Simple Work Desk Setup with Studio.co.uk

It’s September, a month which to me resembles the beginning of the end. It’s sad isn’t it but I love summer so much and I’m desperately clinging on to it. Today is the first day of autumn and I’m so happy it’s a sunny and crisp day, makes it a lot easier to cope. September is so close to Christmas which means that the year is almost over. For some, September means a new beginning and I’m going to try my hardest to see it like that this year.

September is when the schools start again and people are coming back from holidays getting stuck into work again. I actually went on holiday just last week, to sweet Paris, but I’m back and ready to take on all the to dos. I’m going to make September my new start with the blog. I have mentioned in a previous post that I should probably get myself a desk and a work space where all my blogging and bullet journaling can happen. Thanks to Studio and the August theme (yes I know I’m late) – back to work – it’s happened. I’ve now got my own work desk and blog space set up in my bedroom.

Work Desk

White Home Office Desk

I really like this desk. It has everything I need, without it looking bulky or take up too much space. I mean look at it, it fits perfectly on this wall, as if it’s meant to be! Two shelves and a desk area with a draw and storage compartment fits everything I need. I’m aiming to keep it this clean all the time. I don’t need clutter as it’ll take away from me focusing on what this work space is for – blogging.

I was sad the desk is only available in light brown though, and not white which I prefer. But, I love myself a good paint and DIY job so once again transformed a piece of furniture and made it my own. I went for a glossy paint finish in the hopes it’ll be easier to clean. The frame has an industrial feel to it and being black there’s no need but to keep it in its original style. I have ordered a yellow chair to go with the desk, to make the space an room pop. All other furniture in my bedroom are white and bed throw and lamp grey so a bit of colour is in need.

Work Desk Decor

Aside from my laptop and bullet journal I’ve decorated the desk with an inspiring quote (The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams) and a photo frame with a photo from one of my biggest achievement in life – the British Citizenship Ceremony. I like inspirational quotes to keep me motivated but also looking at things I’ve already accomplished. It helps me remember that I can achieve anything I set my mind to and if I want something done, just do it!

I’ve also given the shelf some life with an ivy and a burning candle for these cold evenings we seem to be getting more of. It’s mojito scented and gives off a lovely refreshing smell. I love that the candle holder is an old wine bottle, upycling at its best. Can’t start September without some new stationery, finally making use of my personalised coloured pencils in my bullet journal.

    Love this! And you’re right it fits into the space perfectly 🙂 As if it was meant to be! I very very rarely use my desk upstairs to blog or work at. It’s a bit of a shame really. I’m forever blogging from the sofa with Netflix on it the background.

      Thank you, I’m very pleased. Ha, I’ve been blogging with Netflix in the background too but that’s why it takes me forever to get a post done. I’m hoping sitting here at my desk and I can see Netflix as a reward afterwards, when I’m done 🙂 x

    I can’t believe how perfectly the desk fits! I love it white, and the styling is fab! It’s the perfect desk with handy shelves and everything you need in one place. Definitely have desk envy right now! We have a desk in each bedroom, but some shuffling is needed, because mine especially takes up a lot of room, I’d love something smaller like this. I do need to make more use of mine too. Thanks for the code, I used it tonight 🙂 xx

      Thank you Tina! I should have got a desk long ago but I’m happy I waited to get one of these, the shelves are very practical. Yay, glad the code works 🙂 x

    Such a cute addition to your space! It’s so nice having your own desk, I love my home office desk. I’m constantly rearranging things on it too to keep it less cluttered. You can get glass cut to the size of the top so that it’s even easier to clean too!

      Thank you 🙂 So far so good, I’m keeping it very tidy but it might change. That’s a really good idea and then I could keep postcards or similar in between for decoration.
