Wednesday Wishlist: Home Office

If you follow me on Twitter you may know that I've been given the green light to use the spare room as a home office. It will still be used as a guest bedroom housing a single bed but it will also be my 'creative room'. I work on a freelance basis together with blogging and I often find myself, like I am now, sat with my laptop on the kitchen table. It's often busy in here and is not a very calm place so a few months ago I suggested to boyfriend that the box room should be mine. At first he was keen, then not so but finally he's cleared it all out and said "Run with it".

So I am running with it.

The walls are magnolia and while I'd love it to be white, I don't think I'll change it any time soon. The bed will stay but will be used a day bed for reading and relaxing with lots of pillows up against the wall and cosy throws. In the corner there'll be a white desk but as of right now I'm not sure if it's cheaper to buy a white corner desk, buy an any colour desk or make one (boyfriend is still deciding). I do know that I want it to be light, airy and girlie as since it's quite a small space I really want to get the maximum appeal from it. I'm a fan of trinkets that can look pretty and be productive like the boxes and glass tub and in general I just want to make it a space where I want to read, write and sew. By the time I am done for the day being a mother it's difficult to want to do creative things in a messy space and I am definitely one of those 'tidy home, tidy mind' people.

Would you all be interested in a room makeover type post? It may take several months to get things spot on in there but updates, I can do. Please let me know!


  1. I've do to see you do a make over post. Hopefully when we get into a house one of the spare rooms will be my office and craft room so I'd love some inspiration. You have some great picks here already - I love that bottle canvas especially. All the best in your decorating!

  2. Ooo yes! I love the lamp and the canvas picture of flowers. Looking good so far!

  3. Yay! I am 100% up for a room makeover post, it sounds positively blissful. I really like a lot of your picks up there too- the room will look so lovely xx

  4. I'm busy furnishing my whole apartment at the moment and these are all so lovely! Wilkinsons has such a great range of home furnishing x

  5. Oooh these are lovely picks! Great that you'll have your own little space, it would be lovely to see it when it's done! xx

  6. Love the lamp :) I can see a lot of these going with my new bedroom colour scheme. I'm thinking of getting lots of glass items like the trinket box. Plus the clock is almost identical to my lampshade :).

  7. I would love to see your progress on it! I'm currently trying to get my home office in order and think the most motivating thing about redecorating is seeing others doing it too! I love the girliness of all that you have chosen here too :)
