I am sooo excited for today’s post because I’m finally sharing my workspace with you! You guys have seen small glimpses of my workspace in past posts, but now you get to see where all the magic happens! I’ve been putting off this post for the longest time because my workspace has been constantly changing.
Being the indecisive person that I am, I found myself constantly rearranging and redecorating this space. I wanted my workspace to be a bright and clean space where I could create new ideas. I’m a firm believer in creating a workspace that inspires you, and I finally feel like I have a space that looks and feels like ME! I hope that by sharing my minimalist workspace with you, it will encourage you to create your own inspiring space. I will also be sure to link where I got everything for my workspace at the end of this post.
You all probably know that my style gravitates towards modern, minimalist, and Scandinavian designs. I spent a great deal of time on Pinterest before I started redecorating my workspace. I encourage you guys to get some inspiration on what you want your own space to look like before you start buying things. This way you will have a cohesive style and know exactly what items to buy.
I decided to go with some simple white hanging shelves and modern silver brackets. I purposely misaligned the two shelves to create an illusion of movement. I placed some of my favorite plants, vases, and framed quotes on top of the shelves.
On the left side of my desk, I have a pendant caged light hanging freely. I’ve gotten a few requests to do a DIY post on this caged light fixture. I promise that it is coming soon!
On top of my desk, I like to keep a few of my cactus babies to keep me company while I work. I also keep a few books/magazines that inspire me and my good old laptop.
Since my space is very small, finding a desk that would fit was quite a challenge. I kept finding desks that I loved but were far too big for my space. Luckily, I found this beautiful white desk that fit perfectly! The simple design and white color really help make space look bigger than it actually is. I also have some hanging buckets on the side to help organize my art supplies.
The next step was to find a chair. You’ve probably seen this chair everywhere! I chose to go with it because it isn’t bulky and I love the minimalist design. If you are interested in getting a similar chair, I recommend spending a bit more and getting the design that comes with a cushion. Trust me, it’s so much more comfortable!
Last year, I created a DIY Grid Moodboard post with some metal grids from IKEA. Since it came in a two pack, I decided to use the other grid for my desk. I decided to keep it black to add some contrast with the white walls and desk. I love how I can hang my art tools on this grid for easy access.
I hope you guys enjoyed this sneak peek into my workspace. I am so thankful to have this small space that I can call my own. Working in an inspiring space really does inspire you to be creative and productive. I would love to hear about what your dream workspace would look like in the comment section below!
