Day Dreaming of the Perfect Home Office

Lately I have been completely obsessed with office/desk spaces. I think it’s probably because I’m tired of my current setup and am craving an update. Which is coming in a few months! When Adam and I move into our new apartment I am getting a desk makeover. I really wish we had enough space in our apartment to have a full on office, but as long as I get a functional (and beautiful) desk all to myself I will be happy! The move isn’t for a few months, but obviously I already have ideas on what I want.

These are just a few of the spaces that are inspiring me right now. I’m looking for something simple and affordable that I can hold onto for many years to come. I really like the idea of having trestle desk, but without an IKEA within 1,000km (1,254km away to be exact) finding an affordable version could be tough. It’s a good thing I love scouring the internet for good deals and I’m always up for a good DIY project. To be honest, I already found plans for a DIY desk that I love and I would be perfectly happy to make my own.

I tried to find a link for the fourth desk space, but could only find random Tumblr links instead of the source. If anyone knows where to find it, please let me know!

Aside from the Trestle desk, I’m also trying to find the perfect office chair. I want something that is so comfortable that I will be excited to use it… Otherwise, I know that I will end up on the couch or in my bed which completely lowers my productivity levels. I really love the look of Eames style chairs, but I’m not sure how comfortable they are. They also come with a hefty price tag most of the time which doesn’t really go along with my student-living-on-a-budget status.

I’m also pretty torn between worlds. I love clean minimalist design, but also get inspired by cluttered mood boards and pretty accessories. Which brings me to my next obsession: beautiful office accessories! I am lusting over so many beautiful office supplies at the moment, and am also working on a post to organize them all together. I’ll keep you posted! Check out my Pinterest board Inspire for more of my desk inspiration.
