territory for now.
The Office Supplies
As a self-proclaimed stationery addict, I could easily get lost in the Engelbert Strauss website. It has everything you could possibly need to set up a home office, from notebooks to pens, from desk organisers to paperclips.
They charge just an amazing £5.94 for delivery, with free delivery on all orders over £108. This seems like a great excuse to stock up on all the stationery I could ever need. (See – the extra storage on that desk is going to come in really handy.
My dream blog office wouldn’t be complete without some beautiful finishing touches. I have been lusting after the beautiful prints and planners from Dot Creates for a while now and I’m sure having them on the walls in my work space would help to keep me motivated. There are so many gorgeous ones to choose from.
I’ve also had my eye on their “Ultimate Blog Planner” for a while now so if anyone is looking for ideas for birthday gifts, look no further.
I really look forward to the day when I can turn my dream work space into a reality. Do you have a dedicated home office space or do you just work wherever you can?
