I have to admit, I’ve been a total slacker when it comes to using my home office space this summer. Most of the time I either work on the couch, at the kitchen table, or at my little vanity desk. But now that school is back in session and we’re in more of a regular routine around here, I want to start using my office again. It’s small space, but it’s one of my favorite areas in our home. And there’s just something about sitting at an actual desk that makes you feel more put together, right? If you work from home you know the struggle is reeeeeeeeal. Anyway, I switched a few things around to give the office a new look and feel for fall, so I thought it would be fun to share it with you lovely folks today!
Isn’t it a cozy little space? I’ve always loved this corner in our basement, especially after we added that shiplap and trim. I had the desk on the other wall for a while, but I moved it over to this side to mix it up and try something new. I love having it under that giant chalkboard!
I also hung up that pair of wall baskets on the right side of the chalkboard to give this area a little more texture. Those are great for extra storage too, but for now I just styled them with a few old books and those faux flowers. PS: those baskets are no longer available, but I found some that are very similar.
I decided to leave my antique Royal typewriter on the desk because it just feels like it belongs in this spot. It’s also kinda cool to see my laptop sitting next to that typewriter–talk about old vs new! Plus it’s still one of my favorite vintage finds ever. And to be honest I kinda want to find another one. I just LOVE old typewriters.
I’ve been feeling so motivated lately to be more productive and efficient with my time, so I’m really excited to get back into using this little office more regularly. It’s a simple corner but I feel like it’s the perfect spot to sit down with a cup of coffee and get things done, ya know? Anyway, thanks so much for dropping by today. I hope this post gives you an idea or two for your own home! xoxo
