Desk Design Project

I’m very excited about this one.

My boyfriend recently landed a new job that is mainly work-from-home (what a jerk). He was given a desktop computer, a laptop, computer dock, etc. Right now, all of that stuff is on the dining room table under a mountain of unopened mail…I know…. Very uninspiring. Because of this, I can’t very well tell you how you should optimize your work-space if I’m witness for what can only be described as an affront to interior design. Therefore, before anything else, I will remedy this situation, posting updates periodically. Things can only go up from here.

Luckily for him, I am an expert in desk design–my blog says so, so it must be true. He is building his own desk (pictures to come), so at least we can waive that expense. I’m picturing a cozy but well lit space; obviously with ample plant-life seeing as the office room only has one small window. Somewhat related: why are area rugs so expensive? Let me know if you know any good websites for that. I’ve been scouring the inter-webs all day looking for unique design elements, I’ll include some of my favorites below–keeping in mind that this will be a man’s work-space, and not the Pinterest desk of my dreams (see Corgi Cactus Holder). However, if all goes well, I’ll assume my services will be in high demand; the line starts here, folks.

Again, more information to come on this project. If you have any ideas/design inspiration please don’t hesitate to share. I’m also on Pinterest so follow me if you’re interested in the aesthetic I will be trying to achieve.

Why Tiny Desk Plants?

Here for those in the windowless offices who’s idea of work-space personalization  is a rubber stapler and a mason jar full of highlighters. 

I know I don’t have to tell you how boring an office desk can be. If the only thing making your work-space feel like your own is the purse you stash underneath, then listen closely:

Studies show, time and time again, that an office devoid of that “touch of yourself”, make for miserable, and consequently, unproductive employees. More than 85% of an average person’s life is spent indoors. If you, like so many others, work a traditional 8 hour workday in an office, that percentage could likely be more. Being constantly engaged with a computer screen rather than the environment can cause a great deal of stress.

However, this is a problem that is easily solved. By decorating your office, you are then more engaged with your environment, and thus you will feel more comfortable and less stressed.

This website will assist you in an effort to create a work-space/home environment you actually enjoy instead of one you just exist in. Also, plants–they’re the best.

Send your office-inspo on Pinterest and I’ll try my best to recreate the “look” in my blog post!
