Styling a Pinterest-Worthy Workspace with Pops of Colour

Best desks with drawers

When we moved into our new house, naturally the first room to be decorated and unpacked was my office/studio! I really wanted a space that felt like a professional studio instead of just a bedroom I was working out of. I spent a lot of time on Pinterest in the months leading up to our move and I had a solid idea of the sort of decor I wanted… clean, fresh white walls with bright pops of colour – a total Pinterest-worthy workspace!

Best flatpack desks

My desk was a gift from the lovely folks at Kit Out My Office and it’s the perfect addition to my studio with it’s clean, white tabletop and bright green drawers peeking out from underneath. It couldn’t be better if I’d designed it myself, right? It arrived flat packed in 4 packages and was really easy to put together – a bit like an IKEA piece, but some of the work was already done for you! I only needed help to lift the desk top when the drawers were attached because man, that beast was heavy!!

unusual desk accessories

I love my kooky accessories, they make for great Instagram peeks into my life and they’re fun to fiddle with when I’m on the phone or staring blankly with lack of thought or inspiration (not that it happens much of course!! *ahem*…). The travel inspired art was just something I pulled out of a scrapbooking kit and my colour wheel coaster/speaker stand was a bargainous chopping board from Home Bargains of all places. My awesome Big Bruv bought me the desk lamp for Christmas a couple of years ago and it finally has pride of place where it belongs. It didn’t really go in my teeny tiny office at the old house.

KikkiK Planner

A Pinterest Worthy Workspace

I’ve recently become a Kikki.K obsessive and I’m now the proud owner of the large planner in mint. I’ve never been good at using diaries and planners in the past, but actually I’m a convert this time and I take it everywhere with me! The fun pen pots were super cheap from IKEA and I have some bigger storage to match that I will share with you next time.

The drawers in my colour splash desk are really deep, perfect for storing all my photography props in one and my vast postage collection in the other. Seriously… I have a roll of customs labels, earring and necklace packaging, four types of stamps, address labels, a proof of postage pad, fragile & airmail stickers and a bunch of mailing bags all in one drawer. Best.

    Ah, thank you! The “Go.See.Do” print was from a scrapbooking pack I bought in the clearance section of TK Maxx. I always find great craft supplies there!
