The Blogger’s Office

In case you missed my Guest Post for Let it Be Beautiful

I’ve always dreamed of having a perfect space to work in and out of and as of a few months ago, the hubby and I moved into our first house (rental, but still … a house!)  Until this major life move, we had existed in tiny apartments with tiny bathrooms and tiny closets and hardly enough room for a Costco shop, let alone an office.  But now the “office” is filled with crafts (trust me, a wonderful thing to be full of), but I buy crafts every time I get bit with an idea, so the piles are growing, and my sweet little desk, it’s nearly bare.  I do most of my work perched on my sofa, staring woefully at the office just across the way.  Clearly my little office/craft-room needs an upgrade and a bit of TLC!

Because I know everyone dreams of a glamorous office (I mean, who doesn’t pin gorgeous workspaces on Pinterest?), I thought I’d break down what’s in my dream office first …

1.  If I’m going to try out this whole fashion blogger thing with my very own fashion blogger office, I’d like to look the part!  I’d love a bold chair (preferably with grommets or animal print!), a bold floor rug, and a sleek desk big enough to accommodate all of my junk. #hoarder

2.  An inspiration wall.  I’m torn between a chalkboard wall and a corkboard wall, though I’d venture to guess the corkboard is easier for tacking idea after idea.

3.  Organization!  I dream in organization — in perfectly-placed shelves and ergonomic storage.  I’d store documents, ideas, and most importantly – my crafts!  Also, the Container Store is magical.

So there you have it!  Now it’s your turn.  Tell me, what is it you look for in a perfect place to work/get-inspired? Are you happy on the sofa?  Do you work best at a desk?  Are you a neat freak or a stuff-collector?

    I’ve totally done a post like this! I used to tell me (now ex) boyfriend that we needed a two bedroom home, one for sleeping, one for a closet/office. I’d want my clothes visible, to help stimulate inspiration. and I prefer a corkboard, but maybe ALSO a whiteboard to write down reminders.

    oh! and DulceCandy’s is the most perfect I’ve seen, you should check it out!

  3. This looks awesome! Definitely go with the cork board, less messy, easier to layer ideas, more visually pleasing.
    Have fun creating your beautiful blogger space. 🙂

  4. Very organize and it really looks so professional. I certainly would like to have my own inspirational wall!
