I’ve been thinking about updating my office for some time now. Since the office needs to serve for my design work and editor’s work as well, I’m finding it hard to keep it organised. It seems that once I clear my desk, it gets cluttered pretty much the following day. I have boxes covering every inch of the floor space and have no efficient filling system at all.
And so today when I was approached by one of my suppliers about a table lamp they have on offer, my mind went into overdrive. I want to change the rug, the colour scheme, create a proper noticeboard, new storage, lighting, paint the furniture and make it all very chic and elegant but quite relaxed at the same time. And to do all this I have literally zero, yes ZERO, budget!! Okay, maybe peanuts. I have enough for purchasing a paint and a new rug – probably from Ebay or heavily discounted. The rest has to be “shopped” from around the house.
Here is the plan, which I quickly put together..
Luckily, I already have the wallpaper for the noticeboard so I don’t need that. The print art is from art.co.uk and isn’t that expensive at all. The rug is from Zara Home at the moment, which is on sale. I have to measure it properly though to see how much coverage it would give me under my desks. By the way, if I haven’t mentioned it, my office is in our conservatory which makes is quite hard to work with, considering that all 4 walls have either large windows or doors or both!!
This is the opposite wall..
I want to have an artificial grass element on the back wall. I’ve seen it in interiors before, especially sunrooms and conservatories and I really like the idea of it. I’m not sure if I’m going to have enough budget for it though so we’ll have to see how it goes.
