If you remember from our living room tour, we had a bit of space in the other recess to the side of the fireplace. We had thought of just letting toys fill the space but there were two problems with that:
1) No child needs that many toys.
2) Mark and I kind of needed a place for us too. To work.
The thing is, I was really unsure about it going there.
I started having thoughts about the ‘flow’ of the room. And then when I realised that I was being a prick, we went to IKEA and found a solution.
We chose the MALM desk, which comes with a drawer and cupboard that you can place on the desired side.
The panda bear is from Tigerlillyquinn Shop and the metal lady is actually a bell in disguise that I rescued from a charity shop many moons ago.
It has a great view from the window and you can procrastinate a little bit if you’d like to, just by people-watching.
He’s a PC. I’m a Mac. But we get along just fine.
The custom ampersand mousemat is from notonthehighstreet.com.
The M initial mug was a little gift I bought for Mark from Matalan. I’m waiting for the C to come back in stock. Sigh.
The glitter-striped washi is from Oliver Bonas. The other two as mention above.
The I Am So Freaking Organised Sticky Notes are a bit of a favourite of mine. The only problem is that I can’t bring myself to use them!
The bottle is actually just an empty bottle of Lorina Pink Citrus Lemonade that I saved because it was just so pretty! I saw this bottle light from Oliver Bonas and I knew exactly what I was going to use the bottle for! Don’t you think it’s genius? It’s charged via USB too, so there’s no fiddly batteries and it will never run out!
So I suppose this is where the magic happens. As far as work goes at least!
