Jeremy and I both work at home. When people ask us if we like it, that’s a loaded question! We love it SO much. But it comes with its pros and cons. One of the biggest challenges I have to work on is cleaning up after my projects consistently daily. In the early years of this blog before we were married or lived together, I used the main living room of my apartment as a giant studio. It was a mess basically 100% of the time. I think the only times it was ever really presentable were for photos of the space. I thrive in and love a messy workspace. But that doesn’t always work for a peaceful home life.
Well, Jeremy married me anyway and we’ve both compromised a lot to find balance. He is very patient with my blog project messes and I am becoming much more mindful about cleaning up after a long day of creative mess.
Which brings me to my point! This office is much much more about the storage than it is about the actual workspace. For projects I tend to hop from room to room. But I need a well-organized place to store all my DIY supplies, props and random equipment. This room will be mostly functional (and hopefully as beautiful as possible!) storage as well as a place for a computer desk, my printers and a comfy office chair.
This room was previously a study. So it won’t need any remodeling. Just a little bit of paint and decorating to make it feel like me. The built in bookshelves are AMAZING. I need a lot of space for my bins of supplies, so this is perfect!
Should I add wallpaper to the back of the bookshelves OR do an accent wall behind my desk?
Any bright ideas for this space? It’s small, but I think it’s exactly what I need as far as storage and a spot to answer emails goes! xx. Elsie
